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 I’m glad I bought a six pack.

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 (3479) - 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.

Nothing really impressed me here. Dark in the glass with a small tan head. Aroma is light. Flavor is that of heavy roasted malt.
Body was watery. I left half of the bottle on the table and walked away sadly. hurleymanvw (101) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2005
Nice dark color and decent head. Very good balance of malt and hop but not over powering. Good finish a very nice drinking beer. SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Bomber. Dark brown w/ light tan head. Nice lacing. Nose is smokey and chocolatey. Thin body w/ water, coffee, chocolate. 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.
