4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
jet black hue with a decent creamy light brown head. Chocolate coffee and toasted malt nose. Pleasant chocolatey taste with coffee and roasted malt. A nice lighter alternative to stout.
Bottled. Deep brown to black. Opaque. Well-lacing head of beige. Aroma: coffee & roasted malts / barley. Restrained fruit esters. Light to medium body. Rather dry taste. Roast, coffee. Some hops. Good. Let someone guess: porter or stout? coil (150) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2017
330ml bottle from The Grumpy Goat, Reading. Black colour with light tan head. Big dark roasted malts, espresso, coffee beans, light mocha - more espresso than mocha, light dark chocolate. Bush_Docta (407) - - OCT 30, 2017
Dark brown with a thick, dense head and impressive lacing. The aroma is chocolate, cocoa, cappuccino and caramel. The taste is mainly chocolate and coffee, some roasted malts. Very tasty, nicely balanced between sweetness and roastiness. Medium to full body, very smooth, long coffee aftertaste. Very good. artyom (1171) - Osijek, CROATIA - OCT 30, 2017
0.355l bottle. Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, some chocolate and pronounced coffee character. Taste is roasty, and it is dominated by coffee. Overall it's nice and interesting porter. Fisler (689) - Bamberg, GERMANY - OCT 29, 2017
In der Nase leicht Kaffeeschokolade, im Trunk eher Schokolade als Kaffee, mittig süß, leicht wässrig, gut trinkbar, dürfte aber deutlich intensiver in Richtung Kaffee gehen, wenn es denn schon ein Mocha Porter ist.

Poured from 12oz bottle a very dark brown with a large head of foam that subsides after a w2hile leaving a nice solid layerwith lacing.
The smell is a nice mix of sweet caramel malt and coffee.
The taste is strong on the caramel, chocolate and coffee and they all hit you right up front. Tasty. The finish ends on the hoppy side with a nice bit of bitterness that yearns for another sip. Very smooth and it's a very good drinker. Yum.
Bottom line: A very tasty interpretation of an American Porter that has no apparent negative aspects. I recommend it.
Thanks to Wasatch for this sample! Holmen2 (4031) - NORWAY - OCT 2, 2017
Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 02.10.17. Almost ebony. Pale brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, tobacco and dark chocolate. Similar taste. Lingering aftertaste, with medium pine bitterness. tandembrauer (1616) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2017
Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours black with little beige head. Aroma of dark bread, roasted and fruity notes. Tastes sweet with roasted bitterness. Medium bodied, slightly bitter finish. balloonbuffoon (597) - - SEP 25, 2017
12floz bottle, no date, $2.25 as a single, pint glass. It has been about a decade since I last tried this beer, and it is much as I remembered it to be. Dark brown with a light layer of head. Brown sugar and licorice aromas noted. Robust is what this porter has going on, roasted bitterness of burnt caramelized toast and dark coffee grounds. This taste lasts a while afterwards, even though it is somewhat watery. I think I can pass on this for another decade. higgsbison (264) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2017
Smooth and creamy. Definite mocha notes. Well balanced but did not seem to be very complex for a Porter. It was much better warm, I did not care for it cold. A good beer, And I enjoyed it once it warmed up but there are much better porters out there
