COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2003 Very dark, almost completely black body with light, watery texture. Head is tan in color and does not stick. Loads of flavor, a true assault on the senses with bitter hoppiness and roasted flavors. Personally, I think it was a little too hoppy and burnt. Much of the semi-sweet chocoloate flavor didn't really become pronounced until near the end of the bottle. This stout is more bitter than sweet. For a sweet chocolate stout experience try Mackesons XXX Stout.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 27, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2004 Black with brown highlights, high effervescent head that settles into a thin layer of whipped foam. Big roasty, bitterweet aroma, some vinuous notes (dark, overripe fruit). Very roast flavors of slightly sweetened coffee and coacoa. Generous cascade hoppiness give the illusion of dryness. Bitter, lingering finish. Very nice.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 21, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2006 Wonderful dark chocolate appearance with an aroma of chocolate covered coffee beans. Even noticed some peat smokiness. Full bodied and enjoyable. Lots of malt and well balanced with the Cascade hops. The finish comes through with a slightly bitter roasted malt flavor. This is one of the best regular stouts out there.

I have yet to be disapointed with anything I have tried from Rogue. Almost reminded me of Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout, a little more of a mocha flavor in this one. Creamy right to the finish.

slightly sweet roasted aroma, the nitro watered it down really hurting the great choclate maltiness I love so much in the bottled version

Stout?!? To thine own self be true. Did somebody mis-label this as a stout? Unless my tongue did mistake this, I could swear that this is a porter. Smokey. I do now remember the poor creature, small beer

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2007 A wonderful, wonderful stout. Very creamy, I’m writing from memory, will have to re-rate next time I sample it.

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 (8211) - 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.
