A: Pours a slighly thin looking chestnut brown color with a pretty creamy sand colored head. Leaves some tight patches of lace down the glass.

S: The more I smell this, the more I'm getting s'mores out of here. Slightly burnt marshmallow, powdery graham cracker and lots of cocoa. Toffee, charred oak and some faint mocha.

T: Lots of sweet cocoa flavors mingling with roasted malt, espresso and burnt chocolate. Some marshmallow, some coffee like acidity and a lingering burnt brownie finish. Just a little hot for something this "low" in ABV, but still pretty smooth. I really like this. I thought Caldera was solid, but I didn't know they had something like this in them. Nice work.

Bottle to FW Snifter
22oz

Pretty sure this is a 2012 Bottle. Calderas website says year round brew now.
White wax

App- A large and deep brown with a border of black to it. A big deep center with a good 1-1/2 finger. Fell to a 1/4" of bubbles and had a lot of nice cling and lace to it. A nice looking porter. Thats for sure.

Smell- Wow. Can we say that someone melted down a pure chocolate bar and added some whipped cream and blended with some good malts and called it a beer. A little tinge of cocoa powder on top of other aromas and the oak is well hidden.

Taste- Its got a lot going on in the glass in terms of depth of flavor but what it really boils down to is a good couple base layers that melded well together and created a nice complexity. Chocolate syrup like with some grain cocoa powder intermixed with a good deep malt base to give that porter flavor and a little bit of that oak flavor with a bit of wood bite. Nice to see the ABV kept down to really make it more flavorful instead of a boozy mess.

Mouth- A very large medium almost bordering on full bodied and a deep medium carbonation. A bit creamy and thick. The chocolate is the main residual flavor inside this beer.

Drink- A very good porter. I enjoyed the layers and richness on this. Wouldve been nice to have this with a dessert of somesort.

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.

Got this one at Bert’s Bierhuis in Utrecht. Had been wanting to try this one for a while, so it was cool to see it show up locally.

From a bomber into a snifter
White wax
Oak aged imperial porter with chocolate

APPEARANCE: Clear brown pour yields a two finger, medium looking, fluffy, light tan head with good retention. Dark brown body with lots of carbonation. Piles of carbonation everywhere. Head slowly fades to a thick foamy cap that’s supported by all the crazy carbonation all over the place. Eventually fades to a splotchy wisp that leaves decent lacing down the glass. This is okay but the carbonation is just out of control.

SMELL: Oak and definite chocolate on the nose. Chocolate truffles or bon bon, even. Light vanilla and sweet cream from the oak, but chocolate is definitely the dominating trait here.

TASTE: Chocolate up front with oak and some vanilla flavor as well. Lingering and bold aftertaste of milk chocolate truffles, oak, sweet cream, a hint of hop bitterness with some alcohol too. A bit of spicy alcohol right at the swallow, which was rather unexpected. Pretty flavorful, but the chocolate is rather overdone.

PALATE: Thinner body with higher levels of carbonation. Lighter on the palate, slightly airy, does down okay and finishes a bit sticky.

OVERALL: Okay I guess. There are some good things here, but the feel is a bit too thin and light, it’s too carbonated, and the chocolate could be toned back a bit. Not something I’d necessarily go for again, but wouldn’t turn down a glass of a future batch of this. A few tweaks and it could be a real treat.

Pours a very dark brown color, with a medium brown finger of head. The aroma screams chocolate, soft roast, vanilla, hints of coffee. Taste has heavy chocolate, some vanilla, coffe, roast, brown sugar. Body is medium to full, creamy with a lower carbonated feel.

The oak aging comes up minimally, if at all, but doesn't take away from its already flavorful nature. Über-good.

Very dark brown with little head retention. Chocolate dominates the nose. Oakiness combines with the chocolate on the tongue. This is damn near a desert except that sugar is kept in check. Heavier body and bitter finish with moderate carbonation.

Bottle shared with friends at a weekend tasting. Thick dark brown pour. Aroma dominated by milk chocolate, with notes of vanilla, oak, bourbon. The taste follows the same notes, very heavy on the chocolate. Excellent beer.

looks like the old experimental chocolate coke (remember that?), with no head on my first pour, and a tiny little bit of transparency to it. no lacing (well, almost none) but it looks very nice, an elixir waiting to be had (I've been smelling this already- hence, the elixir...)
smell is all chocolate.... not the bitter kind of chocolate, but like a chocolate fountain at one of those expensive sunday buffets. I gotta give this one a 5 on aroma.... this is truly beautiful....
taste is all chocolate also, and neither is bitter, but a dessert type of chocolate. it feels a little thin, and there is some alcohol in the taste, but this is a nice taste. not much else i'm tasting however, just a lot of good chocolate and some thin alcohol sheen. someone else mentioned 'chocolate syrup'.... I think that is the taste I am getting.... cocoa powder is another relative description, kind of like the cocoa powder at Starbucks....
a happy porter, I like that it references their 'best friend'. very decent, very nice. very rich, a little bitter on the back end, but overall a great brew!

