Really nice dark chocolate flavor. Seemed overpowering at first; but once the beer warmed up a little, the malt flavors came through, and brought more balance.

SinH4 (274) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2014
Black color with a bit of an amber-brown highlight and beige small head. Aroma is coffee and cocoa beans. Taste is cocoa at the beginning, milky feeling, and then there’s bitterness kicking in with a dry coffee finish. Very well-balanced, one of the better Chocolate Stouts!

Foffern (1301) - Bodø, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a black colour with a beige head. The aroma is dominated by cocoa, coffee, chocolate truffles and burned wood. The flavour has more roasted malt, ash and chocolate in the background. Has a slick and silky mouth feel. A fantastic dessert beer. Nicely roasted and filled with chocolate.

YigSvartka (107) - Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Opaque black. Minimal head. Pungent chocolate, roast, malt, caramel and vanilla aroma. Thick, creamy and smooth. Absolutely delectable. Chocolate, caramel, roast, vanilla and malt all coalesce and formulate a wonderfully smooth and complex flavour that finishes with a mildly bitter hoppy/roast taste. Rogue continues to supplant its competitors.
