Big, thick, dark brown head of fine bubbles. Head lasts for a while also and reduced to a nice cratered surface. Distinct chocolate aroma, along with cola and a hint of coffee. Color is black. Flavor is quite good with a note of chocolate again. The bitterness in the flavor and the finish surprised me though. Was not expecting that. Bitter and dry palate either from the bitter dark chocolate or some hops presence. A good quality "sweet stout" which is not as sweet as you would expect.

Deep dark black with the faintest of mahogany highlights when held up to the light. A rich, lustrous head of cocoa colored froth. Nose of bittersweet chocolate and espresso. Slickly smooth on the palate, full mouth of malty, bittersweet chocolate combining with light coffee notes. Hops ride right in and meet the chocolate head on, achieving an ethereal balance. Superb version.

Had this one on draught. Black as espresso with a gorgeous tan head. Malty, sweet aroma. Strong chocolate flavors with roasted malt and hops flavors. We all loved this one. A great after dinner beer.

Good to drink with a meal. Ebony in color with a thick, creamy dark tan head. Smells like a chocolate bar with a slightly bitter tinge. Leaves a light tan lace. Smooth and creamy, which makes it go down pretty easily. However, I wouldn't recommend drinking this quickly, since it's more like eating a meal than drinking a beer. The amount of hops were perfect to eep it from being overwhelmingly chocolatey. Overall, a delicious find; one that I'll buy again and again.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2010 Updated Rating: Hmm... maybe the first batch I had was bad, or the place i got it at hadn’t cleaned ther tap lines. This one was much better. Same color and head, similar aroma. Chocolate flavor was present with no pungent assault on the palate, just a nice bit of hop bitterness. Overall quite good. Original Rating : 1.8 Aroma 6, Appearance 5, Taste 2, Palate 1, and OVerall 4.Poured a nice dark brown with an awesome tan head. Aroma was of bitter chocolate and hops. Started out pleasant, semi-sweet chocolate flavor...then BAM.. a fucking assault on the palate. Horrible dry, cloying bitterness, lasting into an equally unpleasant aftertaste. Sick, sick, sick beer. The first that i couldnt finish in awhile.

Only my second chocolate stout. The head is an interesting orange-brown. The scent has rich chocolate cake and some malt. It has a thick and creamy mouthfeel. Lots of chocolate, but not so much that it overrides the stout's malt. This is my favoriute Rogue so far. I don't think I would want to drink a lot. However, this is a great change of pace.

Rogue Nation, San Francisco: This stuff pours dark as night with a deep tan head. You can't see thru this one. The aroma is that of a truffle or dark chocolate bar, sweet with hints of bitter. The flavor is soft. Slightly smoky with a strong chocolate taint.

BOTTLE. Creamy tan head, black color. Aroma is roasty and has a lot of chocolate. Flavor is chocolate on top of chocolate. Deliciuous. Has a bit of bitterness at the end which pissibly comes from both the hops and the amount of dark burnt malt that they use in the brewing process. Flavor is also creamy and sweet. Excellent.

Aroma is soooo chocolatey. Very mocha-coffee like. Burnt coffee flavour, but very little else.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Nashville, TN. Brown head, deep brown color. Chocolaty, malty aroma. Creamy. Some coffee and chocolate in the taste. Finished well. A very good Sweet Stout.
