A-dark brown black color with a decent tan head and some lacing

S-malty, coffee, hint of chocolate

T-dark roasted malt, coffee, minimal chocolate, some awkward bitterness

F-medium body with light to moderate carbonation, smooth and creamy

O-nothing special, flavor just seems a little off and unbalanced

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.
