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.

Chocolate all the way! Deep brown color. Almost chewy as it warms. Small hop bite at the finish. I had a piece of homemade fudge with my last glass and it was an amazing pairing!

This has a sweet milk chocolatey aroma. The taste is of slightly bitter dark chocolate with a roasted character. Robust palate, but missing that silky smoothness Young’s does so well.

Medium, chocolate syrup type aroma, sort of like a fudgesicle bar (chocolate ice cream) with vanilla and charcoal notes. Slightly bitter, and rather dry. Nice chocolate character, although this one doesn’t come off as smooth as Young’s does.

Smells better than it tastes, I think, as it makes you expect sweetness that just isn’t there. Instead, only dryness to the flavor and a bit of a bitter finish. Not bad, yet I’ve had many a better chocolate stout. This is more like a "cocoa stout".

Tiny, but pretty tan head and nice dark, black color. Smells and tastes like slightly bitter, baker’s chocolate. Maybe a little too bitter. The finish is a bit watery, but leaves a nice chocolate flavor lingering on the tongue. A decent stout.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 9, 2002
A unique specialty brew. Flavors are almost exclusively a convergence of bitter chocolate and northwestern style hopping. Chocolate flavor is somewhere between baker’s and semisweet in sweetness--good because I feared this would be overly sweet. The problem is that gobs of chocolate and hops just don’t go together that well. Good but not great.

Mmmm, double the chocolate, double the fun! I really liked the flavor but I think it somewhat overpowered any other flavors that might be present.

Holy Willy Wonka, Batman! This beer delivers what it promises: chocolate. This is the darkest beer to my recollection. I held it up to a halogen light and could barely see a ruby tint. Anyway, the chocolate favor masks any other ale/stout characteristics.

liquid hershey’s with trademark Rogue hop finish, when novice beer drinkers hear about a choclate stout this is what they imagine, I love this beer!

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2003 Beuatiful rich chocalatey brown offering, including the head too, which by the way was chock full of tiny bubbles and very tightly packed. Dark chocolate and milk chocolate too. Tastes like a rich, creamy hershey kiss. I could drink this all night long. The hops do a good job of balancing out the whole package, but I'll remember it for the chocolate, which is all over the aroma, the flavor and the finish. Later on the same night I drank a half of a Butte creek porter and a bit of a Deschutes Jubelale and I could still taste the Chocolate stout over 'em all!!! Love this stuff!!
