Very dark with a dark head to match. Smooth mouthfeel full of flavor. It all comes together very nicely.

Like a Chocolate Stout light. Very wonderful especially on tap. I can't wait for the Beer revolution Rogue is pushing comes to fruition. Nothing but good words for this beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Paid $1.39 for a 12-oz single. ($3.69 for a 650ml)
BLACK with a very small, but creamy looking head.
Rich chocolate in the nose.
VERY bitter coffee going in. Smooth once inside, and finishes bitter once again. This is nice, but a tad too bitter for my taste.
I'd have this again, but as a single, just like this time. More than one at a time would be too much.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose seems rather typical of a porter, I don't detect anything mocha-like. Thick head, dissipates slowly. Good flavour, but again, where's the "mocha" part? Proper palate. Overall, good, but why is it called a "mocha porter" instead of "porter"?

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. It pours as a typical porter. I didn't notice much in the aroma area, only a slight hint of coffee. The flavor had hints of dark roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and a somewhat bread-like charteristic. There was a little bitterness and it finished both bitter and malty.

I'm not a big fan of porters but if you are this would be a good beer for you. Nice strong coffee flavor and a dark apperance. Left a little bit to strong of an aftertaste. Overall it was a good beer

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with a thin tan head. Mostly coffee in the aroma. Slightly watery on the palate. Mildly citric with a hint of chocolate. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hoppy nose that gives way to a little malt and some coffee. I dig the taste with the coffee and a milkyness that mixes together. however the hops are a bit overpowerring and kind of saturate any other malt sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with nice tan head. Roast malt aroma. Roast malt flavors as well with some coffee flavors. A tad thin.

The Mocha Porter pours an opaque black with a semi-creamy brownish head that quickly dissipated to a thin film and collar. It has a chocolate, coffee, roasted malt aroma. It has a nice malty initial taste that is heavy on coffee flavors. The finish is way too bitter for a porter though...kind of overwhelming. If not for that, this would be an excellent brew. As it is, it becomes very difficult to drink for me.
