bottle. Poured to a small brown head and dark brown color. Slightly bitter smell and taste with malts present in the nose and taste as well. Heavy bodied sweet smoky malt aftertaste. A solid beer but i perfere others made by the Rogue company over this one.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2005 Bottle. Clove, raisin malt aroma. Dark brown almost black color - little head. Strong flowery hops flavor up front - chocolate malt flavor - kind of goes all over the place - sweet, sour, tart, bitter.

Looks like a glass of Coke. Nice head with brown coloring. Chocolaty aroma, very fizzy looking. Huge mocha taste, very pleasant after taste. Great beer.

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.

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 (2152) - 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.

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
