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.

Totally black with thick beige head. Nice lacing. Strong aroma of sweet chocolate, hint of vanilla and mocha. Good at nose, but taste is even better! Lots of chocolate, coffee with milk and vanilla background. Texture is oily. Full body. Low carbonation. Awesome stout, one of the best I’ve drank.

I wanted more than I got. The aroma is amazing, but aside from that I thought this let me down somehow. It’s not bad, it’s just not good.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
(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!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
