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.

spikee (96) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Pours nearly jet black with a syrupy tan head. Lacing diminishes quickly. Not much nose to speak of. Tastes of baker’s chocolate, roasted/burnt coffee, cola, spices and a hint of tobacco. Medium-bodied with a cola fizz and an increasingly bitter, salty aftertaste (in a good way). Similar to Rogue’s Mocha Porter. Wouild buy again.

I have had this bottled and on nitro. This is hands down my favorite stout and I have had far more than my current ratings show. This beer has a roasted chocolate aroma that follows in flavor leading into notes of coffee and more roasted chocolate. This is well hopped in perfect balance with the roasty bitterness smoothed out by the oats. The perfect stout.

Pours black as night with a good brown head. Smell is nutty, bitter and malty. The taste is surprisingly smooth. Chocolate and coffee in a perfect blend.

GuinnessGal (93) - Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2008
Pours a dark brown with burgundy highlights. The head is tan and sudsy. Definite taste of roasted barley. It is a delicious beer that I will drink again. Is that really Shakespeare on the bottle?

mcsquint (93) - , Missouri, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Pours opaque black with thick creamy tan head. Aromas of malt, chocolate and coffee. Tastes of chocolate malt, coffee,oats with a chocolate and flowery hops finish . Thick, full mouthfeel. This is one of the very best stouts.

Bassikpoet (93) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Tap at Clark St. Pours a black hole of a beer with a finger of tight bubbles that don’t dissipate at all. Malt, vanilla, and chocolate make up the bouquet. Generally smooth and full-bodied but relatively unassuming.

650ml pours deep dark brown with a creamy tan head. Smells chocolatey and a little floral from the hops. Tastes of chocolate a little coffee and a dry bitter hoppiness.

An excellent oatmeal stout, well balanced with a good combination of hops and malt. Pleasing in appearance and pours with a well defined head.

BUrunner (92) - Indiana, USA - APR 25, 2004
Wow...this is a one great stout!!! Deep chocolate bwon color with an equally dark head. Chocolate-coffee aromas lead you into a gustatory experience you'll never forget. Smooth, rich mouthfeel with deep roasted flavors covering the palate. A dry hoppiness adds to the character of this beer. Finishes somewhat sweet and forever memorable.
