650ml bottle from Binnys in Highland Park. Very dark brown pour with a brown head. Nose has big espresso, with caramel malts and light nut. Taste is of bakers chocolate, roast, chocolate liqueur, caramel and some molasses. A bit rough, but maybe just young. Medium to full bodied with some alcohol. Finishes well balanced between bitter and sweet. The best of the derivatives off the very good base? 15.5

Bottle courtesy of trade with reorulezzz8. Cheers! Pours a deep stout brown with a tan head. Nose is roast, chocolate, slight molasses, coffee, spice, and mild bitterness. Flavor is similar with roast, chocolate, coffee, spice, and coffee/hop bitterness. Medium in body and lingering bitterness into the finish.

Bottle. The pour is dark with little tan head. The aroma is mostly chocolate and deep malts. The taste is big and bold chocolate and coffee. I could drink this stuff like crazy, so good.

22 oz bomber. The pour is a light black with a film of lighter khaki colored head and no lace. The aroma is great. There is a solid mocha here. Good coffee and heavy chocolate. I love the volume of malts here. The alcohol is nowhere to be found, which I really like. The flavor is all chocolate. There is a light coffee that starts to come in about half way through and carries out through the end. The booze is again well hidden. The mouth feel is a bit light, but there is a nice carbonation to help it cling. The aftertaste fades pretty quick, but is a good blend of chocolate and coffee for the namesake mocha. This could be excellent, but it's not bad.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is mocha, roasted malt, but light. Appearance is black, beige head, poured light. Taste is roasted, tons of mocha, chocolate, vanilla, nice. Mouthfeel is decent, a touch light, oily, decent carbonation. Overall, it’s got a pretty good taste but it falls short of my anticipated rating.

Black pour with a thin espresso head. Aroma of chocolate. Full mouth. Alcohol is very forward in this with a rubbing alcohol flavor present. No vanilla or coffee. Chocolate is very forward, but that rubbing alcohol flavor is just all over the place. The vanilla and coffee start to creep in as it warms.
