3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a thick, dark brown-black. Little to no head. Aroma is sweet and roasty accompanied by a good amount of dark-chocolate. Flavor is bittersweet. Strong dark chocolate flavor. Solid. Not necessarily something I could drink all the time though. I’ve never been a huge chocolate fan though so you may like it a bit more.

Experienced out of the bottle and poured into a tall glass, Rogue’s Double Chocolate Stout has got to be one of the most balanced sweet stouts out there. Although it is not one of the highest in alcohol volume I think it’s for sure the best chocolate-tasting stout I have ever tried, and I have been tearing through stouts of this kind for a while now. It’s all about chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate with this one, from the aroma to the pour to the initial drink and especially the lingering, sweet aftertaste, this is the one to stick with if you are looking for a classic chocolate beer.

Black with tan head. Aroma is deep malt with toffee, chocolate, light licorice, leather and tobacco, dark fruit. Flavor: malty, with obvious chocolate, light crystal malt sweetness, coffee and light roast. Medium-full body, low/med carbonation, lightly warming. Great chocolate stout.

Very strong chocolate taste and enhanced bitterness from the hops nicely hides the alcohol burn. Great aroma of chocolate as well. Very easy to drink

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft pint at Market Cross Pub, Carlisle, PA. Definitely not my kind of beer. Drinking it for the nice pint glass and working on my World Beer Tour Passport. Dark brown with no head. Slight chocolate aroma. Slight chocolate taste. Slight chocolate aftertaste. Not offensive, even if this is not your thing, but not refreshing either. If you like chocolate (a lot) and like beer ( a little), you can do one!

This is my favorite Imperial Stout so far. Balanced aroma, with notes of chocolate, coffee, roasy. Herbaceus hops. Full, smooth body. It is a must!

650ml bottle at Appelation Wines 29 jan, thanks Ash. Pours an opaque and glossy with a cappuccino head. The nose has milk chocolate and some sweet fruit. The taste has more milk chocolate though there’s a bit of dryness behind. The palate is big and creamy. Overall, a nice beer, though very chocolatery. This is a bottle you need to share with a lot of people.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2012 Pours deep black into a snifter. Mocha head recedes to skim rim. Milk chocolate and espresso aromas. Sweet milk chocolate upfront turning to resin in the lasting finish. Very nice for dessert.
