sour chocolatey nose with dark cherries. Medium body tons of mocha in the mouth and aptly named. Big mocha finish.

bottle. Poured deep brown with a red hue, thin beige head. Medium roasted aroma. Medium-full body with an oily mouthfeel, finishes with a medium dryness. Roasted malt base, flavours of coffee, cocoa, and a sour cherry note.

Pours midnight black with a two finger cap into my lake of bays glass on a Saturday afternoon after getting the Christmas tree into the house. Think this just may be the best brew in their line up. A tasty low-fi blend of subtle cocoa & coffee. Nothing bold or mind blowing. Just a decent porter. Cheers.

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.

maley1 (1074) - Calgary, CANADA - NOV 24, 2012
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.

gilvanblight (821) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2012
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.
