I probably shouldnt have had this for lunch but it seemed a bit much for me at the time. It was a bit strong for me at the time, though Ill try it again if I see it.

Wheres the mocha? It could be more pronounced. I dont really care for this porter as I prefer several others over this. Its heavy on the bitterness. Coffee notes.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2004
Dark with a thick frothy head. Aroma is coffee and grapefruit. Taste is moderately coffee and bitter with bitter middle and a bitter aftertaste. Did I say it was bitter? I am generally a big fan of Rogue but this should be called bitter (or espresso)porter rather than mocha porter. Not a bad beer, just lacking balance.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2004
On tap at the portland tap house. Pours black with a off-white head that leaves some good lacing. Not quite as strong of an aroma as I remember, faint chocolate and coffee and slightly roasty. Taste is very smooth but feels a bit thin. The chocolate comes through nicely and the coffee apears more in the aftertaste with a good roasty end. Good bitterness at the end to balance it out a bit.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 25, 2004
Black with a medium tan head. Aroma is hoppy and roasty. Doesnt have the strong chocolate taste found in many porters. The finish on this beer is very bitter and hoppy. Malty with a creamy mouthful. Instead of letting the flavors develop at the end the bitter ending of the beer quickly hits the reset button.

2ndstage (4) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2004 does not count
Bottle in Amarillo, Smooth porter a little light on the expected chocolate tones you would expect. Fairly mellow mouthfeel maybe thinner than I would like in a porter. Nice dark brown appearance with long lasting tan head.

Pailhead (6539) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 2, 2004
Bottle: Aroma obviously has coffee and chocolate but is rather hoppy to go along with it. That being said, the aroma is not as strong as I expect. Pours a muddy brown from the bottle but when it settles into the glass it's very dark brown, almost black, with a nice tan head with fair retention. Decent lacing. Flavor is coffee, slight dark chocolate, and grapefruit is noticeable. Bitter coffee and grapefruit finish with a moderate coffee aftertaste. I dont pick up the mocha all that much. Its there, but barely noticeable. Mouthfeel is a little thin. As I drink, the chocolate flavor becomes more noticeable. Nothing special, better porters out there.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2004
Sweet, perfumey, chocolate, mocha nose. Opaque brown-black with thin, dense, tan head. Roasty, bitter coffee-grounds flavour with very little chocolate to be found. Lightly vinous and some mild fruitiness. Medium body. Strong, lasting, chalky bitterness. Bottle sampled with CapFlu and Lubiere. Thanks, beerhugger. Yay, leftovers!
