COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ebony in color with a rich creamy head. The mellow flavor of oats, chocolate malts, and real chocolate are balanced perfectly with the right amount of hops for a bittersweet finish. Chocolate Stout is brewed with 10 ingredients: Northwest Harrington and Klages, Crystal 135-165 and Beeston Chocolate Malts, Cascade Hops, Rolled Oats and Roasted Barley, Natural Chocolate Flavor, Free Range Coastal Waters and PacMan Yeast.

Very nice strong chocolate aroma. Flavour of burned malt and dry chocolate. Nice smooth and a bit creamy chocolate start, then a clean dry chocolate finish and palate. Very nice! The chocolate is at no time too much, but all the way very well balanced.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Pours with a thick darkish brown head. Quite black in color. The head is so meringue like that I take a bite of it. The head is like biting into the lightest, fluffiest, slightly sweet chocolate mousse. The aroma is strongly of chocolate, it dominates the aroma of this beer. Quite a creamy body, lightly sweet as well. This beer finishes with a bit of dark malt and a subdued bitterness. Just like the aroma, the chocolate is dominant in the taste of the beer as well. It is like eating a dense, rich, creamy chocolate dessert that is only lightly sweet. Very good, though I must say that it seems a bit one-dimensional.

djrevnoir (26) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2004
This beer smells like hot chocolate, a chocolate sundae, and an imperial stout, all at the same time. Extremely dark, light brown head that dissipates rather slowly. Very chocolately flavour, gives way to bitterness in the finish. Hoping the bitterness will dissipate as the beer warms up, but still very, very enjoyable.

Few brewers offer several different recipes within the Stout category, but Rogue does and pulls it of rather well. This is different than their more famous Shakespeare Stout, but has enough going for it to stand on it's own easily. A little less assertive than some Stouts, sweet, chocolatety, and well balanced.

blatz (138) - Palm Beach Gardens, FL, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Malty cool (hot) chocolate -- WOW!! This is what I've been looking for in a stout. Very assertive with chocolate and dry stout background combined. Black with a thick foamy head that lasts the whole beer long. I look forward to this baby every year!! Smells, looks, tastes fantastic!

pivo (2610) - GERMANY - DEC 26, 2003
Jet black with a big spongy tan head. Huge chocolate aroma and taste. Just amazing how much chocolate they were able to infuse in this. Pretty insane, but fun and enjoyable. Go, Rogue!

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2003
Roasty chocolate aroma. Poured a very dark black, nearly opaque. Flavor was chocolaty, roasty, and finished with a strong prescence of coffee. Fairly big body. Quite enjoyable.

Hangover (1083) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - DEC 24, 2003
Wow. Dark black color, wonderful thick reddish head that leaves some fantastic lace. Inviting chocolate aroma. Taste is dramatic. Chocolate goodness with light carbonation and not at all thin like some other stouts. Slightly bitter finish. Better than sam smiths oatmeal in my opinion, which is just a tad too sweet. I really enjoyed this.

Always a favourite, but the amount of choclate is very different each time I have it on bottle and draught.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2009 aaahhh, what a wonderful nose. It’s like a dream, swimming in a swimming pool full of chocolate - it smells soooooo good. Roasted chocolate taste, not sweet but smooth. Nice outfit - cute hazelnut brown layer on pitch black syrupy brew. Rated 3.9 Public Ale House- Downtown Portland - Nov. 2008: You gotta do hat you gotta do - I have to say this is a 5 - you know - screw it - heck yes- why not. Pitch black color, small head. Amazing 75 % Choclate taste. Long lasting. It is like melting a nice quality chocolate bar in your mouth 24 hours straigt. Toally love it.
