COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Black Marlin Porter is the perfect beer for a mocha mashup. The addition of coffee and cocoa plays perfectly of the roasty, chocolaty flavors of this English porter, while a hint of vanilla smooths it all out. Its full-bodied, but not too sweet; try it for breakfast...or dessert.

This beer smells AMAZING and tastes like if you dropped a shot of espresso into a nice chocolate porter. Though in the past I have been quick to deem similar beers "garbage water", this one lacks the icky smokiness that you might expect, and instead is very smooth and silky. Definitely like a dessert. Great for watching the second half of Robocop with your amazing and wonderful boyfriend after going into the office on a Sunday to do data analysis with an undergrad.

Bomber. Pours a deep black with a cola head. Aromas of coffee and a little chocolate. Flavor is pretty heavy with coffee, but its a little too thin of a porter to balance it out in my mind. Its very good, though.

22 oz. bottle. Pour was black, lasting tan head. Aroma was cocoa, dark chocolate, coffee. Taste was bittersweet, chocolate bars, roasted coffee. Like drinking a chocolate candy bar.

Thin deep brown pour with foamy tan head. Big chocolate aroma wafts from the glass. Very sweet and lots of milk chocolate, coffee, roasted grain. Really nice.

Bottle. Pours clear chestnut, medium beige creamy head, dissipates slowly, good lacing. Aroma is pretty strong roasted coffee, mocha indeed. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, heavy mocha flavors, nice coffee, not stale or anything like that. Lightish body and a bit of a watery texture detract from an otherwise pleasant beer.

Pours damn near black, thin beige head, slippery lace. Aroma of caramel, earth, tobacco, traces of mint. Medium bodied with some cocoa that breaks through nicely....Earthy root, wood, molasses, mint again. Good beer.

Bomber. A little vanilla aroma, roast. Jet black color with thick tan head and nice lacing. I think the coffee makes it a little harsh bitterness? Aftertaste is too bitter. Med bodied with a somewhat lively carbonation. Overall, I think the coffee aftertaste detracts a little bit.

On draught down the block at Marias. Dark chocolatey brown pour, medium off-white head. Nose is all kinds of cocoa and coffee. Mouth too. Medium bittersweet. Very tasty.

650ml bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with red hue and a large, frothy, long lasting, tan head that leaves curtains of lace. Bittersweet aroma of espresso, dark chocolate, roasted malt and a hint of vanilla. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate and vanilla with a dry, bitter coffee finish. Full body with a thick, creamy, smooth texture and soft carbonation. Excellent. This beer was delicious. I enjoyed it immensely.

Dark, nearly opaque, brown with a foamy light tan head. Big aromas of coffee, crme d cacao, roasted malt and a hint of sulfur which subsides and some caramel and more chocolate come out. Sweet start that leads to flavors of caramel and milk chocolate. I am somehow transported to my younger days and am thinking about Milk Duds, Black Cows and Marathon Bars. While not dessert like, it does have some candy characteristics. Soft palate.
