Review: Mocha Porter

Mocha Porter from Rogue Ales Brewery / Brewer's on the Bay
Rating: B+

Appearance: Very dark, but not quite opaque. Some ruby highlights are visible when held up to the light. Head is meager, but leaves some lace.

Smell: More hop character than typical for the style. Coffee as expected. Probably poured a little colder than I should have.

Taste: Roasty coffee and bitter chocolate flavors. Slightly burnt aftertaste. A little bit more on the burnt/bitter side than I prefer.

Mouthfeel: On the thicker side,carbonation seems a little high.

Drinkability: Good, not great.

Serving type: bottle
