Ballast Point Brewing (San Diego, California) recently announced that they are releasing Mocha Marlin Porter with Coffee and Chocolate as the brewery’s latest limited release offering.
Black Marlin, Ballast Point’s year-round Porter that has earned quite the favorable reputation in a town known for its obsession with IPAs, is finally getting in on the variant action that the brewery has been dabbling with lately. Mocha Marlin starts with a roasted, chocolaty malt base of an English Porter and then livens things up a bit with the additions of coffee and cocoa. This results in a 6.0% ABV Porter that is “full-bodied, but not too sweet.” The brewery suggests you enjoy this one for breakfast, dessert, or anywhere in-between.
Mocha Marlin Porter with Coffee and Chocolate was officially released last week in the brewery’s tasting rooms, and it will start rolling out to Ballast Point’s full distribution area soon. Look for this one on draft and in 22 0z. bottles at select beer establishments for a limited time. Prost!
