Wigle Whim Mocha Porter, 46%

Price: $34 Issue: Spring 2015 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

I reviewed a couple of these one-off Wigle Whims earlier. This one's quite roasty indeed, almost coffee-like, made with roasted barley and wheat, and caramel and chocolate malts. It smells of burnt grain with sweet toffee underneath. Lots of chocolate and cocoa struggle with ash and burnt grain, leading to a hot finish where they end up, finally, in agreement, a smoky mocha mouthful, espresso whiskey. Invigorating. Price is per 375 ml.
