4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black, and has a couple inch tan head that stays around for a long time. There’s also a good amount of lacing. The aroma is very nice, the brew smells mostly like milk chocolate and malted milk balls, along with some roasted malt and vanilla. It tastes like milk and bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and vanilla. Nice mix of both sweet and bitter chocolate flavors. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s creamy and coating with moderate carbonation. Rogue does a great job with their stouts, and this one is no different. It’s a good brew, definitely worth trying, especially if you’ve never had it before. $11.99 a bottle.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours pitch black with a thick, khaki head. Upfront aroma of a chocolate fondue.. chocolate sauce.. milk chocolate. Basically it is fucking chocolatey. Touch of raw sugar. Taste is upfront dairy milk chocolate, nutella and brown sugar. So sickly sweet, too much chocolate for me (yes, I’m aware it is a double chocolate stout). Prefer the Brooklyn chocolate stout over this.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Room temp bottle 750ml. Cheap-looking packaging. Pours relatively thick. Black, no head but very effervescent. Smells of chocolate sauce and yeast. Body is medium, more carbonation than I’m used to in a stout but doesn’t seem overdone. Taste has more chocolate sauce, some hazelnut and milkshake. Chocolate flavour is a bit thin, and the stout is pretty one dimensional. Drinkable, decent but not classy or interesting.

Bière noire, mousse moka, nez doux de chocolat. En bouche, la douceur se poursuit avec un goût franc de chocolat noir. On pense à un fudge au café; c’est à la fois sucré et amer. Je pourrais en boire encore et encore tellement c’est simple et savoureux sans pour autant tomber dans le «too much».

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber shared by Leanne and Javier over at the Means’s. Near black pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate malt, coffee and little buttery. Tastes are the same with earthy bitter cocoa. Easy drinking and the abv is well hidden.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
9/29/2010: Rogue Double Chocolate Stout... Aroma: Chocolate milk; cocoa nibs roastiness hiding in the back; mostly CHOCOLATE! Appearance: Near black; opaque; gentle carbonation; looks quite thick on the pour; tan-colored crown. Flavor: Belgian chocolate; heavily caramelized malts; mocha latte; sugary sweetness like that of a Tootsie Roll; deep, rich espresso flavor and bitterness in the finish; linger leafy hop bitterness; alcohol well-hidden. Palate: Medium-full to full body; mellow; thick and viscous, yet smooth and supple. Overall: This is a nice chocolate stout that isn’t overly sweet and still tastes like beer; good body to accomapny the rich and robust flavors; lots of chocolate without being overwhelming; excellent!
Growler fill (draught) from Party Town in Florence, KY. Rating #407 for this beer.

4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours pitch black with a mocha colored head. Smells strongly of chocolate. Taste is STRONGLY chocolate and not much else. Full-bodied with a velvet texture and light mouth-carbonation, Rogue Double Chocolate Stout finishes with a subtle mildly sweet, mildly bitter tingle.
