UPDATED: NOV 4, 2006 By smelling the aroma on this baby my mouth has begun to already salivate. It reminds me of a moist German chocolate cake. Pitch black and a pinky/tan head that leaves behind a minimum amount of lacing. Flavor is easy on the tastebuds and palate. Some chocolate, vitamin D milk, and little hint of coffee bean used. Oily texture and little bit creamy, very well rounded. YuMmy! Update 11-4-06 from a 4.2 rating now to a 4.8

Black. A 100 watt bulb will not shine through a 3 inch collumn of this stuff. Thick, foamy head that lasts. Nose is chocolate and juniper berries, olives. Flavor is intense chocolate with plum/prune overtones, and a chalky beginning. Finishes lingering chocolate.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2004
This poured out of the bottle like Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup, except that it had a soapy, sudsy brown head. The aroma is mainly chocolate with roasted malts followed by a splash of coffee. This is extremely creamy in the mouth. The taste is chocolate and malts, a touch of coffee and anise, and a light hit on the hops. Dry finish. Tasty stuff.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Pours a dark dark almost black borwn, small medium brown head. Aroma is dominated by milk choclate. Flavor is tons of choclate, and roasted coffee finish. This is "my kinda beer"!

changxao (104) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Pours a dark opaque brown with a brown head. Aroma is malty with strong chocolate notes. Flavor is malt and bittersweet chocolate. Palate is rich and full, but is a little dry considering the style, makes a great desert beer.

One of the most unique aromas in all of beer. A very good stout to start dessert off right.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2004 Bomber. Beautiful black pour and creamy tan head, and all downhill from there. Chocolate and bitter hops and not much else. I guess Rogue uses the same nasty tasting bitter hops in all their brews and this one doesnt have enough other flavors to overcome it. At least the Shakespeare had enough flavor to hide the nasty hops. This was way off balance....... To keep from pouring out over half a bottle, I mixed in a couple shots of sweet blackcurrant nectar... the improvement was astonishing.. brought the sweetness up to a level to balance the bitterness, added another flavor to mute the chocolate, and this became not half bad....
