Dark brown pour with a tan, convex head that makes my glass of beer look like a porter ice cream cone. Good retention and impressive branches of lace.

Wet, woody, slightly nutty aroma with a roasty underlayer. Doesn't smell like a double anything.

Tastes roastier than it smells. Expansive roast character that starts mild and finishes almost char-like. Monotone but nice. Rogue Pacman yeast body. Like the aroma, I ain't pickin' up no mocha.

Not as good as my memory of it, I remember this as a standout from the American Craft Beerfest. Doesn't taste, smell or feel like a big beer but I like it just the same.

One thing that bothers me about using the name Mocha, is that I get almost no coffee flavor from this beer. It's a very solid double porter with a misleading name. for being a double porter, it's pretty good. Heavy on the bittering hops, low on the aroma and flavor to bring out the malt flavors. Nose is dominated by malt and slight alcohol mixed with hops. Tasty, but like I said... where's the coffee?

I was told this beer wasn’t going to wow me, but I decided to risk it. At 12.99 a bottle it certainly is priced to impress the hell out of me.
Pours a deep brown but not nearly black body. A tall head forms and dissipates almost as quickly as it formed. Doesn’t look overly thick but it is an imperial porter so I suppose that’s why this is a porter?
Nose has some roasted coffee, a hint of perhaps cocco, some vanilla, and surprisingly a LOT of hop character.
This just isn’t an “imperial” anything. I think other than a touch more abv than is needed there aren’t really any intense flavors here. The Shakespeare, oatmeal, and chocolate stouts all pack more flavor and cost less. You have some coffee, a lot of roasted malt flavors, plenty of hops for a porter, vanilla, and I suppose there are some chocolate notes somewhere in this. I’m not thinking mocha with this beer and I honestly do think that with their regular offering. Honestly, can I get some coffee flavor here?
Based on abv the body is about right though a touch thin. Based on the double rogue lable, it’s way too thin! The body really comes off medium for the stout/porter world. Almost watery for an imperial version. Alcohol is lower than most in these categories, but I can still taste it.
Lately I have been trying to give Rogue a chance. I mean they take up an insane amount of shelf space in a lot of places, and I know people buy their beer. The problem is they just make mediocre beer and charge absurd prices. They have less than 5 beers today worth what they charge for them. They choose the wrong format for most of their beers. They don’t bottle date. I’m sorry but Rogue seems hell bent on being a shitty brewer with great distribution.

FYI price was strongly factored into this review. This is a 36 dollar 6 pack equivalent which might be acceptable for a really world class beer. This is so far from it.

I really enjoyed this beer. I usually go for the brown ales and this double porter is heavier than the brown ales, but lighter than the stouts. There were definite tastes of both coffee and chocolate with the chocolate winning out. In spite of the high ABV level, this was a very smooth beer that went down easily. The deep brown color and mocha aroma only added to the overall drinking experience. This is what a Double Mocha Porter should be!

3.7/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 750 ml bottle into tulip glass.

Pours a near black color with a nice, latte colored frothy head. Some nice lacing occurs.

Smells of coffee and chocolate right off the bat. Some nice roasted character, complemented by some nice, subtle earthy hops.

Aroma matches the taste. Creamy chocolate and slight coffee right away (kinda disappointed on the coffee flavor). Some nice thick, milkshake like qualities. A little bit of roasted bitterness at the end.

Nice and full bodied. A little more carbonation than I would like. Nice bitter chocolate taste sticks around in my mouth.

Overall, this is a good beer, not great. Wish this was a little stronger on the coffee taste. Not overly complex or anything, just solid and straightforward. Pretty drinkable for just over 8%

Edit: This beer gets better as it warms up. Creamy malts really come through more, and enhance this beer.

3.2/5  rDev -17.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

750ml bottle - $10.99 at Olde Crabapple Bottle Shoppe in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a black body with a tall, tan head beaming with pride and hinting at belligerence.

Smell: Roasty, espresso powder-scented malts with an insertion of dark chocolate and a bit of scorched heavy cream.

Taste: A rather roasty opening, which remains the predominate taste, as, unfortunately, the chocolate and cream accents from the aroma don't carry over particularly well into the final flavor. Only lightly sweet. A bit of black currant, black licorice, and a couple drops of Maggi liquid seasoning. Develops a true burnt maltiness as the hop bitterness emerges alongside a hint of scorched chopped garlic. Finishes about the same with some enduring acrid astringency beyond the finish reminiscent of a doubling-up of the ashen finish from the original.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: To be honest, I was never too terribly fond of the standard Mocha Porter, but was fully open to giving this a try. I thought its predecessor was merely alright, and, for me, this was, in essence, an 'imperialized' alright beer.

