This was a random pick, and I think it might have been a random bottle, left over from who-knows-when. At least that was how it went over.

This thing pour beautifully, all black and foamy. The lacing continues to impress. The smell is a let down as it is just slightly roasty. Mocha? Maybe. The taste is similarly disappointingly bland. I wanted a bigger malty taste and it was just adequate. I found myself liking it more as I drank, and it would not offend if I had two to drink, but it might bore after that.

Not recommended. You can find a better porter without looking too hard.

Rogue Mocha Porter
5.6% ABV. 54 IBU's American Porter
Look: Pitch black, inch. tan head that dissapates to a tiny ring, little lacing.
Smell: Coffee, dark malts, bread and cacao
Taste: Coffee, dark chocolate, roasty bitterness, goes down smooth and has a bitter aftertaste.
Feel: The feel is almost akin to a Guinness, but not as thin.
Overall: Whether, or not the coffee is added during the brewing process, it ends up being a really well balanced porter that feels more like a stout. I did not see any red hues to the ale even when held up to the light.

Pours a dark brown close to black color and leaves the same colored body with a one and a half finger rocky white head that rises, holds for a good minute and dies at a gentle pace; lacing is actually kinda all over the place, I mean its there, its just sporadic and messy; the aroma has mocha coffee up front with a nice dosing of cocoa to add a nice sweetness to it; slightly roasty yet sweet; the taste is bittersweet - combined nicely through the coffee and cocoa, and even as it warms it stays balanced and still has a nice roastiness to it; no aftertaste, dry finish; its pretty easy on the palate and sessionable; overall, a porter well worthy of coming back to in the winter months.

At Bierkraft. In pint glass. Lunch with Pedro, Miguel, David, Alberto && Miguel Angel Muñoz. With chicken casserole. Really pleasant coffee and chocolate notes with a vanilla sweet ending. Very smooth drinking and all packed in a low abv brew. Great
