This is a very nice, classic American porter. Lots of great chocolate and roasted malt in the nose, with hints of coffee. With each sip a delicious roasted malt and chocolate flavor rolls through the mouth and ends with a pleasant crisp bitterness that lingers on the tongue. Can't say it's the best porter I've ever had, but there's certainly little to complain about. Very solid beer, very flavorful, and very drinkable at 5.0% abv.

I have had most of Rogues other offerings and and have enjoyed every one of them, so I am excited to have the Mocha Porter.
Appearance- Pours a mildy hazy dark brown with a light tan, 1 finger head... Dissipates quickly
Smell- Possibly my favorite part of this beer. Dark roasted malts with coffee and chocolate present. Very arousing scents
Taste- Chocolatey malts and roasted barley make themselves extremely apparent. The mocha is present as well. Very tasty beer
Mouthfeel- Light-medium body, appropriate amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is definitely one of my favorite Rogues, if not one of my favorite porters. A well-executed example of the style

12oz. bottle poured into a straight sided pint glass
A- dark, dark brown. No light makes it through this brew. Big, fluffy tan head, and very sticky lacing down the glass. I don't see how a porter could look better.
S- Dark, sweet malt, heavy on the coffee aroma.
T-Roasty, sweet malts, with a coffee finish. Hints of chocolate, but you have to search for them. A tad bitter on the end.
M- Deceptively medium bodied (you'd think it's heavier from the looks of it) Carbonation on the lighter side of medium.
O- A good example of an American porter. I could use a bit more chocolate notes, and a tad less bitterness on the finish, but I'm honestly nit picking. Tasty.

Appearance is very dark brown, with a creamy, tan head and very sticky lacing.
Nose is sweet malt, light mocha aroma, and mild sourness.
Taste is predominately sweet malt. The mocha is mostly in the aftertaste. There is also some dark fruit, and biscuit throughout.
Mouthfeel is crisp. Smooth and coating, but very clean. Excellent drinkability.
Overall, it is straightforward; not exceptionally memorable. But the drinkability is superior. If I saw it on-tap somewhere, I would likely order it.

A- Very dark black with a creamy light brown head. The head stayed put most of the way through leaving behind moderate lacing.
S- Mild roasted aroma with hints of coffee and a slight sweetness.
T- High presence of dark malt and coffee. It was dry upfront followed by a light sweetness and a lasting bitterness.
M- Heavy bodied with low carbonation. This was a pretty thick brew for a porter.
D- I could probably drink two of these before becoming tired.
Overall a decent porter. It was very thick, but I liked how this beer transitioned from dry to bittersweet.
