Notes / Commercial Description:
When the lights dim, the curtains pull back, and the Beledi starts, it is time for a Mystery Romp! This mocha colored ale, infused with chocolate and coffee, can best be described as a tasteful dance between a robust Porter and a rich stout.

Served out of the tap in my kitchen.
Pours very dark brown with a dark tan head that hangs on for a while.
Smell is dominated by coffee, but also some dark chocolate. Delicious.
Taste is like the smell. Unlike some beers with a big coffee nose, the coffee does not disappear in the taste. Also some dark chocolates that contribute to a very slight twang of bitterness at the finish.
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. low carbonation. Feels like a big beer; makes you realize that Porter and Stout are not just brothers but fraternal twins.
Overall: another fantastic beer from a new brewery right here in South Mississippi. Just like their Stabello Italian Lager, this beer could stand up tall anywhere in America.
Looking forward to serving this to friends.

Poured on tap at Mahogany bar
A- a nice black pour with small, tan head and lots of tiny bubbles. Little to no lace.
S- wow! This is as close to perfect as I've had. Just the right blend of coffee/chocolate with vanilla cream peaking through. Super lovely nose.
T- coffee is the in the forefront with a nice malty presence. A bit of toffee and a mild hop bitterness near the end.
M- medium body that goes down really smooth.
O- really impressed with this one. One of the better porters I've had. The blend is what makes this beer so good.

Very balanced coffee and chocolate up front but the tail end is left wanting.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong of coffee, some chocolate as well. Taste is bitter coffee up front, sweet chocolate at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a fine beer, especially if you enjoy coffee.

Had on-tap at Bulldog mid-city New Orleans. Served in a pint glass.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/4 inch head that doesn't last long.

S- Full-on chocolate/coffee goodness with some vanilla and caramel sweetness.

T- Excellent blend of coffee, chocolate and dark roast. So drinkable, borderline decadent.

M- Thick and semi-creamy. Medium carbonation and a full body.

O- Had to do a brief review cuz this guy at the bar was talking my ear off. Fantastic brew though. One of the best coffee beers I've had and that's saying something cuz I've had some of the best (WnB, FB MBCP and CCB Cubano Espresso to name a few).

Mystery Romp has a medium, quickly-dying, beige head, tiny ascending bubbles, a dark-brown, nearly black, appearance, and almost no lacing left behind. The aroma is of dark-roasted malt, char, black coffee, baker’s chocolate, and toast crust. Taste is of all that, with acidity and burnt bitterness closing out the sip. Mouthfeel is rather thin and oddly prickly. Mystery Romp finishes semi-dry.
