UPDATED: DEC 6, 2004 Bomber. Beautiful black pour and creamy tan head, and all downhill from there. Chocolate and bitter hops and not much else. I guess Rogue uses the same nasty tasting bitter hops in all their brews and this one doesnt have enough other flavors to overcome it. At least the Shakespeare had enough flavor to hide the nasty hops. This was way off balance....... To keep from pouring out over half a bottle, I mixed in a couple shots of sweet blackcurrant nectar... the improvement was astonishing.. brought the sweetness up to a level to balance the bitterness, added another flavor to mute the chocolate, and this became not half bad....

very tasty clone of the Shakespearen stout. The signature Rogue taste doesn’t seem to vary in any of their beers, even in different styles. Dominant flavors of coffee, chocolate, and the silkiness of oats.

On tap this brew pours perfectly, pitch black with a tall tan head. Rich sweet roasty aroma, big chocolate/mocha nose. Taste starts very rich with a smooth bakers chocolate flavor and some nice coffee tones in the finish. Well balanced with a trailing coffee aftertaste. This brew is so much better on tap, very rich and a bit dry.

22oz Bomber. This one pours a nice black color with a great dark brown frothy head with good size. Head retention is good and it leaves a nice brown lacing about the glass. The aroma coming of this one is of heavy chocolate with a slight floral hoppiness mingling about. Some coffee can also be detected in the smell. The taste was excellent all the great qualities of a stout were present with the taste of dark chocolate. It seems the coffee flavor can out on the backside as an after taste; also there was some bitterness present. Mouthfeel was full bodies and creamy. Overall all this is a truly great beer, the chocolate is defiantly there but no overwhelming. This second half of the bomber went great with some good dark chocolate. Highly recommended, rogue does a magnificent job again.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2004 Almost black in colour with very little head. Lots of chocolate in the aroma, but not in the taste. Nice malt taste with a bitter finish and an after taste of chocolate.

badgerben (4630) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Dark, dark brown color with a medium head. Very chocolatey aroma. Solid malt core in the taste with slightly bitter chocolate finish. Not nearly as much chocolate as I was expecting, but it is nicely rounded.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 May 25th 2007 Re-rate <P> Fairly big hop aroma up front mixed with the roasty malt and dark chocolate notes reminds me a lot of the Olfabrikken Porter I had earlier today. The body is ruby/black with a lasting, craggy, mocha colored head. Big chocolate, graham cracker, cocoa, ginger bread (I swear) flavor on the fore. I taste hints of green branches and herbal hop notes int he finish. Smooth with a great mouthfeel, but not even remotely how I remember this beer tasting. <P> Original rating was a 4.1 <P> Tastest JUST like Shakespeare Stout...with Chocolate in it. And that is a GOOOD thing. Great beer.
