This one blew me away! Rich roast barley aromas and flavours blend beautifully with the chocolate and hops. Outstanding ale.

Almost pours like a synthetic motor oil. Smells like a chocolate factory. Very dark head that dwindled, leaving a smooth and rich feel. YUMMY

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2003
Dark Godiva chocolate brown and thick with a dark froth. Aroma is distinctly chocolate, roasted malt and a little earthy. Very smooth like most good stouts and creamy as well. Hop flavors are present but in the background and flavor is full. This is a very good stout and I'm continually impressed by the high quality brews from Rogue.

Should be renamed Rogue Bitter Java. For me, this is one of those easily obtainable beers that I keep thinking I've already had. This beer is thick and rich with flavor. Hops are more noticeable here than in some other stouts. The roasty and burnt flavors which are offset by a lacto-sweet taste. Nice and balanced, if you care for a well-bittered sweet stout.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2003
Smells like a chocolate malted milkshake - awesome. Deep black liquid with thin foamy brown lacing head - looked like a shot of espresso. Medium carbonation and heavy watery body. Kind of weak in flavor. Roasted burnt smoky malts. Good sourness like bitter coffee. Chocolate. Nice chocolate after with light bitterness. Nice balance and a good stout.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - APR 29, 2003
Deep black hue. Big dark chocolate nose. Dark brown/tan head. Velvety smooth on the tongue, medium to full bodied, raosted/burnt grain, chocolate covered espresso beans. Very drinkable, I would imagine would go well with dessert. Not bad at all.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - APR 27, 2003
Pours a deep opaque black, with a quickly diminishing small creamy tan head which leaves a minimum of lacing. Aroma is nice and full of dark bakers chocolate. Flavor is similar, with dark (maybe a semi-sweet) bakers chocolate being dominant, and a hint of hops bitterness in the end. Body is smooth, creamy, and slick. Goes down quite easy, great with desert, or maybe by itself for desert.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - APR 20, 2003
This beer is fairly rich in flavor, but not thick in flow. Easy to drink, and it has a distinct hint of chocolate, but it is slightly tart as though there are grapes or something hidden in the shaddows. Very enjoyable beer, but the aftertaste is very undesireable.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2010 In a remote mountain village, the chocolate maker’s windows open and crushed sweet chocolate perfumes are liberated to roam across all awakening nostrils...To the villager’s delight, this artisan alchemist stuffs his ample truffles with chunky conifer hops which match the dark chocolate’s bitterness perfectly...Sometimes glazed with light strawberry syrup, his pralines smoothly dissolve to reveal a sublime buttery roastiness...This just makes you want to grab a chair by his window and let the sweet confections come...(And the tap version at Rogue Ales Public House in SanFran was as fantastic!)

Very good. Chocolate aroma with a hint of hops. Taste hits you first with a wave of chocolate and then it is followed by a hoppy, oat taste. Palate is well balanced with good carbonation, bitterness, and creamy texture.
