Bottle gift from Dom. Cheers buddy. He was, in my opinion, excessively positive about a lesson he saw of mine today. Still, hes the boss so knows better than me, it mustve been brilliant - though we all agreed it would have to be perhaps in a non-conformist way. Frothing mugs. Not much froth here, just a little fizz. Choffee. Is that a better word than Mocha? I remember not being able to decide if I wanted tea or coffee so instead producing 50/50 combined cups of tea and coffee in student days, and then not being able to decide whether it should be called coftea or teaffee. So we called it cofteateaffee. We were wild.

Batemans mocha encompasses some of my favourite aspects of beer; Dark stouts, potters and speciality beers. More importantly for this beer is the overall chocolate taste, its excellent, especially if served at the right temperature. I sometime find that some chocolate beers tend not to be that flavoursome but not this one. Batemans is one of my favourite breweries and I dont think Im bias in saying that theyve really outdone themselves on this one. The only downside I can think of is that if you dont like specialty, flavoured or dark beer then this is not for you. Otherwise its great.

MoritzF (9600) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2012
(bottle) Clear, dark amber colour with a short and tanned foamy head. Aroma of dark chocolate and coffee with hints of almonds/marzipan, accompanied by shades of nuts and subtle fruity notes. Mildly sweet-bitter flavour, surprisingly light bodied with a modest carbonation. Pronounced chocolate character with notes of coffee, backed by shy hints of cassis and hoppy spice; moderately sweet and mildly bitter finish, again quite slim with present notes of chocolate. Okay, just a bit disappointing. 14.XII.12

mike_77 (5942) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2012
Very dark brown with a red hue. Aroma and flavour are unsurprisingly chocolate, mocha, coffee. These are perhaps too dominant but its a great when drunk as a dessert beer.

Leighton (19833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle at home with Lyoli. Pours clear, red-brown with a fine, tan foam head. Aroma holds tons of fragrant chocolate, some dark malts. Medium sweet flavor, lots of chocolate bar, plenty of vanilla, some brown bread. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, more chocolate, mellow bitterness, mild filter coffee, some toasty bread. An alright beer. The character is dominated by a not altogether natural-tasting chocolate, but its decent stuff none the less.

Cuso (8165) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle from bierzwerg.de. Dark brown color with small off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, caramel. Taste, milk coffee, caramel, hints of coffee. Coffee bitterness in sweet finish.

pivnizub (10357) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle: Clear, deep ruby-amber coloured, small off-white foamy layer, distinctive - kind of artificial - traces of milk-chocolate or instant-cacao-powder in the sweet-caramelly nose; light to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, quite slim; bitter-chocolatey finish, some malty sweetness detectable, maybe traces of warming alcohol, too. Not really convincing

imdownthepub (13833) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from Sainsburys in Banbury. Very dark brown with off white head. There is a strong aroma of chocolate and coffee, good start, and in this case it does follow it through into the flavour. There is a slight wet cardboard note, the signature Batemans bottled beer character, but this is overcome with a silky, chocolate, malty flavour. Pretty reasonable.

laiti (8194) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2012
50 cl bottle as Mark & Spencer Lincolnshire Mocha Beer @ lusikka, BBE 09/2013
Aroma has cocoa, coffee, vanilla and lots of artifical and sweet essences. Flavour has lots of vanilla, some wet wood and coffee notes. Too harsh and watery, but not bad anyway. I really like the vanilla aromas in the aroma, but it just isnt enough.

lusikka (7757) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2012
500 ml bottle. Thanks a lot laiti!
Pours a black colour with a small head. Aroma of strong sweet tiramisu, chocolate and alcohol. Flavour is strong with tiramisu, sugar, alcohol, sweet caramel and grass. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a horribly sweet tiramisu finish with alcohol. Way too sweet and unbalanced.
