Bought at Total Wine in Claymont DE a few weeks ago.

Continuing with my Rogue journey, surprisingly I haven't had the regular Mocha Porter but went straight for the Double.

Poured into a tulip from a bomber, gave a relatively strong/fast pour to release the scent and test the headiness.
Gave me a 3 finger head of brownish cream.
The mocha malt scent, as many reviewers have said, is so strong but it's not unpleasant or overpowering.
I would argue that it's right where it needs to be. If it were less, I'd almost be disappointed in expectations of a double porter.

The taste is very malty and the mocha is there, I can taste a lingering alcohol but it isn't overly so. Some nuttiness and coffee like drinking a non-cream cafe mocha with no sugar, but it is most definitely a porter beer.

It's a smooth drink, enjoyable and worthy of the Rogue name in my opinion.

Slightly lighter mouthfeel that I would think, but it's still quite good.

look: 3 | smell: 1 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

serving: poured into glass
Color: very dark, frothy mocha colored head, does not stick
Smell: very faint mocha/malt, not much smell. disappointing as I expected much more mocha. Not sure where people are getting the overload of smell from.
Taste: Light consistency for a dark beer, malt like in taste, not very strong mocha/chocolate taste. Leaves a nice mocha after taste. Slight bitterness not too much.Very easy to drink.

Solid beer but not worthy of a high rating IMO. Good entry level dark beer for someone who does not drink them but would like much more smell and taste.
