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.

Great coal-black pour, large mocha creamy meringue head. Nose chocolaty indeed; Three Musketeers comes to mind. I like the bittersweet mocha more than Oakes did, but like him I found the bitter/roast a bit much; I guess I would go with Youngs Double Chocolate over this. Long bitter finish, good body; just too harsh and bitter, like many of the brewerís other products.

Not a huge fan of chocolate stouts but it was from Rogue so i figured what the hell. And as usuall a nicely done beer from a great brewery.

Very hopy nose with a little bit of chocolate. Supurb head and lace. Natural chocolate flavoring? Expected more body. Too hoppy for the style.

This is a great stout, with a good chocolate flavor and a nice balance of roasted bitterness and sweetness.

Great beer. Nice and chocolaty, but not as malty as a lot of stouts (not really a bad thing). Could use a bit more hops. This is a stout you could actually drink TWO of.

The color of dark chocolate with a large tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and slight hops. Strong chocolate flavor backed by roasted malt and some hop flavor and bitterness. Quite malty. Full body. Tasty, although I donít think I could drink more than a half pint or so.

Very, very, very chocolate. Great chocolate stout, all it seemed like it was missing was marshmallows!

This is one that I tried really hard to like given itís rather high ranking. I donít know if I got hold of a bad one or not but this was pretty undrinkable but didnít taste "spoiled." Chocolate was overpowered by way bitter hops. Iíll give this one another try when the shock wears off. WOW!
