Well, the name had me pumped up. It sounds like it should be amazing. And it is good, but still somewhat of a letdown... Very smooth light chocolately taste.

(gabf'03) After the first sip hit the tongue, I had to wonder if the expresso oxidized a bit as the taste was like day old coffee from 7-Eleven. Without the chocolate doughnuts. I can only hope that this keg fell off the back of the truck on the way to GABF.

You walk into Widmer, carefully hiding a Rogue Chocolate stout under your jacket. You proceed to order a Collaborator Milk Stout, and drain half of it. Then, in one deft move, you open the Rogue and pour it into your pint glass of Milk Stout. You then take a drink.....and you're almost half way to how awesome this beer is. Huge presence of chocolate, coffee, and milk. The milkiness helps to hold up the great malt character. Incredibly flavorful. By far the best beer I had at the Spring Beer and Wine Fest here in Portland. A worthy beer for my 400th!!
