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.

Portion of a 22 oz bottle into a regular glass. A: Pours a dark burgundy color with good opacity. The head is a two finger mocha shade. Good lacing is left down the glass. S: There’s a decent chocolate character backed by some roasted malts and citrusy hops. The chocolate is sweet, though a touch off putting. Far from bad, though. T: Chocolate gives way to a roasted barley finish, laced with some bitter hops. It strikes a better balance than the double version. All in all, the flavor profile is simple, but not cloying. M: It’s dry and light...at first. This initial sensation cleanses the chocolate sweetness well, however it doesn’t fully clean it up. Therefore, it strikes me as unfocused, as it’s caught between ’dessert beer’ or ’drinkable dry stout’. Drinkable, though. O: This would make a rock-solid everyday stout if it were A) in 6 packs and B) less expensive. It’s still a decent offering, and better than the double.

I am glad that I tried this. I love dark chocolate stouts, and this did’t let me down. Very dark appearance with a mocha-tan head. Taste of chocolate malts, caramel, a little coffee, light hops...very tasty. More on the sweet side versus bitter. This is something I would surely buy again, especially if they sell it in 6-packs.

Pours black with a large tan head. Nose shows milk chocolate, dry roast, cocoa. Similar flavours, loads more dry roast, a fair bit of bitterness but some sweet milk chocolate too.

Always a classic in their series. Good chocolate notes and flavors. The stout is rich and creamy. Exactly what it says it will be. No surprise rogue is rated so highly across the board.

On tap at Café Gaspar. Tobacco aroma, with hints of overripe fruit and custard sauce. Tasty and full of flavor with tobacco, and chocolate flavor. High acidity, a little bit ashy. Long aftertaste .
