Emeister84 (2380) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Aromas of dark milk chocolate, some cherry, subtle booze, subtle wood spice. Almost black in appearance with dark bronze highlights, and a mostly lasting dark tan head. Some malt sweetness, chocolatey, somewhat fruity. Full bodied, very smooth, dangerously drinkable.

Countbeer (6470) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Black beer (with a ruby tint come through). Medium sized beige light brown head. Aroma has loads of chocolate, mocha and cacoa. Cant really detect something else... Maybe just tints of malts and herbs... Flavour Flavours of bitters, dried leaves, toast, malt toast, some chocolate, mocha, light choco spice, some light wood, chalk and herbal choc... Low carbo, creamy close to silky mouthfeel, more than just medium bodied and a creamy bitter light dry texture. Nice stuff though the body might have been a bit bolder. Nevertheless, tasty!

This is an oak aged beer, but no bourbon involved. SUPER cholatey, right away, and non-stop from start to finish. Like Rogue Choc Stout with its intense bitter chocoaltey goodness, but on steroids. In small samples, this is pure bliss, though maybe juuuust a touch overkill on the bittersweet assualt if, say, drinking a pint or a bottle. And a bit on the expensive side, but hey, it was delicious."

Caldera Mogli is a beer that should be a masterpiece, at least for me. Its an imperial chocolate porter aged on bourbon-soaked oak spirals thats an impressive brew from the description alone. And while its a plenty tasty and enjoyable beer, its also a bit of a challenging beer because its so intense in pretty much every aspect.

I poured a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass. There was no freshness date, but there was white wax on the cap. I received this bottle from a friend as a gift (thanks, Ben!).

Appearance: Deep dark brown/black color, no visible carbonation. Pours to a three-finger, tan, foamy head which retains but does not lace very well.

Smell: Cocoa nibs and roasted malt with distinct bourbon character.

Taste: Theres a lot going on with this palette: dark chocolate, vanilla, bourbon and woody/earthy characters are all quite prominent. The chocolate is present right away, tasting akin to cocoa nibs more on the bittersweet side than anything rich and silk like milk chocolate. Plenty of bitterness from the get-go as well. Deeply roasted malt creates for dryness towards the beginning, though its quickly obscured by the intense bourbon flavor that appears at the apex of the swig and sticks around long after the swallow is complete. Theres a slight tanginess or astringency on the backend, though this might be the actual alcohol as there is a rum-like character here as well. More bitterness on the finish with an aftertaste of burnt malt and dark chocolate. Delectable and enjoyable, but mostly its just interesting. This beer probably didnt need the oak-aging as it distracts from the base brew, but its still fun to drink anyway.

Drinkability: Though obviously not the biggest beer in the world at only 8.5% ABV, Caldera Mogli certainly drinks something youd call ginormous. This is a robust, full-bodied beer with a strong presence in the mouth. Its comfortable, and smooth going down, though the alcohol does impart minor warmth. A great dessert beer, especially when shared with friends rather than Bogarted.

JDBaker11058 (2071) - Maryland, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Appearance: dark brown pour, caramel colored edges, short and creamy light tan head quickly fading, reinvigorated with the occasional swirl. Aroma: big nose of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, bourbon and/or rum. Taste: very sweet, with dark and milk chocolate, a hint of espresso, crme anglaise, sticky toffee pudding, and a boozy undertone. Finish: lingering chocolate sweetness grows stronger, as does a faint woody note to compliment the bourbon; palate was lighter than expected. Notes: A little more sweet and a little less roasty than I prefer in the style, and the palate could have used a tad more heft. That said, this was quite excellent.

Beachmaster (509) - Oklahoma, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bomber into a pint glass. Pours a very dark brown, almost black. Medium tan head which quickly fades, leaving fair lacing. Nose is chocolate and dark malt. Taste follows the nose, with an unexpected sweetness. Tast is rich, complex, and matures as the beer warms. Mouth feel is creamy, but the finish is short, and leaves you wanting more. Delicious.

Carbonation was a bit off. This is still a great porter. Would recommend to anyone.

Bottle shared by the other Jason. Pours a dark brown with beige colored head. Aroma of oak and chocolate. Taste of chocolate and coffee with some oak.

swanmann (751) - Nompton, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Chocolate brown with a few, quickly disappearing tan bubbles. It smells like milk chocolate and bourbon. Its deliciously sweet and roasty with just a hint of alcohol warmth. Its on the lighter side of full mouthfeel. Finishes bittersweet. What a delicious brown brew! A sweet tribute.
