Rogue Nation, SF: Dark black pour with a foamy, clingy mocha head. Subtle burnt and mossy aroma. Thick smoky taste with a burnt leave. Good offering.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2005 The beer pours as black as a raven, with a nice off-brown head. Copious brussels lace presents itself in the glass, as one savors a mixture of taste sensations. Shakespeare has a subdued hoppiness, some sweetness and a full body, with overtones of molasses, brown sugar, and even black cherries. I can’t do justice to the complexity with words. Try it if you like stouts. You won’t be disappointed.

This stout poured a black colour with a dark brown head. Scents of artificial everything, including cocoa, roasted malts, oatmeal and a little alcohol. First sip has almost burnt malt taste with a hint of coffee and finishes with a usual wet ash taste. Palate is smokey with more burnt flavours. Pretty good Stout.

A great stout! I do however think that Rogue again has overemphasized the presence of chocolate in this one. Kind of thin and watery, but this was not detrimental to the overall quality of the beer, I did enjoy them in fact, quite nice.

Great! Nice chocolate, malt, and coffee aromas here. Tastes of chocolate are more present than coffee though. Nice black body with a copper head. Full and smooth in the mouth. Very tasty indeed. Seems like Rogue can't go wrong.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Pours a beautiful deep black with a a thick light brown head. Roasted malt, mocha and Pacific NW hops in the nose. Overall, this stout is very bold and flavorful. Has notes of dark chocolate/coffee, caramel and cascade hops/slight grapefruit. Pleasantly sweet. Plenty of bitterness provided by ample hops and roasty bitterness - leaves a slightly burnt aftertaste. Some roasty acidity too. Lacing hangs on the glass in thick sheets, great head retention. I overlook this one because it’s widely available, I forget how good it is.

(tap)Woa, what a nice creamy beer. Lots of chocolate and coffee hints in this one. Feels really nice and so smooth. Definitly a great beer. Will grab this one again.

This beer pours out a big black w/a towering brown head that took a little swim over the edge(awesome)nice brown spready lace.Aromas of heavily roasted malt/coffee,chocolate,and a dump load of fine cascade hops(which lends a slightly metalic quality at times).The taste of this stout is every thing I look for in a heavily hopped stout.A big full beer with a gentle creamy mouth.Damn this has got to be my favorite Rogue stout.Long lingering hops and roastiness.If you like beer for dinner this would be a fine choice.

This brew is somethin good. A dark brown head with a black body give me something to look forward to. The look gives off the idea that this is a think beer, however it ends up being a little thiner than you may expect. All in all a beer I'd go out and get again for sure!

The first whiff smells like a mixture of dark roasted coffee, burnt toast, and a smoking grill. As I get further down, more complexities like chocolate and grapefruit emerge. Towards the end the hops start asserting themselves more. The appearance is completely opaque black with a dark brown thick head that rapidly rises as the beer is poured. The head leaves brown lacing going down. The taste is that of dark roasted caramel malts, balanced nicely by bitter hops. I just wish it was a tad bit more more hoppy. Nice mothfeel. A bit thin for a stout but very tasty.
