Rastacouere (6162) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2004
Very dark brown pour with a thin light brown head. Aroma is very potent which is not surprising with so much ingredients. Full on the dark chocolate and grapefruity C-hops, very hoppy basically, rich and hinting at vanilla and nuts. It doesn't fail at offering nice mocha flavors, but this remains a bit spoiled for me by the roasty/tart/citric combo. Great smooth mouthfeel though. Finish is moderately bitter and a bit short.

12 oz bottle. Sweet aroma with dark malt and little hops noticeable. Sweet and roast malt with bitter-sweet finish. Medium body.

BeerandBlues2 (11048) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 12, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 Aroma of toasty malts and hops, with caramel and chocolate notes. Opaque burnt toast in appearance with a rocky tan head and some lacing. Somewhat sweet start, then hoppy and dark chocolate toasted malt with a tapering hop finish. Palate is dark and full bodied.

zach8270 (3961) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 9, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [bottle] Pours a nice dark black with a thick tan head. Strong coffee aroma with a slight hint of chocolate. When you taste it, you can definitely taste malt and coffee with a slight burnt/roasty followup.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 8, 2004
Pours a deep somewhat transparent black with a beige head. Aroma of burnt grains, coffee, and American hops. Mild taste. Not too roasty or full of coffee either. Mocha flavor comes out as it warms.

Verne (263) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2004
Yep looks just like a porter, almost black but you can still see through it, thick head. Hop aroma (citrusy) makes it through the coffeeish roasted smell. Complex flavor lots of roasted flavors a bit dry for style but I like it a lot more than my rating may tell you. This is a very drinkable beer

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 3, 2004
The flavor of this brew has somewhat of a smokey, roasted, bitter-sweetness to it that finishes fairly dry and long. A decent brew from Rogue, but not one of their better ones.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2004
650 ml. Bottle. Drinking this one right now. Dark black with some amber showing through the light. Medium sixed head with good lacing. The odor is of molasses, coffee, corn flakes, and chocolate. Hints of roastiness, coffee, dark chocolate, and raisins. Bittersweet with a firm malty body and pungent hops. The finish is smooth, creamy, and toasty-roasty. A very nice porter.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 27, 2004
Poured a dark brown with a slight reddish hue. Nice roasted aroma. Fresh ground coffee on the nose. It's like black coffee; not very sweet, but it's a little creamy. Very dry and roasted. Nice coffee/hop after taste. A really good porter.

A passable version of a porter, but the more I drink of mocha porter the more I grow to dislike it. It seems to be the lack of a sweetness present in most other porters. However, judging by the name, I think Rogue wasn't trying to draw similarities among other porters. This is definately different, with a coffee flavor that is entirely welcome if in the right mood. Judge for yourself.
