sayravai (4706) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 15, 2005
(Bottled) Very dark brown color with a small, lacy and disappearing head. Roasted-malty, sweetish and milky aroma with smoothly bitter hops and lots of coffee. Very roasted-malty and ashy, dryish flavor. Medium to full-bodied, low-carbonated, creamy palate. A very nice, dry and hoppy, yet smooth and creamy porter.

Roasty chocolate smell. Dark, Dark brown. Bitter chocolate and slight hops. Body is full for a porter but lacks definition.

hezron (613) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - APR 13, 2005
Looks just like I’m pouring a cup of coffee, except that it has a big, light brown head. Smells like fresh bread with a hint of chocolate. Tastes like burnt coffee with a bitter, roasted barley finish. Medium thickness that leaves a dry feeling in my mouth.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 10, 2005
Bottle. Black colour with a big baige head. Light roasted coffee chocolat aroma and a roasted dry coffee bitter chocolat taste. Medium body and a dry roasted bitter finish.

fiulijn (17990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 <i>2008-12-12, 2 years old, 7-4-6-3-13=33</i>
Black color; generous creamy head. The aroma is very nice, fresh and interesting, despite the age of the bottle, with black olives and chocolate, light vanilla; hops. The body is lean, there is a good chocolate flavor, with a bit too much roasted malt for my taste; in the final there are some roasted nuts too, quite dry final, almost harsh burnt character. Good enough.

Brown color. Some roasted malt aroma, with some hidden hops. Quite good Stout, with a one dimensional roasted malt character.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 5, 2005
Pours black, nearly opaque. Medium brown head sits on top. Aroma is of roasted malt and even a little bit of smoke. Flavor is quite robust. Roasted malt first and foremost, followed by slight caramel and slight coffee. Full bodied. Dry in character with significant acidity. Not bad.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 5, 2005
Possibly a bit out of style. minor malt acidity that is more akin to a stout. Mildly lactic and astringent up front with some mocha in the nose. Rich and bittersweet on the palate with a lactic acidity and mild astringency on the finish.

cathcacr (646) - Oregon, USA - APR 2, 2005
A thicker and richer porter than the "original" style. Coffee character no stranger here, but still pretty moderate. No head here. I’m a little split on this one. Sometimes there’s a lot there, sometimes not. I could rate it around 4.1 depending on one sip and around 3.5 depending on the next. I split the difference.

ABUSEDGOAT (2469) - California, USA - APR 2, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2007 Black pour, moderate head, decent lacing and retention. Aroma is cheaper coffee, roast, chocolate, caramel, some hop notes. Body is relatively light but not too light. A fairly bitter porter but still enjoyable. Very solid.

swirl (267) - collingswood, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Deep black with a full tan head. Coffee aromas and nice balanced mocha taste. Crisp and inviting another good beer from Rogue.
