So far, I've enjoyed everything I've tasted from this brewery - the nameworthy Chocolate Stout, the super smooth and nutty Hazelnut Brown Nectar, and perhaps my favourite so far, the orange wine-tasting Combat Wombat. The verdict is the same here. The Mocha Porter's a good beer.

Had a similar dark beer a couple of weeks ago with chocolate and coffee notes all over, but this felt much more nuanced in hindsight. The Kasteel was full on with the chocolate, but the Mocha Porter let's it play second fiddle, allowing the chocolate to play a supporting role to the more "beer-y" malty hoppy elements. Same can be said of the coffee notes. They basically highlight all that bitter sweet toasty elements. Finishes fresh and creamy. Would definitely drink this again!

Quite a bit of carbonation. Smells meh. Coffee. Toasted. Chocolate? Very average porter.

Taste's like coffee that was left out and consumed cold, which I've done from time to time. Definitely a little mocha in there. Not bad, just not for me.

Mild porter with medium coffee taste. Performs as advertised. Nothing special but very drinkable.

Coffee smell, more of a burnt oats aftertaste, with a hint of coffee and chicory
