Rated 3/17/13. Bottle says 9%. Portion of a 22 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass. A: Pours an opaque black color. The head is a one finger tan shade that retains fairly poorly. S: Though chocolaty, it perhaps lacks the vibrant intensity of, say, Choklat. Actually, the more it opens up, the stronger the chocolate note becomes. Hard to smell anything else here, as expected. I’m docking points because something here’s rubbing me the wrong way - perhaps an artificial tone? Still a likable aroma. T: Drier than the nose would lead me to believe. The opening is pure chocolate while the midtaste tries to balance it out with an upsurge of strong roasted barley and coffee. Finish has a bit of hoppiness to it, as well...and some strange chemical flavors. Honestly - and I say this as a HUGE fan of Choklat - the chocolaty flavors clash with the roasted and burnt bitterness. It’s not fantastic, or even good, but it’s easy to drink at least. M: Like I said in the flavor, this is very dry. Seems like the aim here was for drinkability, and it does succeed here somewhat. Not as cloying as expected - maybe its because I’m not drinking a whole bottle of this solo. O: This is NOT a true dessert beer, as any sweetness the chocolate provides (and it does provide a good deal) is scrubbed clean by the roasted and hop bitterness. And yet, it still comes off as being wildly out of whack. Cool bottle, meh beer, horrible price - basically, just another Rogue product.

750ml bottle, thanks Craig! Rich roasted malt aroma with big notes of chocolate as well as hints of coffee and vanilla. Pours extremely dark brown with a large mocha brown head that has excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt flavors as well as chocolate and bit of vanilla to go with a rich body and nice mouthfeel. Finishes very smooth with the chocolate coming through more with slight notes of coffee. Wonderful stout!

Bottle at KØ16. Mild chocolate aroma, some Nesquick. The flavour is quite sweet with a good dose of chocolate. Cloudy dark brown colour. Small stable dark brown head. Quite bitter, but nicely so.

Andrus86 (348) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2016
BOTTLE. Pours a oil black with minimal tan head that doesn’t last.. Sweet creamy velvet chocolate & a touch of burnt coffee on the nose.. The chocolate is big early, thick dark malt, going to a dark chocolate/coffee bitterness at the back while still holding a creamy choc texture through out.. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel

750ml bottle enjoyed @ home, thanks to Gary May! Pours pitch black with a decent sized beige head. Aroma is milk chocolate, vanilla, bitter dark chocolate and roasted malt. A little one-dimensional. Medium sweet and medium+ bitterness. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is cocoa and bittersweet.

Kind of odd that I’ve never tried this one before. I guess I’ve just never come across it. Bottle purchased at Bier Station, and consumed in Kansas City hotel. My brother Colin helped me open the bottle without an opener. Dark black body brown head some lacing. Cocoa powder milk chocolate malt aroma. Taste is quite sweet and cocholately with a roasty bitterness. I definitely like it but I still think the Flying Monkey BNL is better. Nice beverage. Thanks, Colin, for working your magic with that Canadian quarter.
