3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Presentation: 750mL bottle with a red coating. Served in a pint glass.
Appearance: Two finger dark tan head that fizzles out rather quickly. It’s pretty much black in color and it leaves some good lacing.
Smell: A sweet chocolate smell dominates, with some hints of roasted malt in the background.
Taste: Tastes of dark and milk chocolate, with some smokiness from the roasted malt. It’s very sweet. There’s some bitterness at the end but it’s not really that noticeable.
Mouthfeel: There’s very little carbonation. It’s creamy, smooth, full bodied and rather strong. After drinking about half a glass it starts getting cloying because of the sweetness.
Overall: It’s a sweet treat, best to have it in small doses. You’ll enjoy it a lot more if you pair it with any chocolate dessert, because by itself it’ll just feel like too much sweetness after a while.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose is thick with caramel and chocolate. Mild sweetness paired with a heady dose of malts makes a brew that is not only richly dark with a beautiful toffee colored head, but wonderful and smooth on the palate. Best enjoyed when it's cold outside, in place of hot chocolate.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sweet Chocolaty Jesus. This beer made heavenly love to my taste buds and stuck around to cuddle. Let me start at the beginning. Double Chocolate Stout pours pitch black and has a dark brown head. Smelling like fresh cocoa and plate of warm brownies, everything about Rogue Double Chocolate Stout says "Ravish me." I was more than willing to oblige. The brew tastes like milk chocolate and buttery cocoa. Yet, there’s enough coffee and bittersweet dark chocolate tanginess to keep the richness from becoming overbearing. With an ABV of 9%, Rogue’s Stout is dangerously delectable. If you like booze and chocolate, this is a hell of a way to consolidate your vices.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A- Brownie batter, chocolate, mocha.
A- Black color, black liquid, brown head.
T- Brownies, milk chocolate, mocha, roasty.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, chocolatey finish.
O- This was like a liquid batch of brownies. Rogue has been hit or miss for me but this one nailed it. If you like chocolate beers without too much sweetness yet all the chocolate goodness this is a must have beer. Hard to believe you can snag a bomber for less than $8 too!
