A: Pours a dark brown, mostly opaque body. Big, fluffy, khaki colored head. Nice lacing on the glass, and almost endless retention.

S: Smell is roasty. Dark Chocolate. Some oakiness. Vanilla-like sweetness. A bit of caramel.

T: Wow. TONS of roast, but its nice. There is a lingering sweetness that tastes like a just drank vanilla flavored hot chocolate. Hazelnut, almost toasted almond-like. Was not expecting this much flavor and complexity from the somewhat one-dimensional waft.

M: Medium-body. Moderate carbonation - a nice representation of the style. Creamy. velvety.

O: I was not expecting this beer to be so memorable. Glad to have received this from one of my best beer buds in the PNW some time ago. For being virtually never mentioned in the MW, this is quite the hidden gem.

Less porter and more brown ale in appearance, Mogli keeps a lush, almost luxurious brown hue. The head is stiff and thick and resembles a brown cream.

The nose holds a milky, creamy, marshmallow and vanilla. I may get a whiff of chocolate but it's not a lot.

The flavor is just vanilla. Creamy, thick vanilla!

The feel is thick and creamy as well but holds a touch of carbonated bite at the finish.

This is a vanilla lovers dream and a beer served much better after dinner.

Cocoa and milk chocolate smell. Taste mirrors the smell with added bitter dark chocolate and a little roasted malt. Very dry with a thin mouthfeel. Like drinking a chocolate bar.
