Keg at The Barley Mow, Bristol - Pours jet black with a medium tanned head. Medium carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma - roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee. Taste - roasted coffee at the front with dark chocolate notes leading to a nice long bitter finish. Solid coffee based porter.

Poured to a teku glass.


A: The body is pure black with a beige to brown head, just like an expresso's head. The beer appears to have some lacing but minor head retention.
S: The aroma is great. There's a hoppy accent, very smooth, on a pile of coffee and specially cocoa. This smells wonderfully good.
T: The taste is an extension of the aroma using the hoppiness as a base for the coffee and cocoa profiles. I was actually expecting the coffee to be more powerful than any other flavor but the cocoa is really strong here, specially because it's no milk chocolate variation or a very sweet one. Instead, it's a bitter almost 100% cocoa that's present in the beer and that makes this specific taste be over everything else.
M: The mouthfeel is very consistent, dense and smooth. It's actually more liquor-y than beer-y. :)
O: For a coffee induced beer, this is not the best experience available. I'd say that, besides the aroma, all other characteristics are almost average. But it's an always good to go beer when available.

Stiff brown pour, 3/4" tan head. Aroma drops mocha coffee notes, some chocolate and brown malt.

Not overly hoppy or bitter, this one goes for more of the coffee roasted notes, smoothed out hence the mocha aspect I would surmise. This is one of those straightforward beers Rogue makes that shows they can make good to even great (dbl choc stout) stuff when they aren't trying to totally Dogfish Head up their stuff.
