Near black in colour, some deep amber around the sides of the glass. Thin tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, sugar, malt and coffee. Flavour was quite roasty, medium bodied, some coffee, sweetness and cocoa. Finished with a medium chocolate bitterness. Thanks beerhugger for sharing this bottle with me.

Pours nearly black, with a hint of red. Lots of chocolate malt and coffee in the aroma. Nice dry, bitter taste, almost like chewing on a coffee bean.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 I liked the rich reddish brown, closing in on black, colour and the creamy tan head with lingering lacing. Aroma and flavour both revealed the expected chocolate and coffee, and the slightly bitter aftertaste stayed nicely. Wouldn't choose this over the Shakespeare or Chocolate Stouts but would happily drink this over many other beers....

On tap. A barely-translucent black color with a tan head. A nice coffee-chocolate blend in the flavor followed by an extremely smooth finish. It doesn't hold up to Chocolate or Shakespeare Stout, but this is a good one nonetheless.

I liked this one. Creamy and rich, it's an excellent choice if you don't like the bitter, burnt taste of a Stout. Very nice!

Great porter. Not as hoppy as the reviews here would lead you to believe, especially for a west coast brew. Thick, malty mouthfeel is the dominant aspect here. A fine brew.

A very fine porter. Has a unique Mocha flavor. Goes very well with the chocolate taste. A very good porter.

Cascade and choc malt aroma. Too strong on the cascades though, as the grapefruit, floral flavours overpower the far less overt choc-malt flavours that should be playing a far greater role in this beer.

Very dark with about a one finger head and good lacing. Attractive aroma of roasty malt, blackberry jam and hops. Medium to full in body with coffee and cocoa flavors, a bit smoky and quite hoppy. I tend to agree with those who say that some of Rogue's beers are overhopped, and this one is certainly not lacking in that regard but it seemed to work for me this time. Lingering finish on the bitter side and I noticed more sweetness here than upfront. Pretty good.

First let me say that I am not a big fan of porters. But I actually enjoyed this one. Dark and thick with a thin brown head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. The nose is heavy with malts and some hops. The taste is creamy, malty and sharply bitter with chocolate. Easy to drink and overall quite pleasant.
