Dark brown color like chocolate with brown head. One of the smoothest stouts I have had. I smell coffee and malt. I taste coffee, dark chocolate, and dark bread. Very good...

Bottle: Jet black, no color, topped with a huge, dark-tan head made of fine bubbles that lasts for seemingly days; chunky lacing left behind. Aroma full of sweetness & roasted grains... small dose of ashy, leafy hops bite the nostrils. Light cocoa powder, smooth cut oats, & a current of creamy sweetness that ties everything together. Deep, robust flavor of heavily roasted malts, nuts, wood, bittersweet cocoa nibs & cocoa powder, & a hint of bitter espresso bean on the very back end. Strong hop presence; earthy, leafy, mildly floral, acting as a good malt offset. Nice creaminess from the oats, which are flavorful in the aftertaste. Lasting, lightly hop-bitter, earthy-cocoa finish. Might be the best beer I’ve had from Rogue.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2014 Always a good choice. Roasted dark chocolate, light coffee, cream and toasted oats. Not the most complex flavors, but great flavors nonetheless.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein schwarzes Bier mit schöner bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, Schokolade. Geschmack sehr röstmalzig, angenehm cremig, schokoladig, erdig.

On draft at the icelandic beer festival. Aroma of some coffee and oatmeal. Lacked more character and the body was too light.

Pours a dark brown with a nice foamy off-white head. The aroma is a combination of oats and dark chocolate, which comes off less appealing than it sounds, unfortunately. Otherwise the beer is fantastic. Has a nice mix of sweet malts, oatmeal, chocolate, and even a touch of bitterness in the taste. Goes down smooth and has an excellent full body feel.

Good balance of everything. The smoke is rounded out by the oats and the chocolate. Very enjoyable and expert stout.
