Excellent chocolate flavor along with a plesant bitterness. A must try for stout lovers and chocolate lovers.

Who melted godiva chocolate in my stout? Seriously, I have never had such a chocolatey beer in my life, with just the right level of sweetness. Followed by a slightly roasted aftertaste, this could be used to convert anyone who says they don’t like beer (and likes chocolate). They won’t believe this is beer. Just a bit too bubbly for a stout, though. Unique nonetheless.

Two words, CHOCHO-LATE. This is one of the most chocolaty creations ever, very nice. I can’t wait to try it again.

This is probably the best stout made in the US. Loaded with chocolate malt and very hoppy for a stout. Balanced out very nicely with no bitter aftertaste whatsoever due to the overhopping. A meal.

Not similar to Young’s Double Chocolate stout which was a lot better.

Rogue makes some very nice stouts, but I still feel that the hop flavours should be a little more subtle. Even so, this beer is tremendous.

One hell of a beer! Malty/chocolately flavor is very satisfying. Not cloying and nicely balanced.

This was a heckuva stout. I love chocolate and I love stouts.... a perfect match for me.

Another Rogue treat! A complex stout with bitter and sweet flavors. The chocolate was very apparent, but not overwhelming. The bitterness lingers a long time after finishing. The chocolate and malty flavors compliment each other nicely. Note, this is a heavy brew. I split a 22oz with a friend and I was too full to have anymore beer (and this was my first one). So be sure to drink this on a weeknight when you’re just going to have one. Enjoy!
