Itís always fun to try a Chocolate Stout. Rogue Chocolate Stout is fun to drink for reasons beyond the novelty of the experience. This is an expertly balanced stout all the way through. But weíll get to that. Appearance is superb. Color is black as my soul, and the head is rocky and appropriately cocoa colored. Smell points mostly to coffee but toasted malt and cocoa beans shine through, too. Flavor is chocolaty without being excessive. Roasted coffee hits the front of the tongue. The middle is sweet, milky, malty, rich, and creamy. Finally, the hops help to create a final sensation that captures the fruity, spicy character of bittersweet chocolate. Canít wait to try the Double Chocolate Stout!

Rated from notes taken 6 Mar 2014 -- Itís been a long while since Iíve had this beer. Great roasty malt flavor that is deepened by the chocolate flavor. Very enjoyable beer to drink pretty much anytime.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with a beautiful dark tan head. Aroma is of dark chocolate, sour milk, coffee and tootsie rolls. Tastes of dark chocolate syrup, coffee, smoke, roasted malt, and even some mint. Has a dry heavy body with low carbonation and a burnt aftertaste. This is a very nice dessert replacement.

bottle. Black with one finger head. Nice thick pour. Old bottle, but chocolate flavors are strong. A touch of oxidation, but overall, flavors are excellent. One of the better Rogue beers Iíve had.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color negro con espuma beige algo ligera. Aromas de cereal dulce, chocolate. Cuerpo medio-bajo, inicio dulce, que recuerda claramente al cereal al que se une un sabor achocolatado que hacia el final adquiere un amargor terroso moderado muy rico. Excelente.
