a classic porter in my world. i love this beer. it pours what appears to be a nearly black color, but upon a hold up to the light, a faint crimson fire is burning at the bottom, nearly extinguished. big bubbled tan head rests atop. the nose is bitter dark malts and fresh coffee beans, unbrewed. the flavor is really roasty, malt first. the mocha element is complementary only, dark cocoa and black coffee. its a nice mix, nice balance. feel is perhaps a tad overcarbonated. i like my porters mellow, so this might be a personal thing, but its borderline soda pop. still, velvety medium body, not heavy for a porter, and a sessionable alcohol level. really nice stuff, especially in fall time. might use this in my chilli next time i make a pot.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Samuel Adams pint glass. Purchased at Wakefield Liquors in Wakefield, RI.

A- Dark brown, clear body with amber highlights. Medium thick head, little lacing.

S- Roasted malt, coffee beans, milk chocolate

T- Starts with some mocha-chocolate notes, ends w/a nice roasted malt bitterness that lingers for a while.

M- Slightly watery/thin. Not the best aspect of this beer.

Overall, a middle-of-the-road porter. I've had better, I've had worse. I prefer a more robust, thicker bodied porter.

A: Pours a very dark mahogany color with 2 fingers worth of tan head that lasts for a while

S: A good amount of roasty malts comprising coffee and chocolate. Really not much else

T: Starts off with the coffee and milk chocolate and then goes into some astringent roastiness. Reminds me of a coffee flavored malted milk ball

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth

O: A nice coffee and chocolate porter with a good amount of flavor. Definitely get both the coffee and chocolate throughout, with no other distracting flavors. Definitely worth a try if you like coffee or chocolate beers

Poured into a 10 oz snifter from 22 oz bomber

A:Nice two finger dark brown head. Looks thicker than it actually is.

S: Coffee with a bit of burn malts.

T:All coffee with a nice malty backbone to keep it from being overwhelming.

M: Thicker than most porters I've had. Not much coating of the mouth with this one.

O: Rogue is my favorite brewery and for me this beer delivers. Good price and goes well with a breakfast style dinner.
