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.

ACHops (1030) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2015
On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours deep thick opaque brownish black with thin lacy mocha head that lingers. Aroma is big rich milk chocolate, dry oaky roasty malts in the background a bit. Taste is dark roasty malt, light char adding further dark depth, rich dark chocolate follows through the finish. Dry, oaky, clean finish. Minimal barrel-aged notes on this, which honestly separate it from other top tier imperial stouts. Still, great flavor and lots to like here.

unclemike (2668) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Dark brown with a thick tan head. Smells like a chocolate malted with a touch of coffee and oats. Creamy full body with a tang. Taste is Hershey’s syrup, caramel, orange peel and pine. Primarily sweet, as expected, with a good dose of hops to add some balance and contrast. Finishes with cocoa and espresso

Percy0103 (317) - MEXICO - OCT 9, 2015
Bottle, 750ml. A pitch black beer with a small brown head and a red hue at the top. Aroma is of dark chocolate, the bitter one and another dark but creamy, coffee and nuts. Taste is bitter with a sweet chocolate finish. Robust and oily with some carbonation and astringency. Aftertaste reminds me of black coffee. Very strong, yet well balanced considering its high ABV and all the rich flavors.

Bottle, 750ml. Opaque dark brown/ruby with a minimal head. Sweet chocolate aroma with a hint of spices and peanut butter. Rich and smooth, with a deep roasted character and a chocolate bitter finish. Exquisite

stevoj (3106) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 24, 2015
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.
