COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Thansk, flopfacefred. The beer pours nice and black with a medium-sized, heavy beige head. Looks to have some heft to it. A bit of lacing. The aroma is big on coffee and chocolate. Nice roasty, fruity coffee flavors. Rich caramel malt underneath. Lots of fudgy chocolate with a creamy sweetness to it. The taste displays much of the same. Big mocha mix of creamy chocolatey sweetness and coffee. The coffee seems a touch acidic and maybe kinda strong in the taste. It crowds out the chocolate in the finish somewhat. Still, itís a solid enough mix and works together pretty well. More of a dark chocolate flavor to the taste, though that might just be the coffee bitterness. A touch of booze but itís nice and doesnít hurt the beer. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. If anything, it could be a bit weightier, though I think thatís more a function of the abv. It drink plenty big for 9.2% abv. Another excellent beer from Beachwood.

Sampled at GABF. In the tasting glass very black. Tan head of foam. Nose of roasted malts with chocolate and coffee. Full bodied. Flavor is again roasted malts and lots and lots of coffee. Finishes with coffee. Did I remember to mention coffee. Actually very good.

650ml bottle enjoyed @ home, thanks to Danny Aoun. Pours deep dark brown - almost black with a beige head. Aroma is lots of medium roasted coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and a hint of alcohol. Flavour is medium bitter and light sweet. Medium bodied, a bit oily texture, average carbonation. Finish is long, cold brewed coffee with a hint of chocolate and nice bitter balance.
