Thick dark pour- light shall not pass-thick tan head-left some nice lacing- Chocolaty nose hints of coffe- Roasted malty flavor that mirrors the nose with the choco-coffee prescence. Subtle hoppy finish that almost gives it a bite in the end. Very nice

This was a very interesting beer. It poured a dark tan head, and had a very dark color. The aroma was nice with hints of chocolate and coffee. The Flavor was malty, with the bitter chocolate flavor coming through. Very good.

Porters are starting to grow on me, ummm. Big and dark. They must have a heap of hops and chocolate malt in here. Chocolate brown head, beautiful lacing, smooth, bitter, and tangy. If you like dark bitter chocolate, get in line for this.

flemdawg (541) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Dark, almost black color with ruby around the edges. The head was tan, and somewhat lasting. Also laced the glass a bit. The aroma is mostly coffee with some coco evident as well as malts. The taste was again coffee, but also some bitterness. Finish was smooth.

Nice roasted aroma to this deep dark bottle pour with decent off brown head. Very much a coffee and roasted espresso taste to it. The finish is of deep roast coffee that finishes with big hop bitters.

Reid (2078) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 18, 2003
Ok bought in the screen printed 22 oz brown bomber..label looks a lot different than the one displayed on the page. Appearance is of deep dark, dark brown almost black beer..impenetrable to light..small frothy tan head..leaves nice lacing. Smell for a Rogue is surprisingly weak..but I do detect some chocolate and hop hints. Nice strong taste of the coffee and malts at first then the ubiquitous hops spring forth in ambush..very unusual and nice. Nice on the palte pretty adventurous. Nice drinkable porter..winter is here and im enjoying porters so much more again.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - NOV 17, 2003
Very dark, opaque, reddish brown color, thick head of capuccino like foam. Sweet, malty, chocolate, liquor infused aroma. Sweet fruity palatefairly easy drinking and not as thick as you might expect. Turns chocolaty towards the end with an unexpectedly bitter finish, Coffee and chocolaty mocha comparisons are vague but still not a bad porter.

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Bottle: Bittersweet with a burnt aftertaste. Any hop bitterness is overshadowed by the burnt malt flavor. Note to brewers: just because it's called chocolate malt doesen't mean its going to taste like chocolate-but then you should know that right?

andy609 (143) - Auburndale, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 15, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2003 Pours a deep black with a nice brown head of large bubbles. Nice smell shows malt and hops but no mocha. Taste is initially slightly maltly with hops in the middle followed by the mocha in the finish. More like a stout than a porter because of the coffee flavors.

heemer77 (5174) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 14, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 Absolutely no head when I pured this out of the bottle. Fairly good porter. Lots of chocolate and coffee flavor. Has a strong earthy smell of smoke. A little smoky taste and a very full body. Strong bitter aftertaste.
