AMERICAN PORTER
Rogue Mocha Porter

Oregon’s Rogue makes some of the country’s finest black beers, and their Mocha Porter is no exception. It showcases the extraordinary coffee and chocolate flavors that emerge when barley is fully roasted instead of just darkly toasted. Unlike many craft brewers, Rogue knows how to load a beer with flavor without weighing it down with alcohol. Their Mocha Porter is silken in texture and goes down easy. Uncommonly herbal and hoppy on the nose, the beer is not excessively bitter. Its flavors start off sweet and seductive, but finish with a quenchingly dry tang that tempts you to try another.

Price: $7 (22 oz.)
