Bottle. Very dark with thick rich mocha head and generous lacing. Smells like chocolate milk over rice crispies. Nice bitter chocolate flavor with ample roastiness. Dry finish, pretty clean for what it is. Tasty.

On tap a Taco Mac. Beautiiful jet black pour with a thin tan head; significant lacing all the way down the glass. As expected, the aroma yields chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is excellent - the chocolate and roast in the aroma come through along with malted milk and some coffee beans. Nice bitter finish. Mouthfeel is creamy, but not too heavy. Very nice beer from Rogue.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. The pour is slow and black, thick, with a rich mocha head. The aroma is more malt than anything, some bitter chocolate. The taste is full bodied. The chocolate hits you fast and stays throughout. Nice balance between the chocolate and the malt flavor of a classic stout. Very nice flavor, especially if you like your chocolate.

1 year bottle pours dense black with fizzy tan head. Nice aroma of chocolate and a caramel nuttiness with a roasted grainy coffee tone, almost like a coffee snickers bar. The flavor is rich roasted grains, some oats in the mix with a hearty chocolate flavor. There is a balancing bittering semi sweet chocolate earthy backbone giving some overall dryness. Lower carbonation makes drinking it beyond easy, especially when cooler. Pleasant finish with roasted coffee chocolatiness and a small touch of berry fruits. Rally solid brew.
