P- Thanks to my buddy Matt for this brew.

A- dark black and opaque and a frothy tan head that has a2 finger lacing on my pint.

S- choclolate and arak fruity esters with hints of sweet cream and espresso coffee.

T- Chocolate hits the palate in the forefront but then it tapers down to coffee and those dark fruity esters of grain. Very nice.

M- smoothest porter i have ever had. Very flavorful in the mouth. Not chewy but creamy enough. very well done

O- This is by far the best porter i have ever tasted and drank. I am not one for porters but i would have this beer again in an instant.

22 0z. Bomber poured into a pint glass at 45F.

A - Dark and opaque ink-black. Very little froth and it dissipates into nothing rather quickly.

S - Just as advertised. Strong espresso dominates, with sweet cream and chocolate in the background.

T - Overwhelmingly dark roasted coffee, some background dark fruit esters and a milder chocolate finish than I expected. Missing the sweetness also.

M - Its watery, kind of like drinking coffee again but it's less astringent. Just so-so for me.

O - I like this one, but I will admit that I also really enjoy my coffee several times a day. If those arent flavors one enjoys, this would be a bit disappointing from a porter standpoint.

Having now had both the Mocha Porter and the Chocolate Stout from Rogue, I prefer the Stout. It's a little sweeter which goes better with the flavors evoked.

Poured pure black with a foamy tan coloured head.

The smell is sweet malts and roasted coffee.

The taste of this is very strong mocha coffee, chile, sweet malts and some bitterness.

This beer is full bodied, slightly creamy and with medium carbonation.

I really like this, would be good for a desert, certainly pack a punch in the flavour department. One is probably enough though.

12oz bottle poured into a Lakefront Brewery pint glass

Appearance- Jet black in color with a finger and a half of mocha head that dissipates into a thin layer and stays that way throughout.

Smell- Getting lots of chocolate with a pine hop thrown in.

Taste- Lots and lots of coffee with a very slight hint of unsweetened chocolate. A tart hophits the sides of your tounge on the front end and then the coffee swoops in for the finish.

Mouthfeel- Very very watery. Reminds me of a watered down iced black coffee.

Overall- Im not a fan. More coffee then mocha. No real sweetness for balance. Good for any black coffee lover.
