UPDATED: MAR 26, 2003 You can't ask for a better looking stout than this: black with a large, thick chocolate-brown head that leaves behind nice lacing. Very pleasant cocoa aroma with a coffee bean background. Flavor is a mix of bittersweet chocolate and roasted malt, finish is moderately bitter (from coffee, not so much from hops). Very nice, and worth a try. Gracias, iguanatom!

Very complex chocolate. Used Motor Color (awesome in the pint glass!). From start to finish you'll experience everything from bitterness to sweetness. Excellent bodied flavor and when let to warm to about 45-50 it just gets better.

Ernest (6162) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2010 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is opaque black (flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (chocolate, roasted grain, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot), with notes of chalk, vanilla. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The body is a bit thin and watery, but otherwise itís reasonably solid. Chocolate aroma isnít the best, and honestly the beer would probably be better without the addition. Couldnít ask for a better appearance from a stout though...lasting head and opaque black.

Awesome! This may possibly be the best beer I have ever had. The chocolate is richer than expected, but it works in this beer. Full bodied, dark, slightly chewey. Goes well with cheese (really).

A dark complex stout thout would have been much better without artificial chocolate flavouring. Rogue Chocolate Stout is a bottle conditionned stout with the appropriate yeast deposit at the bottom of the bottle - also clouding the beer a bit in the glass. It has a moderately thin to medium mouth feel for a sweet stout and is lightly hopped for a Rogue ale.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 11, 2003
Poors like oil, rich, black and beautiful. An amazing chocolate colored lace. Great chocolate aroma that has maybe a hint of toffee. After the pour and getting a whiff of that heavenly aroma I thought this might become my favorite beer of all time. Starts off with lots of sweet chocolate maltieness that is superb, but a hoppy bitterness comes too strongly and doesnt do a great job of blending with the chocolate. Finishes with a some what strange combonation of sweet chocolate and hoppy bitterness. Still a very good beer, if only the hops were toned down this could be nectar for the gods.

scottsaxman (2) - USA - MAR 10, 2003 does not count
So dark and rich, light barely filters through to let you see the true color. Wonderful aroma, a good thick head, a massive presence in your mouth, and the lingering taste of dark chocolate after you swallow. Almost makes Guinness seem thin. Buy two, share with a friend.

Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2003
Chocolate! They were not kidding this stuff smells of chocolate, it is black as pure black chocolate with a good looking thick milk chocolate head that hangs on a very long time and it has a permanent lace. Sweet malt balanced with bitter chocolate and hops, that hint of coffee is really roast barley and it helps to dry out this sweet stout out. A very drinkable beer. Get it, its good
