Almost black with a tan head. Not much aroma, with coffee and malt dominating. Very nice, with the chocolate understated and pleasantly bitter. The palate was very smooth and velvet, with a nice finish.

A very good porter, I’d rank this up with Anchor and Stegmaier Porters as some of the best that I’ve had to date. Does Rogue make a bad beer?

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Opaque black color with a medium tan head. Strong roasted coffee and grapefruit hops aroma. Very sweet malt, bitter grapefruit hops, and roasted coffee flavors. Nice medium thick feel with a slightly dry hops finish.

ElGaucho (2275) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2004
Deep chocolate roasted malt aroma. Chalky. Opaque with small tan head. Not much lace. After attending the Great Taste of the Midwest and sampling some really big flavorful beers, I have come to the conclusion that even notworthy brewers like Rogue dumb down some of their beers for a wider audience, when they could be so much more. Case in point with the Mocha Porter. It is a savory brew, but I expected more flavor from Rogue and really didn’t enjoy it much at all.

2ndstage (4) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2004 does not count
Bottle in Amarillo, Smooth porter a little light on the expected chocolate tones you would expect. Fairly mellow mouthfeel maybe thinner than I would like in a porter. Nice dark brown appearance with long lasting tan head.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2007 May 24th 2007 Re-rate <P> Chocoff. Has a bit of brown ale nutty notes and some creamy cocoa. The body is black with a massive three finger thick mocha head that fades slowly. sweet coffee/cocoa/chcolate/roasted malt fore. Maybe the one Rogue beer that isn’t hopped beyond all pleasure. Has some creamp frappachino like notes and ends sweet and roasty. <P> Original Rating was a 4 <P> From a bottle at yeoman’s Road Pub in Tampa. Fantastic. Hoppy and malty. Sweet and bitter. Has a little bit of everything while still being very drinkable.

BrockLanders (779) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Deep dark brown color, opague. Brown frothy head. A slight mocha coffee aroma with a big nose of hoppiness. A little thin, but with loads of flavor. Black currant, roasted malt, espresso coffee and a little bitter chocolate. Long toasty bitter hops and chocolate finish. A nice beer that reminds me of the "Old Cove Porter" we make on our stove top.

mohawksin (187) - Nebraska, USA - AUG 12, 2004
Smells of roated malt, and a sour hops aroma too. Very dark pour, I’m a big fan, with a thin off white head. Nice roasted malt flavor(s), sweet, with a bitter finish. Heavy, and tasting pretty nice on this cool night.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 11, 2004
Pours a deep brown with a tan head. Good lacing. Roasted malts and coffee aroma. Balanced hop and malt combo with mild coffee and chocolate flavor with some caramel notes. Mildly sweet palate with a creamy mouthfeel. A little bitter aftertaste but not bad. Overall...fair. Worth more than a try. A good occasional beer.
