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.

Bottle at home. Black pour, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, molasses, soy sauce and caramel. Flavor is quite bitter, thick roasted malts and quite dry. Nice thick body.

Love it, thick and wonderful. Think of dark secluded alleyway filled with secret hidden dark mystic evil excellence.

Muggus69 (1273) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2014
650mL bottle Near flawless jet black body with a dense, well-sized pale brown head holding. Excellent intensity on the nose; dark chocolate, baked cookies, porridge (in a good way, if that’s possible!?), soy sauce, orange & citrus, and woody hops. Moderate carbonation, creamy texture with a full body. Bit less intense on the body, but still plenty to enjoy; chocolate, caramel, orange, pine, dried leaves, touch of bread. Moderate bitterness on a medium-dry finish. Really good stuff, sets the bar high for the Oatmeal stout!

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - SEP 4, 2014
Dry oatmeal stout with yellowish beige head and very dark brown, almost black colour. Strong coffee-like roasted malts in the nose, raisins, bitter chocolate, leather, tonic water, bayleaf... Taste roasted bitter from beginning to end, very full, creamy and oily mouthfeel, chocolate, dried plums, with a strong citrussy hop bitterness coming up in the end - too strong for this style, if you ask me. Otherwise very interesting, though.

DeanF (1729) - Nunavut, CANADA - SEP 2, 2014
Nice very dark brown body with modest but solid head. Aroma is heavy on the hoppiness, I’d prefer some more barley to shine through to remind me it’s a stout. Flavour is strong on the hoppiness with a hint of chocolate, some coffee. But those hops, they drown a lot of the nuance out. This was sampled at room temperature, perhaps with some chillin’ there would be less illin’.

Bif (1563) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours a solid black color with a tan head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, bit of oatmeal and fresh grains. Taste of roasted malts, dark chocolate and oatmeal. Distinct bitterness and a dry finish. Full body, rich and creamy texture, with lots of character. This beer sets the bar for others to be compared to.
