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.

This was almost EXACTLY like the sierra nevada stout. the only difference is that i couldn’t discern any chocolate. In fact the only thing I could taste was hops...nothing...but...hops. Not very "sweet stout" like at all. Not very stout like for that matter. But as I sat there drinking and playing guitar I couldnt think of anything really wrong with the beer. Washes voer your entire mouth and NEVER lets go.

Certainly delicious and creamy. The roastiness is perfect, never out of hand. Nice hop bitternessas well.

Black, thick brown head. Huge fresh roasted aroma, light chocolate, organic notes. Smooth mouthfeel, great intense bitter roasted flavor. Hop bitterness is uncovered in the palate, blends nicely with the bitter roastiness. Long finish. Great stout.

Smell and taste the bitterness of the roasted malts. Dark in color, with a bit of a coffee after taste. Good stout.

To be honest, I didn’t want to like this beer. Not a big fan of stouts, and wasn’t impressed with previous tastes of Rogue beers. Beer poured a nice deep black with lots of chunky tan head. Great lacing, and good head retention. Theres a definite hop aroma with a bit of malt and coffee. Taste is as the scent would suggest, but the hops get pushed back. Its a good thing its in a 22oz bottle, because it gets better as you go. Clean finish with a bitter, but thin aftertaste. I like it, I will be trying it again.

Beautiful dark roasted grain and chocolate nose. Similar flavor--very dry. I got absolutely none of the piney hops I hear about here. And I thought that was exactly what was missing. Will try again, without fail.

Very smooth and silky, beautiful frothy head. Great looking, smells just as good and tastes even better. I can always trust the Shakespeare.

As good as Stout’s get... a meal unto itself. One of the few beers that everyone should try!! What every stout aspires to be...

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2003 22oz Bottle in Bar: Poored with a proper tan head. Minimal lacing, but sensational pitch black color. Taste was phenomenal, very smooth creamy taste with stout chocolate and coffee flavors. Tastes of a fine sweet stout. Highly recommended.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2006 Not bad, but didn’t live up to the hype. Another over-hopped micro...I think I will stick to Guinness, Murphy’s, and Beamish.
