This beer is almost too good for me. Real strong taste, very thick, the kind of beer I need to ease into.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2004 wow, this is a great beer, so good infact that i called my friend who is also a big beer drinker and told him about it. pours black as night, thick brown head, good smell, retract my statement about samuel smith's oatmeal stout being my favorite stout, this one just blew sammy out of the water.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 20, 2003
Aroma of port, plums, coffee and sharp hoppiness. Pours opaque black, head is tan with nice lacing. Mouthfeel is in the average range for maltiness, seems to show up more towards the end. Flavours of coffee, oak notes, smokiness. Alcohol at the end and slight hops. Kalamazoo Bells is the best stout I have had and this doesn't touch it. A good beer though.

presario (4800) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 20, 2003
Thick black pour with dark brown head. Sweet coffee aroma. One taste is like espresso, another of warm chocolate. Hop aftertaste echoes mildly in the mouth. Competing flavours of chocolate, nuts and especially coffee, vary in strength sip to sip. Very delicious, mouth feel is smooth but not as smooth as expected. Almost like a very tasty dusty coating is left on your tongue.

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.

Rich sweet aroma. Pitch black color. Tan head. Great sweet coffee and cream flavor with a chocolate finish. A great stout.

jgb9348 (4972) - 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.
