3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep, dark brown with a large creamy tan head which lingers a bit.........aroma is chocolate, raisins (Chunky bar?) ........taste is rich chocolate, coffee aftertaste, dates but far too thin for the amount of flavor. Needs mouthfeel, body, chewiness whatever you want to call it....far too much flavor to be so thin.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thought it would be closer to a imperial stout, but this one lacks the full, thick richness of a good RIS. Chocolate and some coco. Thin palate and very bitter. Should not be their highest ranking beer.

This isnít a. Bad beer, but itís not a great beer either. It pours a deep silky black with a thick tan head. The aroma is very straight forward- lots of chocolate notes with subtle smoke. This smokiness carries through in the taste, as does the chocolate. Initially very sweet, with a creamy mouthfeel. The fi ish is weird though with a hoppy bitterness that I donít get. One minute Iím tasting yummy chocolatey goodness and then this weird bitterness?? Sort of strange. But up to the finish this is a great beer. I wish theyíd tweet it a bit and fix the finish,

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells like milk chocolate candy (M&Mís). Small head, but nice rings of light brown lacing. Tastes more roasty than I anticipated. Fairly bitter finish. Some acid. Nice beer; not amazing. Not understanding the high overall rate.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is acidic. Metallic. A hint of chocolate. Oatmeal. Lighter. Sweet
Looks fine. Tan head. Black.
Taste is very sweet like aspartame note. Chocolate on the finish. Like a milk chocolate. Acidic on the finish. Decently balanced but so dry. Hops hops hops on the finish.
Palate is.... Not so good. Super dry and lingering hops on the finish. Itís a chocolate stout... Shouldnít be hops on the finish. Medium light body.
This is beer is ok.... The taste is good but the palate is rough. The hops on the finish are really not what Iím looking for in a chocolate stout. Had this in the same sitting as a founders breakfast and that was def better.

Big bottle, served in TeKu. Pours gently with thick, creamy and beige head. Aroma is toffee, some vanilla, chocolate and subtle coffee. Very creamy and pleasant. Taste is quite dry with lots of chocolate, roasted malts, some coffee, oily texture. I think more sweetness would correspond well with soft mouthfeel, otherwise beer seems a little bit too dry for me. Anyway, its another great beer from Rogue, extremely enjoyable.
