Winner of the a Gold Medal at the World Beer Championships in 1995, Rogue Mocha Porter is a robust porter brewed with a combination of two-row Pale, Black Patent, Crystal, Chocolate, and Munich malts. John adds primarily Perle hops up front for their bittering attributes and then Centennial hops later during the 90 min. boil for their aromatic contributions. A proprietary ale yeast strain is used in this meaty, unfiltered porter.
Immediately note a complex hop floral nose combined with big roasted barley notes. Look for good head retention in this ruddy- brown, cloudy, medium-bodied beer. Rogue's Mocha Porter offers a bittersweet balance of malt and hops with a light cream, dry coffee finish. Overall, a wonderfully complex, well-balanced, and unique interpretation of a porter.
Founded in 1988 as the Rogue Ale Public house in Newport, OR, Rogue Ales now operates both the above mentioned brewpub as well a tasting room at the House of Rogues brewery across the bay. The complex depth of the brewery's distinctively flavored ales are a result of proprietary yeast strains, years of experimentation and the use of generous quantities of both hops and malts in their beers. Renowned brewmaster John Maier was nominated 1988 Homebrewer of the year and has been well deservedly inducted into the Northwest Brewery Hall of Fame. Rogue's award winning product line has been recognized with two Gold, four Silver, and one Bronze medal at the Great American Beer Festival. In addition to the three beers we've featured this month, the brewery also produces the following beers: Dead Guy Ale, Hazelnut Brown, Mo Ale, Mogul ale, Old Crustacean Barley Wine, Rogue-n- berry, Rogue Cran-n-cherry, Rogue Golden Ale, Rogue Imperial Stout, Rogue Maierbock, Rogue Smoke Ale, Roughstock Ale, Shakespeare Stout, Santa's Private Reserve Ale, St. Rogue Red, and Wild Irish Ale. We strongly suggest you try them all!
