The Mocha porter pours a black as night with a head that stays only for a second or two.

The aroma of the porter is of chocolate and roasted malts.

The taste is real smooth and is balanced of chocolate, coffee and the roasted malts. Overall a refreshing porter either on a hot summer day or a lonely cold one in the winter.

12 oz bottle, probably quite old. Dark black with bloody edges. A big tan head lasted quite a while and left some nice lacing to boot. Aromas are all chocolate, caramel, espresso, and smoke. The taste is smoky up front with some roasted malt notes in the middle and some big espresso notes in the finish. wow, maybe aging this has made it into more of a smoked porter, than a mocha one. The mouthfeel was creamy and just right and the drinkability was good as well. A cheaper, not as good, AKSmokedPorter!

A - This beer poured a dark brown color which produced a nicely sized, fluffy, light brown head which had good retention and a nice bit of lacing

S - The aromas of this beer had some of the chocolate and coffee tones you would expect from a Porter, but the hops are a little too much in this one

T - The taste of this beer was actually its strong point, a start of toasted malts is were this beer begins, anda bitter chocolate taste soon develops into a sweet one, the hops really do not show up

M - The mouthfeel of this beer had a medium body to with a moderate amount of carbonation

D - This beer gets good marks because I can get a 6-pack of it, but it is still a little high and the price a flavor of the Sierra Nevada Porter beat this one out
