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.

Mystery Romp is a recipe that was a 5 yr evolution. Not that she was ever not a good beer. But, like any fancy lady she just always needed a little more. This porter has a gorgeous color at all stages. When brewed the swirl of earthy brown color dancing within the foam is picture worthy. When properly poured this beer vibrantly bubbles and sings. And as planned in the glass she is dark and mysterious. The smell of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate make her irresistible. This porter is Wanda’s baby. Being a coffee and chocolate addict she probably went a little mad and over the top with this one. Surprisingly people besides her liked it, which makes us smile.

Pours a nearly black with a quickly dissipating espresso head. Caramel coffee and cream nose. Lacking in body. Taste approximates the nose, but the bitterness of coffee gets expressed.

Bottle as an extra, thanks! Pours opaque black with a medium brown creamy head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is solid roasty, coffee, chocolate, a bit of ashtray. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, somewhat acidic and odd, seems like coffee has gone stale here. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel.

If this had the mouthfeel it would be awesome. Still good but very quick head. Nice coffee chocolate flavor. Sweet kinda thin on the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours very dark brown/black with a dark khaki head. Aroma is heavy dark chocolate, hot coacoa, roasted malt. Flavor is lighter than aroma but follows suit. Medium-light body. Creamy texture. Very good, solid porter, chocolatey delight.

On tap at the Avenue Pub. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is very straightforward. I get some huge coffee notes and nothing else, but that is not a bad thing. The flavor is also very coffee forward with the addition of some cream and a hint of chocolate thrown in. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice beer.

This porter is unlike anything I have had. It doesn’t taste typical like regular or imperial porters/stouts, but that’s what I like about it. It has a very strong coffee taste with a lot of hints of chocolate. When I find this beer at a bar I always get it.

Draft at the source, courtesy of staff and volunteers, thank you gentlemen! Deep maroon brown color, thick beige head, solid lacing. Aroma of burnt espresso, fine Sambucca, rich unsweetened cocoa. Taste is burnt toast, licorice, raisins, dates, burnt coffee. Delicious.
