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 viscous oil black out of the 22 oz. bottle forming a thick brown head that diminishes rapidly. Aroma is enticing, bearing heavy darkly roasted malts, coffee, carob and a distinct piney, hoppiness. The flavor lives up to the touted advance billing offered by the visual and olfactory cues. Smoked chocolate, peat, espresso and a robust hop bite along the back of the tongue. The mouthfeel is smooth, rich, medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. Very nice stout and the relatively low ABV make the “bomber” bottle quite manageable.

jgb9348 (4842) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2003
Opaque black in colour with an initially large brown head which subsides to a small tan head with large bubbles. The smell is definately sweet, with tons of malt and a noticable chocolate aroma. Roasted flavour with a soft touch and even ends in a bit of sourness on the palate. The mouthful is pretty thick, but not overwhelmingly so. All said, this is a pretty good beer by a pretty good brewery.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2003
Ebony black with small but impressive tan head that lingers. Aroma is cascade and a roasted graininess. Smooth on the palate, thick and creamy. Flavor is malty with a hint of chocolate and hop bitterness. Finishes drier than the other Rogue Stouts I've tried.

I was skeptical about this. Fortunately it wasn't overhopped, very nicely balanced stout. Not weak but not too strong. I appreciate how Rogue put all of the ingredients and beer facts on the bottle. I wish all brewers would list their ingredients. Cheers to Rogue! Anyways, it's mainly a chocolately stout, good thick mouthfeel. Relaxing beer.

jjw2000 (72) - USA - MAY 27, 2003
Deep brown color (opaque) with dark brown head. Aroma is very faint, slightly hoppy and some yeast. Flavor is very rich and the strong roasted mocha/espresso flavor approaches charred. Finish is similarly roasted, fairly bitter, and lingering. Bitterness seems to derive from both hops and the roasted malt. Smooth/creamy mouthfeel is excellent.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2003
Bottled. Black with a brown hue, the head was think and very brown. Rich black malt aromas. Tasting the real-deal, it delivered roasted malt flavours which were dry and bitter, like 80% coco dark chocolate. Coffee/mocha finish. Nice long palate but not as smooth as some. Possibly a little on the thin side compared to its contemporaries.
