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.

Jet black body with a good mocha colored head. Great chocolaty roasty aroma with tons of coffee. The aroma is very strong and delicious. The flavor has TONS of roast malt with coffee and chocolate in the background. Bitterness is pretty high for a stout, but Rogue is as Rogue does. I can’t get any hop flavor off this one. Good heavy body but not thick. It doesn’t make much sense to say, but it makes sense in my mind. All the body is right up front and it slims down almost immediately. A great stout all around.

Nice brown head. Aroma: flowers and pollen, impressive and refreshing. The taste is dynamic and tart. Long aftertaste.

Drank it out of the bottle like a hobo so it was all about the taste, but I remembered to spill a few drops to see the color. An excellent beer with a wonderful smooth start and finish.

Amber color. Creamy, caramel head, mostly lasting. Brown-black hue. Heavey hoppy taste, heavy malty taste but balanced. Sweet, brown sugary initial flavor. Smooth palate.

Appearance was very black with tan head. Aroma was roasted coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. Taste is chocolate with really bitter or dense cappichino. This stout has a great palate and leaves a thick mouthfeel. Can taste the hops in the finish. A very good stout.

Never been a huge stout fan until now. Great black color with a rich head. Nice chocolate aftertaste and roasted flavor. A very enjoyable and nice sipping beer.

Rich in every way -- deep and dark, with a medium body, roasty aroma, and a pleasantly large amount of bitterness to hold it all together. Very nice.

uglybastard (101) - Riverside, California, USA - JUL 13, 2002
Carmel, toffee, hoppyness in the nose. Smells fresh like from the local brewpub. Big, brown, thick head. Coffee-like in apperance. Coco bitterness, some carmel flavors with a slight burnt flavor in the end. More carbonated than most stouts. This is a truly beautiful beer.

Jet black with a dark chocolate head. Head retention is nice . aroma is of roasted malt, chocolate, and a little acohol is detected. the taste is a near perfect balance of roast chocolate malt and hoppy bitterness. The finish has a little crispness to it. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. The alcohol warms nicely. Drinkability is enhanced by the overall smoothness and balance. My new favorite stout.
