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.

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.

Poured into a standard pint. Deep, deep brown with a tinge of caramel-red. Khaki head, short but held. Aroma is immediately of a medium roast coffee with some vanilla backing, maybe some b=very light chocolate notes. Taste is a fairly carbon copy of eh aroma: coffee up front, vanilla across the palate, with a slightly sweet caramel finish. Not much alcohol in the back. If a coffee profile is what is desired, this will deliver. The traditional porter flavors are of course over shadowed by the coffee, but this does state right on the bottle that it is a coffee porter. And that it is. Personally, I drink a lot of coffee, so I definitely enjoyed this.

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.

A: Pours a hazy just shy of opaque mahogany in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation slowly rising along the edges of the glass and moderate amounts of reddish brown highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy dark tan head that slowly reduces to a very thick film covering the entire surface of the beer evenly with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of a lightly roasted coffee bean with some light aromas of toasted and caramel malts. Hints of cocoa.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of toasted and caramel malts with a hint of toffee sweetness and just the slightest note of roasted malts. That is followed by moderate to slightly stronger than moderate flavors lightly roasted coffee that gives a moderate amount of bitterness to the beer which lingers for quite a while.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Kind of on the lighter side for a porter, not a rich with the roasted malt flavors aromas but that is somewhat made up for by the inclusion of the coffee. Very enjoyable and easy to drink though it does carry quite a bit of coffee-like bitterness.
