I’ve had Sugar Creek Brewing Mocha Java Porter, 5.7% ABV and 16 IBU several times before. Sugar Creek uses locally sourced one-hundred-percent organic fair-trade coffee. Mocha Java Porter pours a nice black color with khaki beige two and a quarter head that slowly fades giving off sweet roasted coffee notes with a nice bit of a nutty mocha note. Taste on this Porter is sweet at first with a nice heaping coffee flavor that has a bit of nuttiness with a mocha chocolate bitterness on the back of the tongue that has a dark chocolate coffee finish with a lingering dark chocolate coffee aftertaste with a full mouthfeel. ￼￼Sugar Creek Brewing Mocha Java Porter is good and isn’t such a big beer that it isn’t drinkable this is for a Porter, and it gets an A+ here. Sugar Creek Brewing Mocha Java Porter is a beer that is worth trying this winter. Please enjoy responsibly m! Cheers!
This is not your typical Brown Ale, Burial Beer Co. Cocoa Bolo Coconut Brown Ale with Chocolate, 5.6% ABV from Asheville, North Carolina and purchased from Pop The Top, is a bigger Brown that is not at the same time. Cocoa Bolo which I don’t think is chocolate western neck attire, but it does, however, pour a black inky color with brown edges and a three-finger creamy beige head with a Mounds bar like aroma with nice toasted coconut and chocolate aromas with roasted malt notes. Yes Cocoa Bolo does taste like a Mounds bar and it doesn’t just smell like one, there is nice sweet chocolaty toasted coconut with nice roasted malts that all finish smooth and velvety with a nice faint toasted chocolate aftertaste with a tiny amount of the coconut all with a smooth medium mouthfeel. This is surprising, not heavy of a beer I mean it does have a lot going on in it but it is somewhat easy to drink for a brown all, but not the easiest. Burial Beer Co. Cocoa Bolo Coconut Brown Ale with Chocolate is an A, the chocolate and the coconut cohabitate well together for a fine sweet brown all that is worth checking out! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
