3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very chocolatey, I knew what I was getting into with a double chocolate stout, but personal preference I prefer a good imperial stout with more coffee flavor. Great beer tho, would drink again.

Amazing. Best stout I’ve ever drank. Roasty, malty, hints of hops, and perfect chocolaty aftertaste. Rogue has done it’s again...

Opaque dark chocolate body with a milk chocolate head. Aroma of chocolate. Flavors of chocolate and bitter chocolate and chocolate beans and a tiny bit of coffee and cocoa powder. Even the mouth had a chocolate astringency. If your like chocolate you will love this.

Yummy. This is what I expect from a double chocolate stout. At first it was real bitter for me, but then that just smoothed out to chocolate goodness. Poured black. Had nice chocolate aroma. Didn't have much head or lacing on the glass. If you can find this, get it.

Pours completely black. Head starts off like a chocolate foam but quickly goes away to nothing. Aroma is chocolate. Starts off chocolate and finishes with some roast flavor. Wait around and you can detect the higher alcohol.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
750 ml bottle. Pours dark brown black with a medium creamy brown head that goes to a thin film and laces the glass some
The aroma is sweet baker’s chocolate with some roast and a touch of alcohol.
The flavor is a bit thin and subdued. It’s some slightly chalky, very sweet, roasted chocolate malts, with some vegetal notes. The finish is some strong roast bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly watery with soft carbonation.
Overall, it had promise as a sweet dessert beer, but it had too many flaws.

Pours near black with a minimal off white head and some spotty lacing as it makes its way down the glass. Nose is abundant chocolate. I got both milk and more bitter dark chocolate along with a bit of roasted malt. Taste adds a touch of creamy sweetness alongside a tongue smack of chocolate indulgence. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy. Not too alcoholic and certainly not cloying. This sits really well and goes down easy. Reminds me of the chocolate factory tour at Hershey.

Several times in bottles. Pours beautiful jet black with luscious head. Chocolate, dark roasted malt with expresso, sweetness balanced out with hop presence. Just a powerful mix of flavors that really work well together.

Incredible aroma and great black appearance leads to real chocolate taste with basic mouthfeel.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy cocoa, milk chocolate, faint maple syrup, and the slightest touch of espresso. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a two finger tan head that fades to a thick film within a minute or so. There is some sporadic webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a moderate cocoa and light milk chocolate. The finish has light-moderate maple syrup with a touches of smoke and roasted coffee. It’s medium-full bodied with with mild carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, I generally like the maple syrup quality that shows up in some Imperial Stouts, but the combination with with the moderate-heavy cocoa makes a 22oz bottle a bit much to consume on my own. 12oz bottles would be an ideal serving size. It’s still very good...but make sure you split a bomber with at least one other person.
