Poured into a pint glass. The body is black, there is a half inch light tan head.

The aroma is chocolatey with a bit of coffee. Some vanilla is hinted at, but that might just be because I associate those flavors with each other.

The taste is mildly sweet, with more chocolate coming through than vanilla. There is a bit of a hoppy finish. This is nicely balanced, not too chocolatey or coffee filled with a nice malt base.

The mouthfeel is creamy, with a light body.

This is pretty good. I've had it before and was disappointed, maybe I have a fresher bottle here.

Poured into a pint glass.

A- Slight coffee

A- Nearly black with slight reddish/garnet character at the edges.

F- Proper porter flavors with some nice chocolate notes. Minimal astrigency. The rogue house flavor is there gently reminding my of Dead Guy Ale. I'm sure this is from the PacMan Yeast.

M- Light and easily drinkable.

O- A really nice darker beer. I'm not a huge porter/stout drinker. This one works for me, probably because of the lack of astrigency. A perfect winter beer for someone how likes to have more than one at a sitting.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- 3 Very dark brown with a small head that fizzles away sort of quickly, could have had something to do with my pint glass.

Smell- 3 Pretty weak. Notes of chocolate and malts. Pretty average smell for a porter I'd say.

Taste- 4 MUCH better than the smell. Coffee, chocolate, malts. Lives up to the name "Mocha Porter" (may be a tiny bit too heavy of the coffee though).

MF- 3.5 Heavy body but a little too much carbonation for a porter.

Overall- 3.5 Not my favorite by rogue but still enjoyable for sure!!!