Review based on bottle with over a year of age on it. Has a nice vanilla and chocolate blended flavor and smell. Slight notes of the oak aging. Decent mouthfeel. Overall, just a fantastic blend of flavors with nothing dominating. Great beer.

Bottle:
Pours deep brown bordering on black, with a nice buildup of head on a vigorous pour. The tan head reduces to a nice foam, fading slowly and lacing the the glass. It doesn't take much if a swirl to generate a froth.

The nose immediate brings chocolate without much inhaling. My first real sniff brings about more of cocoa-based chocolate, with some coffee and oat notes hinting that the beer might not be all sweet.

The taste follows the nose quite well, cocoa, chocolate, coffee with cream up front. The taste dies have a coffee-astringent bitterness coming in the mid-taste transition. During this I also note a brief dark cherry taste before the end brings a somewhat surprising bitter end (cherry woodiness), which does mellow slightly with warmth.

The feel is medium up front, but seems to weaken late, somehow. Maybe another way to put it is the flavors are robust up front, but fade to a singular bitterness which has a bit of wateriness to it. Warmth brings out more if a woody dryness.

This was a tale of two beers, a lovely full beginning, if perhaps a tad malty; and a contrasting, slightly resinous bitter end that also seems to kill the nice tastes from the front a bit too much. My mixed interpretations leaf to a reduced rating from where I thought this could go.

White waxed 22oz bottle, poured into a teku glass, 2013 vintage

A- pours a deep but not quite opaque black color with a small creamy khaki colored head that retains into a film on top, leaving some short lasting lace behind

S- first impression on the aroma is of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Beyond that, layers of whipped cream, coconut, dark cherry, booze soaked toasted oak, vanilla, burnt toffee & a hint of coffee and chocolate to close it out

T- deep layers of chocolate complexity up front mix with notes of caramel malt, malted milk balls & heavy vanilla cream. Hints of herbal hop and booze soaked black cherry. The oak presence isn't notched until the finish, but adds nice nutty & earthy notes in the close

M- medium body with moderate-light carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish, highly drinkable

O- a very approachable, yet complex porter. Chocolate takes center stage, with underlying oak that adds good contrast to the chocolate sweetness, very good

Sampling a cellar temp 22 oz wax sealed bottle that I poured into a chalice.
The beer pours a rich cocoa brown color with a minimal fizzy brown head that fades rapidly to a wispy island and the thinnest of edge layers. The aroma is some sweet chocolate milk and a bit of brown sugar. I dont really get any hops or alcohol on the nose, and only the faintest of vanilla shows up from the oak spirals.
The first sip reveals a velvety smooth body with very fine yet tingly carbonation. Flavor is sweet and malty with chocolate candy, hints of vanilla and brown sugar. I dont get any hops or booze presence anywhere on the beer. It is a sweet chocolate beer from start to finish and doesnt show any alcohol as I work through the bottle. This beer could be great with dessert and is a nice night cap for today.
I enjoy the beer and think the booze is well hidden. Its a good beer at a decent price point that I would try again.

Bottle (2011)

Thanks for opening this with me, BdubleEdubleRUN!

(Aged for 1+ year)

Very dark brown in color, but not bordering on black. Small brown head of very small bubbles. Leaves the glass oily and spotted with stick.

Intense chocolate and vanilla layers in the aroma. This one took me aback; I simply wasn't expecting it to be as rich, decadent, and enjoyable as it is. Along with the vanilla and chocolate layers is good amounts of oak and dark molasses fruit cake.

The flavor is just as nice as the aroma. The layers of chocolate and molasses fruit cake are extremely expressive, complemented very nicely by a bit of oak, though it's not overpowering. An incredibly well-crafted beer.

Medium to nearly full in body with low carbonation.

I'm glad Brett hates beer because I couldn't have sat on this one as long as he did. Thanks go to him for sharing.

Enjoyed a glass of this last night at Caldera's tap house.

Pours a very dark brown color, with a thin off white head.

Aromas are of very dark semi sweet cocoa with hints of cream and coffee.

Flavors are just like the nose. Dark cocoa, semi sweet, creamy, with some brown sugar, espresso, and hints of oak. Finish is crisp, with really subtle booziness.

Mouthfeel is nice, full, smooth, and lightly carbonated.

Overall this is outstanding. This is an excellent beer that you can really taste the dark chocolate, but it still retains the flavors of a robust porter too. The balance is nice, very well done Caldera. Even my wife liked this, and she is not a fan of dark beers.

Been wanting to try this one for a long time.

Served in an Olde Hickory glass.

