DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2005 Great looking beer, very dark brown color with a long-lasting dark tan head. Brownie and chocolate malt aroma with a bit of charcoal. More brownie in the flavor along with yogurt-ish tartness and grapefruit rind hops. Kind of thin palate, but the flavors are rich and chocolately.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2003
The Mocha Porter pours a mountain of caramel head; the body is basically black and dense. The aroma has some little hints of chocolate, coffee, but smells of big hops.
The flavor is, WOW, big and dark chocolate roasty malt but mainly just BIG Perie & Conennial hops bitterness setting in here! Not the typical Porter because the hops are quit overpowering of the usual chocolaty / coffee / toffee flavors generally found in porters. Good, but not a personal favorite, certainly different though, very full body, but over all it's just BIG.

Suttree (5355) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 28, 2003
Blackish brown, or perhaps brownish black. Nice kahki head, with tan floaties throughout. Meaty, roasty aroma. Big burnt toast and hops flavor. Nothing fancy, just roasted malt and hops. Rogue remains predictable and consistant and thats one one of the reasons I admire them.

I enjoyed the rocky, dark tan head for several minutes, and it left a very thick lace on the glass and kept a fairly thick ring around the edge of the glass througout the entire beer. The body of the beer is dark brown. The aroma is of sweet chocolate and some coffee notes mixed with a hint of hops aroma. The taste is a kaleidescope of flavors that seemed to change with every sip. From bitter hops, to dark chocolate, to coffee, to roasted malt, then sweet chocolate. This beer had very complex flavors that were extremely enjoyable.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2003 Bottled. Sampled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Black. Light brown(poor) head that has some bubbles in it. Discrete flavour of coffee. Fruity, dry flavour with notes of coffee and juniper berry.

Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm 2003. Very dark with a fresh, hoppy aroma. Nutty character with some hoppiness and hints of chocolate.

Wunnerful stuff. Nice dark choco-head on it with a very satisfying and refreshing mouthfeel.

rlgk (12025) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2004 Really black, not much of a head. Aroma is clearly hoppy, but also brings chocolate. Flavor is a little roasted, chocolate and maybe some cocoa. A little bitter.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Quite a bit of hops, not surprising for Rogue. Dark brown, brownish head. Strong hop aroma with some coffee and hints of malt. Flavor is malty, chocolaty, roasty, and quite hoppy on the end. Pretty thick, long lingering finish. A nice porter, especially for those who are big on hops.

for some reason there was a little bothering on my tongue. oh well. not a drain though and the "little bothering" doesn't amount to alot anyway.
