I haven’t been impressed with much from Rogue.

A little disappointing as far as stouts go. I expected a much fuller flavor with a better ending. Worth buying, though. Good beer for the stout virgin.

Not a big stout fan, but I could handle this one. Reasonable bitterness, full bodied, thick head. Hooray, i finished it.

Damn this is sweet. This is one of THE best stouts Brandon (me) has ever tried. Nice level of bitterness and not overwhelmingly coffe like. A supreme masterpiece that should be any stout lovers daily choice.

I would say that there is more than just a hint of chocolate and coffee. Good, not great! Aftertaste gets more powerful as the bottle goes south. Thats the only draw back to an otherwise excellent stout.

wonderful beer, beautiful brown head, on a dark dark beer. I loved the flavor with chocolate, malty, and the right hops to give it a nice bitter touch. I tasted the coffee in the finish which was very enjoyable. Wonderful beer.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2003 Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is opaque black, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, roasted grain), lightly hoppy (grapefruit). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately astringent. If there's one thing I can't abide, it's a citric/sour stout. And this is one of them. The grapefruit in the otherwise simple aroma puts me off as well. Undrinkable to me, loved by many...hell if I know why. So be it with Old Rasputin, so be it with this one. Third review in two years, that's it for this one.
