3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured black with a very large light brown rocky head that was mostly diminishing and had good lacing. The aroma was of burnt cereal malts, mild resin hops and an earthy doughy yeast with strong notes of coffee and dark chocolate. It tasted mildly sweet with a hint of coffee at first then went to a slightly bitter-sweet coffee flavor that had a nice hint of chocolate and was mildly hoppy at the finish with the flavor lingering for an average amount of time. Mouthfeel was full in body and creamy in texture with a flat carbonation. Overall a nice stout, great on a cold winters night.

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!
