4/5 rDev +3.4%
A - A very dark brown pour with a glorious 2 finger head on a medium pour. The head is a beige color and dissipates at a moderate rate. has a moderate lacing.
S - The smell is that of coffee and chocolate and a hint of alcohol.
T - first is the expected coffee taste followed by a mixture of roasted coffee and some chocolate and a minimal amount of wood flavoring. this is a slightly bitter beer leaving a more coffee than chocolate after taste. Thoroughly enjoyable
M - thinner than expected but medium bodied and medium crispness to it.
O - I enjoyed this beer probaly not up for more than one of these at a time as it is rather strong in its flavoring. I think of this beer as more than adequate but not quite exceptional.

3.95/5 rDev +2.1%
12oz bottle poured into a snifter.
A: Black in color with the slightest amount of light coming through at the edges. Half finger light tan head with decent retention and nice lacing.
S: Roasted coffee and semi sweet chocolate. Not a huge aroma but nice.
T: Roastiness upfront. Followed my a decent blend of chocolate and coffee. Very light coffee bitterness. Roasted notes come back a tad in the finish.
M: Light bodied. Not very creamy. Medium high carbonation.
O: A good porter. Not up with the best of them but still good.

4/5 rDev +3.4%
A: pours a dark brown, a little bit of murkiness, thin color of brown head, minimal retention
S: nose is a deep roasted malt with plenty of coffee present, chocolate comes in the middle, roasted barley balances really well with the adjunct ingredients
T: the taste is malt forward in the form of roasted barley and chocolate malt, mocha qualities blend well with the base malts. The end result is very robust and flavorful.
MF: light body, medium carbonation
O: tasty, well balanced and easy drinking. Not a big fan of everything Rogue does, but this one is nice.
