Ebony in color with a rich creamy head. The mellow flavor of oats, chocolate malts, and real chocolate are balanced perfectly with the right amount of hops for a bittersweet finish. Chocolate Stout is brewed with 10 ingredients: Northwest Harrington and Klages, Crystal 135-165 and Beeston Chocolate Malts, Cascade Hops, Rolled Oats and Roasted Barley, Natural Chocolate Flavor, Free Range Coastal Waters and PacMan Yeast.

22 oz. bottle. Dark brown with small head. The aroma is definitely chocolaty. There isn’t much hop bitterness apparent in the aroma but the roast & chocolate could be masking it. The flavor does have some hops to balance the malt and chocolate. If you want a chocolaty beer, get some of this one. Good beer.

Bottle. Dark brown body, tan head, good lacing on my glass. Aroma is nicely malty and kind of smoky, potent. Flavor is malty, lots of chocolate malt, smoke, hop bitterness, a good lingering chocolate taste in the finish. Smooth and creamy, good level of carbonation. Another great stout from Rogue, I’ve had the Shakespeare and have a bottle of the Imperial cellared away to eventually complete the trilogy.

Draft. Blackish beer with a very thin lacing of a beige head. Big chocolate aroma with sweet malt. Sweet chocolate flavor. Easy to drink and very smooth - no harsh flavors.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2006 I had higher hopes for this one. Pours a nice deep black with a pale brownish head. Aroma is inviting...very chocolate like....similar to a a creamy, cafe mocha from Starbucks. There’s a lot of bitterness from the middle to the finish and it doesn’t sit very well with the choco-roastiness....very strange to me. I wanted to like this more. Apr 2005....this bottle is much better...gotta up my ratings a tick or so.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Pours deep ruby black with a pretty layer of tawny brown head. Aromas of smooth chocolate and roasts. The complextion of the chocolate aroma changes as the glass warms. Initially a sweet milk chocolate, and richer, darker chocolate as the glass progresses. Great creamy palate. Good roast and coffee flavors. A surprisingly dry finish, with lingering, bitter dark-chocolate. A solid stout with some nice chocolate notes, rather than a chocolate drink with stout hiding somewhere underneath. Terrific!

Thanks to Mr. Facto for this beer.

Pours black with a fizzy dark brown head, almost as dark as the beer itself. The aroma smells like fresh baked semi-sweet chocolate chips. Probably the chocolatiest aroma I’ve smelled yet. Taste is of some roasted malt with a sweet dark chocolate taste, with very little bitterness. More chocolatey than Young’s Double Chocolate. I can envision it now, some dark brown cartoon character with a strange accent, holding a bottle and saying, "Everyone wants to get a hold of my Rogue Chocolate Stout!" Body feels somewhat thin and undercarbonated, the weakest point of the beer. This may be my top choice for a good examplar of a dessert beer, battling fiercely for the position with Bell’s Special Double Cream Stout. Very nice beer.

Smells like opening a bottle of hershey’s dark. Pours black with a brown head that laces surprisingly well. Flavor is immediately chocolate, both bitter chocolate, and overtones of milky sweet-ness. This is a rich, thick, stout, milk-shake of a beer. Finish is a satisfyingly bitter chocolate. This is a dessert pint for sure.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2005 Delicious chocolatey aroma. Tastes like biting into a big block of dark chocolate. Nice long-lasting, creamy head. Medium-bitter finish.

Smelled like malted hot chocolate on the pour. Deep brown, opaque color, solid amount of creamy tan head. Flavor was outstanding, malts mixed with tons of chocolate. A slightly bitter aftertaste with hints of coffe in the tail end. This might be the best chocolate stout I have had to this point. The best part about this is, I can buy it in New Jersey now.

Holey Chocolate Flavor!! This is superb. Deep dark opaque brown, milk chocolate colored head with a very fragrant chocolate aroma. Can’t really relate the aroma or flavor to any particular type of chocolate, best I can do is say that the true essense of what makes chocolate great is beautifullly presented in this stout. Flavors complement each other very well, slight bitterness to balance the sweet barley and oats. Simply marvelous. Cheers
