Dark brown, almost black. Thich, creamy light brown head. Crackers, mocha, cookies and dark chocolate in aroma. Coffee, cookies and dark chocolate with a small hint of mocha. Quite short bitter aftertaste from black chocolate.

Deep, deep color. Looks great at the pour. Nice creaminess up top. I dont taste any of the mocha elements, just heavily roasted malt and hops. Too much hops. Hoppy porters may be in style, but the bitterness that they bring to the table offset the creaminess that I like in these types of ale.

(650ml bottle) Pours almost completely black with quite a bit of head that leaves much lacing. All I smell is fruit and maybe alcohol. (weird) Coffee, chocolate, and raisins rule the flavor. Very creamy mouthfeel and finish. I like this one but could have done without the hops.

Incredibly delicious milk chocolate nose. Pours a dark, cola brown with a tannish head. Flavor is all malt, milk chocolate and coffee. Finishes crisply and mellows out quickly to a soft roll around the back of mouth. Very impressive. Would definitely buy again.

Ok aroma, lots of malts, deep brown with a thin tan head that faded right away. Flavor was not what I was expecting from something called Mocha Porter...I didnt really get alot of the mocha effect. Overall, the taste was pleasurable, but nothing outstanding. The aftertaste was a little too hoppy for what i like in my porters. This was my first Rogue, and I am hoping they improve as I get a few more varieties.

Cola-brown pour with beige head. Coffee flavor came out better than any other coffee-flavored beer Ive had (sorry, brocker, I liked it!) Aroma wasnt much to speak of, a muted roasty bitter choc. Coffee was mellow guatemalan without the sanka decaf nose that most brews wield as "coffee." Creamy body and bright finish. Well done.

brocker (99) - Salina, Utah, USA - FEB 14, 2005
Easily one of the worst porters I have ever had. Looks great off the pour. Deep, dark brown. Fat tan head. Smells very sour, with a hint of chocolate and hops. Tastes equally as sour as it smells, which is awful. Finishes with a tiny hop bite. Seems kind of flat. Tastes like a bad batch of homebrew.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2006 This is a great porter. Vanilla bean, nutty, creamy aromas, a nice dark tan head. Chocolate/Coffee flavors bombard the taste buds, and the effervescent body balances it perfectly. Re-Rate...this beer seems to vary quite a bit from different batches (or maybe its just me). The last time I had this, I thought it was Gods gift to porters...this time, it just seems like a decent porter. Still very good, but not the show-stopper I had last time.

A vanilla cream aroma and a iced cappuccino nose. When held against a light it looks to be a plum skin purple and a little bit of violet purple. What a beauty of a beer and the head holds up too. Quite a strong flavor of coffee bean. Good stuff and maybe a top ten porter on my list. This is the first time in San Diego i found Rogues porter, i feel so lucky tonight.

I am looking for some salvation. after choking down a schaefer and than a Alex Keith’s IPA (fridge cleaning) I need something half way decent to take that nasty taste of keith out of my mouth. It’s not at cellar temp, but fridge temp will have to do because I can’t wait any longer. looks encouraging, opaque black with a tannish head. tastes of a nice smooth coffee definately what the doctor ordered to make me forget the low points of the evening. kind of has a smokey flavor too. Good beer, thank goodness for rogue
