Very dark pour. Frothy chocolate head. Smells like chocolate. Tastes of a strong bitter chocolate, very nice. Very heavy drink, but smooth. Chocolate taste lingers for a while.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2004 Aroma is hoppy at 1st. Once the head diminishes a rich chocolate hershey bar dominates the smell. Black with a brown head. Oh man... it tastes like milk chocolate with a bittersweet hoppy finish. The intitial chocolate taste this offering provides is heavenly. Malty and thick, this brew starts sweet and ends bitter and hoppy. A great beer I will be buying again and again.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2004 BottlePours black with a very thick and creamy tan/mahogany head and very persistant brown lacing. Smells almost like a Hershey bar. I’ve had a few "chocolate" stouts and porters, but this is the most choc smelling. Also aromas of chalk and dust. Flavore is nutty and chocolate up front but lacking a little sweetness that would really fit here. Walnuts, hazelnuts and smokey at the trailer. Feel is not as thick and smoothe as other good examples of the genre but fair. My expecations were a bit high.

Poured VERY dark. Can’t be seen through when holding it righ up to a light. Large brown head with lasting power and some lacing. Kind of smells like baker’s chocolate. Chocolate taste right from the first sip. Finishes with a tingling sensation towards the back of the tongue. Another nice beer from Rogue.

Bottle. Dark brown color with a medium light brown head. You can actually smell the chocolate mixed with the hops. The initial taste in bitter sweet chocolate moving to the nice hoppy finish. The chocolate matches the hops nicely. To bad there was only one bottle there.

Very good sweet stout. Pours black with a very dark thick head. Nice lacing. Good coffee/slight chocolate aroma. Flavor isn’t too sweet, as I expected, but very good. Chocolate/roasted malts really stands out. Slightly bitter/alchol finish. Smooth, great beer.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2006 Some people say this brew is better than the Shakespear Stout. Others say it is more better, and still others say it is more betterest. The last time I had this stout it wasn’t as chocolatey as I remembered it. Before that I would have said it was one of my top 5 brews but now I think it dropped down. Still a really good stout and a must-try.
