lokis333 (619) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JAN 1, 2018
Almost jet black colour with medium brown foam. Aromas sweet and silky of cocoa, chocolate with light toffee and malt notes. Palate, medium/light body with fairly thin texture leaving cocoa finish. Taste, bittersweet of cocoa and chocolate, maybe with a hint of some liquor. Overall, okay not too exciting, nice chocolaty but fairly plain and boring :(

Ritzn (1984) - GERMANY - DEC 23, 2017
Bottle says 5.3 abv. Black with medium brown head. Aroma is slight fish, smoke, deep dark chocolate, a hint of baked banana, a hint of bourbon, mocha, roast and vanilla. Also some dark honey and some pine cone, earth. Taste is sweet malt juice with medium viscosity. Medium roasty bitterness, at first a bit of a roasty sting, later a creamy and sweet finish. Medium body. Would prefer more intesnity. Low carbonation. Complex aroma but overall a bit thin. Might look out for the "double" version.

vinivini (3147) - Gomel, BELARUS - NOV 18, 2017
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?

Bush_Docta (432) - - 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.

3.9
artyom (1229) - 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.

3.2
Fisler (785) - 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.

Bill Becker (2007) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 18, 2017
From Dec 2006 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!
