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.

From bottle. Deep black with creamy, dark tan head. Aroma is chocolate malt shake, light smoke and roast, and oatmeal. Taste is similar, with a dark chocolate note and a pleasing grain flavor. The mouthfeel is smooth and substantial, with a long-lasting smokey chocolate finish.

Nice slight chocolate hints. Good palate balancing some of the roast taste. All in all decent base version. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark brown to black with little or no head. Appears somewhat thin. It has a faint coffee smell but little flavor to speak of. There is no harsh alcohol feeling. The slight taste of flavor rolls quickly over the tongue and leaves a bitter aftertaste on the back of the roof of the mouth. Flavor dissipates quickly. Not what I was hoping for.

Une grosse bouteille. Une belle robe noire avec une mousse beige. Un nez de chocolat et de café. Difficile de faire mieux. Une bouche soyeuse aux saveurs de chocolat et de café au moka. Une finale amère rafraîchissante et facile. À compter parmi les classiques.

Punchy tangy aroma. Good dark appearance. Quite a bitter malty flavour. Wouldn't rush back. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml bottle. Black pout, tan head. Like pretty uch any rogue beer it looks nice. Aroma is herbal with some roasted notes. Flavor is similiar, with a smooth oat delivery and a hint of fruitiness. Pretty nice.
