A: Dark brown with caramel hues. Cream-colored half inch head. Wispy lacing.

S: Coffee beans seem to be of a lighter roast. very nuanced aromas of earthy and fruity beans with a kiss of smoke and sweet toffee. Caramel, toffee, and a pinch of cocoa from the malt. Orange zest from the hops.

T: Taste follows. Hard to tell where the malts end and the beans begin. Lightly smokey, fruity, toffee, caramel, cocoa. Orange zest hop flavors pick up toward the back. Coffee beans are front and center on the finish with light smoke, roast, red fruit, and toffee.

M: Body is on the lighter side of medium. Creamy and silky in texture. Carbonation scrubs briskly. Moderate astringency from hops and coffee.

O: A very complex and nuanced coffee porter. It favors the connoisseur of fine coffee who can really appreciate the intricacies of the beans used.

22oz bottle. The classic Rogue painted bottle but sold only at Whole Foods Markets. Label is similar to the dude on the Mocha Porter bottle, but with a different color scheme. Oh, and more ABVs inside.

Beer pours very brown in color, deep, almost black. No head. Aroma is like opening a bag of dark roast ground coffee. Very roasty and earthy. And the flavor solidly delivers what the nose promises. Very much a full bodied porter, mouthfeel is even a little bit heavy. Brewed coffee serves as both a flavor and bittering agent. Enjoyable, even through the black coffee aftertaste.

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours a very dark brown, appearing opaque black in the glass with a fine, thin light brown head with good retention and lacing. Nice coffee aroma with toasted malt and chocolate. Flavor is semi-sweet dark malt, light toast, good coffee, cocoa. Finishes with semi-sweet mocha, somewhat like a Frappocino. Medium bodied with hints of creaminess. A nice coffee porter with top notch coffee flavor. This is a laid back porter with the toasted malt elements subsumed by the coffee and chocolate. Not sure if the base porter would be exciting, but this is nicely blended and balanced. Leaves pleasant coffee with mild hop bitterness as an aftertaste.
