Pitch black with a medium brown head. Beautiful! Mild sweet milk chocolate aroma with creamy tones. Chocolate, malt and dark fruit in the flavor. Some bitterness in there also. Long lasting bitter chocolate finish. A distinctive Rogue and a true delight to taste a chocolate stout where chocolate really is the penetrating ingredient.

Very drinkable. Very natural and well rounded, not sweet nor bitter. Nicely hopped. RIch medium-full mouthfeel.

THIS IS THE CHOCOLATE STOUT. In all of my years I have not tasted its chocolatey equal. IF intense chocolate flavor is what you seek, seek no more. Very rich, thick, and satisfying. IT would probably go great with some ice cream, you can even make a float. Reminds this cowboy of marshmallows roasting over a FIRE.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
An excellent beer. Poured pitch black with a captivating dark tan head. Nice lacing throughout the session and nice head retention as well. Awesome aroma. Truly smelled like a chocolate covered truffle. Absolutely fantastic! Chocolate! Chocolate! The best chocolate stout I have ever had. Really does a favor to the style! Bittersweet chocolate destroys the hops that are fighting for survival. Some suddle coffee and toffee as well, but mainly just chocolate. This is a perfect dessert beer. Smooth and silky with a nice bitter finish.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2005 Holy cow! This stout rocked my world! Beautiful near-opaque color. Nice head. Welcoming aroma. Strong but super-silky chocolate presence. A great chocolate stout makes me giddy. This one had so much chocolate that I noticed a small ring of chocolate sediment when I finished it. Well worth the cost.

Pours black, brown head, aroma is chocolatey. Flavor is of chocolate and and roasted malt, nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Finishes with the right amount of hopiness. Not as chocolatey as Youngs, but everything here goes very well together, this is a very good brew.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2004
Bottle pours a dark, dark amber - almost black, with a large Florida tan head and fortified lace. The aroma is chocolate, nutty, and vanilla. The flavor is liquid dark bitter chocolate. The palate is as smooth as silk. Overall, this is liquid silky smooth dark bitter chocolate.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2004 Pours opaque with a small brown head. Very chocolatey aroma with some hops in there, too. Sweet, chocoloately flavor with a bit of a hop kick at the end. Nice and thick. Great beer.

Gorbalev (2990) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2004
Bottle. Pitch black pour. Dark brown head that went away quickly. Intense chocolate aroma. Thick mouthfeel with subtle carbonation. Lots of chocolate in taste - real chocolate, not chocolate malt; some bitterness fought its way through the thickness as well. Almost a little too thick overall, but otherwise excellent. Now I’m going to have to break open a cellared young’s to compare.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Poured black with thin, but big bubbled dark brown head...definately hoppy aroma with some coffee and chocolate...aggressive with hops at first, giving way to soft chocolate malts...very hoppy finish...one of the better Rogue beers...
