3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown, thin beige foam. Looks kind of transparent although it is too dark to see through. Aroma has some toffee, coffee and roast malts. Sweet dark fruits also there. Taste is nicely hoppy, dark fruits, dried figs and plums are really evident, hop bitterness strong at first, later giving way to lingering roast burnt bitterness. Actually better than I expected, not a big fan of low alcohol coffee beers but this one is really enjoyable. Not much coffee there though.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 345 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with lighter highlights at the edge and a small but collapsing latte-coloured head. Aromas of raisins, coffee, baked apple, vanilla and chocolate, though lighter than expected. Taste is gentle dried fruit at first but soon overtaken by a firm black coffee bitterness sweeps in. Some chocolate and vanilla and a hint of tobacco at the end. Light bodied but with a nice underlying creaminess. Light fruity aftertaste. Very decent porter.

Decent Porter but nothing much out of the ordinary. It has an aroma of hops and chocolate and is not too outspoken.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was my first introduction to Rogue beers, and after trying many, is one of my favorite "standard price beers" from them. Has a very dark brown-near black appearance. Not super heavy, but I wouldn’t call it a thin either. Almost like a stout. Tastes of chocolate, little bit of caramel, and little bit of coffee. I didn’t notice the coffee flavor as much as some other coffee/mocha beers that I’ve tried. It’s been a while since I bought a 6-pack of this, as I’ve been trying other things. But after some trial and error, I’ll probably be picking a 6 up of Mocha Porter soon.............................................. 3/30/10- As good as I remembered. Coffee definitely noticeble but not overwhelming. Still one of my favorites by Rogue, and one of my favorite overall porters.
