UPDATED: MAY 10, 2008 (5/10/08, 12oz bottle) Cola-black body topped by creamy medium head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, coffee, cream, some earthy, cola. Taste is medium sweet, coffee, some coffee bitterness, earthy, cream. Creamy medium body. (8/5/7/4/15)

(2/13/02) Very nice porter. Obvious coffee overtones, though the chocolate isn’t far behind. very smooth. hops make their presence noted more in the aftertaste than anywhere else. (8/4/8/4/16)

bu11zeye (12405) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2003
(Bottle) Pours a dark brown (almost black) color with a medium-sized tan head. One of the best tasting porters that I have sampled. Had hints of chocolate, grapefruit, and the tranditional Rogue hoppy bite.

FatPhil (12201) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 17, 2008
650ml bottle - thanks, Anna’s parents!
Almost black, dense tan head. Sweet roasty malts in the aroma. Fairly soft palate, with an immediate burnt edge noticeable on the back of the tongue. Taste is focused on that drying charcoally burnt edge, and is at first a little uninspiring. Some pleasant spiky hops build over time, which makes it a far more interesting brew. Certainly nothing particularly wrong with it - it’s a pretty tasty quaffer as it’s not too unbalanced.

imdownthepub (12170) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2006
Bottled, 650ml, pasteurised. Black with ruby hue, brown tan head. Thick and dry porter with a heavy, tarry nose and a heavily roasted malt body. Plenty of chaffy notes with a coffee husk background and a touch of treacle. Bitter on the finish, its fine but not refreshing.

Ratman197 (12160) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Bottle poured a clear brownish black with red highlights and a large lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of roasted malt coffee, milk chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of roasted malt, light coffee and a hint of cocoa with a smooth lingering bittersweet finish. Kinda on the watery side for the style in my opinion.

Benzai (11857) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle @ home shared with Thompson after he crushed and demolished me in multiple poker games. Thanks Thomas my good friend. You bastard. Anyway, dark brown color, dark red glow coming through when held into the light, medium sized light brown color that diminishes quite quickly. Aroma of malts, dark malts, mocha, dark chocolate. Taste malts, caramel, dark malts, mocha, chocolate, bitter. Medium body and carbonation.
