Beautiful black beer with a creamy foamy tan head. Great lacing. Smells like bittersweet baking chocolate. Good deep flavor. A slight tinny flavor which takes away from the coffee/chocolate aftertaste but really a nice stout. Smooth. Really nice stuff.

BEAUTIFUL appearance! Thick and black with a large dark brown head. Nice lacing. Light will not permeate this beer. A bit sweet and floral scent, not what I expected for such a robust looking brew. MMMM... lots of orange in the taste, with a hint of chocolate. VERY nice! A little thin in the mouthfeel, but it works. Extremely drinkable- a bit filling for more than one though.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2005 I was lucky enough to get a 3L bottle of this for my b-day(signed by John nonetheless)and shared it with family on X-mas eve. As on other occasions, I thought it was just wonderful. Full bodied-almost approaching Imperial and with such a nice balance of malt and hops. Personally I like it without the added choc. flavor, but I’m not much of a "flavored"beer lover.

This is the best American brewed stout that I have tried. Chocolate, mocha, and roasted flavors blend nicely in this one. Full bodied and very satisfying.

I liked this stout. Very roasty with a nice brown head. Chocolatety, with some bitterness. Enjoyable. Not like other Rogue beers. Very smooth beer.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2004 One fine looking pour, off that 22 oz bomber. Perfect carbonation produced an incredible brown head on top of total blackness. Nose was dominated by an American hop, with hints of chocolate and roast. Flavor was roasty and chocolatey, with the Bitterness there but kept a little in the background. Very smooth round body and full palate. This would really be like velvet in a few months of conditioning. Top notch.

Gunny (41) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2004 Opaque brown with a thick, offwhite head. The aroma is of dark roasted malt and bitter, dark chocolate accompanied by an underlying earthiness and the faint sting of hops on the nose. Initial rich, dark roasted coffee bitterness slowly rounds into subtle, sweet chocolate with floral undertones. Pleasantly silky mouthfeel and a lingering bittersweet aftertaste.

Well I'm not going to be able to add anything significant to this one. Creamy and rich and totally black and enticingly chocolatey and roasted nose. Full flavours followed by a fantastic aftertaste. Gotta drink this one when you have the chance to.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - JAN 21, 2004
Opaque black with a large tan head. Sweet malt, bitter hops and slight sour lactose aroma. Very rich flavors of roasted chocolate malt, smokiness, and sour lactose. Full feel with a slightly dry finish.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 21, 2004
The tan head on this stout is huge and just keeps hangin around. The body is black as expected. A very nice lokking stout. The aroma is full of malt with a nice balance between swet and bitter. Notes of fudge and hops are abound, and a slight roastiness lies hidden in the background. The flavor is slightly sweet yet bitter and slightly sour with a nice maltiness. The hops take over, however, and are almost to much. Hoppiness fills the finish. It's medium to full bodied and relatively dry.
