Excellent choice for the fine beer drinker who also enjoys rich dark chocolate. Poured that most perfect beer shade, black and head an awesomely brown head to match. The aroma reminded me of.. chocolate, as did the flavor. It tasted like what I would expect carbonated melted dark chocolate to taste like. Awesome

Hands down the best "chocolate" beer I’ve ever tasted. Pitch black in the glass with a tight, creamy tan head. Aroma of bittersweet dark chocolate is rich and hard to miss. Flavor dominated by the bittersweet chocolate with some background espresso and just the right amount of hop bitterness to keep the sweetness in check. Mouthfeel silky smooooth. A superb dessert beer served in a snifter at cellar temp. Great stuff!

Yum. Another delicious brew from Rogue. Poured a beautiful shade of black, with a short-lived brown head. Aroma was a crisp hop note, followed by a tantalizing malty blend of espresso, fruit, and dark chocolate. The flavor at first reminded me of Rogue’s Shakespeare stout, but noticably smoother and somewhat sweeter. This general "stoutiness" then opened into sweet milk chocolate and then bitter dark chocolate notes that formed a perfect finish. Truly delicious, and wonderfully creamy and thick. A new favorite.

Very dark pour. Frothy chocolate head. Smells like chocolate. Tastes of a strong bitter chocolate, very nice. Very heavy drink, but smooth. Chocolate taste lingers for a while.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2004 Aroma is hoppy at 1st. Once the head diminishes a rich chocolate hershey bar dominates the smell. Black with a brown head. Oh man... it tastes like milk chocolate with a bittersweet hoppy finish. The intitial chocolate taste this offering provides is heavenly. Malty and thick, this brew starts sweet and ends bitter and hoppy. A great beer I will be buying again and again.
