2 ounce sample. Tasting at 99 BOTTLES. Chocolate and coffee were the dominant aromas and flavors. This was one of the best smelling stouts I have encountered. The flavor fell a little short of the aroma, but was still well done. If you like chocolate mochas then you will enjoy this ale.

Smells like milk chocolate candy (M&M’s). Small head, but nice rings of light brown lacing. Tastes more roasty than I anticipated. Fairly bitter finish. Some acid. Nice beer; not amazing. Not understanding the high overall rate.

Aroma is acidic. Metallic. A hint of chocolate. Oatmeal. Lighter. Sweet Looks fine. Tan head. Black. Taste is very sweet like aspartame note. Chocolate on the finish. Like a milk chocolate. Acidic on the finish. Decently balanced but so dry. Hops hops hops on the finish. Palate is.... Not so good. Super dry and lingering hops on the finish. It’s a chocolate stout... Shouldn’t be hops on the finish. Medium light body. This is beer is ok.... The taste is good but the palate is rough. The hops on the finish are really not what I’m looking for in a chocolate stout. Had this in the same sitting as a founders breakfast and that was def better.

Big bottle, served in TeKu. Pours gently with thick, creamy and beige head. Aroma is toffee, some vanilla, chocolate and subtle coffee. Very creamy and pleasant. Taste is quite dry with lots of chocolate, roasted malts, some coffee, oily texture. I think more sweetness would correspond well with soft mouthfeel, otherwise beer seems a little bit too dry for me. Anyway, its another great beer from Rogue, extremely enjoyable.

Pretty good, not my favourite. I miss a nice body but it’s really drinkeble and enjoyable. I like the roasted barley and the chocolat. Rogue rules but this ain’t my cup of tea.

Avalanche de chocolat sans écoeurer. Assez légère et facile à boire. Bonne stout mais pas si exceptionelle que ca.

Shared at my Summer Plunder Tasting by Kery. A dark cola pour which is black with ruby highlights. 5% great cocoa nib aroma very smooth. Medium bodied with a bitter dark cacao flavor and some sweet vanilla notes. A nice solid chocolate stout.

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.
