Veeks (62) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 26, 2010
nice hint of chocolate is blended with a balance of light roasted malt for a really nice porter that continues my respect for Rogue Brewery

airrick2003 (634) - Louisiana, USA - APR 29, 2015
Appearance: pours with a smaller tan head, the beer is a very black color and it's really hard to even see any color on the edges Aroma: strong coffee, chocolate, Taste: coffee, moderate sweetness, lighter bitterness, Palate: average carbonation, medium mouthfeel, bitter coffee aftertaste Overall: a solid porter, leans more to the sweet side than the bitter side but still not overly sweet, I like it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Erzengel (4967) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 26, 2015
The beer starts fresh and malty-roasted. Fresh and smooth. Hints of sourness, dry and malty, nice roast. The bitterness is not too intense, but nice. Dark dry roast in the aftertaste. Nice but not too deep.

gegwilson (1797) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015
Bottle from the National Winter Ales Festival, Derby. Pours deep brown, almost black with a cream head. The aroma is mocha, as you would expect. The taste is coffe and chocolate also with some light spice. The body is a bit on the thin side. Otherwise very good and goes down very easy.

355 mml bottle tasted on the 18/04/2015. Dark brown colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and intense roasted malts. Taste is intense black coffee with some fruitness and licorice. Dry aftertaste with presence of hops. Next one please!

jinroh (633) - ESTONIA - APR 20, 2015
Pours dark brown, thin beige foam. Looks kind of transparent although it is too dark to see through. Aroma has some toffee, coffee and roast malts. Sweet dark fruits also there. Taste is nicely hoppy, dark fruits, dried figs and plums are really evident, hop bitterness strong at first, later giving way to lingering roast burnt bitterness. Actually better than I expected, not a big fan of low alcohol coffee beers but this one is really enjoyable. Not much coffee there though.

Jado (623) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2015
From 345 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with lighter highlights at the edge and a small but collapsing latte-coloured head. Aromas of raisins, coffee, baked apple, vanilla and chocolate, though lighter than expected. Taste is gentle dried fruit at first but soon overtaken by a firm black coffee bitterness sweeps in. Some chocolate and vanilla and a hint of tobacco at the end. Light bodied but with a nice underlying creaminess. Light fruity aftertaste. Very decent porter.

Geiserich (3585) - Linz, AUSTRIA - APR 19, 2015
Bottle: Very dark brown color, creamy brown head. Aroma is very roasty, malty, notes of dark chocolate, burnt cacao. Flavor is also malty and roasty, dark chocolate, black coffee, some sweetness. Good.

alomtnez (138) - SPAIN - APR 19, 2015
Bottle. Average beige head with moderate retention. Clear very dark brown colour (black appearance). Aroma is dried fruits (prune), chocolate and brown caramel. Taste has hop presence, floral, roasted malt, some fruitiness, liquorice hint and some diacetyl sign. Watery palate, medium body and medium carbonation. Quite a good porter.
