"Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow."

--Swedish proverb

Polished pumpernickel with somewhat generous edges of cherry and tangerine. In other words, not a black hole... no sin in an Imperial porter. More than half the pint glass is currently filled with carmal nougat colored foam that has a moonscape surface and is beginning to lay down streamers of sudsy lace.

The nose features the usual elements of dark caramel, dark chocolate and coffee beans. Hops are having their say as well, which suggests good things to come on the palate. So far, Double Mocha Porter is not appreciably better than Single Mocha Porter.

Tasty beer... which is no surprise when it says Rogue on the bottle. Probably not worth $10.99, but that's another discussion for another time. Oddly enough, this brew doesn't taste, feel or drink Imperial. That could be either a positive or a negative, depending on your preferences and your point of view.

Malt flavor leads the way, as it should, while hop flavor rushes in at the end to tighten the finish and ready the palate for the next mouthful. Specific flavors include toasted brown bread, dark chocolate shavings, flecks of roasted coffee bean, and a tea leaf bitterness that is gaining confidence as the middle of the bottle approaches.

Excellent job with respect to burying the alcohol. The mouthfeel, while not massive, is big enough and silky smooth enough to be considered good. It also aids (ease of) drinkability, which is beginning to catch up to me. Time to slow down a little.

Double Mocha Porter is yet another well-crafted Rogue beer that borders on impulsively drinkable. Having said that, it isn't head-and-shoulders better than its more available and less expensive smaller brother. Bottom line: if you're a fan of this brewery, you'll be a fan of this beer.
