River Horse Mocha Lisa Porter

Despite River Horse being 5 minutes from my house, I usually only get there once a month at best. I picked this up at Cranbury Buy Rite after missing the brewery release.

ABV: 9%

Style: American Porter

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “You don’t have to be in a dead end job to feel like you aren’t going anywhere. That’s the way we felt before River Horse. We were finance geeks living in a world without soul. Grinding it out everyday for a fee, wearing suits and kissing butt. Then this brewery chose us…she forced us to ask ourselves, ‘Is this desk job really how I pictured my life?’ We answered that question by taking over River Horse in 2007 and have not looked back. We may not end up as the greatest success story on earth, but at least we had the balls to try. Sometimes, for better or worse, your dreams get the best of you. Just remember, it’s a big world out there and cubicles don’t have doors, so you can walk out anytime. Come see us when you can. We are located in Ewing, NJ. Thanks for supporting the cause. Hope you enjoy the beer…”

Random: River Horse is now hosting goat yoga events. I was away for the last one but definitely want to go to the next one.

This beer poured with a three finger, light brown head that was thick. It took awhile to go away and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a dark brown color with no visible carbonation. The nose was filled with dark, roasted malts and melted milk chocolate. The taste was like an adult version of chocolate milk. I picked up the same roasted malts and then cocoa powder and milk chocolate. The alcohol in this was invisible. It had a thick body with generous carbonation. The finish was moderate in lengthy with chocolate. I liked this beer a lot. River Horse has been stepping up their game and it shows. This is worth a try.
