COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rogue’s Shakespeare Stout is ebony in color, a rich creamy head and a mellow chocolate aftertaste. It is made from Northwest Harrington, Crystal, and Chocolate malts, roasted barley and rolled oats, along with Cascade hop.

Pours a thick oily black, but a surprisingly large dark brown head leaps up in the glass. Aroma of chocolate, espresso, aggressively bitter malts. Hint of pine in the background. Nice sprucey bitterness from the hops up front, fades into a nice mocha flavor. Definitely bitter on the finish. Surprisingly light in the mouth, a hint of that roundness you sometimes get with adding oats to the mash bill. A very pleasant, very West Coast beer.

Pretty good sweet stout. POurs a deep black, no light shines through, dark brown head. A very roasted bouqet, some dark fruit (plum, raisen), a good deal of hop bitterness, and a chocolate aftertaste. Very smooth and creamy.

Very, very dark. Thick, toasted marshmellow head. Smokey, coffee aroma. Smooth drinking, creamy malt flavor with a nice bitter finish. Bravo!

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 7, 2004
Dark brown with a tan head. The flavors of chocolate, coffee and multigrain toast weakly comes through the blisteringly strong hops. Needs more balance boys.

Dorwart (2451) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2004
Great big brown head which settles very slowly but fun to watch. Aroma is not as strong as I would have expected. Roasted grains, a hint of coffee and dark chocolate. Color is black with a hint of red/orange in front of a very strong light. Very smooth flavor with more roasted grains and coffee. Hops presence there also and is very prominent in the finish. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Quite the nice finish. A very good stout. Not as much character as some of the other stouts out there but still quite good.

SpringsLicker (3253) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2004
This is the most complex and over the top of Rogue's regular Stouts. Just a little more of everything. Not for the novice Stout drinker or initiate to the style.

Deep black pour with a nice creamy tan head. Aroma full of some hoppyness and roasted flavors. Very smooth taste...dark chocolate and coffee dominate. Nice and easy to drink. A very good Stout to say the least. Bought this 22oz bottle at Total Wine in Manssas, VA.

Annoyingly over-hopped, some roasty flavours can be tasted through the onslaught of cascades, but not much... fizzy finish.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Black body topped with an ample tan head. Complex aroma with coffee and chocolate and, perhaps, licorice. Full, robust feel in the mouth. Flavor had just the right bitterness and an espresso touch. Excellent beer.
