4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow, a chocolate beer that tastes like chocolate? Sadly, most don’t. Rogue has really outdone themselves with their double chocolate stout. It captures the chocolate liquor flavor and bittersweet chocolate aroma amazingly well.
Appearance is inviting with a chocolate color and dark tan head. Palate is very full and smooth with a thin, wet finish. Taste is mildly sweet, lots of chocolate liquor and a moderately bitter hops finish. Overall, this is one amazing beer. I would prefer a tad sweeter, as I like to drink it alone for dessert. Still, one of the best beers I’ve had considering that it delivers what others beers have promised but fallen short of before (ommegang chocolate indulgence, i’m looking at you).

Draft at Eulogy. Nearly opaque black brown pour that shows clear around the edges. Tuft of khaki foam up top. Dark chocolate syrup. Liquorice cigars. Coffee cocoa butter. Feels like comfort food.

Great beer. Definitely taste the chocolate. Pitch black in color, smell chocolate and toffee, dark chocolate in taste, minimal tan head and no lacing

Look: pours a dark black. A dark brown sugar head. Not oily at all.
Smell: heavy chocolate. Sweet fruits. Vanilla.
Taste: bitter chocolate. Vanilla. Bitter coffee. Coconut.
Feel: very dry. Leaves a thin film on the mouth.
Overall: ok beer. Looking for more of a candy flavor than the bitterness and dryness with a name like double chocolate.
First drank: home 11/8/14

On tap at le sur mesure in Nantes. Black color with small head. Medium to full body and medium carbonation. Taste a bit of alcohol. But still very easy to drink and with a creamy texture. Very good

Very dark, finger of khaki head. Smells of milk chocolate, cocoa, a little coffee, a little cookie dough as well. Taste is very chocolatey as expected, bakers chocolate, a roasted hop, a little coffee, tobacco. It's what you expect in a beer called double chocolate and it's done well. Very much a dessert in a bottle.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap poured into a sampler. The aroma is rich, sweet chocolate candy bar with some turtle candy qualities. The rich, dark, opaque brown beer is topped with a thick, tan, soapy ring. A ver6 light surface speckling is retainedand a light lace is left on the glass. The taste is highly sugar sweet with a medium chocolate bitter. The slick, viscous, and full malt body beer has a light, creamy, soft carbonation. The flavor is full of chocolate - lots of chocolate with a touch of alcohol warmth. It’s a bit dry with a surprisingly clean aftertaste.

Bottiglia. Birra semplicemente pazzesca, colore nerissimo con una bella schiuma opaca che non finisce mai. Al naso il cioccolato prima e la vaniglia poi esplodono con un’intensità che fatico a ricordare in altre birre. In bocca il cioccolato viene perfettamente bilanciato da una nota di caffè che evita alla bevuta di risultare stucchevole. L’alcool c’è e non si nasconde, ma questa è davvero una birra completamente diversa da quanto ho bevuto sino ad ora.
