fiulijn (20063) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2005

Black color; generous creamy head. The aroma is very nice, fresh and interesting, despite the age of the bottle, with black olives and chocolate, light vanilla; hops. The body is lean, there is a good chocolate flavor, with a bit too much roasted malt for my taste; in the final there are some roasted nuts too, quite dry final, almost harsh burnt character. Good enough.

Brown color. Some roasted malt aroma, with some hidden hops. Quite good Stout, with a one dimensional roasted malt character.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 5, 2005
Pours black, nearly opaque. Medium brown head sits on top. Aroma is of roasted malt and even a little bit of smoke. Flavor is quite robust. Roasted malt first and foremost, followed by slight caramel and slight coffee. Full bodied. Dry in character with significant acidity. Not bad.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 5, 2005
Possibly a bit out of style. minor malt acidity that is more akin to a stout. Mildly lactic and astringent up front with some mocha in the nose. Rich and bittersweet on the palate with a lactic acidity and mild astringency on the finish.

cathcacr (647) - Oregon, USA - APR 2, 2005
A thicker and richer porter than the "original" style. Coffee character no stranger here, but still pretty moderate. No head here. Im a little split on this one. Sometimes theres a lot there, sometimes not. I could rate it around 4.1 depending on one sip and around 3.5 depending on the next. I split the difference.

ABUSEDGOAT (2683) - California, USA - APR 2, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2007 Black pour, moderate head, decent lacing and retention. Aroma is cheaper coffee, roast, chocolate, caramel, some hop notes. Body is relatively light but not too light. A fairly bitter porter but still enjoyable. Very solid.

swirl (267) - collingswood, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Deep black with a full tan head. Coffee aromas and nice balanced mocha taste. Crisp and inviting another good beer from Rogue.

JDUB (178) - Venice Beach, California, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Nice light tan head with pretty creamy and lasting lasting bubbles. good coffee and chocolate flavor. Rogue is great.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Pours dark brown with a creamy white head. The arona was weak with caramel, mocha and coffee. The mocha was the dominant factor. The taste was watery but the mocha and caramel were present The Mocha got a lliittle stronger towards the finish making this beer pretty descent but nothing special. This is not a Porter I would mgo out of my way to have again.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Deep brown to black, littlle to no head. Dark chocolate/ sourness in the aroma. Smooth mouthfeel with a nice nutty, roasty finish. The hops were a bit bitter in the finish as the beer came to temperature. Good, not great overall.

ericmc83 (207) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 20, 2005
UPDATED: APR 25, 2005 bottle - 3/20/05 - The pour is pitch black, large brown head. I smell chocolate and coffee that carries over into the taste. Flavor is of deep, dark coffee/chocolate. Mostly coffee...roasted barley (?)...that lasts through to the finish with a little bitterness. Very good. I like this porter a lot.
