herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - DEC 25, 2004
Dark brown color with a thick tan head. A little light in the roasted flavors with a creamy body. Sweetness hits near the middle and reminds of chocolate milk till the finish.

davidCC (130) - New York, USA - DEC 21, 2004
12oz bottle. Poured dark brown/black color to be expected from a porter. Medium amount of lasting dark tan head. Sweet mocha flavor that is no too overwhelming. This is good, but it could be better.

waveman352 (178) - Saratoga Springs, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2004
bottle. Poured to a small brown head and dark brown color. Slightly bitter smell and taste with malts present in the nose and taste as well. Heavy bodied sweet smoky malt aftertaste. A solid beer but i perfere others made by the Rogue company over this one.

shrubber85 (11083) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2005 Bottle. Clove, raisin malt aroma. Dark brown almost black color - little head. Strong flowery hops flavor up front - chocolate malt flavor - kind of goes all over the place - sweet, sour, tart, bitter.

Megan (101) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 19, 2004
Looks like a glass of Coke. Nice head with brown coloring. Chocolaty aroma, very fizzy looking. Huge mocha taste, very pleasant after taste. Great beer.

GuilTTy (733) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 17, 2004
dark to medium dark brown pour with a very lively and thick beige head and good lacing. Strong nose of malt and chocolate but not as chocolately as I expected. Rich flavor of chocolate, toffey, rasted malt and just a touch of bitterness in the aftertaste. A sweet porter but not overly so. Only drawback for me was that the chocolate and coffee flavors seemed a little "forced". Overall, a really nice porter that was definately worth the wait.

Odeed (1803) - Bakersfield, California, USA - DEC 12, 2004
i have not seen this brew in ages so it was nice to come up on it in a "winter pack" from cost plus.this porter dumped into my pint glass with a body that appeared black,but was more on the amber side when held up to light.it also foamed up a good looking creamy root beer style head that stuck round after the pour for some time.i got some mocha,malts,and a bit of metal in the smell.the first sip gave off some bitter hops,malts,and then came the mocha that actually stuck around for quite some time after.this is a very nice,full bodied porter.

Very dark opaque brown. Sweet chocolatey and caramel aroma with no hops. Elegant balance of chocolate and coffee sweet flavour with hops bitterness. Full bodied with a smooth finish.
