Rogue Mocha Porter

Happy Square Root Day! For those of you that are calling me a geek, well I've heard it already today. But here's the ultra geek, which of course I was semi-compared to at the office today because of mentioning this special day. And as a present, I am gonna provide you with some technical and mathematical statistics of my Rogue Mocha Porter brewed by Oregon Brewing Co. in Newport Oregon. I mentioned when drinking my Rogue Chocolate Stout that these guys put a lot of those stats on the bottle, but that's not the case here--could be because I have the small 12 oz. one tonight.

So right from their site:

Style: Porter Food Pairing: Beef, Desserts

Tasting Notes:

Ruddy brown in color, a bittersweet balance of malt and hops with a light cream finish.

13 Ingredients:

Malts: Northwest Harrington & Klages;
135-165, 95-115, and 70-80 Crystal; Beeston Chocolate, Black, Munich and Carastan.

Hops: Centennial & Perle Hops.

Yeast & Water: Rogue's Pacman Yeast & Free Range Coastal Water.


13º PLATO; 54 IBU; 73 AA; 77º Lovibond

World Class Package:

Draft, 22oz Bottle, 12oz Six Pack

Or, in my case, one bottle from Total Wine. Mmmm... Pacman Yeast... Gobble, gobble, gobble.

I must say that the name is perfect. Tremendous mocha and coffee aroma and flavors. I also really like the richness and dark burnt flavors that this beer gives off. Yet it is still creamy and very smooth to drink. The aftertaste is really nice and this is for sure one of my favorite Rogue beers.
