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.

TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - MAR 13, 2006
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.

On tap at beertemple, amsterdam. Body is pitch black, head is big, brownish, creamy, mostly lasting, excellent lacing. Nose is cocoa, flavor is chocolate, mild coffee, brown sugar. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Finish is long lasting dark chocolate, later quite hoppy as well. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Excellent dessert beer, tons of chocolate, not too sweet, great one.

alteregoo (235) - POLAND - APR 26, 2015
Piwo ładnie prezentuje się w szkle, bujna drobna piana oblepiająca szkło. Z butelki czuć mleczną czekoladę, kakao i kawę wiedeńską. Po przelaniu aromat czekolady Milka i czekolady Lindt przenikają się sprawiając troszkę mdlące odczucie. W smaku ciekawie - nie jest sodko, dość treściwie, lekko popiołowo, szorstko, nieduże drobne nasycenie. Bazą smakową oczywiście deserowa szwajcarska czekolada, pozbawiona zbędnego cukru czy kwaskowatości - czysty czekoladowo-kakaowy smak, któremu towarzyszy delikatna paloność, kawa zbożowa i wyraźna ziołowo-żywiczna goryczka od chmielu Cascade. W afterteasie doszukać się można nawet zakamuflowanych owoców tropikalnych i rodzynek. Alkohol niewyczuwalny. Choć jest to Sweet Stout, to trzeba zaznaczyć, że świetnie zbalansowany i idący w kierunku wytrawności, bardziej pijalny niż zalepiający.

Fashawn (371) - Montesarchio, ITALY - APR 26, 2015
Ottima. Odore di cacao in polvere e cannela,pulito ma intensissimo e bellissimo. Cacao dolce in bocca.che tende al fondente sul finale,con sentori di orzo tostato. Beverina e quasi liscia,una delle stout piů buone mai bevute.

Wonderful dark chocolate aroma and taste. Not aggressively bitter or sweet, just chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. And malt. And a hint of roasted coffee.
