4.68/5 rDev +20.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
APPEARANCE: Dark as pitch with a dark tan head. A thick, sudsy mocha head with good lacing.
SMELL: A combination of smokey caramel and coffee along with a touch of chocolate. It's a very rich smelling beer with a strong nose.
TASTE: Malt and coffee leads the way with a hoppy finish. This is a very roasty beer that is not for the faint of heart. The smokiness of this porter lingers in the mouth at the finish (and beyond).
MOUTHFEEL: At 8.2% ABV, Rogue did a good job at lessening the alcohol bite (though there's certainly a nip, which works for me). There's a nice earthy warmth at the back of the tongue.
DRINKABILITY: For those well versed in Porter Kung Fu, this is a fine, leisurely session beer. It's brilliant with red meat, by the way. If you're more accustomed to beers that allow some sunlight to shine through, then this is a fine walk on the wild side, but you'll probably have just the one.
VERDICT: I'm a big fan of Rogue beers and this brew is no exception. I find it hard to walk past this beer when I see it on a shelf. It's a strong beer (both in taste profile and alcohol content), so if you're not already a porter/stout fan, then this beer will be more than a little startling. But if you love porters, then this beer will probably make you very happy.
