Smells of chocolate, and roasted malts. Very sweet smell in general. Color is complete black, with a very nice darker cream foam head. Taste is smooth and thinner. No real bitterness from hops until the end, and its slight at that. Flavor is characterized mostly from its overall sweetness. It doesnt have aÒmu¦ticularly chocolatey taste, more of a creamy feel.

Black w/ cascading light brown head. Nice lace. Roasted malt (coffee, chocolate) nose w/ lovely wafts of hops. Smooth, creamy feel. Complex flavour: coffee, bitter chocolate, burnt brown sugar, caramel, smoke & even some pine & grapefruit from the cascade hops. Finish is long & appetizingly bitter.

Radek Kliber (6589) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 10, 2003
Almost black whith fine small white foam circle . Sweet refined and soft in aroma . Milk chocolate is present that adds its creaminess . Same goes to the flavours . Soft but not with out its specific Rouge style . Under sweet mellow chocoloate pop up nice gentle bite of cascade hops . Nice !

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - APR 9, 2003
Pours a deep black, with a creamy dark head, quickly dimishes to almost no lacing. Aroma is roasty, smoky, some chocolate, lightly hoppy (floral mostly). Flavor is strong with the chocolate and roasted malts (coffee), with a mild hops bitterness showing in the finish. Very smooth and creamy in the mouth.

Not normally my style of beer but this one was very nice. It's so thick, you'll need something to wash it down with. Nice balance in the flavor.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2003
A nice stout, although I prefer Rogue Chocolate Stout. Its chocolately, roasted, and somewhat dry flavor is finished by a hint of sweetness and lasting bitterness. Also a bit on the hoppy side. Not in the same class as my favorites in the style, Bells Kalamazoo Stout and Bells Double Cream Stout.

Yummy big black stout from Rogue. Rich in flavor but not overpowering. Well balanced.

jamdead (8) - Ashland, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2003 does not count
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2004 Pours a deep dark brown hue, with a tan head. Superb chocolate flavor, really solid malt profile with enough hops to keep things very balanced.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - MAR 28, 2003
Huge dark tan head, pours as black as midnight. I smell hints of coffee and malt in the aroma. Very smooth and drinkable, zero carbonation in the mouthfeel and heavy on the malt flavor. Maybe a hint of chocolate in the aftertaste.

Different. Very malty, blackest hell. Not much coffee. I had higher expectations, but it is still very good.
