Notes/Commercial Description:
With several talented artisan roasters in town, we invited Richmond’s beer and coffee lovers to vote in a blind taste-off on our collaboration partner for the 2012 Mocha Belgique. They selected Black Hand Coffee Company! Black Hand’s custom roasted Brazilian coffee melds artfully with chocolate and caramel malts, cacao nibs and the fluffy character bestowed by our signature Belgian yeast, for a beer that exudes mocha goodness.

Rich, dark auburn in color with a frothy cappuccino head, Mocha Belgique offers pleasant, fresh roasted coffee and cocoa aromatics with a hint of black currant. Chocolate character up front is enhanced with the fluffy mouthfeel imparted by our distinctive Belgian ale yeast. Black Hand’s well balanced coffee provides a lingering roasty finish.

seven-fifty from the Caboose, Ashland

a: served in a st. bernie chalice, mocha belgique pours a deep chocolate brown in color with a low head that soon disappears

s: aromatic, strong but smooth iced coffee nose with a firm note of semisweet chocolate, medium tones of banana and clove, some underlying malt sugar, nice with a high quality coffee addition

m: carbonation low to nearly nonexistent, medium to medium-full body, smooth

t: follows closely along with the nose, showing a smooth, flavorful coffee addition blended through a firm roasted malt body, touches of sugar, and hints of yeasty esters and spice

o: it's an odd combination, but it works nicely, worthwhile