Poured into a pint glass. Had a thick two finger dark brown head. Completely opaque maybea hint of deep brown tones if i hold it to the light. I smells like a malt/coffee dream. Smells almost as thich as the mouthfeel actually is. Mouthfeel is heavy and sticks with you with that faint coffee taste. Lacing wasn't heavy but definately apparent. Taste was that of a heavy coffee malt festival in my mouth. I like this for a mocha porter I didn't get much of the typical chocolate flavors, which I would have loved but I really enjoyed this beer.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass, the beer pours thick, with a heavy, creamy, milk chocolate colored head that starts out at a towering three inches, but settles into a dense half inch layer. Aromas of slight booze initially, with a decent balance of coffee and mild bitter chocolate, with a molasses type malt character. Flavors of heavy, dark roasted coffee and dark chocolate, with a remarkably light body to keep with the style. Bitterness prevails here, and it is delicious! Smooth, light, and creamy bodied, the beer leaves a roadmap of lacing along the glass. Fantastic bitter aftertaste, with a mouthful of coffee characteristics. The finish is a little dry and bitter, perfect for the brew. This is a fun, tasty brew. Will make a great winter warmer.

It pours a deep dark brown almost black color. Has a nice thick tan colored head. The smell is mostly roasted malts and coffee. The taste is
chocolate and mocha coffee and small hints of hops. This was my first Porter brew. I didn't know what to expect really and found this beer to be a real nice surprise. The alcohol content is very high at 8.2 and it doesn't take long to notice it either. Warms you up quick. I will be drinking this again but more in the colder months of the year.

A- Pours a dark mahogany / black, has some brown hues at the edges when held to light. Produces a really nice thick, creamy, dark tan head.

S- Coffee, a bit of chocolate, some hops in the background.

T- Starts out with lots of roasted malts, coffee, some dark chocolate, and alcohol. It's probably more alcoholic than you would expect, warming and with a touch of dark fruit. Finishes with a slightly sweet, caramelly, heavily roasted flavor. Hops do a great job of balancing the huge malts in this beer.

M- Medium bodied, good carbonation keeps the beer pretty light, has a creamy, smooth feel. It's very drinkable but this a beer that you definitely want to drink slowly because of the huge flavors in it.

O- A nice beer, I'm not about to endorse the existence of an "Imperial Porter" style, but the name Rogue uses makes sense, this porter is aggressive, alcoholic, and packed with flavor. It's maybe a bit pricey but this is worth a shot.

750ml Bottle poured into a Duvel Tulip.
Served slightly chilled.

A: Deep-rich brown which I am having a hard time describing really. Liquid wood? Coca Cola? Pour came with 4 fingers worth of tan head. Left little lacing.

S: Coffee paired with bitter dark chocolate. A great deal of sweetness to the beer as well. Getting caramel notes along with vanilla and roasted malts. The nose became more flavorful as the beer warmed up.

T: Strong coffee and chocolate up front followed by vanilla, caramel and a slight hop character. There is a slight bitterness on the finish; different. Also quite a bit of booze coming through as well, which is strange for only a 8.2% beer.

M: Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Strange booziness coming from beer that you would think wouldn't be a problem at only 8.2 ABV.

O: Its not a bad beer, but it isn't really memorable at all either. Alcohol could be toned down a little bit as well.

A – Deep mahogany, completely opague, even when held up to an intense halogen desk lamp. The burly wood colored one-finger head quickly vanished, leaving some thick lacing around the edges of of the gobbler after pouring it from a 750 ml bomber.

S – Caramel, port, dark chocolate. There is a hint of banana on the backside. This smells rich and the aroma intensifies was the beer warmed a little.

T – Hits the tongue with a hint of barley wine and finishes with with dutch cocoa powder, deep and bitter. There seems to be a good amount of hops cutting the sweetness you might expect from a blend of six different malts. The label says Summit and Rogue Micro Hopyard Williamette Hops were used. The complexity you'd expect from a beer with that many flavor agents. It all comes from the malts and the hops – there is no added flavor – no coffee beans, cacao nibs or anything else commonly added to a big, dark beer. It has a nice traditional beer taste, only bigger. The flavor palate is very full.

