Pint at Volo. Murky brown colour, upfront aroma of coffee and chocolate. Coffee flavour comes through from the first sip. Nice, lingering aftertaste like chocolate melting in your mouth. I just wish this had a bit more body to it.

Rich coffee aroma, dark chocolate, darkest brown, red at the edges. Good taste of roasted malt, fine coffee and dark chocolate. Medium bodied, well balanced, bitter and sour. Terrific! Keep up the fine work Perry!

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2007
Sample @ Cíest, where it was called "Downtown" Mocha Brown. Kinda funky -- a distinct scent of bodily fluid. Slightly sweet and mild, with great lingering roasted coffee notes. Zero head, but apparently that wasnít the brewerís fault. Give it another shot, Perry!

Gorbalev (2943) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2007
Cask (gravity dispensed) at Volo, had a pint with blankboy after Janís. Deep dark brown, no head. Nice malty brown ale aroma with espresso hints. Taste features mild chocolate, mocha, coffee Deep tasty stuff, but the lack of carbonation hurt it - it was tough to slug through a pint, it could have used some life I think. But hey, Perryís the man, serving us geeks with flavorful brews in a bland wasteland (but getting better in part thanks to him) - thanks Perry, this was flavorful and neat to try!

jercraigs (8006) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2007
Cask at CW. Very dark brown body, no head, almost black. Aroma is quite roasty, light underlying mocha (7+). Flavour is coffee dominant, roasty, with lingering mocha in the finish and aftertaste. Smooth medium palate is lacking in carbonation, and would likely take it up a notch with appropriate carbonation. Very nice. Well done!

blankboy (6226) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2007
Cask (gravity dispensed) at Volo. Pours dark brown, almost black, with no head at all. Aroma of caramel malt, mild mocha and a hint of coffee. Slightly watery flavour of light coffee, caramel malt and faint hops. Average bodied. I think this beer would be better served on draught, itís pretty lifeless this way, but as is itís still a well made beer and pleasant enough.

Sammy (8849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2007
Mocha brown colour, the aroma and the taste is one-dimensional coffee.A bit of mollassess and malt, but it could use lots more malt.and preferably other flavorings. Coffee taste is so-so, and I normally donít drink cold coffee even itís spiked. A little watery. Fresh cask at Volo Cafe.

Cask @ Cíest What?
Dark, woody brown with smallish ring on top.3-
Smooth clean, well roasted beans . Good, clean fresh coffee aroma. Good, not as dry as top mocha goes but itís up there. Neat brown malt base.
For true coffee lovers this is excellent choice. Brown malts go well with rich coffee character that grows well o your palate. Chocolate, cocoa noted as well. Very good mocha beer that I would like to see as regular beer from this brewery

Cask. Very dark brown body with no head. Vanilla aroma including coffee beans and mocha. Silky medium-body with lots of bitter coffee, dark chocolate, and green hops. Chocolate and roast bitterness dominates throughout.
Sampled at the C’est What Spring Festival Of Craft Brewers on May 25, 2007.
