Pours a dark brown with a moderately creamy tan head that collapses unevenly. Opaque. Aroam is roasty, almost (but not quite) smoky, slightly sweet, like semi-sweet to bitter dark chocolate. Smells heavy! Flavor begins coffee-malty, the coffee-style bitterness really shows through. Finishes with a solid bite of hops, moreso than many porters I've had. Mouthfeel is moderate, maybe slightly thin, with decent creaminess. Drikability is very good in the right occassion (a cool evening).

The first few sips were amazing - lots of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. But as the beer started to warm up, these flavors became less prominent. Maybe it's because my palate became overwhelmed or the flavor just changes as it warms up. Anyways, still very tasty.

Thanks to Moniker for sending one bottle my way.

A: The beer is light dark color with some brownish/redish color on the edge. The head is brown but disappear rapidly.
S: Roasted malts with some notes of chocolate. Some hints of licorice.
T: Espresso taste like. The bitterness is one of the espresso types with some dark chocolate.
M: Very nice in the mouth, the taste lingers in the mouth.
D: So easy to drink.

Overall, an excellent Porter. Refreshing and tasty at the same time.

Yet another nice offering from Rogue. Chocolate brown in appearance with a modest head that dissaptes as you go. The aroma is mild with nuts and perhaps a hint of bitter chocolate but somewhat difficult to detect. The taste is nutty with some bitterness. Mouthfeel is malty with a mild bitter bite in the finish. Overall an enjoyable beer and perhaps a session brew for some.

A – Pours out very dark brown, almost black. The head isn't anything special at about an inch.

S – Heavy coffee (as you would expect) with a hint of light vanilla on the edges.

T – On the first sip you'll get a strong, coffee flavor - like a well roasted coffee brew. On the back end you get some of the chocolate and vanilla notes, but you have to actually look for them.

M - Not overwhelming on the tongue, nice carbonation, and a fair amount of body

O – This is a tasty coffee porter that delivers without complications. It's drinkable, but yet has enough complexity to keep you interested. The ABV is understandable, and you'll easily be able to drink a few of these without getting overwhelmed.

A: Dark amber with moderate carbonation and a light brown head that dissipates somewhat quickly into a foamy lace.

N: Fresh coffee and dark chocolate. It lives up to its name.

T: Delicious, creamy and smooth, with strong chocolate overtones. One of the best porters around.

M: Not as thick as you'd expect, and more carbonated than your average stout. Rogue has definitely captured the essence of a porter with this brew.

D: A versatile beer. You could savor this in a snifter, or drink it straight from the bottle with a group of friends; it's great either way.
