UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew pours a beautiful small dark brown head with bubbles of all sizes and a pitch black opaque body with some carbonation seen rising up the side of the mug. The receding head leaves behind a fair lacing. It has a mild malty/hoppy aroma with a slight coffee initial taste and a strong somewhat bitter coffee finish with a bite.

Rogue sure nows how to make a beer look good. This is ust as dark as their stout, but is lacking. THe only mocha flavor came up when I burped. Still a very nice brew

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 29, 2003
Pours with an opaque dark brown to black body topped by a medium thick lasting light brown head with a good amount of lace. Slightly sweet roasted coffee/chocolate aroma with a good balance of malt and hops. Roasted coffee and malt flavor with a slightly nutty hoppiness. The finish is smokey and hoppy. Full bodied and slightly dry with a slight tingle on the tongue.

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.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2003
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 (1359) - 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.

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.
