A surprisingly light porter, although you’d never know by pouring it into a glass! Dark, dark brown with a small tan head that stays around a while. Nose is of chocolate mocha and grassy hops. Taste was rather light, also with more roasty notes in the nose than on the tastebuds. Still enjoyable and tasty. A good solid porter to introduce a friend to.

Caramel colored head, not exceedingly dense, but rich and gorgeous as it clung to the edges of the glass. I didn’t find as much in the aroma as I expected--almost a pale ale to me. Nor was there the depth of mocha-ness I thought a beer of this name deserved. So hoppy! A bit of coffee-like bitterness and some complementary flavors emerged in the 2nd half of it, but it still underwhelmed. (on tap, Flying Saucer, Addison, TX; thanks to Legion242 for buying this one!)

First Rating: 9/7/2000 A tie for the number porter on my all time list, malts, hops, rich and robust, one of the very best beers made in any style.

Re-Rate 09/29/02 Dark as midnight on the pour, the head is light chocolate, the lace thick sheets that cling to the very end of the glass. Nose is malt, semi-sweet chocolate, a tad coffeeish. Front is sweet, the top is medium, the finish is nicely hopped, dry, moderately acidic, and still a decent porter that ranks in my top 25 porters. Ranks #289 on my current 1000 beer master list.

Nice creamy thick head sits atop this dense chocolate colored brew. Dark roasted flavor. There’s a slight bitter or sour taste, but I can’t really put my finger on it. While good, I was expecting more complexity due to the list of ingredients. However, still an enjoyable porter.

Roasty, bitter, coffee flavor. Rogue likes hops in everything I have tasted. Dark tan head, opaque body. Maybe a bit too carbonated.

Great representation of a porter. Perfect roasty coffee flavor. Makes me wish I could brew a pot of this every morning... No better way to start the morning.

Low aroma but a wonderful ale otherwise. Makes me want to sit in front of a fireplace and just soak in the mocha. Rich flavor and full body. Consistently a winner!

Beautiful dark colour. Didn’t get much of a head, but the toasty aroma made up for that. Flavour is similar to the Shakespeare Stout, but with more coffee notes. Only complaint I had was that it was served to us too cold, but after letting it warm up for a while, it was a great brew.

This is my first rogue product and I was fairly impressed... a very stoutish porter really, with full malt flavor, roasted coffee, dark chocolate... not as dry as most porters tend to be, but not bad at all

A deep dark appearance, almost stout-like, roasted like a campfire marsmellow. Goes well with my favorite baked snack cracker: Goldfish
