Small Head that dissipates slowly. Dark Brown cannot see through. Bitterness on first taste then grows sweeter. There is a dark semisweet chocolate component that rings through after taste.

noelcb (271) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Very dark,nearly black, nice brown foamy head, lots of sticky lace. Aromas of coffee, toast, malt, a little ripe dark fruit and a bit of floral hops. Tastes weak, flavors of malt, coffee, chocolate, smoke and peat all compete for prominence in a murky mix. Not enough chocolate to cal it chocolately, as the name implies. Fairly bitter hop finish. For all those different malts, I expected a lusher, sweeter, toastier, more complex malty character. The malt flavor was kind of in the background, though, and more of a simple barely-roasted bitter malt. Maybe Im just used to porters being more on the sweet side. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and flat, but typical of many porters.

Juelze (1144) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2005
This beer poured a dark brown color with light colored head. Smells was of roast malt, milk and dark chocolate, and a slight coffee smell. Taste was much the same but it seemed a little watery and thin in the finish but then again it seems that is how most porters taste to me.

HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2005
Bottle (12oz). Poured fizzy dark ruby-brown (almost cola-like), with a good light brown creamy, fizzy, rocky head. Sweet dark roast malt aroma of fresh-ground coffee, cola, chocolate, anise, some hops and a bit of hickory-smoked bacon. Taste quite bitter, coffee, hops, chocolate, burnt malts, wood bark - starts creamy/chocolate bitter, finishes almost resiny coffee bitter. Mouthfeel quite full-bodied and creamy. My idea of a hairy-chested porter - another winner from Rogue.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2005
12oz - Aroma is nice. Chocolate malt and roasted coffee beans. Pours black with a slight red tint. Small off white head leaves great lacing. Flavor is sweet and roasty. Coffee and chocolate dominate with a slight hop finish. Creamy and sticky palate. A real nice drinking porter.

kfarrnd (113) - Oldsmar, Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2005
Bottle - Very Dark brown opaque color with a medium dark tan head. Aroma was primarily coffee with a bit of smoke. Palate was smooth and medium bodied. Flavor had less coffee than the aroma, mixed with the chocolate and smoke, but stronger coffee on the finish. I thoroughly enjoyed this porter and Im glad I bought a six pack.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Bomber: Light and watery all around, weakened nose of chocolate and milkier chocolate, bits of smoke linger as well. Flavor is very weak watered down coffee, lacks body.

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Different than expected. I was expecting a real sweet coffee/capichino. It was more of a true english style porter. Starts with a slight roast taste, then throws in a hint of sweetness. Very smooth from start to finish. Nothing like the Rogue Chochlate Stout that I was expecting. Impressed

NachlamSie (3355) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2005
bottle. Pours a deep, very dark brown with a dense tan head. I enjoyed the sweet smoky smell. The flavor is definitely of bittersweet mocha with a milder finish. A very nice light mouthfeel even with the fairly robust flavor. Great brew.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Pours black with a frothy, mostly receding tan head. Sweet aroma of heavy roast (coffee, dark chocolate). Taste is quite chocolatey, smokey, and sweet, without being cloying. A bit too much bitterness from the roast for my liking. Body is dense, rich, and carbonation is high. Finish is highly sweet, moderately bitter, and moderately acidic. Intense flavors. I would like to see if this would mellow with age.
