ThisWangsChung (826) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2013
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. Im docking points because something heres 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. Its not fantastic, or even good, but its 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 Im 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.

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 Im not sure if its any better than the normal Chocolate Stout.

ianwelby (769) - SCOTLAND - AUG 26, 2015
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.

750ml bottle. Black withe beige brown head. Aroma is roasted malty, lot of chocolate - dark and milk, cocoa. Taste is heavy sweet and light bitter. Chocolate again but there are some perfume notes in the taste - something artificial that I dont like. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

750 ml bottle poured at home. Smells like chocolate, tastes like chocolate. I loved the Rogue chocolate stout and this is just as good if not better. Nice looking bottle too! extremely drinkable.
