Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
There's no better time than the holidays to celebrate the joining of friends and families, & Allegro Coffee Porter joins two of the planet's best brewed beverages: a porter brewed with a bittersweet balance of malt and hops, and lightly-roasted Allegro® Celebration Caffee coffee brewed for sweet notes of butterscotch, toffee and chocolate. With hops and malt from the hopyards and barley fields of Rogue Farms in Oregon and coffee beans from Guatemala and Ethiopia, we think you'll consider this sweet, smooth porter a new seasonal favorite.

Painted 22 oz bottle on Christmas Day, 2016.

Look: Beer pours dark brown in color, deep red-brown and almost opaque in the glass. Moderate size, fluffy and durable tan head.

Aroma: dark roasted grains in balance with medium roast coffee.

Flavor: delivers what the nose suggests, including a very well balanced mix of dark roasted grains and coffee flavors with a clear suggestion of dark chocolate. Mild bitterness.

Feel: full bodied; creamy smooth; relatively lively carbonation.

Overall: excellent, surprising even this Rogue fan.

Pours a lighter brown with a medium tan head that has light retention and a little lacing left behind. The aroma isn't bad but it's a little oddly sweet. There isn't much coffee to it but there's a little hint of earthy hops. The taste is about the same but a little less robust. Again it isn't bad but it's not really porter and it's very light in the coffee. The body is lighter, thin, and fairly carbonated.

22 ounce bottle - $6.98 at Sherlock's in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body beneath a medium-sized, light beige-colored head.

Smell: Blended malty notes of darkened breadcrust, nutty caramel, melty milk chocolate, and, of course, the coffee beans with faint, faint hints of spice and fruit. I found it nice and inviting.

Taste: Just as with the aroma, it's a pleasantly malty melange of chocolate, toasted bread, smooth caramel and upscale cola. Plus, the balanced coffee addition. Medium sweetness. Tiny pinch of malted milk. A light fruitiness of golden raisin. Modest hop flavors, lightly bitter. Malty finish, still with the coffee and a light, lingering sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Carbonation is just a hair of medium.

Overall: Getting through some of today's heavy, heavily flavored beers takes time and effort, people, and dammit, I don't have a lot of either. However, this was a joy to drink. Whaddya say, Rogue, can we toss Mocha Porter and replace it with this offering year-round?

First taste and I was blown away. Rogue really outdid themselves this time. I drank this beer over the course of a band practice and as it warmed the flavors became even more pronounced. Predominantly coffee flavored (obviously) with hints of roasted malts and unsweetened dark chocolate. I wish that this beer could have lasted forever, and I highly recommend trying it even if you're not a coffee porter fan. It's a great brew for any occasion.

22 ounce bottle into signature pint glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Listed as 6.2% ABV on the bottle. Pours lightly hazy deep reddish brown color with a 2 finger fairly dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big medium roasted coffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, light herbal, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of coffee and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of medium roasted coffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, light herbal, and roasted earthiness. Light herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of coffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness, complexity, and balance of coffee and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy, and slightly bready/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent coffee porter. All around great complexity, balance, and robustness of coffee and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. This is unique because there are no roasted malts according to the label; but the coffee provides plenty of roast/chocolate flavors that are very well balanced with the malts. A very enjoyable offering.

The taste is distinctive -- the base of it is a mild, English-style porter, but the medium-roast coffee adds just a hint of bottom end. Truly a coffee porter and not a coffee stout.
