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.

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

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.

Toasted, woody nose; opaque black color; large tan head. Relatively quick roasted malt front end with a nice coffee bitterness at the end. Fairly dry (which I liked). Solid stout.

Easily could be considered a "hop heads" stout, this beer makes a statement from the moment it's poured. The beer is thick and oily with a dark brown head. Light coffee and chocolate aromas are masked by the Cascade hops. Body was exceptionally light for the style with moderate carbonation. It was not rich or creamy, instead it was simply pleasing. The finish was only modestly dry with a bitter finish that diminished quickly. It is a shame that there were no other flavors to describe. The hop bitterness and aroma was too great. A true disappointment.

jet black. had this on cask at fatheads in pittsburgh. very delicious and inoffensive beer could win over most 'only guiness' types. very rich and roasty. earns respect gracefully rather than beating it out of you

I guess it is not a good idea drinking it after the Rogue Chocolate Stout - as the flavors are couldn"t be as intense as in the Choco Stout, but that's how it was served: Weak nose with candis and chocolate. Opaque with a little layer of a head. Espresso, nearly mocca and chocolate taste / but not as good.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - DEC 21, 2003
Nice stout appearance with a dark tan head. Dry, roasted malts with good chocolate/coffee notes. Wow, complex on that side with a decent hop bite to balance it out. A very solid offering. Not really a statement beer though; more restrained and a somewhat strange finish.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Wow! Poured black as night. Not much of a head, but enough to seal in the flavor. The second pour into my glass (big bottle) had more head which left a beautiful lace behind. The taste was amazing for a Stout. Not too bitter. Lots of body and *very* complex. Chocolate and coffee hints abound, as do the wonderful Cascade hops. This is one of the few Stouts I could drink anytime.

Black, with a big brown head. Roasty, acid nose, whiffs of licorice and chocolate. Quite bitter, with an underlying smokiness. Dry but with a nice smooth mouthfeel. Too bitter--odd hops for the style.
