MOCHA PORTER

This is beauty in glass. A lasting creamy head, foamy patterned lacing that clings all the way down. And the roasted malt aroma is totally intoxicating. The first taste made me all smiles. You’re hit with those malts, followed by a bittersweet chocolate, but what’s really unexpected, is as the coffee and chocolate flavors fall away, you’re left with this earthy hoppiness that really makes you pause and consider the beer.

A smooth finish, with bitter piney end notes; this beer brings me back to Amherst. It’s something you would sip in the Pioneer valley, coffeeshop vibe meets a backpack trip through the woods.
