Sorry for the stunted review, but until there's an app, it's going to be hard to review beers from bars and restaurants...

Poured very dark brown and left a sticky tan lacing on the pint glass. Looks good.

Smells malty and I can get the mocha (slightly). I expected a stronger nose.

I get the mocha taste, but it's more malt (like malted milk) than mocha. Slightly bitter, maybe too overly hopped.

The body is a little too watery for my preference. It is disappointing.

Overall, it's not bad, but it didn't blow me away.

The name of this beer is inviting, but after going inside you realize its hype is *a bit* oversold.

Serving vessel is a Chimay goblet.

Looks fine. Dark brown. Head is nice and brown, and it has good hang time---a light sheen remains to the last sip.

Smell seems a little weak to me, not enough to complain, but I was hoping for a stronger aroma of everything. Still though, a big inhale reveals some good maltiness and chocolate notes.

Taste is a bit hot. At 8.2 I would think it could have been masked more. After your palette gets accustomed, it becomes more agreeable.

Mouthfeel is straight down the line porter---what you would expect.

Overall, not my favorite of this genre. It is drinkable, but I might select a Yeti or Southern Tier version before this. I would not turn it down though.

Love the regular mocha porter. Loads of awesome chocolate here on the nose, really not much else. No coffee or roastiness to speak of as I would expect from a porter. The flavor is nearly chocolate syrup, but short of cloying. Thick and viscous with just adequate carbonation. Really more of an imperial stout. Despite being off of the porter style, this beer is damn good. Great for dessert, just like their double stout.

This beer will catch you off guard. First off I suggest you don't smell this beer because it may stray you away at first...but don't let that fool you. Smell is a really sweet, but not that great of smell. The up front taste right when it hits your lips and tounge is really sweet and hoppy...AGAIN don't let that fool you..the after taste is crazy good. Very Mocha/coffee like. Lots of Chocolate too. This beer is pricey, but I recommend you give it a try if you are into dark beers.