A: Poured out a burnt caramel, brown color, much more translucent that I was expecting and with quite a big head for a barrel-aged beer.

S: Tootsie Roll in a glass. Seriously, this has a chocolatey, chewy olfactory quality to it. No barrel-aging detected... yet.

T: If the bottle weren't labelled and someone poured this for me sight-unseen, I would have thought this was Souther Tier's "Choklat (without the weird aftertaste)." Huge cocoa nib/truffle flair with the oak only evident under VERY close inspection (perhaps on the finish?).

M: Thick and gooey, like any dessert beer should be. This brew is absolutely the perfect ABV and sweetness level for the dessert brew that it is.

O: This was $16.95 and I thought it was worth every penny.

Had on tap @ Capitol Beer and Tap in Sacramento, CA on 03/03/15

Appearance - Served up in a 12oz snifter with a thin, broken layer of cocoa powder colored surface suds. The brew itself is black with cola brown edging.

Smell - Predominant chocolate aroma that evokes images of moist chocolate cake with fudge frosting. Lovely.

Taste - Doesn't quite follow the nose, with earthen chocolatey flavor more akin to dry cocoa powder mixed with a smidge of baker's chocolate. Hints of roasted malt and a light touch of coconut, but this thing is all about the chocolate.

Mouthfeel - Full body with low to moderate carbonation and a dry, chalky texture.

Overall - Glad I tried it, but more glad I didn't drop a grip by buying this in bomber form. It's good, but a bit too much of a one-track flavor profile. Vaguely reminds me of the Boulder Shake Chocolate Porter, but considerably more expensive.

Picked up this bottle on a recent trip to Ashland. 2011 vintage (the only one so far). Tasted 24 August 2012, reviewed from notes.

Pours relatively clear but dark chocolate brown. A rich chocolate lab brown, with about one finger of medium-tan head. Okay retention, not a whole lot of lacing.

Smell is totally dominated by the chocolate. Almost like Southern Tier's big stouts, in the way that it feels semi-artificial, though I realize that might just be the aspects of chocolate that usually come out in beer. But I don't really like it. A fair amount of vanilla oak. Chocolate, oak, vanilla, then porter. Porter base is on the sweet side, more like an English porter than the char-roast Americans.

Taste is not all that exciting. Again, it's dominated by the chocolate, and I wish there was more porter in it. Not a whole lot going on. Lacking richness, depth, and darkness. Like a bland porter with chocolate in it. Little obvious malt presence, and very low bitterness.

Very light feeling, especially for a so-called imperial porter, which should be a big beer.

A good beer, but not great. I found myself liking it less and less as I drank it. Sure, I can drink it, but calling this an imperial porter is a stretch. Chocolatey, whew! Wish there was more to it.

Drank from a 1 pint 6 fl ozs white wax dipped bottle purchased at Whole Foods Market, New York, NY
Served in a snifter

The beer poured dark chestnut brown and, considering the relatively high ABV, a bit thin. A creamy, frothy, one-finger tall, khaki colored crown capped the liquid. The head quickly dropped to a long-lasting, thin and bubbly collar. Small, drippy steaks of lacing trickled along the glass.

Super intense vanilla notes dominated the aroma. The vanilla had a very strong bourbon element and reminded me a lot of high quality vanilla extract. Semi-sweet chocolate notes were apparent. Quite hot fudge-like. Chocolate chip cookie dough also came to mind.

The flavor profile was impressive yet straightforward. Super chcolatey. Rich and fairly sweet. Hot fudge might perhaps be the best comparison. Good amount of vanilla extract, yet not quite at the level found in the nose. The beer finished off-dry with toasted malt notes.

On the palate, the beer was somewhat thinner than I anticipated but still creamy, fluffy and smooth. The liquid contained a large bubbled, semi-aggressive effervescence that settled down with time.

Mogli is a tasty and enjoyable beer with an outrageously rich vanilla aroma. Even though this oak-aged porter fails to exhibit any oak or barrel character and may not be super complex, it is an interesting dessert beer that should be shared with a friend or two.

22 oz

Pours a very dark opaque brown, slight light penetration around the edges, with a thin light tan film for a head.

Smells of milk chocolate syrup, brown sugar, vanilla and oatmeal.

Tastes of milk chocolate, vanilla, oak, cinnamon, and a bitter nutty flavor somewhere around pecan.

Medium to full body with a stinging carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

This is an exceptionally tasty porter, flavorful and decadent. Highly enjoyable and very recommended if you manage to snag a bottle.

