22 oz. Extraordinary stout, full of flavor and mild roast. The chocolate rounds it out well & nothing is ever intrusive, smooth. Rogue in every aspect.

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 a dark brown, almost black color with a rich brown head. Nice toasted malt flavor with a bit of chocolate. Aroma matches. Seemed a bit thin to me.

Poured from a bottle. Large Brown head that dissipates quickly, but a good lacing. Rich black color. Chocolate and oatmeal aroma. Delicious going down, deserves it’s high rating.

Very dark pour from the bomber almost black with a small head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel and some roasted malts. Taste has some smokiness with some tropical dark fruits and cocoa. Smooth finish.

there is some nice chocolate tones in the nose and flavor, but they go away a bit with the bitter hoppy mouthfeel and finish. Best stout in the world (as Rogue states)? Not really, but it’s a solid complex beer."

Bottle (12oz $2.30): Pours nearly black with nice tan head. Some oatmeal and a little chocolate in the taste followed by quite a bit of bitterness that lingers. I prefer less bitterness in a stout but still nice.

Bottle at home. Black pour, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, molasses, soy sauce and caramel. Flavor is quite bitter, thick roasted malts and quite dry. Nice thick body.
