From bottle. Pours almost black with beige head. Aroma: coffee, black malts, chocolate and milky note. Taste with coffee on the first place, sour from dark malts, coffee stays very long. Medium mouth feel. Too high carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a soda brown with a small light tan head that leaves a bit of spotty lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate, toasted malts, raisin, hints of caramel, licorice and coffee. Taste is unsweetened baker’s chocolate, toasted caramel malts, hints of coffee. Backed by a resiny dank hoppiness that comes through as slightly acidic. Quick finish of cocoa and toasted malts. Medium bodied with a disappointing thin, watery texture and slightly higher than average carbonation. Not bad, but not the level of quality I expect from Rogue.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A little whiff of chocolate. Light taste of chocolate. Some cocoa but also watery. Okay bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the upper part of the mouth to a weak moment. Good beer but too watery. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate and caramel, but not a whole lot of coffee. Flavor is more bland, similar to the aroma but more diluted. Finishes with a surprising bitterness that isn’t entirely pleasant. Just okay.
