COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ebony in color with a rich creamy head. The mellow flavor of oats, chocolate malts, and real chocolate are balanced perfectly with the right amount of hops for a bittersweet finish. Chocolate Stout is brewed with 10 ingredients: Northwest Harrington and Klages, Crystal 135-165 and Beeston Chocolate Malts, Cascade Hops, Rolled Oats and Roasted Barley, Natural Chocolate Flavor, Free Range Coastal Waters and PacMan Yeast.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2007 Light chocolate aroma, black color with a deep tan head. Flavor is rich and chocolatey, caramel is there as well as a very tasty sweet finish. Nice sweet stout, very well defined. ReRate: Black color, creamy tan head and moderate lacing. The head is made up of a thin cap but large bubbles underneath pushing through. The aroma is full of cocoa baking powder (not sweet) with some roasted coffee. The flavor is well balanced with lots of carob and musty semi-sweet dark dark chocolate. The finish feels like non-sweetened chocolate as well. Good sweet stout, I like!

Like Youngs Double Chocolate Stout, its a bit gimicky. Sweet vanilla and chocolate flavour to start off with. The finish is quite roasty, with some bitter chocolate and then the mandatory hoppyness of Rogue beers kicks in. It had lots of flavour, and i quite enjoyed it, but i'm not quite sure it knew which direction it wanted to go. But...tasty. (Cask GBBF 03')

A very, very good beer, but not my fave in the Rogue lineup (Dead Guy Ale takes that place). Rich, sweet, and very dark with a clean taste, this brew is a great one to share with friends!

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2003 Gotta redo this one. Not sure what's going on with it. I remember it being better than the bottle I'm drinking now. I like the Shakespeare Stout from Rogue much more than this. Though it is still a solid offering, just isn't quite as good as I want it to be.

The aroma, quite simply, is pure chocolate. Great. Flavours are good too, very smooth chocolate, sweet, earthy and creamy. Some roast malts as expected. Good alcohol vapours on the finish. I prefer Youngs Double Choc - but this is still fine.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2003
nice and black with a tan head and some nice lacing. Chocolatey, sweet malty aroma. Strong chocolate flavor, with a hint of coffee and roasted malt and nice and sweet. This is a freakin good beer, but probably best for an after dinner thing.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - AUG 9, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2003 I'm so glad I just found this close to my house. For pure enjoyment, this gets 5 out 5 stars. I friend brought some over last week for my birthday party, and I was in love from first sip. It smells like choclate milk. It tastes like chocolate espresso with cream. Mouthful is thick and creamy. Initial malty chocolatey sweetness followed by bitter, burnt aftertaste. Kind of like a Young's Double Chocolate Stout on steroids.

RichardGretton (4247) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2003
A dark beer but thinner than most stouts with a deep vanilla aroma. Very bitter flavour with slight after hints of chocolate. A decent chocolate stout but nothing more.

Ungstrup (29281) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2003
A black beer with a fine dark brown head. The aroma is powerful sweet and dominated by chocolate. The flavor has a soft sweet start, then the chocolate hits you and it ends on a bitter chocolate note combined with sweetness. It tastes just as the best bitter chocolates I've had. A great beer.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 6, 2003
Black as tar color,nice small but creamy brown head that lasted for quite awhile.The first whiff of this brew is astonishingly hops,with a mild fruit hint and the chocolate comes in last place.The malty aroma is quite subdued and faint,but there is definately a sweet qualitity coming through.It might just be that it's still a little colder then it should be for optimum aroma.Definately warmed up enough now,The chocolate comes through very loud and clear almost to the point of drinking nestle quick(chocolate of course)the hops aren't as prolific as they where in the aroma and there is no fruit in this that i can make out.The after taste is what else but chocolate with a slight bitter side to it and maybe some hops but it's hard to say with such an overwhelming amount of chocolate in the way it manages to stay quite hidden.I've never been a real big chocolate fan but this is something i could definately drink a lot of.It very well done and even though one sided IMO it is quite good.Well worth trying .
