I think most of Rogue beers are over-rated. Shakespear stout is not only the best from Rogue, ranks high on my favorites.

Nice one. The first time I had it I wasn’t too impressed but I think something I ate eariler messed up my taste. Tried again, was very good. Stay away from anything with sugars for at least an hour when drinking dry stouts!

Dark black powerful stout. Dry, almost harsh, with big bitterness.

Good strong (coffee )roastiness and a healthy hop bitterness that doesnt annoy, but this is not the rich, complex brew I expected it to be.

Found this bottle in the bargin bin at a local store for only one english pound with a best before date of 01 07 2000, so didnt realy expect much. What a shock, poured it out and was bombarded by aromas of licorice, chocolate and coffee. The head quickly dissapeared, but the flavours in the beer soon made me forget that. Excellent mouthfeel and finish, altogether a very pleasant drink. Cannot understand why the store hadnt been able to shift the bottle for two years.

STOUT and gooooood. I like this beer even though I do not like most of the Rogue beers. Quality flavor and very rich indeed. It is a good winter time beer to drink.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2008 like any real he-guy burly macho hombre, i use the word ’beautiful’ somewhat sparingly, you know: grand canyon at dawn, meg ryan... that’s about all that comes to mind. but this stout makes me glassy-eyed as i breathe with tremulous passion: beauuuuuutiful! and it’s not especially the color: sure, it’s so black it would suck the light out of any lesser solar system than our own. it looks like a solvent for weather-proofing phone poles. the head is respectfully bronzed but drippy, not like a grand irish stout on tap that you can sculpt into little animals on the bar top. it’s the aroma and flavor which will write you poetry and make your palate soar like an eagle. you’ve read about the awards and the chocolate and coffee and perfect cascade hop balancing bitterness and blah blah, but if i were stranded on an island in the aleutians and could have just one thing, it would be a reservoir of shakespear. besides meg, that is...

Solid stout, but the aftertaste is horrendous.

Great looking bottle. I enjoyed this beer a lot and would certainly buy this one again. I have had a few Rogue beers and enjoyed them all.
