UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 This beer defines "palate" as far as the bitter side of "palate" is concerned. It poars a black that is really dark brown/ruby. The head is disappointingly weak and cheap looking. The initial tastes are of lightly roasted maltiness and sweetness, dark chocolate, and perhaps vanilla. There is a long trailing bitter that starts off mildly acidic or citrusy and ends with definite plumbs. Its a bit too thin and fizzy overall.

Bottle. Nearly jet black pour, small light tan head. My nose was stuffy, so I had a hard time picking out aromas, but I caught a nice balance of hops and malts. Light roasted chocolate malt, I think, with the hops. That would make sense...ok movin’ on...I get more hops than malt from this brew, seems strange for a porter. Bitter chocolate and coffee tones show up in the end with the hops. Somewhat thin feel. More bitter chocolate comes out as I sit and type this up. I’d really really like this if it had more body to it, it just feels kind of thin, but I like the flavors I’m pulling out.

DYCSoccer17 (3620) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Roasted more chocolate than coffee aroma with a slight piney hop aroma as well. Mostly opaque brown color with a gorgeous frothy light tannish-yellow head. Sweet, roasty chocolately start with a moderate amount of coffee (I still detect more chocolate). Finishes pretty hopped up with some PNW hoppiness. The hops are not overdone, which makes this beer very enjoyable.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Tasted at the Jan. KC Bier Meisters meeting. Poured from a 12oz bottle. Black with light brown head. Coffee, bittersweet chocolate, sweet aroma. Roasty, malty flavors with coffee. Nice mouthfeel, but somewhat thin. One of the best beers of the night.

lamas (1549) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 14, 2005
22 oz. bottle. Pours almost opaque-black with thick tan fluffy head. Aroma is of roasty malts and some hops. Taste is very well-balanced. Roastiness dominates all the way. Nicely bitter all the way through. Hints of coffee and chocolate are present. Very roasty and bitter dry finish.

Pour is a deep black with a tan head. Aroma is faint but you get some malted hops there. Flavor is a very nice roasted malt. Probably one of the more "roasted" porters I have ever had. I also get the usual coffee and caramel in there which make this a wonderful beer experience.

GoldenSpunky (120) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2005
bottle 2004 at toasted heads bar and grill for Simon happy hour. Aroma of chocolate with classic Rogue style flavors of caramel, coffee, swiss miss, roasted hops and lovely herbs. Taste of malty but not over the top. The flavors mixed together to form a well balanced porter that was nice after a meal.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2005
22 oz. bottle. Dark ruby colour with a mostly lasting frothy and rocky tan head. Dry and lightly acidic roasted coffee aroma. Roasty and acidic coffee flavour with subdued chocolate notes and a roasty bitter finish. Medium bodied, lightly chewy mouthfeel.

I was expecting more. Poured from a 12oz bottle. Very little head, but it did have a nice little mocha flavor. I will stick with Anchor.

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2005 bottle. How can a describe this one? This is a great beer but its missing a little something in some category to be on the top. Deep black color with reddish tint with a thin tan head that goes off quickly. Smells like malts and chocolate (subtle). Taste: rosted malt and bitterness (chocolate and hops) at the finish. Cette biere est tres bien mais il lui manque un petit quelque chose pour etre encore meilleur. Noir profond avec des reflets rouges mais, le collet est tres mince et disparait rapidement. A l’odeur, cest le malt et le chocolat, mais c’est tres discret. Au gout, le grain griller bien sure, mais aussi l’amertume du houblon et du chocolat noire a la fin.
