This is an excellent stout. It has a chocolate/coffee taste to it. Pours very dark and impressive. A bit like the chocolate stout from Rogue but not as sweet and definitely better. So far my favorite stout.

W aromacie trochę owsianki, czekolady, ciemne słody. Czarny, perfekcyjna piana. Bardzo, bardzo kremowy, gładki i aksamitny. W smaku delikatna kawa. Lekka kwasowość w posmaku. Troszkę mało ciała.

Yeah....this is a good standard chocolaty stout, but definitely not the "Best in the World". Taste to me pretty much like their chocolate stout, with a bit more of a hoppy kick. I think I prefer Rogue’s Chocolate Stout slightly better. Only tried them both once...about a year ago, so reviewing this by memory. There are many other similar stouts that sell in 6-packs for way less than this. Not bad to try something new in the Rogue family though. Medium thickess for a stout, not super-heavy. Dark appearance with a mocha-tan head. A very good overall beer, just one of those "Been there, done thats".

Piwo butelkowe w pubie The Horatia. Dla mnie bomba, świetny stout, tylko najpierw musiałem go ogrzać w dłoniach bo butelka była prosto z lodówki. Bardzo ciekawy zapach, taka kombinacja wanilii, kawy, likieru i chmielu. Smak to mocno palona kawa, gorzka czekolada, słodki likier i jednocześnie wysoki poziom goryczki. Nie był aż tak "gładki" od płatków owsianych jak myślałem, ale dzięki nim Rogue jest bardziej pełny w smaku. Bardzo dobre piwo.

It's a nice crisp stout, got a lot of chocolates and toffee flavours. Really well balanced, it's got a lightness that I wasn't expecting, rather refreshing in comparison to the heavier usual style. Really nice stuff!