M – This is one of those beers that would be good to offer that person who is scared of dark beers because they presume all dark beers are thick as oil. This has a nice medium feel. It is substantial. It makes you want to sip it slowly, But it is not stand a spoon in it, or even coat the back of the spoon thick. Close your eyes and you might never guess this is a dark colored brew.

D – It's 8.2 ABV, so it is probably good that this is not a beer you can drink a lot of.. The flavor is too intense to drink it fast anyhow. This would be a great beer after dinner before shifting to something more sessionable. Would also be nice in the evening by the beach, or late night by a fire. It's the kind of beer that demands and deserves your relaxed attention.

A: Pitch black with a finger's width brown head that dies down to a thin line of bubbles. Some lacing left on glass.

S: Sweet roasted malt and chocolate. There is also a fruitiness to the aroma with a little hop.

T: It starts out sweet and milk chocolate and that gives way to a more roasted bitterness with the darker chocolate flavors. In the middle you can taste a little hop and dark fruit. Very nice.

M: Smooth, creamy, medium body.

O: This is a very good double porter. It has a great flavor and aroma. Even though the alcohol is high, it is hidden very well.

Rogue Double Mocha was served to me in a Rogue Goblet. Damn that goblet is heavy. The head is brown, small, and large-bubbled. The body is somewhere between black and very dark brown. Overall, it looks a little bit like cola.

The aroma is strong coffee.

Powerful coffee. Black coffee and a bit of black malt. A touch of warmth and booze in the background, and more coffee. This beer is fine, but it is pretty one-dimensional. The finish does have a bit of fruity hops and some bitterness.

The carbonation is a little bit prickly, but the body has enough heft to it.

Lots of coffee. The coffee is well-done but not fantastic. If you like coffee beer, this is a probably one you want to try.

T - The beer has a strong malty backbone with hints of vanilla and chocolate. The flavors are bold. A bit of hop bitterness on the finish.

M - The beer has a thick and rich feeling on the palate. The flavors tend to linger and cling to the tongue.

Overall - This is a solid porter with deep satisfying flavors. I am sure having it on tap was a big help to bringing out these qualities. Drinkers of stouts, porters and brown ales will go for this.

Pours a one finger light brown head that fades slowly, leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights. Light-medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Chocolate nose and flavor is dry/baker's chocolate. Very dry finish. Higher ABV is hidden. $12.95 for a 750ml blue bottle from Bert's Better Beers Hooksett, NH.

poured from bottle into tulip glassware.

pours extremely dark brown. nice, full head; lightly tanned, recedes a bit, excellent lacing.

smell is definitely the high point for me. wonderful earthy mix of chocolate, coffee, a little carmelized sugar, and just a whiff of that unmistakable pac-man yeast.

taste is initially a nice blend of the dark malts, pretty big coffee bomb and a bit of warm alcohol; however, the finish is too bitter. as with coffee, it's a fine line between dark roast and burnt. maybe it'll mellow with a year or two on it, but for now, i prefer the 'single' mocha porter from rogue.

A lot of reviewers stating heavy aromas with this one. I however do get a lot of big booming aromas. I get a slightly fruity nose. A little coffee and chocolate there with an ever so slight floral hops. The aromas are quite subtle for me.

Taste good though. Slightly fruity citrus start which is cut short by coffee and chocolate. The roasted malts are also noticeable. A nice sharp bitter finish that reminds me of bitter chocolate. The bitterness hangs on for quite some time.

Overall a nice beer. My only wish is that is had a little more smoother mouth feel to it. A little more creamy perhaps? Dunno... but a good beer worth a try.

On tap at the brewery the other day.

The beer pours the expected blackish brown color with good head retenion and lacing. The nose is pretty good, albeit rather predictable, showcasing coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and light licorice. The flavor profile generally replicates the nose, except the beer was not as sweet as I was expecting (thankfully), and there was considerably more licorice as well. Otherwise, dark chocolate, vanilla and light coffee are countered very well by some pretty impressive hoppy bitterness, which tends to dry this beer out on the finish. In combination, it seemed to impart a roastiness to the malt flavor, and I picked up some underlying leather and tobacco as well. Mouthfeel is fairly full, though this beer is a bit more more boozy than I was expecting for an 8.2% beer.

