sfontain (845) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Pours a virtually opaque black with a healthy-sized dark brown head that eventually diminishes significantly. A bit of fine sludge on the bottom. Aroma is mostly coffee. Flavor is also mostly coffee with a light hint of chocolate; very roasty and very bitter in the end. Flavor does not last particularly long. A little too bitter for me. Good, but slighly disappointing. I’d take an Anchor porter over this any day.

Nice appearance in the glass. Chewy texture, slight chocolate, coffee beans and mocha laced with prune. Finish was a little creamy as forecasted. Was a bit disappointed in this one given the brewer is consistenly one of my favorites - I hope Rogue will begin to focus a little more on quality versus quanity in the near future. I’d honestly still prefer a Fuller’s or Sammy Smith’s Taddy Porter.

pacman (9) - muncie, Indiana, USA - MAY 1, 2004 does not count
Some dark roast malt aroma and that’s about it. Black! No light coming thru this beer. Small tan head that disapears quick. Dark, roasty, coffee flavor with a touch of maltiness. Little bit of a lingering roast malt bitterness. Medium body with quite a bit of carbination. Overall, it’s not one of Rogue’s better beers... It’s almost like drinking carbonated coffee....

Sammy (9693) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2004
In your mouth carbonation and hops and bitterness with some mocah masking. Light and whipped Expresso Coffee and creamy but somewhat artificial. Reddish brown colour.

biznizness (1140) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2004
Pours very dark with a tan head. There is some fizzyness in the mouth. Great flavor, only slightly mocha, with a bit of hops in the finish. Nice porter.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2004
Appearance: deep, dark black, showing no light anywhere, with a large, creamy, toasted tan head. Aroma: soft, full of cocoa, roasted coffee, burnt notes. A sizzling effect on the palate, a fine, fuzzy meeting with the tongue, a great, hoppy feeling, and it soon fizzles, but not without leaving a distinctly roasty feeling on the finish. Full-bodied as they get, with a rich taste, delicious bitterness in every sip, at first, but it's quickly matched by the rich, and sometimes sweet flavor. Tasty, tasty, tasty! A smile rises on me with every swallow! The chocolate character is felt, too, but it's light as a shadow. To be called a "mocha" porter, this ale would need a heartier helping of the cocoa bean. That's my main, and only, criticism. For a plain porter, this one's got it all!

Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2004
Very dark brown pour with a thin light brown head. Aroma is very potent which is not surprising with so much ingredients. Full on the dark chocolate and grapefruity C-hops, very hoppy basically, rich and hinting at vanilla and nuts. It doesn't fail at offering nice mocha flavors, but this remains a bit spoiled for me by the roasty/tart/citric combo. Great smooth mouthfeel though. Finish is moderately bitter and a bit short.

12 oz bottle. Sweet aroma with dark malt and little hops noticeable. Sweet and roast malt with bitter-sweet finish. Medium body.

BeerandBlues2 (10842) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 12, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 Aroma of toasty malts and hops, with caramel and chocolate notes. Opaque burnt toast in appearance with a rocky tan head and some lacing. Somewhat sweet start, then hoppy and dark chocolate toasted malt with a tapering hop finish. Palate is dark and full bodied.

zach8270 (3882) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 9, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [bottle] Pours a nice dark black with a thick tan head. Strong coffee aroma with a slight hint of chocolate. When you taste it, you can definitely taste malt and coffee with a slight burnt/roasty followup.
