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.

Pours a nice, dark brown with a medium tan head. Pretty carbonated brew. Aroma is slight chocolate (although very faint) and alcohol. Flavor is somewhere between cheap, metallic chocolate and a burnt piece of toast. A real smoky mouthful. Slightly above average porter although I don’t think I’ll finish the bottle..

Pours dark brown with an amber head. Aroma of coffee. Taste is weird. A jumble of coffee, malt, chocolate that finishes with a bitter sour mix. Not my favorite Rogue.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2008 An alright beer but I thought it was going to be better! Nice color and a pretty good smell. The taste is rich black coffee at first, but then it leaves you with a severe bitter burnt coffee taste at the end.

Drake (8251) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 21, 2008
12 oz bottle from Whole Foods Charlottesville. Very dark rootbeer tinted black. Aroma of chocolate and sourness. Nice chocolate taste balanced with a nice hoppiness, but there is a bit of a metallic taste also present. This is average.

Deep coffee and chocolate flavors...lighly hopped and an undeniable sweetness that curls in the foretaste. Although this is not my favorite style of brew, it was pretty enjoyable nonetheless.

This brew was what I expected thought I hoped for better. I need to learn to avoid the ’mocha’ and ’vanilla’ beers as I have not found on that I really like. Not horrible. I won’t go out of my way to find but would enjoy this over any lite beer.

(Bouteille de 355 ml - Dégusté avec french tickler) Biere de couleur noir avec un moyen collet tres collant de couleur brun pale. Odeur de chocolat, un peu de café, alcohol et un peu de sucre. Gout de blé, cerise et un semblant de vin rouge.

Crushed with Jakebra. Nothing great here. Just a roasty porter. That’s all it has to offer. Pleasant to drink, but it tastes too similar to my bad homebrew porter, which might not even be a porter.
