    The regular mocha porter is not very good IMO.

    Also is available in a cask, but it's not as good.

    Southern Tier makes a better mocha imho.

    I don't know what those fancy numbers mean, but I'd try it for sure.

    Plato is the gravity of the beer (higher the number the higher the significant gravity of the wort, ergo more fermentables), lovibond is the color (higher the number the darker the beer), IBUs are the measurement for the bitterness obtained from the hops (higher is more bitter).

    Sounds good. I am trying to like Porters, but have only found one so far that I really like (Firestone Walker's Reserve). Need to try more though. Might pick this up this weekend...

    Fun - is there a scale, or do they just keep going up?

    Basically, you can't detect anything below about 8 IBU, and it's pretty hard to get a beer beyond the 120 - 130 IBU range. Anything above 80 or 90 is a heavily hopped beer.

    True story. And for some Pale Ales without a heavy malt bill to balance it out, even 50 IBUs can taste pretty hoppy. For the bigger IPAs and IIPAs, and even Imperial Stouts, 80-90 IBUs is extremely common, if not mild in some cases.

    Here's a good chart about IBUs and style to give you an idea...

    http://s3.amazonaws.com/com.brewersf.../chart_ibu.gif

    And one as IBUs compare with ABV... The higher the ABV, the more malts are used, so the higher the specific gravity as well. Hops are used to balance the sweetness and maltyness in the "bigger" beers.

    And here is a good one about the color range...

    Hope this helps...
