Kind of a disappointment, but I had very high expectations. Head similar to that of a root beer float, dark and frothy. Sweet roasted nose, slightly acidic taste. As it warmed, it took on sort of a roasted pale ale taste...hops made a nice appearance in the end. Simon (girlfriends dog) REALLY liked this beer. He went apeshit when I took it from him.

A decent stout. It had a nice flavor but the finish was a lil too overbearing of coffee.

RE-RATE 7:29:02 Just doesn’t blow me away. Its pretty good but not quite the world beater I once thought it was. A beautiful looking beer. Dark as night with a big head. Great aroma. Nice coffee/chocolate flavors. A great stout.

Just a great stout. Great coffee, carmel aroma. Good color. Great first sip almost a hint of vanilla mixed in with the coffee and carmel. Finishes not quite as good as it starts, but finish still has enough bitterness to satisfy. I buy it often and recommend it to anyone who has not tried it.

Simply excellent. A nice black color with a dark tan head and a thin lace. Thick roasty aroma with a very nicely balanced roasted barley flavor and a light chocolate finish. one of the best stout’s I’ve had yet.

Rogue is an excellent stout but I certainly wouldn’t call it a sweet stout.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2003 Delicious on tap and delicious in the bottle. Aroma is roasty with a little vanilla. Opaque, rich, and flavorful. Roasted barley shines in the flavor with hints of dark chocolate and bitterness. Excellent!

Carmel, toffee, hoppyness in the nose. Smells fresh like from the local brewpub. Big, brown, thick head. Coffee-like in apperance. Coco bitterness, some carmel flavors with a slight burnt flavor in the end. More carbonated than most stouts. This is a truly beautiful beer.

Very nice stout. A little bit of an alcohol aftertaste. Rich flavor.
