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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours black, nearly opaque with a small tan head. Smells of espresso, chocolate, roasted malt, and non distinct hops. Tastes of coffee, light chocolate, and roasted malt. Finishes moderately dry with a medium body for style. Decent beer, not my favorite of it’s style.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
W aromacie oprócz dość przewidywalnej mlecznej czekolady z lekkimi nutami czekolady truflowej występuje wyraźna oliwa, a nawet suszony pomidor. Dziwne, ale bardzo przyjemne! W smaku już bardziej klasycznie, co nie znaczy, że gorzej: kremowa konsystencja, mleczna czekolada, raczej wytrawne, lekkie i pijalne.

Bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours dark with nice roasted aroma. Very subtle coffee coming through, if at all, but bears a nice roasted porter character. Decent.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark with a lot of head, arima is subtle at first, then a coffee like note appears. Taste is very carbonated, a sour sensation that evolves in to a hoppy, slightly yeasty aftertaste follows and stays with you.
