A very good stout, strong coffee flavor well complemented by chocolate, more bitter than I like my stouts, but still very good, nice and silky texture.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAY 2, 2002
This brew pours a dark enough black that no light particle will ever pass through it. The stiff and fully lasting rocky/creamy head is the color of a chocolate milkshake, and has decent lacing. The bold nose is more hoppy than I am used to for a stout with pine, resin, and some malty caramel dominating with hints of dark chocolate, coffee, flowers, dates, and brown sugar. The flavor is rich, robust and balanced with fair complexity. The ultra-long finish is bittersweet chocolate and espresso. The chewy creamy body has lively carbonation and a chalky feel. Rogue is on top of it’s game.

Delicious, creamy stout. Glorious brown head, and what a delicious coffee/chocolate flavor. One of my new faves!

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2002
Long, moderately bitter finish. Light malty aroma - roasted/burnt overtones, and mild coffee and smoke. Small, frothy light-brown head. Dark black beer. A nice stout (still like Samuel Smith Oatmeal better).

My friend brought this beer over and tols me I had to try it. Now I know why I like this guy! Has a nice coffee-esque smell. Dark as night with a nice brown head. Flavor has a bit of a smoked coffee taste. A very nice beer - easily one of my top 10.

I believe that stout should be the starter beer that all beer-drinkers cut their teeth on. It is gentle, not biting, mild, but it has all the flavors in beer somehow represented. You have the sweetness of malt, the small bite of hops, the almost imperceptible tang of yeast. This stout is no exception. It is welcoming, easy, and flavorful. It’s color is black, it’s aroma gentle, and its flavor well balanced without any surprises (beyond how good it tastes). This is a wonderful stout, and one worth sharing with those who think they aren’t beer fans. They’ll change their minds after a few sips.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2002
Very dark- almost black. Poured into a glass, expecting a large head, but the head was actually small, but lasting. Excellent aroma of chocolaty malt/sweet and roasted aromas with some hop presence. Awesome taste- by far the best stout I have ever had. Sweet maltiness on the toungue at first with a nice balnce of hops, when it gets to the back of the tongue. Will definately have again and again.
