Shain (169) - ISRAEL - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle, 330ml. pours dark brown - black. Head is short pale beige. Nose is lovely, sweet dark malt, cherries, ripe fruit, caramel, slight hop scent, not much roasted scent. Mouth feel is watery with medium-thin body. Carbonation is soft bot notable. Tastes strongly bitter, mostly hop bitterness and slight roasted bitterness. Slightly sweet, very lightly acidic. Flavors of bitter hops, roasted malt, cherry, slight coffee-chocolate notes, some caramel. Nice, quite bitter, but not too much so, flavor is nice, but not very complex. Not highly roasted for a porter. Nice and strong overall.

Bottle, medium stable bubbly head, opaque black color, aroma of cola and dark bread, flavor of dark chocolate, charcoal and a hint of vanila. Medium mellow bitterness. Fair and highly drinkable.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JUN 4, 2002
Cascade hops are very strong and prominent throughout this one. Initial roastiness (stronger than many other porters Ive had) subsides into unbalanced cascade-y bitterness. Nice mouthfeel, but ultimately leaves me unimpressed.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 18, 2002
The name certainly let me know it was coming, but there is just too much coffee flavor in this. It is very nicely hopped and has some nice chocolate undertones. Its on the watery side and doesnt realy live up to the light cream finish that it promises. Overall a decent beer, but I doubt if I will be back for another... if I were a big coffee drinker I would probably have a different opinion.

Hoss (607) - Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2003
I found it thin and lacking those intangibles that make up really good porters. The slight bitter undertones did not smooth out as it warmed. Not bad but certainly not great

winterlager (101) - Orchard Park, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2003
Has a nice roasted coffee aroma mixed with a sweet chocolate. Very nice espresso taste and smoothness. Perfect blend of bitter and sweet.

TheBeerGod (6066) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2003
Thick brackish color with shades of maroon around the edges. Small, dissipating tan head. Nose is bitter and full of hops and coffee. Bitter tongue with an oily mouthfeel. Seems a little thinner than was expected. Still good though.

i made the mistake of tasting this beside the much creamier, more "mocha" anchor porter, and thus the rogue was kinda like 'ethel" next to lucille ball. sturdy and reliable, but with not much pizazz. it pours auspisciously, tho, as dark as a blacksmith's burnt leather apron; a coconut husk brown head is given to sullen moments, withdrawing to brood at the edge of the glass. the aroma describes burlap coffee sacks and hershey candy--not the candy itself, just the chocolate-tinged wrapper. there's a small roasty aspect to the flavor along with the substansial but papery dry hops. snappy carbonation opens the advance for bitters in form of citrus rind (lime?), dark chocolate with nudging reminders of praline. barely. but hey, it's a rogue: it's good. just don't embarrass it by opening an anchor at the same time.
