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.

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.

Another nice brew from Rogue. Just the right amount of sweet and bitter to make this a balanced porter. It's on my buy again list.

Great dark and rich color of beer and head. Not too sweet. Perfect amount of sweet chocolate, coffee taste with a bitter taste.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2003
Light tan head dissipates quickly. Has a sweet aroma, but this one is dominated by a rich, bitter chocolate overtone. There is a slight, sweet malty undertone as the beer warms on the tongue. A rich alternative to sweeter porters (e.g., Anchor Steam Porter). Solid.

Ida7999 (105) - Milford, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 22, 2003
- dark brown-black color, strong mocha-chocolate aroma, hints of alcohol; very strong mocha character – coffee and chocolate – bitter, roasted, and dry, a bit too much carbonation

Fairly dark for a porter with an off white head. Super chocolate aroma with a touch of fruit and citrus. Flavor is a bit of a let down (not as robust as the aroma except the especially bitter finish). Bitter finish is not so well done (overdone maybe or not sharp enough).

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2003
Dark Brown, almost opaque beer under a beige head; mixture of large & small bubbles, and a slight haze due to a pour pore. I got some of the yeast in the glass. Aroma is sort of earthy hoppy; roasty and chocolate starts to come through as it warms, I do also get some caramel and burnt aromas as well. Flavor is roast grain, bitter dark grain(slightly acrid), but surprisingly not a lot of sourness from the dark grains. Well balanced but finishes dry and bitter with a hop flavor and burnt grain. Mouthfeel is dry and slightly astringent due to dark grain and hops. Carbonation is low and body is a little light. Not a beer I'd care to drink more than one or two of, but interesting enough to try more than once.

I found it thin and lacking those intangibles that make up really good porters. The slight bitter undertones did not smooth out as it warmed. Not bad but certainly not great
