4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2014 Does it get any better than this??? My goodness. Bomber at The Ginger Man, Houston. This baby is full of chocolate and roasted aroma. Strong Chocolate and roasted malt taste, very sweet and mildly bitter. My favorite sweet stout, nay, my favorite stout out there. Perhaps my favorite beer, period. So good I bought another bomber at the Ginger Man! Bravo, Rogue.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
- schöne fast schwarze Farbe
- Aromen nach Schoko und Vanille, mit einer wunderbaren
Intensität, wie ich sie selten bei einem Bier erlebt habe
- leicht ölige Konsistenz mit optimaler Kohlensäurebeigabe
- eine leichte Grundbitternis begleitet das Bier geschmacklich
so perfekt, dass es nie ins unangenehm Süße abrutscht
- auch im Abgang bleibt das Ganze unverändert in Balance
Fazit: Stout At It’s Best

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of chocolate (of course) some coffee and fruit notes also present. The body is dark black and a creamy dark tan head. The flavor is all chocolate, it seems to change from a bitter dark to a sweeter lighter chocolate as it goes down. Overall a pretty nice beer so if you like chocolate and beer this one is for you.

Bottle, 650mL. Home. A shining black beer with a medium beige foamy head ; average retention. Roasty nose, chocolate, light coffee, herb, cereal. Medium dry bitter refreshing ; sweet note. Medium body, thin creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter dry chocolate lasting finish. Overall, great ! Not so sweet.

Disappointing as I really enjoy their double version. Pours dark with small brown head. Aroma is the best part with chocolate dominating as expected among the roast. Flavor does not follow. Initial chocolate fights to remain known through the sip, while semi-sour notes, and not quite matching hop bitterness takes over. Finish is a little biting. Could be smoother and sweeter to be enjoyable for me.

Poured into a Guinness pint glass the head reaches about 3 fingers of a pillowy khaki colored head which dissipates in moderate timeliness. The aroma and flavor are sensually potent for a fat man like me because this is the first sweet stout that emphasizes the cocoa flavor deftly. The creamy mouthfeel adds a milkshake quality that denotes greatness for a one-of-kind dessert stout.

Bottle in wine glass. Pours black with a medium- carbonation leaving low anticipation. The aroma is good though. Dense with chocolate and roasted coffee. Taste is rather balanced with an initial fruity note that is sedated once finishing the bottle.

Rogue’s Chocolate Stout is one of the finest examples of Pacific Northwest American craft ales -- it is exactly what you might imagine a great chocolate stout to be.
Earthy strength, full-bodied, and little sour, this isn’t a softened stout like brews that rely on nitrogen or lactose. The high alcohol content is a little easier to detect in this beer than smoother stouts, which can be disappointing to some. A hearty, powerful brew for those who are looking for exactly that (like me ;).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear black, with solid, dark head. Chocolate and oats in aroma, with a note of coffee. It’s sweet, slightly sour and roasty from dark malts. Body is medium, with medium-high carbonation. Low biterness, but it is not a con in this type of beer. Overall it’s a great chocolate stout, but I slightly prefer Samuel Smith’s, because of higher sweetness and still maintaing better drinkability (probably because of softer carbonation).
