Excellent. Poured a very dark brown with a thin, yet creamy head that lasted a good while. The aroma was absolutely rich, presenting fruity, sweet, malty, aromas with notes of wine and coffee. The flavor didn't disappoint. Complex, but focused around the sweet and malty tastes of chocolate and roasted coffee. Mouthfeel was sublime: thick, heavy, and creamy. Truly fantastic! Rogue rocks.

Very dark with a dark head to match. Smooth mouthfeel full of flavor. It all comes together very nicely.

Like a Chocolate Stout light. Very wonderful especially on tap. I can't wait for the Beer revolution Rogue is pushing comes to fruition. Nothing but good words for this beer.

hershiser2 (1228) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Paid $1.39 for a 12-oz single. ($3.69 for a 650ml) BLACK with a very small, but creamy looking head. Rich chocolate in the nose. VERY bitter coffee going in. Smooth once inside, and finishes bitter once again. This is nice, but a tad too bitter for my taste. I'd have this again, but as a single, just like this time. More than one at a time would be too much.

Nose seems rather typical of a porter, I don't detect anything mocha-like. Thick head, dissipates slowly. Good flavour, but again, where's the "mocha" part? Proper palate. Overall, good, but why is it called a "mocha porter" instead of "porter"?

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2004
12 oz. It pours as a typical porter. I didn't notice much in the aroma area, only a slight hint of coffee. The flavor had hints of dark roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and a somewhat bread-like charteristic. There was a little bitterness and it finished both bitter and malty.

I'm not a big fan of porters but if you are this would be a good beer for you. Nice strong coffee flavor and a dark apperance. Left a little bit to strong of an aftertaste. Overall it was a good beer

Frank (2930) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2004
Dark brown with a thin tan head. Mostly coffee in the aroma. Slightly watery on the palate. Mildly citric with a hint of chocolate. Not bad.

TheRimmer (483) - Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2004
Hoppy nose that gives way to a little malt and some coffee. I dig the taste with the coffee and a milkyness that mixes together. however the hops are a bit overpowerring and kind of saturate any other malt sweetness.

Black with nice tan head. Roast malt aroma. Roast malt flavors as well with some coffee flavors. A tad thin.
