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!

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!

Rating from December 2010 tasting notes. Bottle. Black brown, small tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, smoke. Flavor was chocolate and espresso. Full bodied, acidic palate.

Wow, a chocolate beer that tastes like chocolate? Sadly, most don’t. Rogue has really outdone themselves with their double chocolate stout. It captures the chocolate liquor flavor and bittersweet chocolate aroma amazingly well. Appearance is inviting with a chocolate color and dark tan head. Palate is very full and smooth with a thin, wet finish. Taste is mildly sweet, lots of chocolate liquor and a moderately bitter hops finish. Overall, this is one amazing beer. I would prefer a tad sweeter, as I like to drink it alone for dessert. Still, one of the best beers I’ve had considering that it delivers what others beers have promised but fallen short of before (ommegang chocolate indulgence, i’m looking at you).

Bottle faced at home. Pours a black abyss with a rich brown coffee like head an a strong lacing presence that binds to my glass. Aromatically a bit like a chocolate chip mint sundae. Minty and menthol like up front maybe serving temperature is a bit too chill. Sweet chocolate notes, almost whip cream like in its fluffy chocolate presentation. Marsh mellows, mint and chocolate, smells decadent. Soft chocolate body with a much lighter sweetness than is anticipated in the aromatics. Soft carbonation, and a softer body with an almost nitrous like velvet texture, though at times appears oily as well. Finish is even less sweet with a soft vanilla and a quick bitter coffee roastiness to impart on any true vanilla tone. A very solid offering and improvement on the original recipe.

In short: A bitter chocolate orgy. Very simple, yet very enjoyable.
How: Bottle 22oz, cool red bottle. Consumed when approximately 6 months of age. I’m assuming it was only brewed once and I have the first batch (6 months after the beer release)
The look: Black body topped by a medium tan head with medium retention
In long: Nose is… I’m giving you three guesses… think… think… you’ll never guess it… so I’ll tell you, the nose is like stuffing your nostrils with pieces of a black chocolate bar. Yep, that beer smells like an almost pure (85% cocoa) black chocolate bar. Who would have thought? Taste is… I mean what can you say about a beer like this. It does exactly what it is supposed to do. The Double Chocolate is simply a black chocolate orgy even though the body is not very thick and heavy. The roasted level is actually pretty high and that makes the beer feel dryer than it really is. Once again I think this is a very hoppy beer (this is Rogue after all) but here the hops bitterness gets lost in the black chocolate bitterness that is in fact very bitter. The next bottle of Rogue Double Chocolate I open I will do a side-by-side with a classic like Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout or maybe Southern Tier Choklat. With this bottle I did a side by side with their Rogue Double Mocha Porter and it was a waste of time as there was nothing to compare. And that’s a lot of beer to drink to make the comparisons. Too much beer? I don’t know. I took my beer drinking to another new level so from now on I will only listen to the Surgeon Admiral warnings.
