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.

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).

0.65l bottle from The George and Dragon, Barcelona - shared with my girlfriend. It pours a deep dark brown one with a really good looking dark brown chocolate top. The aroma is just like smelling a chocolate bar. don’t think I’ve nosed a beer as chocolaty as this in, oh, I don’t know how long. Lovely milky chocolate with mocha and cocoa powder. Kinda sweet and caramelly also, but the chocolate is just so overwhelmingly nice. The mouthfeel is light oily and the carbonation level is below average. The chocolate is almost just as present in the taste as it was in the aroma. It’s really round and surprisingly balanced this. Traces of cold coffee, fudge, cocoa nibs and some roasted malts appear. Guess you could call it a Nesquik/O-boy for adults. Scary lightdrinkable, tasty and just a plain old damned nice chocolate stout. 02.02.2013

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black body with a large, creamy, medium brown head that stays a finger-thick layer until the glass is empty, good lacing. Sweet, malty and Intense aroma that isn’t exactly very complex: it’s mostly a massive sweet chocolate overdose, backed up by other roasted malty notes, some fruits in the back and hints of both lactic sugar and brown sugar. The chocolate is less sweet on the palate, it’s dark and bitter with additional dry and dark roasted malt to further contrast the sweetness. Also fruits in the background, together with wood, and lactic sugar and brown sugar. Moderate to light sweet taste with a moderate bitter finish. Medium body, it actually feels a bit too light-bodied for the intensity of the aroma and flavour. Nice creamy texture, though, with a light dryness in the finish. A lovely brew indeed!
