UPDATED: MAR 12, 2005 bottle. How can a describe this one? This is a great beer but its missing a little something in some category to be on the top. Deep black color with reddish tint with a thin tan head that goes off quickly. Smells like malts and chocolate (subtle). Taste: rosted malt and bitterness (chocolate and hops) at the finish.
Cette biere est tres bien mais il lui manque un petit quelque chose pour etre encore meilleur. Noir profond avec des reflets rouges mais, le collet est tres mince et disparait rapidement. A l’odeur, cest le malt et le chocolat, mais c’est tres discret. Au gout, le grain griller bien sure, mais aussi l’amertume du houblon et du chocolat noire a la fin.

Pours dark brown with dark mahagony color. Frothy light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt. Flavor of caramel, light chocolate and slightly coffeeish. Robust. Smooth bitterness with light crisp finish. giarcsr (104) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Aroma is very roasty malty and a slight hint of chocolate. Flavor is again very roasty malty with a slight hint of chocolate. This is yet another solid beer by Rogue for the price. I would recommend this beer if your looking for a decent porter. jollyraider (252) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 6, 2005
Tasty porter with just a hint of coco; I wish it had more. Why the hell can’t Rogue just put an alcohol percentage on the bottle? How many people think in degrees Plato? brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Poured opaque. Dark brown to black with a hint of deep red. Aroma was chocolatey and slightly sweet. The flavor was dark chocolate all the way with a bit of charcole and piney hops at the finish. A bit one dimentional but very nice. The body was well balanced. Not much else to say. A good beer from Rogue, and my wife likes it which is a big plus!

An attractive deep brown with a dark brown foamy head. Mocha-Esque aroma with a big screaming grapefruit. Lightly smoked? Crisp and clean, and buttery at points. Deeply roasted malts. Very straight forward. Acidic nutty roasted finish. Padron4KM (810) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - DEC 31, 2004

Pours out a deep, dark brown with a reddish tint. Big fluffy tan head. Lots of sticky lace.
Coffee and bitter chocolate aroma.
Flavor is roasty, grapey, bitter coffee with a slight hoppy finish.
Black Color With Tan Head. Sweet Chocolate, Coffee Roasts…Thick, Smooth and Not Overpowering. Roasts Give a Bite… Well Balanced and Very Enjoyable..Wonderful Coffee Porter.

Bottled: Dark amber coloured with a reddish gleam. Fluffy brownish head. LAsting and huge. Malt, sweetness, loads of chocolate and light roast notes in the aroma. Flavour has a vague roastyness, sweetness, molasses, and some light coffee notes. Ends on a mild bitterness. Is dry and sweet as well. Quite pleasant beer.
