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.

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.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 23, 2004
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 Isnít Quite as Well Put Together, But If You Go Dollar for Dollar, Pick Up Some Rogue!

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 itís 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.

Aroma: dark and chocolatey Appearance: pitch black with a little head thats very dark. flavor profile: dark chocolate/nutty with a little bittersweet chocolate. Very creamy mouthfeel with a smooth texture. Overall: For one claiming to be a chocolate stout I didnít find much chocolate in it. Still, not a bad stout

JoeMcPhee (9268) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2004
The darkest beer Iíve ever had, completely opaque with a thick dark brown head. Intense, heady, chocolatey aroma. There is a strong musty, dusty smell along with sweet toffee. Flavour is mostly bitter chocolate that lasts into the roasty finish. Incredibly creamy mouthfeel, velvety texture. Finish manages to balance hoppy bitterness, roastiness, and chocolate bitterness. Very tasty.

Deep black color with a thin light brown head. Aroma of chocolate and biscuity malt. Flavor of chocolate, roasted malt and toasted bread. Lasting bitter finish. Full body, powdery texture. It has the distinct signature of a Rogue stout and i like it !

This wonder of a beer (no not wunderbier....wonder of a beer) pours a black as night black color with a thick puffy orange and dark brown head littering my glass. Heavy degrees of carbonation here..a surprising amount. The aroma is lit obviously with heavy chocolate, wood, espresso, cocoa, vanilla and other sweet scents. The flavor is much of the same with heavy dry and gritty chocolates balanced with a nice meld of hops in the finish to end bitter and dry. Some sweet vanillas and chocolate grains finish this heavily carbonated beer as well. Good thick mouthfeel, well rounded, very very dry, but that was to be expected. Nicely done chocolate stout!
