3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep dark brown with light brown head, smell of roasted malt. Slight taste of dark chocolate and coffee, not as strong as I would expect from a mocha porter. Has mild hop bitterness for a nice finish on the palate. I really like this beer, although not as bold as would prefer, still a great tasting beer.

Not much head when I poured this out of the bottle (i love the light blue color on this Rogue bottle.) Fairly good porter. Plenty chocolate and coffee flavor. Has a slight smell of smoke. A full body taste. Strong bitter aftertaste.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle poured into pint glass
Aroma - Roasted malt, chocolate and coffee.
Appearance - Dark brown with ruby tinges. Quickly diminishing 2 finger tan head. Thin lacing on glass.
Flavor - Toasty malt with more coffee than the smell would indicate; bittersweet chocolate. Slight floral and citrus on finish.
Palate - Medium with a somewhat crisp carbonation. Well balanced, doesn’t linger like some porters.
Overall - One of my favorite American Porters. The ABV is @5%, so I’m having another!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Off white brown head poured at flying saucer. Molasses, coffee aroma. Good bitterness balanced well with the malt. If you're looking for a good roasted coffee and nutty porter this is not the one. However for a bitter porter with decent malt this is good. Malty and sweet at the beginning and long bitter aftertaste.

Şişe,istanbul,7/10/14. Siyah-çok koyu kırmızı ,ışık geçirmeyen bir renk ve çok kalıcı olmayan kahverengi küçük kabarcıklı köpük.. Köpük bardağı sarıyor. Bardakta orta seviye bir viskoziteye sahip..
Koku kahve, bitter çikolata, malt. Hafif fındıksı kokular da var..
Tadım başta malt ağırlıklı, ardından hafif çikolata tınıları ve bitiriş ise dil ve damakta kahve.. Hafif taze ceviz,fındık gibi kavrulmamış tat hisleri de araya karışıyor..
Çikolata ya da meyveli bir tatlı ile yenebilecek şekilde kalıcı kahve aroması uzun süre damakta hissediliyor..

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark chocolate and coffee aroma. Pours a deep dark brown and makes a fluffy light brown head. Mocha latte flavor is subdued by strong bittering. Medium/light on the palate. A decent porter.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a dark brown black, slightly cloudy in the leavings. Average carmel colored head - fizzy - mostly diminishing, fair lacing. Aroma was small on this one; some cocoa, mild coffee, cola, and alcohol - odd for the low abv. Good smells, but they could have come on a bit stronger. Nothing wrong, but nothing special. Lightly sweet, moderately bitter, aftertaste of coffee. Medium bodied at best - a little thin for a porter. Fizzy carbonation. This is the least noteworthy beer I have had from Rogue.
