I didn't care for the "roasted" flavor. It, and the aftertaste, tasted metallic to me.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #72 (Jan 2013):

Without a doubt more of a robust than a brown Porter, so much depth for our taste buds to deal with. A lot more complex than expected and they nailed it right with the amount of roastiness to keep it balanced. Good enough to hunt down if robust style Porters are your thing.

STYLE: English Porter
ABV: 5.7%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Complete darkness, massive light brown head

SMELL: Dark chocolate, smidge of burnt grain, mild molasses, cooked raisins, yeast, dark bread

TASTE: Creamy, dense roastiness, malty, charcoal, baker’s dark chocolate, hint of espresso, burnt sugar, herbal hops, earthy, touch of yeast, semi-dry roasted finish

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Deep mahogany brown body is crowned by a dark tan head, which is coarse, but retains quite well. Thick, fine-beaded lacing adorns the glass walls.

Aroma: Cold coffee and bitter cocoa dominate the aroma. Bitter chocolate, roasted barley, and molasses are present as well.

Taste: Opens with cold coffee and roasted barley. As the taste progresses, subtle notes of bitter cocoa and vanilla appear. Later in the taste, there are wood notes, perhaps French Oak. Dark caramel is present as well. Late in the taste, there is a lingering note of black licorice.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, very pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A very well-crafted example, classic in its style, excellent.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twenty-two ounce brown glass bomber with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

A - head poured a glorious creamy red mocha brown. Body is dark let's almost no light through. Lacing is strong 4.5

S - slight ABV notes with powerful sweet roasted molasses . simple but delicious 4

T - tangy sour hop aftertaste with leathery roasted initial tastes. Like a humidor inside a bakery 4.25

M - a touch too effervescent but quite creamy. No ABV sting 3.75

O - nice. Better than other rogness offerings. A simple but very strong porter. 4
