3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hmmm. Thought I had rated this one. Oh well, here goes. Good roasty flavors but the really dry palate killed it for me. Also, I didn’t pick up any fruity flavors which I have in other porters that I liked better. I’ll finish the 6er but won’t buy another. There are just better ones on the shelf. Surprisingly less than stellar beer from Rogue.

Quite an enjoyable porter. Way overpriced in my area, I’m afraid. I’m not sure why Rogue feels it can price its sixers at $10 in NC.

Yet another fine beer from Rogue. Dark brown colour with a nice tan head. Malt is the predominate flavor with the chocolate with a hint of roast shining through. If you find a bad one either its very very old or you don’t know good beer.

thanks to fiulijn for giving this beer a second time (I broke it the first time ...) - black coloured, little brown tainted foam, roasted aroma of black chocolate, mocha and nuts, medium to full-bodied, tart and very bitter, slightly oily, long dry roasted coffeish finish - delicious !

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color beer with a nice foamy head with great retention. Aroma of roasted malt is dominating and seems to leave little place to the coffee aroma that I was expecting. Taste is dominated by bitterness and roasted malt and again I find little of the coffee/chocolate taste I was expecting. Overall, not bad but I’m a bit disappointed by this one.
