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.

I really liked this IPA although it's much smoother compared to regular IPAs I drink. Definitely sweet undertones; like coffee and chocolate but not overwhelming at all.
I'm a visual person too and I like the bottling, labeling, etc. However, I bought a single bottle and had no information on the beer at all. Usually like seeing some IBU info on the bottle.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours very dark brown (almost black) with a three-finger length tan head and plentiful visible bubbles along the side of the glass. I detect aromas of dark roasted malts with coffee and chocolate. The taste directly follows the nose. I pick up those dark roasted malt notes as well as the coffee and the chocolate. It's a bit on the watery side. The body is light to medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is smooth and the drinkability is good. This is a very good beer.
