A delicious treat. Pours out black with a frothy tan head. The aroma was chocolate laced with roasted coffee. There was some astringency in the mouth but it was creamy and smooth and full bodied. The flavor was a carry over from the aroma: chocolate laced with coffee. Perhaps one-dimensional but itís a great dimension.

I had this on tap. Drinking dark chocolate with stout flavor. Only drinkable in small amounts or 8 onces for me. Very rich tasting and could be a great desert beer.

very sweet and chocolatey, with notes of hops and roasted malts. too sweet for me. not what i was looking for with this brew, maybe just bad timing. in general, not sure iíd every find a good time for a chocolate stout like this....in summer it just doesnt seem like a stout time in general, and in winter iíd prefer a stout with some more warmth to it then this. not something iíd buy again, but enjoyed the experience of having it once.

A very good chocolate stout. The cocoa aroma is great. The palate is very smooth, almost like milk. Has the bitterness of sugarless chocolate, but the sweetness of milk chocolate.

Another nice beer from Rogue! Had this at the brewery. Roasted malt, chocolate aroma. Pleasant flavors. However, Hops seems to dominate at first. Making it a bitter start. Apon letting it warm up a bit, the richness of the chocolate came through. This is still a nice beer from a wonderful brewery.

This is definately a great specialty beer. Mouth watering chocolate aroma. Pours a nice looking brown/tan head. Thick like a chocolate shake. Black body color. Flavor is perfectly balanced, sweet chocolate, then refreshingly bitter with a pleasent hop aftertaste. It is all that i have come to love from this delicious brew.

Pours a dark, dark brown black with no color showing through. Fluffy brown head, cocoa colored. Aroma is sweet, chocolatey, slightly nutty. Roasted oats. Flavor is very roasty sweet, chocolate syrupy with a nice finish. Earthly delights.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2006 Wow. Pours an opaque black with a thick brown head. Aroma is straight chocolate and malt, smells like chocolate syrup. Taste is of chocolate, roasted malt, cinnamon and plenty of hops. Has the perfect amount of sweetness. Mildly bitter, roasted (but not burnt) aftertaste. Very hoppy finish. Mouthfeel is very full and round with moderate carbonation. Overall, an excellent, highly recommended brew.

On tap at the Cock and Bull Pub in Sarasota, FL. Pours a jet-black color with an enticing brown head, similar to what you would see atop a freshing stirred glass of chocolate milk. Which leads to the predomintate essence of this beer...chocolate. Aroma is chocolate intermingled with a hoppy bitterness. Flavor is chocolate, roasted malt, hops, vanilla bean and chocolate. Even spicy in an interesting manner. Body is think and oily as expected. Smooth with a medium bitter finish. This is good.

english pint: oily pour and black body. thick cremey brown head. hoppy taste with a lot of chocolate and roastiness. sweet, but more bitter than i wanted it to be. not as smooth as i wanted it to be as well, itís a bit sharp despite the creaminess probably because of all those bittering hops. oh hum, itís damn tasty though. itís a good brew, but in my opinion it's not balanced perfectly. as austinpowers rated: "well-bittered sweet stout" ?? sweet, guys, sweet
