Poured with a nice frothy head. Very classic porter style flavor which was rich and dark. However, the flavors were not as complex as I hoped. Suttle hints of coffee maybe, but more of the toasted flavors, if any.

Black. Ruby/brown edges. Small, creamy tan cap. Muted aroma of burnt, roasty malt and hints of mocha. Flavor steps it up, more roastiness, more mocha. Nice bittersweet flavor and aftertaste. Medium body, balanced carbonation. Decent.

a nice bitterness here, but with mocha in the name, I expected way more chocolatey flavor. Edmond Fitzgerald tastes more like mocha than this brew. Either way, an enjoyable porter. But for my money, Chocalate stout by this brewer delivers more flavor.

This is a decent beer. Sometimes I would get an acetone from the flavor... but Iíll chalk it up to improper storage. Not really mocha-ey, but mocha-ey enough... I think this qualifies as a session beer for me. Drink it in threes.

Bomber. Dark Brown with extremely thick head. Smelled like coffee and nut. Tasted a bit thin and simple for the first half of the bottle. It then grew on me and I sort of like the hop balance. The mocha didnít come through for me. I donít think Iíll pick this up again.

now this is an in youíre face hopped up amber for what i can tell. mocha (uh uhh) and loosely a porter. this beer is enjoyable and well hopped. refreshing yet a bit stanky on the palate. anyway pretty good beer.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Bottle. Hazy dark brown/black with a small off white head. Smells of roastiness, a little chocolate, coffee, overall very strongly stoutish aromas. Flavor strongly roasted, hints of coffee, a sharp hoppiness (though not as strong as other Rogue offerings), and the distinct finish of the Rogue Pacman yeast. Light on the palate. Overall, enjoyable sessionable porter.

I didnít like many of the Rogues, but this one was decent, better porters out there though.

I was really excited for this on a cold snowy night and although pleasant didnít quite live up to what the evening demanded. A light roasty aroma. The flavor is smooth, roasted malt, coffee and a bit of chocolate with a hop finish, but itís thin for what this beer is. Itís a solid beer, but it just didnít wow me.