I don't know. This is a solid enough beer, but I can't say I found it to be all that drinkable. The considerable licorice and all too noticeable alcohol detracted from what I thought was otherwise a pretty decent beer from Rogue. Oh well....

Paid $11.99 for this 750ml at World Market as I recall for this.

Nice black with hints of brown and brick in the rim. I poured it aggressively into a Guinness pint glass which produced a 3 finder frothy heard producing nice gobs of lacing around the sides.

Smelled of a smoky peaty, and coffee concoction.

The flavors were the same but with more coffee. There were some light hops notes. The bottle says 78 IBUs but it seemed less. It was well balanced with the hops and the alcohol was not biting and again not seeming like 8.2%. This brew could have been better with a greater degree of complexity.

It was full bodied and thick in the mouth. Very drinkable and I had no trouble downing the 750ml.

This was very good and a great example of the style but I'm not sure it justified $12. I'd buy this again at $10 all day, but $12 seems a bit high.

To illustrate the dense flavors and full-bodied character, I followed this with the Breckenridge Vanilla Porter which was hard to taste as it was lighter that this Rogue.

Enjoyed from the tap at Tops, poured into a shaker pint.

Like molten dark chocolate in the glass, though a hold to the light reveals a bit more clarity, with hints of burgundy liquid shining through. It’s topped with a frothy khaki-colored head about a finger thick that slowly collapses to a medium-sized ring. Thin vertical strings of lace.

Lots of toast, espresso and dark chocolate in the nose. It leans toward the burnt malts. Some sweet cocoa and peanut emerges as the beer warms up.

They should’ve named this Double Shot of Espresso — I get a ton of heavily roasted coffee beans at the start. Tangy dark chocolate and of bready malts emerge mid palate before a lingering acrid bitterness.

Medium-bodied, soft and creamy. Carbonation pokes the tongue lightly and breaks it apart in moderate fizz. Appropriately light on the palate to balance the heavy flavor.

These imperialized versions of Rogue’s regular beers are infinitely better than the originals. Double Mocha blows Mocha Porter away with roasty, caffeinated goodness.

A – Midnight red-brown with mahogany and ruby highlights. The head is beautiful – tall with a dark khaki cascade.

S – Lighter than expected. Smoke, cedar hops. Touch of coffee.

T – Dark, smokey roast. There’s a distinct coffee bitterness but not much coffee flavor. Woody hop character. Fairly one note actually – which isn’t always a bad thing, but I would have liked the flavors to stand out a bit more. I felt like I was waiting for a crescendo, or a smooth transition to a new flavor, but neither really manifested to the degree I was hoping for.

M – Medium body that thins through the finish. Woody hop notes on the backend.

O – Very drinkable, but I’d say the flavor and mouthfeel were just average. I was really hoping for something more.

A: Dark chocolate brown, black appearance. Two-finger bubbly head with some nice lacing.

S: Heavy coffee and espresso aroma, Bittersweet chocolate, chocolate malts, and some wine-like fruits. Deep and rich aroma.

T: Sweet chocolate and honey upfront, moves quickly to an extraordinarily smooth blend of dark and bitter chocolates and fresh coffee. The body is heavy, but luxuriously smooth. Mild hop bite and lingering chocolaty sweetness ends up in a mildly boozy yet flavor-rich aftertaste.

M: Mildly bitter, rich, and smooth. I wish it was a little less carbonated, but it doesn't disappoint. Medium carbonation with a very well balanced medium-sized body.

Sits pitch black in the glass with a about a quarter inch light beige head. Ruby and brown copper colors around the edges when viewed in the light.

The smell is very earthy. There is a weak cocoa powder smell that is paired with an instant coffee. It's kind of odd. A little bit of dark fruits as it gets a bit warmer. If you try, you can get some hops in there, but there isn't much.

It drinks as though you had a strong brown ale and mixed it with some stout. The most dominant flavors are definitely the weak cocoa and coffee flavors, but they aren't very strong or as prevalent as I would have hoped or expected. The malt character goes a little beyond roasted and almost has a burned quality to it.

There isn't much in the mouthfeel. It's rather dull and almost chalky. Sits pretty dry.

This is an almost-there-beer for me. I was actually kind of disappointed with it. I had bigger expectations with the flavor and there really wasn't much there. I think this beer could be improved on and has potential to be so much better.
