COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Railway City Brewing Company has combined forces with Londonís Fire Roasted Coffee Company to develop our newest seasonal beer, ďMocha PorterĒ. First conceived at the recent London Food & Wine Show, our friends at the London Fire Roasted Coffee Company joined us to brew our latest recipe featuring some of their freshly roasted coffee. Fire Roasted Coffee is recognized as one of Canadaís finest Specialty Coffee Roasters. The coffee beans that were roasted and brewed in the Mocha Porter are Fair Trade Certified Coffee, something Fire Roasted strongly believe and support.

Growler from the brewery. Pours pitch black with a great big frothy cappucino coloured head. Aroma and taste are massively roasted malt and coffee. I think they hit the nail on the head here.

Growler from the brewery, Pours a clear dark brown ale with ruby highlights into the tulip, Massive coffee colored cap last well and laces. Aroma has some roast and coffee notes no hint of hops, and some funky green beer odors. Mouth feel and body are thinner than one expects in this style (perhaps some flaked barley would bulk up the body) . Flavor is rather two dimensional with coffee, roast malt and some subtle sweetness dominating. Fast finish is bitter from coffee but tagging along are some green beer tastes. This has good potential as a coffee porter but it is unfinished....the funky green beer tastes indicate not enough conditioning time.

Looks fantastic, deep color and solid dark tan cap. Aromas sweet, mild. Taste is pretty decent at first, roast and cocoa, but a kind of odd flavor element emerges, plastic or something? I thin a work in process that will come together soon. Body is decent but a touch light. RE RATE >>>

[2806-20100313] Nitro tap. Mocha chocolate aroma has mild nut roast notes. Hazy, dark dark brown body with a medium-lasting creamy light brown head. Bitter coffee cocoa flavour with a long butter coffee aftertaste. Full body. Interesting.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2010
2010-03-13. Black body with a nice creamy tan head. 4+ Sweetish mocha coffee aroma with a harsh alcohol undercurrent, notes of rubbing alcohol at first. Flavour is similar, bitter coffee, harsh alcohol undertones, nail polish, rubbing alcohol. Bizarre. Mabel didnít get the same roughness I did, but the first impressions didnít make me want to explore deeper. Average plus bodied palate. Did not care for. On Nitro tap at Cíest What, Toronto

Sammy (8397) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2010
Lennyís growler, and now I too become a reviewer of the beer. Promising start, with black body and white head (and later white lace. Its downhill from there, with really odd smells, not the glass but it is bleach and soap. Same in second cup. Very dry, thin. Chocolate most of all.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2010
Growler and bottle samples. Most recent at Brennanís Beer Bistro in London Ontario- Dark coffee pour, has a frothy and long lived mocha froth, which provides good lace. Simple nose has mild roast, black coffee, some vanilla, dark malts, subtle hops. Tastes of freshly ground black coffee, quite bitter, some vanilla, roasted malts. This is very coffee forward, and really seems like a coffee centered beer, unlike others that pretend. Roasty, bitter, lengthy black coffee finish. A bit thin on the finish, seems thinner than the Pullman Porter, but the world isnít perfect.Well made.
