From notes. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Mocha Porter pours a dark molasses brown color with a medium sized fluffy tan colored cap. A bit of nice lace dots the side of the glass.
The aroma is as expected - milk chocolate, roast coffee, with some roasted malt presence as well.
Each sip is smooth and consistent. The malt presence brings forth roasted malt, milk and dark chocolate, and espresso. The flavor turns slowly bitter, and there are some dry coffee grounds and smokey notes toward the end. The finish has another bit of chocolate and is mostly bitter.
For a porter with this low of an ABV, the body is actually a little bit fuller than I would have expected. The carbonation is balanced between creamy and smooth, and there is a dryness to the texture that prevents this from getting too sweet or sticky.
Overall I generally find Rogue’s offerings to be nice but not to push any boundaries, and this fits that bill precisely.
