UPDATED: MAR 18, 2005 This is a very nice porter. Pours black with a thick, light brown head. Nice lacing on the glass. Tastes of mocha chocolate, coffee and some hops. Has a slightly roasty aftertaste with a light mouthfeel. Extremely drinkable, will buy again.

A very nice American porter. Chocolately, moderately hoppy, and very drinkable. Could be a little more roasty for my taste, but certainly better than Sierra Nevada and maybe on par with Anchor.

quite nice and drinkable, but surprisingly unchocolatey and watery. just doesn't seem well rounded to me, or up to par with their other great brews. just gave it an above average score. still better than most

Deimos (81) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Pours well, looks good, aroma of a little chocolate and coffee. The flavor, I found lacking. Seemed like it should be stronger and more varied. Clean finish with well balanced bitterness.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2005 Very good looking beer. as dark brown as a Coke with a nice fluffy, dark head. Strong chocolate aroma with some orangy smelling hops. A little too fizzy at first ending with a strong dark chocolate/ coffee taste. Letting it sit for a few minutes lets the fizziness dies down leaving a refreshing orange taste. A bit thin. The mouthfeel and the flavors don’t quite match up.

Ungstrup (31474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2004
This beer has a great aroma of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. The color is black with a red glow and a fine brown head. The flavor is thin in the beginning, but then You are hit by: malt, roasted bread, chocolate, wood, and coffee bitterness. A lovely flavor except for the weak start.

jcc83 (137) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Excellent. Poured a very dark brown with a thin, yet creamy head that lasted a good while. The aroma was absolutely rich, presenting fruity, sweet, malty, aromas with notes of wine and coffee. The flavor didn't disappoint. Complex, but focused around the sweet and malty tastes of chocolate and roasted coffee. Mouthfeel was sublime: thick, heavy, and creamy. Truly fantastic! Rogue rocks.

Very dark with a dark head to match. Smooth mouthfeel full of flavor. It all comes together very nicely.

Like a Chocolate Stout light. Very wonderful especially on tap. I can't wait for the Beer revolution Rogue is pushing comes to fruition. Nothing but good words for this beer.

Paid $1.39 for a 12-oz single. ($3.69 for a 650ml) BLACK with a very small, but creamy looking head. Rich chocolate in the nose. VERY bitter coffee going in. Smooth once inside, and finishes bitter once again. This is nice, but a tad too bitter for my taste. I'd have this again, but as a single, just like this time. More than one at a time would be too much.
