tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - AUG 9, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a very attractive head that eventually cascades away. Some mocha is detectable in the nose. Smooth palate with only light carbonation. Flavor reminds me of chocolate covered espresso beans, but not as sweet. Also some hops, especially in the finish.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Poured black with a reddish tint around the edges. Beer had light wisps of caramel colored head. Aroma and flavor were similar to a weak imperial stout... similar roastiness and a good western hoppy presence. Aroma picked up a lot of chocolate, some espresso, and grapefruit... very pleasant and well-balanced. Flavor picked up all of the aroma, but also just a hint of raspberries. Finish had some hoppy bitterness along with the mocha. Very well done!

barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2005
12 oz. bottle. a rather unimpressive porter. black with a tan head that quickly fades to a tiny ring around the rim of the snifter glass. rosted malt flavors and some hop bitterness on the tail. nothing special here folks, next.

rederic (3307) - montral, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2005
Opaque dark color, with a shy tan-colored head, fruity, sweet chocolate note, expresso coffee and mocha accent, roasted malt in the nose, follows through on a medium-bodied palate with roasted malt, roasted coffee beans, , leading to a dark coffee bitterness on the finish.

3daddict (139) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Deep brown pour with a generous head. Toasted malt and mocha aroma as promised. Unexpectedly light feel in the palate bouyed by the carbonation. Dark malt and coffee/cocoa tones throughout taste and nice simmering hop finish. Great porter on the lighter end of the scale. And thanks to the beer gods for allowing Rogue distribution in my area.

RichardGretton (4713) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2005
Bottled. Very dark beer with a strong head but little retention. The aroma is heavy on the dryness and the flavour is very dry and long lasting. Overall a very dry well hopped beer.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 30, 2005
Pours dark brown with beige head. A little chocolate in aroma. A little coffee in flavor. But, overall not enough of either to get me excited. Could use a little more of chocolate/coffee in both aroma and flavor. Slightly thin on the palate.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JUL 30, 2005
Bottle. This was a bit of a disapointment, I expected a "mocha" experience but it seemed too bitter and not the flavor profile that would characterize mocha. So, not a bad porter at all, perhaps a bit more stout-like though.

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 27, 2005
Dark chocolate and coffee aroma. Pours a deep dark brown and makes a fluffy light brown head. Mocha latte flavor is subdued by strong bittering. Medium/light on the palate. A decent porter.
