Had this on draft at the Grey Lodge in Phila. Now this is a stout!! Nice and chunky with a ton of flavor.

Opaque, chocolate mousse foam, although not particularly enduring. Roasty, chocolaty mocha aroma, with cascade hops noticeable. Smooth and thick mouthfeel, tastes like chocolate milk in the latter half. Mild oatmeal pastiness at the front, while the hops provide nice counterbalance to the thickness and sweetness of the malts. Definitely more chocolaty than Youngs. Just like their Hazelnut Brown this an excellent full flavored effort.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2003 To state the obvious, CHOCOLATE! Yummy delicious chocolate. Sure, theres a dose of hops in here, but this is just totally smooth, easy drinkin" chocolate. Body was a little thinner than I anticipated, but that just made it easier to drink. At Rockinout"s suggestion, we tasted this for dessert with brownies - very nice!

An amazing beer! Huge dark chocolate aroma that carries right through the taste. Feels like Iíve got a chunk of chocolate melting in my mouth. Nice hop balance and a delicious coffee aftertaste. Iíve got to get more of this!

Absolutely one of the best sweet stouts I've ever had! The color was an ominous blackened brown with a dark beige head. The aroma was dominated by bittersweet chocolate, but still had some nice hops (Cascade) citrusy tones, lactic acidity, and a sweet malty character. The flavor was chocolaty, malty, hoppy (more so than the aroma) with just a slight roasted coffee tone. The mouthfeel is this beer's only drawback...it is not bad, just not perfect. A little on the watery side...just needing a little bit more carbonation. The aftertaste is this beer's best asset...pure chocolate goodness...very much like chocolate milk. I figure if you're going to make a chocolate stout, then you might as well go all the way. Rogue hit a homerun with this one!

Great beer, but not as impressive as I thought itíd be, especially considering the brewer. Great thick pour, a true motor oil beer with a dark tan head reminescent of St. Ambroise or perhaps even darker; roasted oatmeal/chocolate aroma with a bitter palate right up front - perhaps strangely íbitterí for the style. Extremely dry finish. THICK. Iím a stout drinker and there was something small left to be desired after this one - Iíll re-rate it in a few weeks just to make sure I didnít catch my palate on a bad day.

The aroma of this one floored me (in a good way!) as soon as I opened the bottle: rich, dark, bitter-sweet chocolate. Pours into a beautiful black colour with a thick coffee-n-cream head. The flavour matches the dark chocolate aroma - oh, so smooth and decadent! Itís joined by a bit of coffee/mocha and a hint of dry hop bitterness in the finish. Outstanding!

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2003 Having visited Oregon a couple of years ago and tried this beer somewhere up or down the coast in a quaint little bar, I was really looking forward to trying this beer again. Pours a think brown head, which dissipated quickly, and the body is black opaque. Strong cocoa and malt aroma. Flavour of a big chuck of chocolate and slight bitter finish, which is good. Very good stout!

Having been disappointed by these guys in the past, I must admit I battle a Rogur prejudice when I sample their brews. This time they do OK - Iím almost charmed by the chaotic, cataclysmic armageddon of this brew as hops, roasts, and strong chocolate duke it out for supremacy. Who wins? hard to say, just roll with the punches into that boxerís drunkeness.

Chocolate, coffee and hops? Black, large cappuccino head, very fine lacing. Incredible chocolate, coffee flavour, and quite hoppy. The chocolate and hops are a marriage! An unusual Stout, extremely enjoyable.
