Large painted bottle. Thin tan head. Color is black. Nose is sweet and alcoholic. Tastes like sweet chocolate, coffee and roasted malts with substantial hop bitterness. Finish is long and bitter-sweet. Not bad, but I prefer Brooklyn Brewery’s Black Chocolate Stout.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a jet black with a creamy tanned head leaving superb lacing. Aromas of powered cocoa, milk chocolate, espresso and a hint of licorice. Taste has so much chocolate as I expected. At the back end roasted espresso and milk chocolate become evident. Palate is left clucking for more. Pretty easy drinking stout great stuff

Liquid chocolate bar! Very chocolatey. Can taste coffee notes too. Not very much roasted malt comes through -- but did I mention the chocolate? Splendid stout. Not complex at all, but fun!

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.
