very tasty clone of the Shakespearen stout. The signature Rogue taste doesn’t seem to vary in any of their beers, even in different styles. Dominant flavors of coffee, chocolate, and the silkiness of oats.

On tap this brew pours perfectly, pitch black with a tall tan head. Rich sweet roasty aroma, big chocolate/mocha nose. Taste starts very rich with a smooth bakers chocolate flavor and some nice coffee tones in the finish. Well balanced with a trailing coffee aftertaste. This brew is so much better on tap, very rich and a bit dry.

22oz Bomber. This one pours a nice black color with a great dark brown frothy head with good size. Head retention is good and it leaves a nice brown lacing about the glass. The aroma coming of this one is of heavy chocolate with a slight floral hoppiness mingling about. Some coffee can also be detected in the smell. The taste was excellent all the great qualities of a stout were present with the taste of dark chocolate. It seems the coffee flavor can out on the backside as an after taste; also there was some bitterness present. Mouthfeel was full bodies and creamy. Overall all this is a truly great beer, the chocolate is defiantly there but no overwhelming. This second half of the bomber went great with some good dark chocolate. Highly recommended, rogue does a magnificent job again.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2004 Almost black in colour with very little head. Lots of chocolate in the aroma, but not in the taste. Nice malt taste with a bitter finish and an after taste of chocolate.

badgerben (4854) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Dark, dark brown color with a medium head. Very chocolatey aroma. Solid malt core in the taste with slightly bitter chocolate finish. Not nearly as much chocolate as I was expecting, but it is nicely rounded.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 May 25th 2007 Re-rate <P> Fairly big hop aroma up front mixed with the roasty malt and dark chocolate notes reminds me a lot of the Olfabrikken Porter I had earlier today. The body is ruby/black with a lasting, craggy, mocha colored head. Big chocolate, graham cracker, cocoa, ginger bread (I swear) flavor on the fore. I taste hints of green branches and herbal hop notes int he finish. Smooth with a great mouthfeel, but not even remotely how I remember this beer tasting. <P> Original rating was a 4.1 <P> Tastest JUST like Shakespeare Stout...with Chocolate in it. And that is a GOOOD thing. Great beer.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Enticing aroma of chocolate and hops, very nice stout appearance. Balance is perfect, the chocolate flavors are velvety & elegant and hops finishes nicely bitter. The absolute best chocolate stout, this brew is unique, satisfying and purely dellicioius.

Dark, Thick Brown Coloring With Dark Brown Head. Chocolate Aroma...as if You Were Melting The Chocolate Over The Stove...Very Distinct And Sweet. Taste if Dominantly The Chocolate and it Tastes Very Much Like it Smelled... Hits You Right Away...Then Subsides And You Taste the Roasts and Perhaps a Bit of Hops... Sweet Brew...A Bit Dry Overall.... I Like The Sam Adams Chocolate Bock Better As This One Isn’t Quite as Well Put Together, But If You Go Dollar for Dollar, Pick Up Some Rogue!

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2004
On tap @ Buckeye Brewing Co: Very dark opaque brown w/ a lasting tan head. This beer is like smelling Nestle tollhouse chocolate chips! Some caramel, some espresso notes, but it’s all about the chocolate in this one. Low fruitiness. Very chocolatey flavor w/ some dark grain & hop bitterness. Light roastiness in the finish and has a light hop flavor in the aftertaste. Also has hints of caramel, but again, chocolate dominates. Higher medium carbonation(possibly from being on tap), prickly m/f, medium body and smooth after it warms. Sort of 1dimensional in the fact that the dominant flavor and aroma is chocolate. It pretty much masks a lot of the other malts and grains that were probably used.
