Great porter. Not as hoppy as the reviews here would lead you to believe, especially for a west coast brew. Thick, malty mouthfeel is the dominant aspect here. A fine brew.

A very fine porter. Has a unique Mocha flavor. Goes very well with the chocolate taste. A very good porter.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2003
Cascade and choc malt aroma. Too strong on the cascades though, as the grapefruit, floral flavours overpower the far less overt choc-malt flavours that should be playing a far greater role in this beer.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - DEC 29, 2003
Very dark with about a one finger head and good lacing. Attractive aroma of roasty malt, blackberry jam and hops. Medium to full in body with coffee and cocoa flavors, a bit smoky and quite hoppy. I tend to agree with those who say that some of Rogue's beers are overhopped, and this one is certainly not lacking in that regard but it seemed to work for me this time. Lingering finish on the bitter side and I noticed more sweetness here than upfront. Pretty good.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 28, 2003
First let me say that I am not a big fan of porters. But I actually enjoyed this one. Dark and thick with a thin brown head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. The nose is heavy with malts and some hops. The taste is creamy, malty and sharply bitter with chocolate. Easy to drink and overall quite pleasant.

Deep dark brown almost black pour with a thin to medium sized head. "Mocha" definitely in the aroma, some coffee as well. Dark chocolate flavor, some coffee and a hint of molasses as well. Not the best porter, I wasn't a big fan of the taste but it was alright.

(Bottle) Pours a dark brown (almost black) color with a medium-sized tan head. One of the best tasting porters that I have sampled. Had hints of chocolate, grapefruit, and the tranditional Rogue hoppy bite.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2005 Had this one on tap in a Flying Saucer in Fort Worth. A really hot waitress recommended this and when I heard "Mocha", I told her no. She brought it anyway, which is proof that this hot chick knew her brew. This is probably one of the best porters that I have ever had anywhere. Nice and dark color, with a good head. Good strong flavor with great body and nice easy finish (sort of like the waitress).

Bottle. Poured dark brown with burnt orange highlights and a moderate tan head. Aroma is dark toasted malts, coffee with hints of chocolate and grapefruit hops. Flavor features the bitter-sweet coffee malts upfront, a little bakers chocolate in the middle and a smooth molasses and hop finish. Medium full body with a moderate carbonation. This one is best quite warm.