We cut a white waxed bottle, pouring a brew of impenetrable molasses brown into our large tasting snifters. The head stands two fingers tall and is comprised of large, soapy milk chocolate colored bubbles, showing decent retention. Punctate lacing is left around the glass as it fades. No haze or sediment is noted, and carbonation appears to be active at the edges. The nose fills with burning phenolic plastics, harsh fusel booziness that doesn’t necessarily scream “bourbon”, wet woodiness, cloyingly sweet chocolate syrups, tootsie roll sugars, creamy hot cocoa warmth, chocolate and burnt coffee malts, roasty black malts, fresh cherry flesh, coconut, vanilla wafers, and freshly printed newspaper. The oak agedness becomes much more sophisticated, but biting, as the beer warms. Our first impression is that the flavor isn’t as full and robust as we were hoping for, but the oak is nicely striking and representative throughout each stage of the sip. The taste begins with bourbon oakiness, vanilla extract, bitter chocolate and gritty pale maltiness, crystal metallics, sea saltiness, melted milk chocolate, basement mustiness, vanilla bean sweetness, and hot fusel alcohol. Coming to a peak through the center is an enhanced blend of candied brown sugar, syrupy chocolate cloy, raw pancake batter, continued oaky woodiness, rich metallic shell of baked beans, light grassy hops, and whipped chocolate mousse richness. The end speaks of cherry flesh, black pepper bite, smooth chocolate and somewhat wheaty maltiness, fig depth that reminds one of Quad maltiness, roasted chestnuts, bitter roasted char, hints of hazelnut coffee, marshmallow sweetness, cloven spice, red grape skin dryness, and smooth, sweet almond extract. The aftertaste breathes of soapy hops, oily lemon salve, bourbon, charred oak and burnt grassiness, under ripe strawberries, heavy brown maltiness, mild vinegar acidity, chalky powdered nutmeg and allspice, bitter roasted chocolate nibs, cherry and plum fruitiness, bandaged medicinals, vanilla cake batter, and amaretto. The body is light to medium, bordering on a bit thin and watery, while carbonation is solidly medium. Each sip, however, gives wonderfully creamy slurp, full smack, rich pop, and flowing glug. The mouth is cooled, frothed, and foamed, with creeping dryness and puck from the booze and the oak. Despite this, the hard palate is left slick and mobile. The abv is appropriate, and the beer disappears quickly.

Overall, the best thing about Mogli is his big bodied aroma. The chocolate, booze, and oak are all there, blending with ease across the senses, especially with warmth. That said, we were expecting a bigger, bolder, more flavorful sip to follow. This is, in part, our own faults, as we hyped this guy up in our heads on account of its superlative ratings, and it being a momentous review for us personally. So at times, while it reminded us of Southern Tier’s Choklat, it seemed watered down, thin, and less flavorful. Of course, they are different styles, but with oak and an “imperial” title, we had just come to expect a bit more here. What it did have going for it was that the flavoring represented chocolate as an entity tremendously, without making it overbearing, cloying, or too heavy. The oak and bourbon notes certainly played well off of this, giving a depth that was no doubt enjoyable. This was an interesting beer, and although a touch simplified, we are happy to have added it to our repertoire.

22oz bottle. Pours a dark brownish black with an inch plus of frothy light brown head. Some lacing. The aroma is very sweet. Milk chocolate, oak, vanilla, caramel, and slightly nutty. The taste is thick chocolate syrup and oak at first. Notes of vanilla and caramel with some more nuttiness. A bit roasty. Almost too sweet at times but the oak helps mellow it out a little. Still, a slow sipper due to the sweetness. Lots of carbonation with a velvety mouthfeel. Overall, borders on sicky sweet, but a solid brew nonetheless.

22oz with White Wax (not sure vintage)
5oz mini tasting snifter

A: Pours a really deep dark brown color. Didn't get too much head, be it the small glass, but what was there was a medium tan like color. Tight little bubbles. Left some sticking lacing and saw some alcohol feet.

S: Really nice nose here. Some roast character. Some of that vanilla from the oak is there. Marries well with the addition of chocolate. It really smells pleasant, and strangely I do get the chocolate milk reference. Good stuff.

T: Amped to say that the taste followed the nose on this. Really nice chocolate bitterness on the tip of the tongue. Not overly aggressive deep dark chocolate, more a smooth milk chocolate. That barrel character is really nice too. Rounds the mouth feel. Hints of vanilla playing with the chocolate and slight roast. Just a really easy drinking porter.

M: Medium leading to full. Not the chewiest beer.

White waxed bottle, which seems to be an early 2014 release from what I've read. Tootsie Roll in both the nose and the front of the palate, every sip starting with that characteristically light milk chocolate flavor. On the whole, it's a well-balanced drink - the sweetness never overwhelms. This allows some substantial humidor, vanilla, and molasses notes from the barrel to come through as well, blending wonderfully with the creamy chocolate overtones. Brown sugar populates the back end, rounded out by a crisp toasted almond finish. About as close as I've come to a true milk-and-cookies beer - and it offers the palate even more with those woody barrel flavors. Delicious.
