Deep, dark brown body with a nice tan head. Aroma of chocolate infused coffee with some notes of the citrus hops. Medium bodied, smooth and creamy. The flavor was roasted malts, coffee/chocolate, with a blend of bitterness and sweetness and is passed over the tongue. Good stuff.

Impressive aroma but the taste failed to deliver. Aroma was heavy on coffee with underlayer of chocolate and a hint of vanilla. A little heavy on the hops, could’ve been better balanced. Bitterness was heavier than I expected but not overbearing.

SilkTork (5358) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2004 June, 2003: Bottle. Aggressively bitter. Does have a little of the wine quality that porters should have, but comes over more as a dry stout. A little more depth and complexity than the other Rogue’s I’ve tried, but on the whole quite crude. [3.0]
Dec, 2004: Part of the <a href=Beer-Ratings.asp?BeerID=55&FanOfID=4383>St Stew Off. BBE Jan 04. Abv 5.3% Staleness really showing with cardboard aromas. Bitterness slightly muted, but still present. Dry, roasty, some sweet creamy notes, coffee and chocolate. Much heavier than the Guinness, but a good match up for the Titanic and the F.E.S. Pulls way above it’s weight, and does come over as just a bit too thick and heavy as though the brewers have put just a bit too much into this. Sometimes less is more. [2.8]

Sweet, perfumey, chocolate, mocha nose. Opaque brown-black with thin, dense, tan head. Roasty, bitter coffee-grounds flavour with very little chocolate to be found. Lightly vinous and some mild fruitiness. Medium body. Strong, lasting, chalky bitterness. Bottle sampled with CapFlu and Lubiere. Thanks, beerhugger. Yay, leftovers!

Lubiere (10734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2004
Dark brown porter with a sweet coffee vanilla aroma. Sweet chocolate with hoppy bitterness, light to medium in body, with some metallic notes . Thnaks to BeerHugger, via Capflu.

CapFlu (4713) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2004
(20oz bottle) Pours a creamy beige head and an opaque body. The nose is filled with coffee and vanilla. Strong coffee also shows in the flavour then dwindles into a sharp bitter finish, Very nice. Many thanks to BeerHugger for the opportunity to try this...

This is probably the best porter I’ve had. Looks nice, very dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma and taste are very similar. Dry, roasty, with coffee and bittersweet chocolate.
