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 .

Near black in color with a few small off white floaties in the lower half of the glass. Fine instant coffee like lid of bubbles. Loads of chocolate aroma. Smoother feel with with chocolate liqueur flavors. Flavors taste to synthetic to me.

Coffee and choclate overpower the nose. Taste is along the same lines. Perfect bitter finish.

Pours a shadowy dark deep brown with a large dark beige head. Great lacing. Aroma has nuts, chocolate and malt. Interesting taste, the chocolate is definitely there.

I was expecting a bit more from this chocolate stout I guess because I didn't enjoy it all that much. It pours with a dark black color, but not completely opaque. The aroma was of slight chocolate and a bit of coffee. The aroma was disappointing as I expected more chocolate being a chocolate stout and all. There was a bit more chocolate in the flavoring, but not all that much. The beer is drinkable - much more than your usual stout - but that's not what I'm looking for. It should be heavy, with complex flavors - but all you get here is a hint of chocolate and a little bit of hops and malt. An interesting brew, and one I might drink again, but not something I'd hunt down.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 Rerate: 3-11-2005. Thick, creamy tan head is initially sizeable but diminishes quickly. Deep black hue is a coffee-brown under the scrutiny of a bright light. Aroma is almost entirely of semi-sweet and milk chocolate. Hints of roast, condensed milk, and peanuts. Ever so slight floral hop aroma. Oily sweetness up front with a tingling blend of carbonation and roasty acidity. Finishes with a distinct malt taste (like whoppers) and a light floral-citric hop profile. Medium body with a very watery texture and moderate carbonation. Metallic/mineral feel to the beer. Wow, has my palate ever changed.

Heavy cookie, chocolate(light and dark), and coffee malt aroma. Hops are almost missing in the nose. Light, sweat yeaty smell with a hint of vanilla perhaps. Average creamy, light-brown head and opaque, black body are very tempting. Flavor starts out extremely sweet and the bitterness and acidity kick up a little at the end. Chocolate all the way through. Creamy, full texture with a moderate amount of carbonation. Almost feels like soda with chocolate syrup added. Thank goodness the cascades are hidden so well. Cake...in a bottle.

Color of dark black chocolate; how fitting... a tight spongy one finger high head of light brown broken chocolate that faded fast and leaves lots of incredible finely stitched lacing leaving rings and layers. Smells like chocolate milk and semi-sweet chocolate chips, rich, sweet, and very chocolatey, yum! Taste is fluffy semi-sweet chocolate and chocolate milk with sweet soda like carbonation with a nice chocolatey sweet twinge, trace of hops, breadish in the finish thats tangy with a light thinning dryness. Favorable to chocolate milk with coco-puffs cereal. What a treat! Feel starts thin, middle favors mildly smooth texture, medium body, and a milky thinning finish of breadish quality. This is one fun drinkable brew. The milk chocolate aspect and character of it is amazing. I'm koo-koo for Rogue Choco-Stout.
