Hells yea - how am I not going to love this?? Black, thick full head.... mmmmm... gonna take this whole thing without a whimper. Huge warm mildly yet temptingly sweet chocolate everywhere, biscuit, maybe a hint of licorice, more chocolate - milk chocolate mixed in with some soft caramel... I think I’m wrong about that licorice - this thing is all chocolate goodness which is growing in sweetness the longer I let this warm. The same can be said for the taste - it’s all chocolate. Perfect. I don’t give a shit about complexity - I love nothing better than chocolate in stouts. Big, thick, smooth chocolate. There is a great old school Star Trek on where the entire crew of another ship have evaporated leaving nothing but the chemicals in salt cube form... the planet they beamed down to has what appears to be mongels... classic. Back to the chocolate love-in. Mmmmmmm. There is a very mild bitterness and the ultra hint of fruitiness. The bitterness builds on the finish and does stick around but that might have more to do with endless quick sips. Wonderful. Full bodied, creamy, good carbonation, building well balanced bitterness. I left this on the table for 2 hrs before opening it - me thinks that was a good plan. I really really dig this beer.

A delicious and sweet imperial stout. Big aroma of chocolate and small hints of vanilla. Pour was a beautiful deep dark brown with a puffy 2 finger tan head. Taste was really good. Not great. A little thin and watery but heavy notes of chocolate and not much else. Strong bitterness takes over the mouth in the aftertaste. Light carbonation. A little too one dimensional to be great, but still a very delicious beer

On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering brown head. Aromaof milk chocolate, coffee, vanilla and carmel. Palate was medium odied and smooth. Flavors of milk chocolate, vanilla, carmel and light coffee with a smooth lingering chocolate finish.

Leafs93 (1658) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Pours inky black with a dark brown head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and more chocolate. Taste is roasty sweet chocolate. Mouth feel was thinner than anticipated. Overall this is a chocolate stout done right, the sweetness is tempered exceptionally well with the roastyness.

Strong chocolate aroma. Pours a dark dark brown. Extra oily palate. Bitter flavor but good overall. Better than double mocha.

jimhilt (2397) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Pours a five finger tan head that fades very slowly to a ring leaving a good lace. Black color, no highlights. Good carbonation and heavy bodied. Chocolate nose and flavor is sweet baked chocolate. Label has the ABV at 9% but its hidden. $12 for a 750ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

This poured a darker brown color with a tan head. Aroma was roast, lots of milk chocolate, some chocolate covered cherries too. Flavor was sweeter than expected from the aroma, lots and lots of milk chocolate with light roast, some booze there too and a bit of astringent bitterness..

Yep I finially did it gave a perfect rating. My first beer ever. I have had this beer in my cellar for two years. I have been a little scared of it from time to time. But what the he’ll it’s Christmas and a big wonderful steak to drink it with. Let’s do this- Look. One of the darkestest I have ever seen. It seems like it lumped out of the bottle. It looked amazing. The head was the darkest I have ever seen. It looked like a normal stout head that got burnt a little. Head lasted 2 finger high for at least 4-5 min. Smell- Carmel at first which moved towards chocolate and cocco. It smelled just like a Hersey syrupe mixed chocolate milk. You know the type you made after school groaning up. Taste- milk chocolate with a smooth Carmel. Starts with a alcohol bite at first that rolls into honey and milk. Pure joy. The taste is of a strong stout with a pleasant sweetness. Butter. Feel- yep a full meal in a glass. Thick heavy and smooth. Overall. Top5 beer of all-time todate. Yes first 5 across...best stout I have ever had. Damn you rogue. I want to hate you after the way yourcrewtreated me and my family in Newport this summer on our family vacation. Serious I try to find ways to hate them but2 of 5 favorite beers come from them. Great beer

Sampled in the bomber. Aged for about 15 months. The overall pop of the chocolate flavor was mildly noticeable in the aroma but was heavily present in the flavor of the brew. A really top shelf brew.
