UPDATED: JAN 31, 2010 Updated Rating: Hmm... maybe the first batch I had was bad, or the place i got it at hadn’t cleaned ther tap lines. This one was much better. Same color and head, similar aroma. Chocolate flavor was present with no pungent assault on the palate, just a nice bit of hop bitterness. Overall quite good. Original Rating : 1.8 Aroma 6, Appearance 5, Taste 2, Palate 1, and OVerall 4.Poured a nice dark brown with an awesome tan head. Aroma was of bitter chocolate and hops. Started out pleasant, semi-sweet chocolate flavor...then BAM.. a fucking assault on the palate. Horrible dry, cloying bitterness, lasting into an equally unpleasant aftertaste. Sick, sick, sick beer. The first that i couldnt finish in awhile.

Only my second chocolate stout. The head is an interesting orange-brown. The scent has rich chocolate cake and some malt. It has a thick and creamy mouthfeel. Lots of chocolate, but not so much that it overrides the stout's malt. This is my favoriute Rogue so far. I don't think I would want to drink a lot. However, this is a great change of pace.

Rogue Nation, San Francisco: This stuff pours dark as night with a deep tan head. You can't see thru this one. The aroma is that of a truffle or dark chocolate bar, sweet with hints of bitter. The flavor is soft. Slightly smoky with a strong chocolate taint.

BOTTLE. Creamy tan head, black color. Aroma is roasty and has a lot of chocolate. Flavor is chocolate on top of chocolate. Deliciuous. Has a bit of bitterness at the end which pissibly comes from both the hops and the amount of dark burnt malt that they use in the brewing process. Flavor is also creamy and sweet. Excellent.

Aroma is soooo chocolatey. Very mocha-coffee like. Burnt coffee flavour, but very little else.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Nashville, TN. Brown head, deep brown color. Chocolaty, malty aroma. Creamy. Some coffee and chocolate in the taste. Finished well. A very good Sweet Stout.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Dark black color with a tan colored head, a touch of lacing as the head dissipates. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate, sweet. Flavor is full of chocolate and malt, relatively sweet and smooth. Palate could be a little thicker. A good stout, I like.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 25, 2004
Pours thick black with a dark tan fluffy head. Good lacing. Smells of bitter cocoa. At first taste chocolate hits you then the bitterness sets in and stays in your mouth long after the sample is over. The bitterness is of unsweetened cocoa and goes great with sweet chocolate. Not and everyday beer but one I should have more often.

Tessic (913) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2004
Pours black w/ a dark brown head. Smells like "Quik" fake chocolate with a slight flowery bouquet and maybe some cherry notes. First taste tasted like it smelt...Fake, cheap chocolate. Nice rich malt flavour finishing with a slight flavour of roasted coffee. Palate... leaves flavour of roasted malts and that bad taste of chocolate again. If you can overlook the Quik flavour this stout isn't too bad but I couldn't. This doesn't even come close to something like a Youngs Double Choc Stout.

THis beer had an amazing chocolate mocha aroma. The chocolate taste was VERY sweet. I just couldn't handle drinking more than about 6 ounces. It was sweet to the point of almost making me feel a little sick.
