4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: viscous dark brown which, when poured vigorously, creates two fingers of slowly shrinking mocha head; the whole thing sits in the glass like a dollop of chocolate pudding. Aroma: chocolate (surprisingly, ha) with some roast espresso, vanilla, and caramel. Taste: bittersweet dark chocolate, cocoa powder, sweetened condensed milk, coffee, graham crackery malts, with just a whisper of pine needles. Finish: creamy, bittersweet, with roasty chocolate notes lingering forever. Notes: A chocolate bomb with a big, rich palate. Somehow not a sipper, but not a gulper either. It helps that they kept the alcohol down, which allowed the flavors of the chocolate to really take point without boozy interference.

On tap at PreFunk. Wasn’t expecting it to be this good, but its pretty damn tasty. Chocolatey, just like that name says. Creamy texture, dark semi sweet chocolate dominates the nose. Small creamy beige head. Taste is chocolate, coffee, roast grains, burnt toast. Silky smooth, bittersweet finish. Yea, it deserves the score....

What a fantastic beer. I had this in from a bomber. Great cascade on the pour. Head sets up nice, and leaves a great lacing as you enjoy. Chocolatey, sweet, with the right amount of bitter. Another job well done from Rogue.

Pours a flat black color with a dark brown head. Aroma is mostly dark chocolate, milk chocolate, some roast and booze. Sweet smelling. Tastes like milk chocolate and roast, with more hop flavor than I was expecting. More sweet than bitter, but still well balanced. Palate is a little thin for the style. Overall this is a good chocolate stout; it doesn’t taste fake like a lot of the other ones I have tried.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A very dark brown-black beer that pours with a large dark tan head. It has a very strong milk chocolate and bitter pine and red fruity flavour, oak and vanilla notes followed by a nutty creamy and dark chocolate boozy finish. Very good, but I’m not sure if it’s any better than the normal Chocolate Stout.

Opaque black beer with a brown head and a rich chocolate aroma. Flavour is chocolatey, coffee from the malt and a slight sweetness to take the edge off which I imagine comes from the honey. Rich, hearty body and a lingering dark chocolate aftertaste. Delicious.
