Almost black opaque color, small tan head. Coffee beans in the nose. Roasted, coffeeish, long roasted aftertaste. Nice balanced stout.
Bottle. Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a nice, dense tan head. Licorice, burnt, some smoke-sourness, chocolate, coffee and mocha in the aroma. Burnt, hops, coffee, mocha and chocolate in the flavor. Full body and a long, roasted finish with hops, chocolate and mocha. I find it maybe a bit too hoppy, I like my stout more on the chocolate- and coffee-side, but a very good beer. (070413) jtclockwork (17100) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 14, 2010

Super smooth roasty aroma. Even better taste. Super drinkability, very mellow. Goddam this is yum. Nice cocoa twist to the roast. Hops fairly subtle. Looked great too, obviously - dark and crowned with a large tight beige head. This beer is one of the pieces of evidence I’d use to support the claim that American brewers are brewing the best porters in the world currently. Fullers London Porter’s almost alone holding the flag.
A: Pours essentially black with a dense, creamy tan head. Nice sticky lacing to go with it.
S: Tons of roasted malts on the nose with a strong earthy hop aroma. Plenty of bitter dark chocolate and cocoa powder as well. Not much sweetness, maybe some burnt sugar.
T: A moderate level of bitterness with lots of earthy hop flavor to go with it. Cocoa powder and bitter, baker’s chocolate are definitely there. Quite a lot of roasted malt flavor as well.
M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation. Was expecting a bit more silky mouthfeel, though.
D: Like a lot of Rogue beers, this is good, but not amazing and not really worth the price they charge. Benzai (16552) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2012 Sampled at RBBSG. Pitch black color, small to medium light brown head. Smell malts, roastyness, oatmeal and slightly alcohol. Taste malts, roasted malts, coffee, moderately bitter. Medium body, medium to full carbonation. Dedollewaitor (16356) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2007
Bottle 75cl. Black with a fine brown head. Roasted malts - caramel, chocolate & coffee. High bitterness from hops. Soft & creamy carbonation/mouthfeel. Body is filling, could however be thicker/fatter. Good Rogue! MiP (15960) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2005
