Very strong coffee aroma. Little carbonation/no head retention. Very dark. Coffee, chocolate malts and molasses dominate the flavor. Quite dry and somewhat hoppy. Nice.

This is some great beer! It’s more like a stout than a porter. Nearly black appearance with heavy coffee and chocolate aroma. Very chewy. Nice coffee and chocolate flavor and finish. This is even better then their Shakespeare Stout. This is right up there with Fuller’s London Porter. One of the best.

Tan frothy head. Ruby brown hue. Smooth drinking. Not my favorite as far as porters go. Not so hoppy as most rogues. But still a very good beer.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2002
Very pleasant roasted coffee aroma that carries over through the flavor. Hints of chocolate in the body and finish. This is full flavored and robust. I like it better than their chocolate stout.

Good hop nose. Sweet flavor with a sweet coffee, mocha profile. Well balanced. A good porter, but I’ve had better.

Deep black; head could be better; nice nose with substantial bitterness. Good bitter bite at first sip. In bottles, not nearly as "mocha" as I would like, but the kegs seem to retain the mocha more.

Pretty dark, until the sediment comes out. The 1 full ounce of sludge turned it to a hazy, opaque black, with a dark brown head. Chocolate, coffee, caramel, vanilla, hops, and horse shit(?). An odd aroma for sure. The flavors are strong, with a nice hop bitterness in the finish. I didn’t think it was too hard to find the coffee. This was a pretty damn good porter, even if I found an odd element in the aroma.
