#100! Well I was somewhat disapointed with this one. faint chocolate aroma, dark brown color, medium body. The flavor is light roasted malt, and a nice dryhopped finish. I would have liked a little fuller body and flavor, and some more chocolate. But it’s still a Rogue and an above average beer.

This could easily pass for a stout, but as such wouldn’t score as well. As a porter, it’s incredible. Deep black with a tan head, it is well named with chocolate coffee tones. Good beer.

I am fortunate to have a very fresh sixer of this in bottles. This brew pours dark muddy black with a full enough body to rival any stout. The huge rocky head is brown with excellent lacing, and was still remaining when I took my last swig. The clean pleasant malty aroma is very complex with sweet roasted caramel coffee, and dark chocolate and is very cookie like. Rogue balances the malt aroma with flowers, resin, heavy citrus, dough, earth, plum, toffee, and date. The delicate (for a porter) but rich flavor is fresh, and clean. With a balance between moderate bitterness, sweetness, and acidity (a grapefruit like taste in the middle), this brew is everything I could ask for in a porter. The palate is syrupy and creamy with soft carbonation, yet finishes dry. It’s fullness is unsurpassed - I have had stouts with less body. Outstanding. I love this beer!!

Oh to live in Oregon and be near Rogue Brewery. It’s a dream. Every beer I’ve had from Rogue was worth trip. Tops on my hit list.

Good smell, good color, but bland taste. The coffee smell comes through, but the taste doesn’t. Whilst I like the stuff, I agree that it is a bit thin. Nothing about it is substandard, but it just doesn’t work quite right.
