Sampled from a 12oz bottle. A little to cold at first, as with most porters, stouts, etc much better server at 60 degrees plus, otherwise both the smells and tastes are a bit muted. But when this baby warms up, look out.

Poured a pitch black, can you say oil, black gold, Texas Tea, midnight. The used oil out of your car isn't this black. The pour creates an inch thick beige head that fades fairly quickly to leave a mountain range of lacing and a quick swirl recreates a small canopy head.

The nose of malt, cocoa, and coffee. Fresh roasted coffee beans anyone? You can smell this aroma train coming for miles.

Taste of coffe, semi-sweet chocolate, and roasted malt. Wonderful and complex. This is coffee and chocolate and wow. Truly magnificent. Rouge does it again, and again, and again.

Black with ruby highlights with a nice solid brown colored head, nice carbonation, and some lace. Aromas of "Chocolate covered hops". Big chocolate and espresso-like flavors with a nice hop balance; nicely bittersweet. Medium bodied and smooth which is not surprising considering the bold flavors.

Very nicely balanced bitterweet chocolate, espresso, and hop flavors - Excellent!

Per bottle:
13P. 73 AA. 54.51 IBU. 77 L.
Northwest Harrington and Klages; 135-165, 95-115, and 70-80 Crystal; Beeston Chocolate, Black, Munich and Carastan malts. Centennial and Perle hops.

($3.99 / 22 oz.)

Rouge Mocha Porter has a very thick, beige head, a dark brown appearance, with red highlights, and impressive, heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of dark-roasted malt and chocolate powder. Flavor is of sweet, dark bread crust, cocoa powder, dark-roast coffee, astringent bitterness, and even a touch of sourness. Mouthfeel is on the lower side of medium, and Rogue Mocha Porter finishes semi-dry, refreshing on this hot day, somewhat rich, and drinkable. It’s a seriously wonderful beer, and I recommend it in the strongest terms.

Mocha Porter indeed! Lovely chocolate tones...I love to swirl the thick sediment at the bottom & dump it into the glass...like viscuous mud!

Cask conditioned at Sharp Edge Beer Emporium
A: Pours a brown so dark it's almost black. Opaque. Nice khaki~tan head with nice lacing.
S: Dark roasted malt aromas with a heady whiff of a strong bitter coffee smell. Sweet dark molasses. Wow.
T: Smooth malts perfectly balanced by a touch of hops and a strong coffee taste with just a hint of dark chocolate. Nicely lingering bitter aftertaste.
M: So smooth it should be a crime. Smooth and creamy with a heavenly mouthcoating feel. Alcohol is just wonderfully warming.
D&N: Cask conditioned beers are like heaven in a glass. This beer had it all, great smells, great flavors, unbelievable mouthfeel. Heaven in a glass.
