Awesome! This may possibly be the best beer I have ever had. The chocolate is richer than expected, but it works in this beer. Full bodied, dark, slightly chewey. Goes well with cheese (really).

A dark complex stout thout would have been much better without artificial chocolate flavouring. Rogue Chocolate Stout is a bottle conditionned stout with the appropriate yeast deposit at the bottom of the bottle - also clouding the beer a bit in the glass. It has a moderately thin to medium mouth feel for a sweet stout and is lightly hopped for a Rogue ale.

Poors like oil, rich, black and beautiful. An amazing chocolate colored lace. Great chocolate aroma that has maybe a hint of toffee. After the pour and getting a whiff of that heavenly aroma I thought this might become my favorite beer of all time. Starts off with lots of sweet chocolate maltieness that is superb, but a hoppy bitterness comes too strongly and doesnt do a great job of blending with the chocolate. Finishes with a some what strange combonation of sweet chocolate and hoppy bitterness. Still a very good beer, if only the hops were toned down this could be nectar for the gods.

So dark and rich, light barely filters through to let you see the true color. Wonderful aroma, a good thick head, a massive presence in your mouth, and the lingering taste of dark chocolate after you swallow. Almost makes Guinness seem thin. Buy two, share with a friend.

Chocolate! They were not kidding this stuff smells of chocolate, it is black as pure black chocolate with a good looking thick milk chocolate head that hangs on a very long time and it has a permanent lace. Sweet malt balanced with bitter chocolate and hops, that hint of coffee is really roast barley and it helps to dry out this sweet stout out. A very drinkable beer. Get it, its good

Pitch black with a large tan head. Looks very appetizing. Chocolate aroma initially with floral hops aroma coming through. Taste is, well, it is their Shakespeare Stout with a small amount of chocolate in it, a very hoppy stout. Bitter finish.

Willy Wonka watches in horror as this reviewer slips on chocolate froth and falls into a great river of Rogue Chocolate Stout. Aroma and flavor are easy: chocolate. I'm not talking about chocolate malts here; I'm talking about real, actual, chocolate. A unique experience. Although I agree with several of the reviews that this beer is one dimensional, this fact does not hurt my rating of this interesting concoction. I'll have to pick up their Shakespeare Stout soon. Good stuff!

Thick dark pour with a creamy head. Strong aroma of hot chocolate (almost wanted to put marshmallows in it) is matched by the initial flavour. I'm sure I could detect the oats through the middle. Bitter finish with a lingering chocolate aftertaste. Mighty fine chocolate stout.
