3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster from bottle, last few notes from DLD 2011. Brown color, a little bit cloudy. No coffee or chocolate in the taste, just more of a straight, strong porter. Still very tasty. Just settles with the porter smell. That’s all the notes I dictated, clearly I am near the end of a long day of sampling.

"didn’t know what to expect here. the Mocha Porter is tasty, but the more expensive Imperial Porter is way overpriced and a touch boring, so... had on tap in a 16 oz plastic cup. another good brown head. aroma was rich rich rich. coffee and hops, both bitter and choclatey. some oak in the flavor too. the body was way better than the regular IP. huge coffee flavors as well, while not drowning out the beer and hoppiness."

I rate beers I think significantly better than average, simple as that. I am not into showing off through bloviating. :)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 10-29-2011 (Bottle) This beer has a medium frothy tan head with a long retention, opaque dark brown body, very little carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt, chocolate, coffee, and pine hops. The flavor is moderately bitter, citrus, pine hops, roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. The mouthfeel is smooth and this is a light-medium bodied beer. This beer is very quaffable with a very good flavor. It is worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

Bottle at market in panama. Dark brown black pour. Off white head. Choclate aroma. Malty cocoa taste. Bitter for a porter. Not bad

Decent smell. A little too bitter for me for a mocha porter. Starts full but thins quickly.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My 850th rating! Bomber from Sonoma Cellars. Pours an opaque black with a chocolate milk head leaving streaks of lace. Aroma has cocoa and molasses and roasted malts. Taste is of bakers chocolate, coffee and some caramel and some licorice. Roasty and sweetly smooth. Medium to full bodied. Finishes bitter and sweet in a nice blend. Faint alcohol presence. Solid and tasty.

Poured from a 750ml bottle. The aroma is roasted malts, milk chocolate, soft bready malts. The flavor is sweetened coffee, a mocha(makes sense), vanilla, a lingering bitterness. Creamy mouth feel that lingers. A rich chocolaty beer. Very nice.

A: A bitter semisweet chocolate. Maybe a little bit of sweet lactose note?
A: Looks fine. Head dissipates quickly. Dark brown.
T: ok on the taste. Coffee and chocolate is weak on palate. Bitterness is dull and off. Not bad not great.
P: Dull sort of boring. Nothing special.
Overall this beer is alright.. There are slight hints of chocolate and coffee but really it is more of a bitter mess. It’s ok....
