Mocha Machine is a well-engineered endeavor in massive aromatics and rich flavors. Brewed with an array British and German malts, this burly brew is infused with masterfully roasted coffee from Portola Coffee Lab in Costa Mesa, CA. It is then aged on cacao nibs from Equador, adding an awesomely deep dimension of fudge.

Draft at Long Beach brewpub. It is really fudgy and coffee-y and it’s a thick porter with good body. I like.

marcus (9231) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 10, 2016
On tap at California Craft Beer Summit. Pours dark brown with a thick oat-generated tan head and a strong coffee aroma. There is a medium-bodied chocolate and roasted malt flavor with a huge dose of delicious coffee that stays on the palate.

Huge chocolate coffe aroma in a jet black pour. Lovely balance between the two, and the base hops and malt, is nicely completed by the clean dry finish.

Sampled from a bottle while waiting in line at a release from notes. Pours dark brown in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, strong coffee, dark chocolate, some sweetness, fudge, some earthy bitterness, good beer.

On tap at the brewery. It pours a dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is toasted, chocolaty with striong coffee. Background sweetness. The flavor is coffee forward and silky on the palate with a nice chocolaty backbone and light roast in the finish. Pleasant sweetness throughout. Really enjoyable.
