3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Single bottle. Poured as dark as you’d expect, with a thin tan head that dissipated quickly but not quite entirely, hanging around to leave a few spots of suds on the glass. Noted a bit of sweet, malty aroma. Feels surprisingly thin and light in the mouth. Bitter but not hoppy, with chocolate as the dominant taste, followed by toasted nuts. Good but kind of ordinary, though perhaps my expectations for this were unrealistically high. Tastes almost burnt, honestly. I can think of a dozen porters off the top of my head I prefer, but that’s not to say Rogue Mocha Porter isn’t good or worth trying. Personally, I’m kind of glad I only bought one bottle in a mixed six pack.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Uba ja Humal in Tallinn (€ 3.90). BB 08.2016. 5.3%. Pours medium dark brown with a thick beige head that retains and laces nicely. The aroma is that of roasted malts and bitter chocolate, hints of coffee and cake. It’s quite interesting, not among the most usual Porter aromas. Tastes quite differently, very roasty with a lot of coffee and/or really dark chocolate bitterness... Possibly the most ’chocolate bitter’ Porter I’ve had. Pretty thin mouthfeel, carbonation thin as well, but at least with a bit of activity. Nice roasty dryness. A good easy drinker, and above average interesting brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Uit de fles geschonken. Mooi zwart bier. Aroma van geroosterde mout en licht metalig. Smaak van geroosterde mout, drop en wat koffie. Deze laatste had ik gezien de naam meer verwacht. Maar de dropsmaak (salmiak) is prettig. Lijkt redelijk op de bekende Irish Stout.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light brown, tall, compact and staying head.
Light body, thin texture, aggressive flavors, flabby mouthfeel, low acidity, heat and moderate carbonation, short palate leaving an arid and watery aftertaste.
Very bitter and dry, almost sour acidity.
Overwhelming roast flavors, coffee,
Reminiscent of an Irish dry stout.
