The best porter I've ever had. The smell is wonderful; a blend of coffee, chocolate, and beer. Almost perfect taste. I' would give it a 5 for taste but then my search is over. Slightly under carbonated.

Cold, poured from a bottle into a snifter

Appearance: Dark brown, almost black color, pours with a half-inch tan head which disappears quickly. Lacing clings down the side of the glass.

Smell: Malty & roasty with hints of dark chocolate and caramel.

Taste: Light carbonation, medium body,

Mouthfeel: Nice aroma of espresso and nuttiness lingers for a while. Nothing much of any mocha or chocolate as the name implies. The finish is dry but creamy.

Overall
The mocha name is a little misleading as I was hoping it would be in the taste. It's slightly on the too-hoppy side of how I like porters but not nearly as bad as an Anchor.

Dark brown pour with almost no head. Aroma is malty and roasted, with a hint of cocoa. Flavor is somewhat light, with barely a trace of chocolate, and only coffee notes in the dry finish. Not a bad beer, but needs more of the mocha all around.
