A: Pours a very dark brown/mahogany with a fingers worth of mocha head

S: Very malty with notes of coffee, milk chocolate, and some hops

T: Follows the nose with coffee, chocolate, sweet malts and then finishes with a light bitterness from the hops and coffee

M: Full bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A nice full porter that has a nice combination of coffee, chocolate, and alcohol that work perfectly for the colder months. Price is a little high, but it's good to try at least once

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

a: pour a pleasant dark brown color. not black and not opaque and when held to the light it retains brown hues rather than the reddish which I would usually associate with this type of brew.

s: a lot of coffee and dark chocolate notes. roasty dark malt comes through as well.

t: it is surprisingly bitter yet sweet. loads of coffee flavor, dark chocolate notes are present in the aftertaste.

m: rather dry but in a good way, this really brings out the coffee and dark chocolate flavors.

o: I think this is a nice upgrade from the regular Mocha Porter (which I really enjoyed). It's also a bit expensive for what it is.

Poured from a 750ml bottle to a Dogfish Head Snifter.

Color: A very dark brown with a milk chocolate head.

Smell: Chocolate and coffee hit me in the beginning. Followed by some toasted malts and earthy hops.

Taste: Same as the aroma.

Mouthfeel: Mid-low carbonation, smooth with a medium dryness on the palate.

Overall: Full bodied with a nice subtle aroma and taste. Well balanced with the chocolate, coffee, malts and hops. Cheers.

Poured from a painted blue 22oz bottle into a Duvel Tulip.

A: Pours a dark brown color. Aggressive pour leads to a 3 finger light brown head that sticks and sticks and sticks. Lacing is strong and thick.

S: For something called a "Double Mocha Porter" I half expected there to be some chocolate in the nose. There is a touch of coffee, not a ton.

T: Actually, the flavor of this one is a lot nicer than the nose. The coffee shines through as does some of the chocolate, in the form of cocoa nibs. Nit a huge flavor, but not bad either.

M: Great porter mouthfeel, medium body, perfectly carbonated, just enough to lift flavors off the tongue.

O: Outside of the smell this is a really good beer. This is my second Rogue brew in the same week and I've been pleased with both, although not blown away. This one, is overpriced, though at $13/22oz.

Poured vigorously into a signature dogfish head glass.

A - Thick brown, almost syrup looking when poured, 2 fingers worth of chocolate brown head.

S - Nice coffee aroma, with some chocolate, and sweet aroma.

T - Good balanced flavor, no alcohol taste here at all, great balance of coffee and chocolate, would never guess this was 8.2% abv.

M - Has the viscosity of chocolate syrup, not much carbonation at all. The high viscosity leaves the taste in your mouth for what seems like forever.

O - This was a great beer. good aroma, great job of masking the alcohol. However this does taste like there's quit possibly a whole days worth of calories in this one 750ml bottle. Not something I would drink on a regular basis, but a nice treat to myself every once in awhile.

1 year old bottle.

Appearance- Dark ruddy brown with ruby highlights when held up to the light. Poured into a snifter produces a one finger head that quickly falls to a light but consistent stream of bubbles. Leaves moderate lacing as it goes down.

Aroma - Perfumey/vinous alcohol, not hot or solventy. Slight coco-nib aroma followed by toasty malts.

Taste - Is pleasant but not what I was hoping for/expecting. Slightly sweet upfront, I have a feeling this is a function of the aging. Followed by luscious vinous characters and a slight alcohol bitterness. Ends on soft notes of chocolate, but I'm missing the coffee component (aging?)

Mouthfeel - Chewy and velvety with low carbonation. High alcohol keeps it from being sticky and allows for a clean finish.

Overall - A nice and interesting beer that did well with a year of age. I could stand for more of the coffee aspect of the "mocha" but still very interesting. Would pair well with some braise lamb saddles.
