This is probably the best porter I’ve had. Looks nice, very dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma and taste are very similar. Dry, roasty, with coffee and bittersweet chocolate.

Bottle. Black ruby tinged body, with a smallish tan head. Dry roastiness and coffee in the aroma, would probably be improved in a larger glass. Coffee like roastiness up front leaves a slightly astringent bitterness lingering over subtle chocolate in the finish. Nice smooth palate. Enjoyable but uninspiring.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2006 12.0z bottle. pours dark, can not see thru it. Brown head, and sweet fruity chocolate aroma. Has a warming mouth feel, starts like a dark chocolate, bitter sweet and finishes sweet. I also detect a faint cherry taste Maybe? Excellent.

12oz bottle: Pours black with brown head. Aroma is a sweet chocolate cherry, tastes like a RICH coffee with a thick palate. Not a bad porter.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - NOV 11, 2004
poured a dark brown/black color which seemed to trap light. Nice thick tan head which reduced to a skin on top of the beer. Srtong choclate and cofee notes in the aroma. flavor was initally bitter and rich in coffee nots finish was mildly sweet.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - NOV 8, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2005 Nice warm black pour. Moderate amount of carmel brown head. Burned carmel and chicory aroma. Pleasantly mouthfilling with a somewhat astringent finish. Dark roast grain tastes up front, followed by a strange progression of tastes, very like dissolving a bit of dark Valrhona chocolate on your tongue. Very bitter, but then slowly resolving into something very fine.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2004
Bottle. On its own, this is a very satisfying porter. Much sharper in taste than the Shakespeare Stout, with a very assertive body for a porter. Lots of rich chocolate and roasted flavours and the classic rogue hop taste in a dark brown body. Surprisingly I got very little coffee flavours or aroma out of this beer. My one big problem though, is that after having this, the chocolate stout, and the Shakespeare stout over the weekend, I find that they are all much too similar in taste to each other. The chocolate stands on its own, and the Shakespeare I’ve rated before, so I suppose my disappointment is being reflected in the score for this. Good, but change it up a bit Rogue.

Heavy on the coffee, but don’t drink for breakfast. A good night cap if there ever was one.

Hmright (101) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - NOV 5, 2004
Coffee brown, with a tinge of red when held in the light. Way to bitter of an afterthought. Sweet teasing smell, but this one packs a mouthful. Very soft start with a harsh ending. Day-old-coffee-still-on-the-burner taste, with that awful lingering bitterness that i cant get rid of except to take another drink...and another. Big fan of the Porter, not a big fan of my first Rogue experience.
