Enjoyed on tap at Chumley's in Lafayette.
The pour resulted in a deep brown body capped off bye a small creamy tan head. Smell is very malty, notes of coffee and chocolate are present as well. First taste alludes to some bitter chocolate along with a subtle smokiness. Mouthfeel is a little thin though. I think I would enjoy this more if it had the body of their Chocolate stout. Overall it's a decent offering from Rogue.

Appearance: It's dark brown when held to the light, nearly black when it's not. Modest, creamy tan one finger head sat on top. Retention was short and lacing was light.

Smell: Sweet dark chocolate and espresso aromas are the main features. Sweet toffee malts and molasses are readily apparent. It's very sweet smelling.

Taste: Tastes every bit as good as it smells. Initially it has a bit of a bitter espresso taste, but it's mixed with a sweet dark chocolate flavor. Toffee malts and molasses really add to the mix. This is a very good porter.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: It's light bodied, extremely well carbonated, and the abv is absolutely perfect. Overall, this is a fine beer. I could take two bombers pretty easily. It's very good. You must try it.

Paid $1.50 for a single.

A good dark, black brew. Nice brown lacing. Heavy chocolate taste. A bit nutty. Not much coffee despite the title. Not too syrupy either. Bitter hops in the background. Decent alcohol bite to it. This is a solid above average porter. I would like to try on tap, but probably won't buy again - there's too much out there!

Pours to a nice thick beige head and good lacing. Dark brown color. Aroma is roasty, chocolate and slightly espresso-like. Flavor is rich with dark chocolate, caramel malt, coffee and balancing bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium heavy and good CO2. Overall a pleasant drinking experience.

Very dark in appearance the ruby highlighted Porter is lost to this blacker than night addition. The head was creamy but not particularly stout.

Lots of dry chocolate malt hits the nose with hints of coffee and roasted malt. The taste follows suit with dry chocolate leading the way and roasted coffee holding after the taste. Velvety smooth on the tongue and dry in the mouth, the feel is much like the taste in its composition.

Overall, this is really tasty and a great experience but I missed the Mocha portion that is held in the name. No worries, as the flavorful stout-like presence is more than enough to get you through.
