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.

On tap.
Pours a thick dark brown-black; forms a thinnish mocha head that slowly dissipates to a persistent thin layer on top. Beautiful aroma that is at once chocolatey, spicy and a bit piney. Flavor is nice tight baker’s chocolate, medium roast coffee, sweet yet dry malt. Spicy, somewhat piney hops add an interesting element. If someone were to describe to me a chocolate stout with notable piney notes, I’d imagine it tasting kind of gross. But the piney and spicy nature of the hops unexpectedly complements rather than detracts from the base chocolate character. Rogue seems to strike a perfect balance here and my guess is that any attempt by anyone else to replicate it would likely come off tasting awkward. Palate is impossibly smooth as it slides down like a chocolate milkshake. Even though I intended to do a beer-rating marathon during this particular trip to the pub, I ended up ordering round after round of this instead.

Douce, légèrement amer, assez fluide, pas très onctueuse mais pleine d’arômes et saveurs : agrumes, épices, chocolat, notes végétales. Bien balancée et subtile.

650ml bottle. Deep brown/black colour with a nice beige head. Chocolate, sweet, liquorice and oat in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium to full body. Taste is bitter with some sweet chocolate notes. Long dry, bitter and light astringent finish. Overall, a very good beer.

Dark chocolate mainly, sweet, more chocolate.

Pitch black beer with a small off-white head.

Starts undefined sweet, then the sweet chocolate hits. Ends in dark slightly bitter chocolate.

Bottled. Poured into snifter. This is an amazing stout. Big flavors of dark chocolate on the front, back, and everywhere in between. Like eating a savory dark chocolate bar. Delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marrone scura, praticamente nera, schiuma nocciola di buona persistenza. Abbastanza acida, aroma di caffè e cacao, leggero aroma di frutti rossi, zucchero. Al palato sempre acida, prevale il caffè tostato sul cacao amaro, con una bella coda amaricante tostata. Corpo medio leggero, poco carbonata, oleosa.
