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.

Very pleasantly surprised. Beautiful head, very full taste. Rates with my favorite regular stouts (Brooklyn Chocolate & Storm King). Am at this moment sipping a Rogue Chocolate Stout, which, in comparison, is thin and less complex.

Robust stout with great character and style points in my book. Had this on draft at the Yard House in Las Vegas, Nevada. Burnt malt and chocolate in the initial taste. Mouthfeel is heavy...like thick espresso. Finishes smooth and mellow.

Very tasty, smoky and bitter. The aroma was a little off, but the flavor more than made up for any inconsistencies.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2009 Pours a deep brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is near off the charts, sweet but well balanced with the mild bitterness, hints of milk chocolate and roasted malts. Body is light to medium and tastes of sweet chocolate linger on tongue. Definately one of my favorite stouts, Shakespeare Stout is easy to drink and tastes phenominal.

Pours dark brown almost black hue with a light brown frothy head. Aroma is a little smoky and diffcult to pinpoint for me. Taste is a nice smooth bitterness bite then a over the top smoke finish. Nice body. Decent stout , not one of my tops.

Served on the nitro tap at the rogue public house in portland. The stout resembled Guinness in appearance only. Taste blew the irish imbiber out of the water literially. taste is of chocolate, coffee, and malty goodness. i get a hint of maltballs when drinking this beer. i have had it in the bottled form and prefer it that way. The nitrogen takes away some of the complexity of this one.

You can cut this with a knife. This is one of the thickest beers I have tried to date. Plus the roasted malt and chocolate back ground really shined through. Excellent stout.

Black with a thick tan head. Nose is roasted malt and light hops, kind of weak though. Flavor is kind of basic roasted malt and chocolate. Slight hoppy bitter aftertaste along with the roasted coffee finish. Overall, kind of disappointing.
