look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

APPEARANCE: Poured almost more of a dark brown than a black in color with an off-white head. The head, by the way, was pretty solid for a porter. Decent lacing on the sides of the glass, but not much on the front or back.

SMELL: Mocha Porter is certainly the right name for this brew if the smell has anything to do with it. Strong smell of coffee beans and some woodiness as well.

TASTE: The chocolate part of the Mocha was not really present in the aroma, but it certainly is in the taste. In fact, it pushes the coffee flavor out of the way to dominate early in the sip, but the coffee fights back towards the end to help provide a nice, bitter finish. The woodiness of the nose translates into a smoky taste throughout the sip. I should also note that this is the first time I’ve had this beer poured into a glass. I served it at my old job and if I drank it, I drank it straight out of the bottle. I have to say the flavor is certainly enhanced by the aroma, using some glassware for this beer makes a big difference and it is more full and robust than it is straight from the bottle.

MOUTHFEEL: Smooth, but with a touch of carbonation. It is a bit oily, but also dry and not mouthcoating in the least.

OVERALL: I am very happy I tried this beer in a pint glass rather than straight out of the bottle. It isn’t terribly exciting until you allow it to open up and let it let you take the aroma in. At that point it becomes a very strong, year-round standard for Rogue.

4.05/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a. Deep dark brown with a .5 finger head when poured into a pint glass. Lacing on the glass is thin.

s. Coffee and malt.

t. Excellent balance with coffee and malt. Not finding the chocolate
side of the mocha, but who cares - taste is a notch above above outstanding (on this scale).

m. A bit dry on the finish, but good hidden carbonation.

o. A porter that is a step above most coffee porters. I find some coffee porters to be overwhelming - the mocha toned it down nicely.
