starts chocolate-coffee thick, then kind of thins out at the end. has just about everything i look for in a porter, but somehow ends up average - nothing wrong with that.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown colour with a tan head. Mocha Porter has a nicely carbonated body that feels slightly thin and watery. Overall, the taste was somewhat dry and bursting at the seems with roasted coffee flavors. Above average bitterness for a porter and not quite as sweet as most. Good, but not quite what I was looking for.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2008 (5/10/08, 12oz bottle) Cola-black body topped by creamy medium head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, coffee, cream, some earthy, cola. Taste is medium sweet, coffee, some coffee bitterness, earthy, cream. Creamy medium body. (8/5/7/4/15)
(2/13/02) Very nice porter. Obvious coffee overtones, though the chocolate isnít far behind. very smooth. hops make their presence noted more in the aftertaste than anywhere else. (8/4/8/4/16)

One of my favorite porters, second only to Anchorís. Not as dark as some others, and a nice sweetness(but not too much). A great beer.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2005 I really like this beer. It has a rich deep flavor without an overpowering hoppiness on the palate. The aftertaste has a lingering flavor of dark cocoa.

Appearance: black, nice texture when pouring, reasonably strong head. Nose: definitely mocha, to the exclusion of other things -- but itís strong and delicious enough so who care. Tastes even better than it smells, chocolate-coffee and a wonderful mouthfeel for a beautifully balanced sweet-but-hoppy experience. A nice surprise; Iíve been disappointed by the brewer recently.
