My Rogue Mocha Porter has been in the fridge for a bit, so not sure if that had an impact on the overall tasting… just to let you know. I will pick up another bottle to validate as soon as possible. My guess at the impact, though, is <5% so I am going with the review anyhow!
Tasted this one at The Belly’s house the other night during a night of dark beer tasting prior to going to see Inglourious Basterds. Great movie, BTW… especially awesome seeing it in high definition at the Galaxy 12 in Monroe, WA. Tarantino is a master at the art.
Anyhow, we shared this small bottle and noted the following… nose is yeasty.. surprising on one hand and not on the other with Rogue’s signature Pacman yeast. 🙂 Body was mellow and well balanced but really lacked and distinct flavors. No mocha and even very little chocolate flavor. Finish was non-existent.
Overall a bit of a meh experience… definitely had better from Rogue.
