This evenings beer is Northern Monk’s Festive Star Xmas Mocha Porter. I’ve mentioned before that I really like Porters, so for this one to be different to the average Porter is quite nice. I’m still sort of blocked up with a cold but the smell is kind of coffee but not really. Its hard to describe. The taste certainly has a chocolate to it. I’m guessing this is where more of the mocha comes in. I’m not a coffee person in the slightest so I can’t tell if these are delicate coffee flavours or something completely different. But I do know I like it. This review probably hasn’t been helped by spending most of the afternoon in Brewdog Soho trying lots of their different beers.
