Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2005
Bottle. Good initial aroma of light fruity chocolate and deeply roasted coffee. After a while the roasted components tend towards charred with a touch of smokiness. Smooth and sweet at the start with caramel and roast components. Body thins out as you drink. A beer of two halves - starts out well but ends not not so well

Nice and black with a khaki head. Malted and toasted. It’s got very good body and is creamy. Darn good porter.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is mostly roasted malt but just a touch of hops. Flavor is roasted malt and a touch of bitterness at the end. More coffee like. Less sweet than other porters that I’ve tasted. Not bad. I could drink this more. On the palate it is full bodied and creamy as a porter should be. Good stuff

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2005
Bottle from Sainsburys. Pours very dark with a fine tan head. The aroma is subdued with some roasted malt, hop and alcohol. The flavour, however, is not subdued and leaps out at you with a barrage of roasted malt, and a suprisingly aromatic, citric hop character and biting bitterness. Some sweetness and somewhat meaty with huge notes of coffee as well as fruit. Very refreshing and very good.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 16, 2005
Black, soft tan creamy head. The nose held notes of toast, caramel, dusty cocoa, and milk chocolate, with lesser tones of mild coffee and oatmeal. Chocolate cream, toast, and mocha- like flavors are up front with lots of citric hop bitterness showing up to maintain nice balance. Medium bodied, light carbonation, bittersweet finish. A very nice session porter...

ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2005
bottle...dark brown with a generous tan head. Malty aroma, some raw alcohol also. A hint of hop aroma too. Nicely balanced with hops to start, becoming sweeter in the middle, and finishing roasty and bitter. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Coffee and bittersweet chocolate flavors to finish. An enjoyable brew.

MayorQuimby (100) - Santa Barbara, California, USA - MAY 12, 2005
Bottle. Deep brown color, persistent tan head that left gorgeous lacing on my glass. Aroma is gentle, chocolate and caramel malts, a bit of the earthiness that is also present in the Shakespeare Stout. Flavor is rather bittersweet, a hint of smokiness to go with a good roasty flavor that lightens as it finishes. Medium bodied, lasting mouthfeel, light carbonation gives a pleasant feel in my mouth. Overall a great example of the style, another enjoyable Rogue beer.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours a dark, dark opaque brown with a creamy 1/4 inch tan head. Very lacy. Smells of roasted chocolate and coffee. Taste is smoky chocolate malt blended nicely with coffee flavors. Nice coffee bitterness. Very well balanced. Full bodied and bitter coffee aftertaste. Very drinkable. When you see the words "Mocha Porter", this beer delivers all the things you would want from a beer with that name.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2005 bottled, rich though a bit too thin to call it full bodied. jet black, caramel aroma, slightly bitter in taste.
