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.

This beer is fairly rich in flavor, but not thick in flow. Easy to drink, and it has a distinct hint of chocolate, but it is slightly tart as though there are grapes or something hidden in the shaddows. Very enjoyable beer, but the aftertaste is very undesireable.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2010 In a remote mountain village, the chocolate maker’s windows open and crushed sweet chocolate perfumes are liberated to roam across all awakening nostrils...To the villager’s delight, this artisan alchemist stuffs his ample truffles with chunky conifer hops which match the dark chocolate’s bitterness perfectly...Sometimes glazed with light strawberry syrup, his pralines smoothly dissolve to reveal a sublime buttery roastiness...This just makes you want to grab a chair by his window and let the sweet confections come...(And the tap version at Rogue Ales Public House in SanFran was as fantastic!)

Very good. Chocolate aroma with a hint of hops. Taste hits you first with a wave of chocolate and then it is followed by a hoppy, oat taste. Palate is well balanced with good carbonation, bitterness, and creamy texture.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2003
Pours a luscious black color with a thick dark beige head. Nice lacing as well. Aroma of chocolate and malt. Medium-bodied with a nice bitter dark chocolate taste throughout, along with malt and caramel. The finish is lightly hopped, but has a sweet aspect as well. I am surprised it took me so long to try this.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2003
Deep black color with a thick carmel colored head. Smells very sweet and chocolatey. Smooth all the way through on this one. The malt is balanced with the cascade hops to make it slightly bitter, but not too thick. Does indeed have somewhat of a truffle finish.

Bottled (at the Rate Beer gathering at Flying Saucer, Addison).
Dark black with pale brown head. Rich miulk chocoalte aroma. Roasty, soft and very creamy, but with sharp tarry bitter finish.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 23, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2003 Wow, chocolate cake and frosting more than a chocolate bar, to my taste. Long bitter chocolate, with milder hops and a milder palate than I've come to expect from Rogue. First rating: 8-4-8-4-14 = 3.8 // Re-rate at GBBF. I'm at my daughter's birthday party, and there's the chocolate cake...but I only get to eat the frosting....

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Bottle. Dark as hell, big tan head. Smells wonderful - damn near like a hershey bar with some coffee grounds. Can't find much fault here! The chocolate flavors compliment the roasted maltiness perfectly. Outstanding.

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!
