Poured a dark chocoalte brown with a large tan head. Smells of dark malts, choclate, and perhaps a little cherry?

Bursting with coffee/chocolate flavor from the moment it enters your mouth. Has a nice bitter peak to it and gently fades away. Mouthfeel is medium/thick as a good porter should be. Definitely not stout thick.

A very nice interpretation of a porter from a very good brewery. I look forward to checking out the rest of their lineup.

Pours a dark brown almost black colour into the glass. The head is cream colour but not big. It has a nice smell of chocolate. The taste is all about chocolate and licorice with a nice bitter aftertaste. This is a nice beer that i found in a small pub for students. How it got there I don't know, but i'm glad i found it.

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!
