Pours rich brown, dark mahogany and walnut head with tiny bubbles. Rich Nestle Quik chocolate drink aroma. Flavor is the same, with very tiny hop nose at the end of the swallow. Moutheel is creamyand rich, but not heavy--what I find to be the perfect velvet body for this style. I hope to enjoy this again.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2005 Remarkable. Smells and tastes more like dark chocolate than any other beer Iíve tasted. A fantastic experience. Pours much like used motor oil. Light brown head. Lovely little bubbles. Body is thick - lacing the glass and leaving the bubbles behind. Initial smells are a bit of the roasted malts, mostly chocolate though. And after your first taste, all you smell or taste is the dark chocolate. Itís as if you took a piece of 80% cocoa lindt chocolate and just let it dissolve on your tongue. Delicious. Iím inspired to brew something similar.

On tap at Rogue Brewpub in Portland. Pours black, in the lighting at the pub. Had an awesome aroma of ....sweet chocolate. Great stout to have with vanilla icecream. Chocolatey taste with some bitterness after swallowing. Its not a HUGE stout by any means, but its the most chocolatiest Iíve had thus far. I will have it again.

I thought the aroma was not overpowering, but very delightful. Heavy scent of chocolate, smooth taste and wonderful mouthfeel, and a lovely chocolate-esque aftertaste. I loved this beer, and will be drinking it again when the occasion is right.

The taste is homebrew quality, albeit of the highest degree. I associate this taste with amatuers. It tastes okay, until the aftertaste kicks in. No appreciable aroma, and the appearance is nothing special.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2005
22 oz. bottle. Dark brown with small head. The aroma is definitely chocolaty. There isnít 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.

MayorQuimby (100) - Santa Barbara, California, USA - MAR 3, 2005
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, Iíve 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.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2005
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. Thereís a lot of bitterness from the middle to the finish and it doesnít 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!
