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.

Served cold, tastes better warm. Very full in flavor and dark in taste. This is an awesome stout! Worth every penny, every time.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2004 A good stout. Nice chocolate/coffee bitterness. Large dark brown lasting head with moderate lacing. One to try again.

Smell sense of the aroma actually turns to the taste sense without even taking the first sip. You can taste the chocolate bitterness without letting it hit your taste buds. Somewhat smokey with a clear sense of cocoa or coffee in the closing. Excellent creamy head and best served with a nicely seared lamb chop!

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.
