Very dark, with a tan head. Big taste with lots of chocolate in the nose and taste. Very full, chewey taste. This is an excellent stout!

3fourths (8036) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 Pours pitch black with no light passing through. Dark brown head of medium size. Very roasted, chalky aroma, with hints of amaretto. Very rich tastes, with emphasis on the back of your tongue. It’s a rough tasting stout, and works very well as a marinade, particularly for salmon fillet. One of my favorite stouts, though at times can be a little musty.

Pretty good but perhaps one of the most over rated beers from Rogue.

Thick black, lingering light brown head. . .rich roasted malts, dark nuts and chocolate. . .there are times when words don’t come to my mind to describe how great something is, this is a time like that -> Fantastic stout!

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2003
Pours a jet black color with a big brown head. Strong aroma of malts, hops, coffee, and chocolate. Flavor is heavy with malted barley, roasted coffee, and mild hints of chocolate. Very thick and rich, with just enough hop presence to accentuate the malts. Excellent stout, and one of my favorites.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - DEC 31, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2003 Smoky malt aroma. Khaki head. Fairly bitter, but hops balanced by roasted barley flavors with hints of coffee. I would have called it a porter if I hadn't seen the bottle.

Near balck opaque liquid with a thick dark tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate and mild coffee. Flavors of mocha, dark chocolate and coffee. Bitterness sensed from both the hops and the malt. Decent balance. Quite smooth on the palate.

This is wierd I have a bottle of the Rogue Wild Irish Stout and it directs me here to Shakespears Stout.... I looked at the ingredients and they are both the same. So Here I am rating this brew. As Shakespear. THIS STOUT IS GREAT!!! It happens to be one of the finest Stouts I have ever tasted!!! I cant see through it when I hold it to the light. The head is a dark brown golden colour. With bitter coffee flavors. This is amazing stuff. I would recomend it!!

Suttree (5144) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 30, 2002
Yumtastic Stout here. Deep brown, almost black, and a sturdy, dark tan head. Coffee flavors dominate, but there is a persistant hop presence (It is a Rogue Beer, after all).
