Opaque dark chocolate brown colour with a diminishing frothy tan coloured head. Milk chocolate battles with roasted coffee in the aroma. Lightly astringent roasty malts up front, rich chocolate backbone throughout, with a lingering roasty bitter finish. Full bodied, rich and smooth mouthfeel.

Very nice stout. My daughter did not want her vanilla ice cream cone, and this went well with it. Pours dark black, with a tan head that hangs on. Fullness in the mouthfees from the oats with some nice black flavor from the roasted malts is very nice. Bitterness is notcable but not overpowering. Chocolate is there, but agian does not overpower in my opinion. This a beer that goes very well with rich deserts.

Well, I have to disagree. This beer did not taste totally like real chocolate--more like Hersheys Chocolate Syrup. Very nice balance, though, and gorgeous, incredible black color. I like it.

This is mad chocolatey. Like, not "chocolate-flavored" but ACTUAL chocolate taste. The head was practically maroon colored it was so rich and dark. Masterful.

This is easily the best chocolate beer that Ive had. Strong aromas of chocolate, along with the slightest hint of roasted coffee. The flavor is of authentic chocolate, not processed chocolate syrup, but REAL chocolate. The sweetness is well balanced by the hops too. Id be in big trouble if I could drink this all the time!

Excellent choice for the fine beer drinker who also enjoys rich dark chocolate. Poured that most perfect beer shade, black and head an awesomely brown head to match. The aroma reminded me of.. chocolate, as did the flavor. It tasted like what I would expect carbonated melted dark chocolate to taste like. Awesome

Hands down the best "chocolate" beer Ive ever tasted. Pitch black in the glass with a tight, creamy tan head. Aroma of bittersweet dark chocolate is rich and hard to miss. Flavor dominated by the bittersweet chocolate with some background espresso and just the right amount of hop bitterness to keep the sweetness in check. Mouthfeel silky smooooth. A superb dessert beer served in a snifter at cellar temp. Great stuff!

Yum. Another delicious brew from Rogue. Poured a beautiful shade of black, with a short-lived brown head. Aroma was a crisp hop note, followed by a tantalizing malty blend of espresso, fruit, and dark chocolate. The flavor at first reminded me of Rogues Shakespeare stout, but noticably smoother and somewhat sweeter. This general "stoutiness" then opened into sweet milk chocolate and then bitter dark chocolate notes that formed a perfect finish. Truly delicious, and wonderfully creamy and thick. A new favorite.
