Ballast Point Mocha Marlin is a Chocolate and Coffee Porter. This is a really good Porter with more chocolate flavor than coffee. The chocolate appears in the aroma of this beer and also up front as you drink it. I really didn't get much coffee flavor out of this like I do with the Victory At Sea Imperial Porter with Coffee and Vanilla. At the back end there is slight hop bitterness that nicely offsets the chocolate sweetness upfront.
Another enjoyable beer from Ballast Point Brewing Company. Cheers!
