Mocha machine is a well-engineered endeavor in massive aromatics and rich flavors. Brewed with an array of British and German malts, this burly brew is infused with masterfully roasted coffee from Portola Coffee lab in Costa Mesa, CA. It is then aged on cacao nibs from Ecuador, adding an awesomely deep dimension of fudge.

Growler poured into a pint glass. Jet black with little head or retention. Nose is cocoa. Taste is cocoa and light roast. This is a delicious beer.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Almost black body. Small off-white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Lots of coffee. The same coffee aroma as Founders Breakfast Stout, but it's stronger. That dark rich coffee aroma. Almost earthy. Some dark chocolate.

Taste - Dominated by coffee. Very rich. Dark chocolate. Bitter coffee and bitter malt. Delicious.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Very nice coffee flavor. Impressive. Might need to pour some bourbon into this later.

Deep color. Smells of chocolate and coffee. The taste..the best Porter I've ever had. Tastes like coffee infused fudge. Velvety mouthfeel. Overall I can't say enough about this beer.
