This pours nearly black with a very brown head that is medium-bubbled and lasts around the edge of the glass. The nose is strong of chocolate and perhaps a very dark roast with hints of alcohol. The taste is dark chocolate with a bit of an oatmeal flavor in the middle. The end is a bit roasty and bitter on the back and sides of the tongue. This is a very strong stout, and I like it better than the Shakespear.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2005 This is not a good beer. It was an overspowering stout. It was bitter and biting... Had a quite lingering aftertaste. Made me gag as the body was heavy and full, the texture was creamy and the flavor was a rich dark bitter-sweet chocolate with lively carbonation.

Dark brown/black body with thin light brown head. Bitter chocolate aroma and flavor. Smells like a Hershey chocolate factory tour.

Aromatic notes of cocoa and raisen meld well with alcohol heaviness. The body is beautifully crafted - the sweet chocolate cradles the crisp hop bitterness and finishes light and nutty. Wow!

On Tap at Kahootz: AWESOME! Here is a chocolate stout that actually tastes like chocolate, dark chocolate. The dark brown color is enticing, the aroma captures you and the flavor and body confirm the deal. Does Rogue make a bad beer?

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2005 Bottle (650ml). Had put it away for 8 months - wow! Pours thick, opaque black - decent toffee-ish head, creamy. Smells .. oh, like a black forest cake, bitter chocolate, aged fruit preserves. Taste ... dark roasts, best belgian 86% cocoa chocolate, hops trying to get in there, sweet grains. Finishes long, sweet/bitter (depends on your mood!!). Almost chewy. Like my sisters famous oatmeal/sour cream chocolate cake in liquid form. Much better than the first botle I tried - set it aside and enoy it later!

I love this stuff almost as much as I love my two golden retrievers, and thats saying something! One of my favorites in winter. Huge chocolate and coffee tastes. Absolutely delicious to the very last drop.

Opaque dark brown body with a dark brown head. Smells like chocolate & coffee. DAMN, the taste is HUGE. Nice chocolate and hops taste floating around. Man, this beer is everything a chocolate stout should be.

Poured a dark brown with a decent sized tan head. Big chocolate aroma and flavor. More so in the flavor as I drank this one. I had this the same night as a Dark Lord so its going to be tough to really compare them. For sure a great sweet stout, a nice desert beer.
