dark to medium dark brown pour with a very lively and thick beige head and good lacing. Strong nose of malt and chocolate but not as chocolately as I expected. Rich flavor of chocolate, toffey, rasted malt and just a touch of bitterness in the aftertaste. A sweet porter but not overly so. Only drawback for me was that the chocolate and coffee flavors seemed a little "forced". Overall, a really nice porter that was definately worth the wait.

Odeed (1796) - Bakersfield, California, USA - DEC 12, 2004
i have not seen this brew in ages so it was nice to come up on it in a "winter pack" from cost plus.this porter dumped into my pint glass with a body that appeared black,but was more on the amber side when held up to light.it also foamed up a good looking creamy root beer style head that stuck round after the pour for some time.i got some mocha,malts,and a bit of metal in the smell.the first sip gave off some bitter hops,malts,and then came the mocha that actually stuck around for quite some time after.this is a very nice,full bodied porter.

Very dark opaque brown. Sweet chocolatey and caramel aroma with no hops. Elegant balance of chocolate and coffee sweet flavour with hops bitterness. Full bodied with a smooth finish.

Pours very dark brown, almost black. Nice malty chocolate nose. Nice smooth dark chocolate taste with a touch of coffee and malt. Light roasted hops finish. Very nice.

hayden1215 (321) - Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Black in color with a nice sized frothy brown head. Aroma is malty with roasted/burnt chocolate, faint chocolate. Flavor is moderately bitter with chocolate and a slight yeastiness. Finish is smooth and moderately bitter.

piscator34 (2086) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 6, 2004
Very dark brown in colour with an off white head. Slightly vinous aroma, along with roasted grains and bakers chocolate. The Rogue "house style" is very apparent in the flavor: signature yeast and munich malty. There’s some of the mocha chocolate thing going on in the flavor, but not as much as you’d expect from something named "mocha porter". Quite hoppy as well. A nice brew.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 2, 2004
I also didn’t have a pleasant experience with this brew. Very little aroma to speak of , thick texture, light chocolate mocha taste you really had to search for it. Roasted malt aftertaste gets a little fuller as it warms, but still flacid for a porter. Pass

ambroze (22) - Old Hickory, Tennessee, USA - NOV 30, 2004
To me not a very good beer at all. I’m very suprised at the great rating that this beer is getting. One of the worst beers I’ve tried ever.

meathookjones (245) - Sterling, Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2004
This pours a dark brown color with a reddish hue when held up to the light. A good-sized brown head formed and faded away slowly leaving a lacing around the glass. The aroma is thick with roasted coffee coming to the front and chocolate. The hops make themselves known as well but to a lesser degree. Tastes of smoky roasted malts with a heavier chocolate flavor as opposed to mocha or coffee. It has a pleasantly bitter aftertaste to balance out any sweetness. This is a very smooth and drinkable brew. Mouthfeel is good and with some of the other qualities it could be confused with a stout. This is pretty much another good beer from rogue.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2004
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.
