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.

Alengrin (1380) - BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2014
Chocolate stout with thick, beige, creamy head and dark mahogany colour, approaching black. Aroma strongly dominated by cocoa powder, toffee and chocolate bars, some coffee and dark fruits as well; very chocolatey taste, like a fluid bar of bitter chocolate, powdery, soft mouthfeel, oats and cocoa powder, sweetish and yeasty but assertively roasted bitter in the end with leafy hops. Great if you like chocolate.

Douberd (2232) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2014
(Rogue Chocolate Stout) Bottle 650 ml at home, poured into a snifter. ABV 6.5 on the importer’s sticker. Totally black colour on the body, very thick as I pour it. Small brown head, maybe half a finger in size, no more than that. Average retention, minimal lacing left behind along with a foam island on the surface. Aroma is full of chocolate, very lactic, oats, light mocha. Very appealing and inviting. Dessert in a glass. Lots of chocolate and all kinds of it. Milky chocolate, dark bitter chocolate, chocolate fudge. All the sweetness balances out on the finish with light roasted malts and a nice, mild bitterness that brings again in mind chocolate. Fantastic! Medium thick body, notable carbonation. Sticky palate. Truly great beer!

mike_77 (3037) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2014
Aroma of slightly charred, roasted malts. The chocolatey tones also come through as the beer comes up to temperature. Flavour is roasty and has some light coffee too. Pleasantly chocolatey in the finish and aftertaste.

77ships (3737) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2014
Sampled @ Gents Bierfestival 2014. 650 ml. bottle. Spare mocha frothy head. Lightly cloudy blackish dark brown. Smell is creamy eastern European chocolate, sugar sugar, vanilla, mocha,..; Taste is sweet, cookies, sweet, sugar, above all creamy eastern European chocolate, chocolate sauce, mocha, vanilla,.. Creamy lighter body. Very nice chocolate beer not top because it still doesn’t accomplish tasting like high quality Belgian chocolate (not sure if any beer has managed doing that) but very enjoyable all the same of course.

Cenzura (21) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Aroma: Dark chocolate with great dose of vanilla. The roasted malts takes only small part in overall smell. First impression - very good. Taste: Dark chocolate with very balanced bitterness on the foreground, but a couple second later vanilla joins them and it taste like classy pralines. You can feel a little bit of orange peel and bananas. There is also something like toffee candys. I think that classic chocolate muffin will be the best choice for that beer. To sum up, very good beer, and if you like chocolate stouts it have to take part on your shopping list. Price: [Warsaw, Poland] 34 PLN = 8 Euros
