A brewer, a coffee roaster and a craft beer snob walk into a bar in Muskoka. The result: A rich winter beer full of coffee, chocolate and roasted barley. Perfect with a hearty meal on a cold winter night. Cheers!

2015 Batch is 6.5% abv

Old North Mocha Porter, poured like a true gentleman, quiet and reserved, subtle and refined. Lovely mouth feel with a very satisfying nose of coffee and chocolate. Ample carbonation and slight bite that made this beer a one of my favorites for this year. Sad that I will have to wait until next year to get my hands on some

Billed as Lake of the Bays Old North Mocha Porter but assuming its under this. Pours nice brown with a ruby tinge, somewhat light, creamy biege head. Coffee grinds, lots of roasted malts, bittersweet and some milk chocolate. Mild body and moderate carbonation, slightly sweet and builds to, in my opinion, too much sweetness with more vanilla and chocolate along with a very strong roasted malt. Does not live up to the initial promise.

Pours black with a thick mocha head. aroma is coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is actually not terribly coffee centric. Nice chocolate and roasted malts.

Clear dark brown pour with large fluffy light tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and very faint hint of coffee and chocolate. Taste is very muted roasted malts and cocoa, not much flavor. Nice carbonation and mouthfeel though.

Looks like a coke. With head. Very strong coffee scent. Dark chocolate and something sweet. Very smoky mouth. Smoked cheese, smoked chocolate cheese. Thick. Sweet. Rich. Heavy. Nice but very rich, a bit too much. Good but a bit unbalanced.

kevinsenn (1670) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2012
On tap at Imbibe. Slightly clear (light passes through it), with a big creamy head. Aroma of creamy coffee, with slight metallic hints. Taste is relatively smooth, roasty, with a clean watery finish. A distinct lack of chocolate taste, for something calling itself "mocha". Body is too thin.

VT (2233) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2012
Cask at Vankleek Hill’s/Beau’s Oktoberfest. Almost opaque, pitch black. Taste is chocolate, sweet cream and vanilla. Some black coffee bitterness in the finish. Light bodied. Somewhat heavily carbonated, for a cask conditioned porter...regardless, pretty decent.
