Complex assortment of flavors. Kind of Foldgers meets Sanka at a monster truck rally, and they decide to get drunk. This porter goes well complimenting food. Dark rugged flavor, and not the least bit smooth. This beer's flavor has an attitude.

Well, who would have thought this beer smells of coffee. Chocolate is also in the mix of the aroma. Beer is darl, moderate creamy foam head. Flavor is bitter, with heavy malt tones throughout. Hops dont become present until the end, where it feels very bitter and thin.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - APR 27, 2003
Black appearance. Strong choccolate and coffee notes. A high quality beer. A little too bitter and heavy for me.

Panzuriel (1316) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2003
Deep and Dark beer with a very very nice opaque body. Dark chocolate nose with good roasted mitters. Nice coffee taste. Dark and delicious. Texture is nice.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 10, 2003
UPDATED: APR 24, 2004 Dark brown/red with average size light tan head. Some chocolate aroma. Sweet chocolate and coffee (that means mocha I guess?) flavors to start; dry bitter/burnt and hops finish. A little thin, but not bad. Rerate: Hoppy aroma, not unlike most Rogue beers. The mocha comes through stronger in the finish. Medium body; tingling carbonation. Quick roasty finish. You know, I love Rogue, porter is a great style, I dig mocha, but this beer is just tough to really get into. Slightly higher rating the second time around.

jjw2000 (72) - USA - APR 5, 2003
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.

ConiseurofBeer (242) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2003
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 (1016) - 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 (2622) - 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 (332) - 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.
