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.

Dark brown. Smells of roasted coffee and malt. Sharp up front with tastes of bitter chocolate and coffee followed by tangy fig. Chocolate flavors in the aftertaste. It's sufficently carbonated and bubbly though I may prefer it just a but more bubbly.

Purchased a single 12 Oz bottle from Total Wine; not sure if there was a bottled on date, didn't look closely enough.
A- extremely carbonated. I vigorous pour yielded about a palms width of head, with a combination of tight small and large bubbles. The head receded slowly leaving an impressive lacing.
S- not sure if coffee was one of the ingredients, but I did get a whiff of coffee on the nose. Very nice Porter from the smell of it.
T - excellent Porter through and through. Coffee starts off the taste, sweetness follows with roast and balancing hop bitterness. Very tasty brew.
O - a very enjoyable brew that is both widely available and reasonably priced.

Listed in the "1001", my notes are cryptic except that it is dry, but not bitter. Let's do a review upon another tasting.
