A: Pours a dark brown with a mocha colored firm head that was pretty persistent.

S: dark roastedness, fresh chocolate, nuttiness and some pine hopping.

T: For flavor there was dark roasted coffee, and sweet chocolate. The flavor was nicely balanced between the coffee and chocolate. The roasted nature was very smooth, dry and robust with some dark mocha beans.

M: creamy and lightly carbonated with a smooth texture and slickness on the tongue.

D: Hearty porter with a very good drinkability and enjoyment.

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.
