Sampled last night on 2/19/15. Comes in a '1 pint, 6 ounce', 22 ounce bottle (850ml) for around $7.00. Has a nice painted on label as do all their bottled beer does. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a 20 ounce handled-glass stein.

Brew pours a very deep mahogany with some ruby-highlights. A good 3-finger foamy beige head is seen after the pour that lasts a good while before settling down to around 3-5mm. A decent amount of lacing is seen when sipped that sticks to the inside of the glass. The aroma is of roasted malts for the most part with a light hint of coffee I believe. More going on with the taste but the mocha is very light actually as I was expecting more of that flavor. Does have a light hint of nuts along with the coffee. The finish is slightly bitter and hangs around for a bit. Medium-bodied with perfect carbonation. Overall it isn't a bad Porter as I had better for a cheaper price though. Had better though.

I was not a fan at all of this beer. Drank from a chilled bottle, it smelled like coffee and sugar, but was bitter, and the mocha gave it an awesome aftertaste. Maybe it's just not for me, but I did not enjoy this beer one bit and will not be drinking it again.

A pretty good porter overall, but I'm not getting the Mocha part. Some coffee bitterness as it warms, but no hint of chocolate. Still it looked great after the pour and hit quite a few of the marks for a Porter.

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.
