Mocha Porter pours just about opaque... just about. I had to look three times for the filament of the torch before I at last found it dimly making its way through the blackness of onyx red. Head is massive, brown, and with small dense bubbles that are leaving a tapestry of foam rather than mere foam lace down the sides of my glass.

The nose of dry and fresh fruit and nut, that can be found in a most pleasant way. pecan, spicy pear, with dried fig, an analogy would be as if one where passing by a candy factory.

It is as I have feared... rather than I being the consumer of the fluid, this fluid is consuming me. I am over taken by the intensity, the shear power of all the flavors. Espresso, burnt malt, and a fruity citrus, followed by bitter chocolate. After glow from the alcohol is very apparent along with a drying from the pleasant bitter hops.

Rogue Mocha Porter is a Brew to seek out... but please use caution, as this Brew will try to seduce you! (969 characters)

pours out dark as night and a nice looking tan head develops which sticks around to the end of the glass. i worked up the sediment left at the bottom of the bottle and added that to my glass also. smell is a delight of roasted coffee, chocolate, and hops. the first thing i thought of after smelling it and taking the first few sips was how similar it is to summit great northern porter of st. paul mn. but after having a few more sips i'd say this is a bit more complex and a just a bit smoother. taste is a combo of bittersweet chocolate and hops with some vague coffee notes that linger on the palate quite a long time after consuming. bitter beer face never made me smile so big! (689 characters)

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.

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!

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. (801 characters)
