A: Pours essentially black with a dense, creamy tan head. Nice sticky lacing to go with it. S: Tons of roasted malts on the nose with a strong earthy hop aroma. Plenty of bitter dark chocolate and cocoa powder as well. Not much sweetness, maybe some burnt sugar. T: A moderate level of bitterness with lots of earthy hop flavor to go with it. Cocoa powder and bitter, baker’s chocolate are definitely there. Quite a lot of roasted malt flavor as well. M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation. Was expecting a bit more silky mouthfeel, though. D: Like a lot of Rogue beers, this is good, but not amazing and not really worth the price they charge.

A Black very classic stout. But not boring at all. A good coffee smell, rich roasted almost burned malt flavour. Nice bitter hop and burned malt finish. Just as we like it !!

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2008 Note: Fooled again by Rogue; this was for a bottle of Rogue Warrior Ale: It’s back. Bottle from Sondra. The blue band is red, and the rising sun is gone. The blue trim on the vest is now red - so it’s a two color label - three if you count white. Opaque brown color with a decent tan head. Smells of citrus hop, darker malt, and coffee? Medium plus body with chewy carbonation. Flavor is smooth toasted malt, deal of coffee, and arguably a bit of hop. Putting this in as an APA seems to have been ok in the beginning, but It’s a stout now. So I’m putting it in two places, and the admins can delete whichever rating they choose.
Earlier Rating: 7/19/2007 Total Score: 3.8
Bomber. Something of a mocha aroma. A nearly opaque brown color with a persevering tan head. Full bodied, moderately carbonated, nearly creamy. Starts with coffee, moves to near burnt malt. Sort of causes twinges in the mouth. There’s not a great deal of bitter, and the smooth finish is mostly toasted malt. It’s very good stout.
