Draft at Novare Res. Nice order, Laura. Pours a deep, opaque brown with a noticeable lighter chocolate brown on the edges and top, under a thin, creamy tan head. Big chocolate aroma, rich and sugary, with roasted malts, molasses, and earth in the background. The flavor brought more complexity to the chocolate- milk, bittersweet, baker’s- and placed it on top of roasted malts and bitter earth. Medium-full bodied, with mellow carbonation and a smooth, rich, sweet mouthfeel. Hit the spot with our Belgian waffle dessert.

750 ml lovely red-painted bottle purchased a year ago at Holiday Wine Cellar ($12.49). Pours a very dark brown with two full fingers of rich creamy dark mocha foam. Aroma of dark fudgy chocolate, Hershey’s cocoa powder (for making chocolate milk), creamy vanilla, and some smooth roasty notes. Flavor is full of very dark and smooth bittersweet chocolate with lesser notes of vanilla, espresso, and hints of dark stone fruit. This is remarkably smooth for a big beer, and the alcohol is well concealed. Though this is VERY chocolatey (almost to an extreme), it is important to note that it is not in the least cloying...much more like the very high cacao content chocolate bars that I bought in Ecuador last year that featured regional cacao. It’s nice that this impy stout really concentrates on chocolate, and the result is a big success. (120, 592)

One of the best chocolate beers, and takes us a long way forward from Shakespeare chocolate stout. Tremdous treat to the nose of dessert chocolate fondue. Above average mouthfeel, though carbonation right there. American chocolate with its sweetness, and more bittersweet European chocolate. Fairly complex, I found this well balanced between bitter and sweet. Dark brown body.My swingtop bottle from Premier Gourmet.

Pours dark brown/black color with brown head. Big milk chocolate aroma. Sweet milk chocolate flavor with some roastiness. Full body with minimal carbonation. Went great with chocolate cake.

9/1/10 on tap at papago. dark. almost black with a soft medium brown head. holy hot chocolate aroma!.... roast, cream, coffee and wood too but the cocoa really dominates this. it tastes like a mocha cappuccino without the sweetness... choco, coffee and cream with a slightly sour finish. it is very one dimensional... and delicious! it is medium bodied.... maybe a bit thin for and ’imperial’ but that aids the drinkability (in small doses). 8/4/8/4/16

Chipalsa (1307) - Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Nice find :-). Poured dark with a crazy perfect head. Smelled of chocolate, coffee, alcohol and some light raisins tickling the senses. The flavor assaults the tastebuds. Robust notes of roasted coffee, dark chocolate and creamy roasted malts are almost too much. Washing away with a nice malt backbone and spicy notes (alcohol, likely) this beer is even better than I expected. Wow.

Gift from Southern Johnny. Pitch black oil pour with a generous brown head. Bold chocolate aroma with roasted malt, coffee and coacoa. Flavor is a dry, dark chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts that finish dry and bitter. A full body beer that gets better as it warms. Well Done!

hamilton23 (603) - Alpine, California, USA - JUN 3, 2011
A: Pours very dark brown, nearly black with a fair amount of dark tan head with lots of lacing. S: Chocolate and maybe some licorice. T: Chocolate with a fair amount of bittering hops in the back of this one. M: Nicely carbonated, slightly dry. O: Lots of chocolate in this one, but it is just not as good as Southern Tier Choklate and other big chocolate stouts I have had.

Had this on tap at Red’s Alehouse in North Liberty, IA. A really great chocolate beer that actually puts emphasis on some chocolate flavor. Chocolatey aroma really stands out. Appearance is a chocolate color and dark tan head. Flavor is sweet,but not overly with lots of chocolate and a moderately bitter hops finish. Overall, an amazing beer.

If you don’t like chocolate don’t grab a big red bomber that says, "Double Chocolate Stout." Rogue hit a homerun in my book with this one. Not complex like a Goose BCS but it delivers a big stout with a not overly sweet chocolate. I was only going to taste it but enjoyed every last drop of that bomber. Catch you next time KrazyJon!
