Pours a dark, dark brown with a light brown foamy head with good retention and solid lacing.

Nose follows the name. Some roasted coffee notes, a bit of nuttiness. A lot of sweetness. Milk chocolate. Caramel malts.

Taste is sweet, milky chocolate, roasted coffee, some very lightly roasted nuts.

Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy. Super easy to drink. No carbonation. Definitely could drink 4 or 5 of these.

Overall, nothing sensational here. If you want a porter that you can down a six pack of in one sitting, I'd go with this one.

For those who like the taste of porter and the taste of mocha, this is the perfect marriage. Pours to a soft, creamy, golden head that doesn't last very long but that is not surprising for a black beer that has substantial body. All this capped off by just smidgen of hops (bitterness) in the aftertaste.

Look: Pours a VERY deep, dark brown color. Light does shone through the edges of the glass. About a two finger head that slowly dissipates to just a thin layer.

Smell: Very malty with a hint of chocolate, vanilla and coffee. The smell is good, but seems weak.

Taste: Very roasted malt flavor. Only a small hint of mocha, or any kind of chocolate and coffee.

Feel: Smooth and creamy, with a medium body feel.

Overall: I expect it to be better. But it's a good, drinkable beer.
