UPDATED: JUN 4, 2006 This was a very nice, sweet, light, drinkable porter. It didn’t amaze me with really strong flavor, but it was very pleasant and went down smooth. I liked the aroma of chocolate flavor, the texture was pretty good, coudl have been a little thicker. I would drink it again.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Poured a dark brown, almost opaque black, thick tan head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee. A little thin on the palate. The flavor is just bitter as hell coffee abd roasted malt. Very, very bitter finish. I was not a huge fan of this beer.Your money would be better spent on a six pack of Anchor porter.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2011 Dark as can be, with a redness underneath. A tan head. Deep chocolate, coffee, fruity flavor. Not especially full bodied, but flavorful.

Radek Kliber (6543) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 26, 2004
Rich deep velvety aroma, just as I like it. Dark chocolate, cocoa, and soft rich Kona coffee and to all of that decent amount of hops. Medium bodied with substantial carbonation, dark chocolate is more dominant than expected, mocha theme sadly shows late. Bitter finish with a bit to thin malt that had no power to carry on aftertaste.

FormatKid (7) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 24, 2004 does not count
Out of the bottle a characteristic black with blood red tinges when held to light. Head rolls up titanically and is suprisingly white. Lacing is stoic and clings in chunky web patterns down the length of the glass. A vague fruity smell hovers over this beer along with tangy bitter aromas and playful hints of unsweetened cocoa and dark roasted coffee beans. The taste is amazing. Soft bitter cocoa notes blendslowly into mellow roasty coffe flavors. Earthy bitterness from the hops register at the back and edges of my tongue. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is almost zippy. An amazing porter...will rogue ever let me down?

hotstuff (4303) - Indiana, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Indiana Ale Fest at Fort Wayne. Bottle. Poured a small sized tan head that contained fine-small sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. Uncarbonated, opaque and a dark brown hue. The aroma was malty, chocolate, coffee and hops. The taste was lightly bitter, coffee and some hops which left a mild aftertaste. The mouthfeel was smooth and this was a medium bodied beer with sparse lacing.

shadey (1929) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 23, 2004
Delicious. Black pour with a thin dark tan head. Coffee smell with a little bit of chocolate. The chocolate reappears in the flavor. What a great dessert beer.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAY 22, 2004
Well-formed brown tar head sitting atop an oily looking, opaque mahogany body. Through the pocked holes in the bubble’s surface I smell fresh, grassy clean hops, some sugary rich malts and no mocha yet. This smells more like an APA than a porter. Taste is hop-strong starting sweet blended with sour apples and soured milk transitioning to a full-fledged, flaming hop finish. Very, very roasted bitter. Enough to make the back of your tounge sweat and crinkle. I find myself lifting the glass over and over to get that viciously bitter, roasted coffee and chocolate goodness in the aftertaste. Its very enjoyable. The mocha is present throghout the palate, alcohol is trace.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Dark brown color with a creamy tan head. Smell is very roasted with a coffee scent. Flavor is creamy with chocolate, roasted nuts, and coffee. Very smooth and lighter on the palate than what it looks. Very drinkable.
