4.73/5 rDev +21%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
A- Very nice dark inky color, a little bit of brownish hue, brown head, nice lacing and retention. I could tell I was going to enjoy it just by the sheer darkness.
S- Smells really good, you smell the coffee right off the bat, smells a bit roasty, mild malts.
T- There's kind of a hoppy pinch when it first hits the tongue, roasted/ almost caramel/ nutty malt kind of taste, you can definitely taste the rich coffee and malt, they blend very well, this can be compared to Terrapin's Wake-n-Bake stout, since a porter with coffee is essentially a stout.
M- Slight carbonation, smooth, goes down just like coffee, coffee after taste, leaves you wanting another after another if you're a die hard coffee fan and beer nut.
O- Overall a very nice stout since Highlands Mocha stout tastes mostly of cocoa powder and has plenty of room for improvement, I couldn't come up with a decision at Whole Foods as usual, but I saw the last sixer and know I know why, its simply delicious and I know it won't be around long.

4.05/5 rDev +3.6%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: ½” creamy off white head, beer is nearly black—almost no light penetration. No carbonation bubbles visible.
Aroma: Coffee, Roasted Barley, Dark Chocolate
Mouthfeel: medium to heavy bodied, moderately carbonated, rich, finish is similar to dark coffee.
Flavor: A coffee infused porter that tastes exactly as advertised. Coffee/Expresso is the dominant flavor. In addition there is some chocolate malt, toffee, and a mild hop presence. I don’t pick up a great deal of fruit flavors as the brewer advertises, maybe some orange peel and a little raisin. Overall: very good cold weather beer, I would not be able to down this one in Summer. A give this beer a solid A grade for the style.
