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.

Had this from a tap. Excellent brew. Would drink this everyday if I could. Great mouthfeel and aftertaste. Created my love of stouts.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2004 Bottled, 2001. The mouthfeel on this one is the best thing it has going, very rich and thick; flavors are your usual suspects, chocolate and coffee. Not nearly as sweet as English versions of the style, but though I like sweet stouts I found it well-balanced. A little weak on the nose and head. Good beer, but I'm starting to feel that the brewer is a might overrated.

2004 sweetness really only apparent at the front, very bitter (esp. for a "sweet" stout) finishing. Nice body, but the hops are just too overwhelming here.

This roasty stout would be fit for the great bard.

Drank it. Loved it. Drank another. Loved it again. Found out it is actually a sweet stout, (with lactose), and was surprised and felt guilty. Wonderful brew. Not at all sweet as the genre indicates. Soild, good thickness, nice robust flavor, slightly smokey, is there molasses in this? More crisp than most other stouts I’ve tried (higher carbonation). Despite what the manufacturer states, this is truly an American style stout due to the high carbonation and bitterness. Not too bitter though.

Fruity aroma. Toasty coffee chocolate flavor. Creamy body well balanced by a nice hop bitterness. Delicious beer.

Aurelius (4027) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2001
Decent stout. Pitch black with tall cascading head. Pretty complex flavor. Slight medicinal aftertaste and thinnish palate.

prpplague (247) - Euless, Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2001
an absolute wonderful brew. has everything you dream of in a stout. wonderful nose pleasing aroma, visual dark and forboding. the flavor is perfect, just enough carbonation, with a perfect balance of sweet and hops

Extremely good bottled stout. This beer has as dark a head as I’ve seen. Dense carbonation (small bubbles) maintain mouthfeel throughout the glass. A real winner.

mikenodak (150) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - NOV 3, 2001
Quite flavorul, malty with bitter burnt coffee, bitter chocolate, bitter oatmeal, bitter aftertaste that lingers long after the rest of the flavor has died.
