Very good stout. Similar to the chocolate stout if you tone down the chocolate flavor quite a bit. On the plus side it gets rid of the chalky taste also in that brew. I enjoyed it a lot.

The head on this one is everlasting, if only it were creamier. The aroma is a little stinky from the cascade hops but understandable, The more it breathes the more malt that comes out. Its not Rogues best but it is compelling like the early English author.

I would say that there is more than just a hint of chocolate and coffee. Good, not great! Aftertaste gets more powerful as the bottle goes south. Thats the only draw back to an otherwise excellent stout.

The beer pours an abundant brown frothy head. The aroma is not too aggresive but reveals a sweet/malty/sugary concoction on the horizon. Just like I thought. The Flavour is intitially watery but then some complexity is introduced to the palate. I taste black pepper, roasted malts, water, hops, bitter coffee with a creamy texture, and with a delightful after taste. This beer has a dessert quality to it and is actually a very drinkable lightish beer. Not at all over bearing or Viscid. I enjoyed this Sweet Stout very much and will have it again and again. Salud!

It starts with a slight light brown head. The taste is rich and malty. The mouthfeel is full. The aftertaste is chocolatey with a bit of bitterness. Great brew.

No doubt this is a great stout and one of my favorites. But, after some recent revelatory experiences, I have to say itís a fairly simple stout, just done well. There isnít anything that pops out but itís very well rounded and drinkable.

Aroma: Rasins, chocolate, coffee. Appearance: almost black with a nice head that fades too quickly but does leave a nice lacing. Taste: Dark fruits, chocolate, coffee, and a touch of hops. Palate: Medium, creamy, soft carbonation, short finish. Overall: Itís a good beer that is very drinkable but itís not "great" in any way.

This is another example of the fine beers put out by Rogue Ales. This Shakespeare Stout is a beer that I think William Shakespeare himself would be proud to drink. It pours a nice, dark color with a fairly big tan head. The aroma and taste are of coffee and caramel with some molasses. For all the great flavors in there, it’s not overly sweet, This one, if I remember correctly, was a bit more fizzy than usual. Overall, an excellent beer that I highly recommend everyone to have at least once.
