UPDATED: APR 22, 2003 Thick head pours similarly to Guinness. Sweet aroma. Very strong burnt chocolate/coffee flavor. Nice texture also, although I could stand it if it were a bit thicker.

Real nice appeearance, dark with a good tan head. Unlike a lot of people, I can definitely taste the mocha, especially at warmer temperatures. It has a coffee and choclate nose with mocha, choclate, and a very pronounced hops flavor. I don't think I've ever had a porter with more hops flavor than this. I huge difference in taste from the Stegmaier porter I just had and this. Both world class porters.

HighlanderOne (1002) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2003
I don't taste the mocha here, but definitely a good porter. Good head at start that lasts through the glass. And it wouldnt be Rogue without those hops. Wood/fruit overtones in the flavor. Very good feel and finish. I have to remenber that this is not a stout as I drink.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 22, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2003 A little less hoppier than the Shakespeare Stout. Pours black with a beige head and a good lacing effect. Dude on the bottle looks stoned! Chocolate and coffee flavor, typical of any porter. A bitter aftertaste similar to biting into a coffee bean. A nice porter.

VAYankee (327) - Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2003
Has a dark brown, nearly black, appearance with a full tawny head, and a mildly sweet mocha aroma. This beer starts out with a clear coffee flavor that is followed by a slightly bitter hop finish. An excellent, original beer; but there are better porters to be had.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - MAR 21, 2003
Pours a magnificent black with a thick beige head. the aroma was definitely coffee, chocolate, and hops bitterness. The flavor was more bitter with a coffee core. The finish was, again, coffee. I agree that this is very stout-like in appearance, aroma, and flavor, but the feel is just right for a porter. Great Great Great!

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - MAR 20, 2003
This is a damn good porter. Just the right balance of smooth chocolate, hop overtones and subtle sweetness. Pours black with a tawny persistant head. Almost stout-like. You can't go wrong with this one.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 20, 2003
Liquid black with a chocolate head, this brew had a surprisingly hoppy aroma that complimented the chocolate notes. Burnt chocolate malt flavor is not mind blowing. Metallic twinge and bitter-sour, and again, a very hopped up porter. Quite overrated.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Stong coffee/mocha aroma and flavor. Black in color. Creamy head, and creamy flavor. Smooth woth soft velvety finish.

Body is brown and black. Head is brown and large with good lacing. Nose is coffee, chocolate and grapes. Taste is coffee and sweet with a robust bitter finish.
