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.

Poured thick dark black like motor oil. The head was even a dark tan/brown color. The taste was quite good, with coffee dominating then losing to a chocolate aftertaste.

(Draft) Deep dark black color with a creamy brown head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Fruity chocolate aroma sets the stage for a very nice balanced chocolate, bitter, alcohol flavor. Smooth creamy body caps this beer off nicely.

BeanDip (117) - Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2003
Opaque with a rich brown head. Aroma is very nice blend of those very stouty things like chocolate, coffee, fruit/prune, roasted malt. Can smell the hops right up front too. I can't believe this baby has 69 IBUs - sure doesn't taste like it. Coffee and roasted malt dominate the taste. Ashiness - dirt like quality. Sweet. Hops appear at the end, but not in an overpowering way. The aroma really stands out on this beer for me.

jbak (111) - Torrington, Connecticut, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Pours an opaque pitch black color with a medium dark tan head with some lacing. Nice roasted aroma with notes of chocolate and some coffee. Medium heavy body with very tiny bubble carbonation, quite creamy. Flavor is quite malty with just touch of hops of front and then melds into a decent hop and coffee aftertaste to finish. Overall, a very good example of the style.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2004 Very thick, sweet at first with a bitter, nutty coffee finish. Rogue seems to make my favorite stouts.

This is a black stout that pours with a huge toffee colored head. The head retention is phenomenal as well. As the head recedes, it slowly fades into a rocky layer of film atop the beer, and leaves a thick coating of foam on the sides of the glass. A faint glimpse of dark redddish brown highlight is visible around the edge of the beer as you take a sip. The aroma is very nice, with roasted chocolate smells mingled with some hop spiciness. Malt sweetness is also evident in the aroma. The taste is very strong on the hops, and the citrusy notes of the Cascade hops is prominent. Strong roasted bitterness is also prevalent, with some chocolate notes to back it up. A faint hint of sweetness also creeps in on the finish

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2005 Very dark black color, big reddish brown head. Aroma has roasted barley, chocolate, and a hint of vanillla. Strong flavor of rich roasted malts, slightly bitter in the finish. Pretty smooth overall. I liked it.

flemdawg (550) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2003
A very good stout. Super dark color with a long lasting tan head. Roasted aroma, and some sweetness as well. The taste was more roasty and sweet as well. The malts had an apperance, and it finished a bit bitter. Really ran the gauntlet of flavors and passed through like a champ.

brownaler (414) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2003
Forms a small dark tan head with the expected black appearence. Has a lovely nutty taste at the front and a roasted toffee flavor in the back. A nice, comforting beer for Isabel.
