Dark malty chocolate flavor with decent head. For a porter off the shelf this brew is one of the better ones in my opinion.

Pours black with a tan creamy lasting head. there is lacing. In the aroma I can definitly smell chocolate and coffee as I would expect, nevertheless the aroma is a little bit weak. Taste has accents from coffee. some espresso and some mocha. there is a faint taste of chocolate. also the taste is very creamy and a little bitter quite nice.

Pours dark, with very little head. Burnt chocolate aroma with hints of molasses. Well balanced burnt hoppy flavor with an even finish. Aftertaste fades gracefully.

My second Rouge installment. This one isnt bad, though hard to get over the ol Fullers London Porter.Ill agree with yayforbeer that everything is downhill after the Fullers. None the less, he did recommend I give Rouge another shot with this one. Oil dark colour with a mocha cake head. Nose is almost a chicken-boyoun flavour.*Who wants chicken and rice?!?!* Taste is definately different thank tha 1!!11!1(one)bittersweet dry malts imbedded with some decent roasted hoppygoodness. Cream mouthfeel apon a light swig. Chocolate and coffee hints, though not bangin present. highschool. An easier drinker.

JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2005
Bottle. Very dark brown colour with a nice tan head. Roasted malts and chocolate in the aroma. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate and bitter hops. Medium mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. A bit unrefined, but still pretty good.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Pours a beautiful dark brown to black with a nice firm tan head which laces well. Looks great. Aroma is hops and chocolate. Flavor is satisfyingly full and roasty with coffee. Creamy mouthfeel, but not thick or sweet. Dry and bitter on the finish. Excellent Porter with obvious attention to quality. I may have preferred a bit more sweetness, but its not really a complaint, just my style preference. Very well done by Rogue. $9.99 for a six at Broudys, Jacksonville FL.

Pours dark with brown, fast disapating head. First sip was very carbonated. Had rich distinct coffee flavor. Finish is bitter with a tiny hop presents at end.
