Quite an enjoyable porter. Way overpriced in my area, I’m afraid. I’m not sure why Rogue feels it can price its sixers at $10 in NC. donrajin (233) - Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Yet another fine beer from Rogue. Dark brown colour with a nice tan head. Malt is the predominate flavor with the chocolate with a hint of roast shining through. If you find a bad one either its very very old or you don’t know good beer. crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2005
I wish I could say this beer tasted good but I was really dissapointed, tasted like a really bitter stoudt. jon112981 (327) - Bristow, Virginia, USA - APR 28, 2005

thanks to fiulijn for giving this beer a second time (I broke it the first time ...) - black coloured, little brown tainted foam, roasted aroma of black chocolate, mocha and nuts, medium to full-bodied, tart and very bitter, slightly oily, long dry roasted coffeish finish - delicious !

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color beer with a nice foamy head with great retention. Aroma of roasted malt is dominating and seems to leave little place to the coffee aroma that I was expecting. Taste is dominated by bitterness and roasted malt and again I find little of the coffee/chocolate taste I was expecting. Overall, not bad but I’m a bit disappointed by this one.

Almost black in color with a thick off-white head. Aroma is dominated by malts and chocolate. Dark chocolate flavor with some hops. Good porter. WesBeerGuy (62) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - APR 23, 2005
Not much of a smell to speak of... Mostly alcohol with a hint of mocha. But wow is it beautiful. Pours thick dark brown with a massive bubbly coffee colored head. Chocolate porter taste is quite good, but the aftertaste is where it’s at. The coffee flavor really comes out, and sticks around for a long time. Not my favorite porter of all time, but probably top 10.
