4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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).

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.

Tap at tap room in Portland. In large goblet. Black with off white head that was allegedly spilled by rosskyle. Sweet chocolate nose. Taste is very chocolate and creamy. Delicious. Soft with very little bite. Warming. Finish could be more. Perfect after a meal. Good stuff.

I’ve wanted to try this for a long time. Has eluded me for some reason...but it was worth the wait. Very nice. Pours black with mocha head. Aromas are milk chocolate, caramel, chocolate syrup, caramilk bar. Nice cocoa nib flavours, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, lactose. Big sweet and bitter. Excellent.

This is like drinking a beer version of moonstruck cocoa! Pours a rich brown/black with a creamy espresso head. Rich mouthfeel and tastes of Dutch cocoa with some vanilla on the nose. Slight hop bitterness and a warm finish. A great stout!

Dark body with a THICK, creamy head. And nice carbonation. The head tastes of rich chocolate mousse. The beer is smooth and rich with a slight bitterness balanced by a semi sweet chocolate and a hint of figs.
