3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a very complex beer but still enjoyable. Black with biege head, nutty aroma. Nice full bodied palate with bittersweet and roasty chocolate taste. Very dry. Started tasting very skunky towards the end, so I docked it a couple points.

I love IPA’s, I love porters, I can’t figure this one out. Eyes closed I’m calling it an IPA everyday. I did not enjoy this brew.

Pours a black color with brown hues and a thin light brown head. Aroma of chocolate with roasted and biscuity malt. Flavor of chocolate with roasted malt, toasty too. The body is medium with a dry texture and moderate carbonation.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle, UK import, trade with maeib. ABV is 5.3%. Very dark opaque brown colour, nearly black. Pours with a large and thick tan head. Pleasant roasty aroma with strong coffee notes, also cigarbox, chocolate and leather. Flavour has strong coffee notes too, some tar and a slight smokiness. Roasty and hoppy bitterness in the long aftertaste. Maybe not the most complex beer in the world, but a very good one all the same!

Opaque with thin beige head, this is a nice roasty porter with understated coffee/chocolate, not too heavy but pleasantly full-bodied and satisfyingly dry

Black, opaque color, chocolate nose, bitter flavor.thick palate. I expected more of a chocolate/coffee punch from this. I like it though. I was in the mood for a good porter, and I got one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown/ruby color with a tan head that quickly dissappates. Aroma a burnt roasted choco- coffee smell, and something else that I cant quite place. Decently carbonated, moderately flavorful, can be sweet at times, others times complex, sometimes simple. kind of like a women. Decent brew from Rogue.
