Rogueís 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.

Drank this beer on St-Patrickís day but that didínt make it any better.Decent head but the mouthfeel is a bit liquid with notes of coffee and black chocolate.Overall,this is a version of the commercial Guinness with more malt but without the great foamy head.Not a very bad stout but not a great one either.Way behind McAuslan stout.

Rogue couldnít make a lousy beer if it tried. One of my favorite breweries ever. I catch them every year at an event called...Sippin by the river in Phila. PA Great beer fdrom Oregon.

Itís a slightly better than average stout, a bit dry, but too chocolate coffee-ish for me (Iím not a big coffee drinker, and I donít like chocolate notes in my beer). If you like chocolate and coffee notes in your stout, then this is a brew for you.

Holy shizzel. This is some great beer. Dark as night, chocolaty, smooth with a great finish. The dude with shades on the label made it that much cooler to drink.

A pretty good stout, not one of my faves but Iíd drink it again. Letís see...brown head that seems thick at first but then disappears when youíre not looking. Nice smell with perhaps a bit of caramel in the nose. Roasted coffee, chocolate tones. Well done bitterness, itís just right. Not sure what the alcohol content is, but if you eat an entire 22 oz bottle on an empty stomach, youíll have a good start to a fun night when youíre through.

No head on this brew, especially out of the bottle. Has a bit of bite, but a actually a bit too much coffee flavor for me.

Thin head, coffee flavors, kind of weak boquet for a stout. More of a bitter stout rather than cream. Wonderfull opaque color, almost black. Looks like Sheafís Stout, tastes much better. Not my favorite stout, but a good brew on the whole. Iíve always like my stouts a good deal lower than room temperature, so that may make my opnions a bit less relevant than most stout drinkers. All in all tho, great label design, a drinkable beer. Hard to calsssify this one, not a íbeginnerís stoutí but I canít see hardcore stout drinkers not looking for more either.

Overrated. I usually agree with the stout-guzzlers here, but Rogue combines a good stouty flavour with a cheap acrid bite that basically ruines it. Reminds me of a horrid Quebecois microbrew mixed with Guinny.
