Rogue Ales Allegro Coffee Porter American Porter at 6.2% ABV (C$8.99 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 650 ml, no bottle date or best before)

Appearance: nearly opaque black with two fingers of mocha head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Aroma: intense coffee, dark malt, mild milk chocolate, dark fruit, light spice. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Full slightly sticky body, moderate-low carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5)

Not bad, although the coffee comes across a bit aggressive. Not bad for Rogue, but as usual they seem to be trying for a level of complexity they’re just not capable of pulling off. (15/20)
