I thought the aroma was not overpowering, but very delightful. Heavy scent of chocolate, smooth taste and wonderful mouthfeel, and a lovely chocolate-esque aftertaste. I loved this beer, and will be drinking it again when the occasion is right.

The taste is homebrew quality, albeit of the highest degree. I associate this taste with amatuers. It tastes okay, until the aftertaste kicks in. No appreciable aroma, and the appearance is nothing special.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2005
22 oz. bottle. Dark brown with small head. The aroma is definitely chocolaty. There isnt much hop bitterness apparent in the aroma but the roast & chocolate could be masking it. The flavor does have some hops to balance the malt and chocolate. If you want a chocolaty beer, get some of this one. Good beer.

Bottle. Dark brown body, tan head, good lacing on my glass. Aroma is nicely malty and kind of smoky, potent. Flavor is malty, lots of chocolate malt, smoke, hop bitterness, a good lingering chocolate taste in the finish. Smooth and creamy, good level of carbonation. Another great stout from Rogue, Ive had the Shakespeare and have a bottle of the Imperial cellared away to eventually complete the trilogy.

Draft. Blackish beer with a very thin lacing of a beige head. Big chocolate aroma with sweet malt. Sweet chocolate flavor. Easy to drink and very smooth - no harsh flavors.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2006 I had higher hopes for this one. Pours a nice deep black with a pale brownish head. Aroma is inviting...very chocolate like....similar to a a creamy, cafe mocha from Starbucks. Theres a lot of bitterness from the middle to the finish and it doesnt sit very well with the choco-roastiness....very strange to me. I wanted to like this more. Apr 2005....this bottle is much better...gotta up my ratings a tick or so.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Pours deep ruby black with a pretty layer of tawny brown head. Aromas of smooth chocolate and roasts. The complextion of the chocolate aroma changes as the glass warms. Initially a sweet milk chocolate, and richer, darker chocolate as the glass progresses. Great creamy palate. Good roast and coffee flavors. A surprisingly dry finish, with lingering, bitter dark-chocolate. A solid stout with some nice chocolate notes, rather than a chocolate drink with stout hiding somewhere underneath. Terrific!

Thanks to Mr. Facto for this beer.

Pours black with a fizzy dark brown head, almost as dark as the beer itself. The aroma smells like fresh baked semi-sweet chocolate chips. Probably the chocolatiest aroma Ive smelled yet. Taste is of some roasted malt with a sweet dark chocolate taste, with very little bitterness. More chocolatey than Youngs Double Chocolate. I can envision it now, some dark brown cartoon character with a strange accent, holding a bottle and saying, "Everyone wants to get a hold of my Rogue Chocolate Stout!" Body feels somewhat thin and undercarbonated, the weakest point of the beer. This may be my top choice for a good examplar of a dessert beer, battling fiercely for the position with Bells Special Double Cream Stout. Very nice beer.

Smells like opening a bottle of hersheys dark. Pours black with a brown head that laces surprisingly well. Flavor is immediately chocolate, both bitter chocolate, and overtones of milky sweet-ness. This is a rich, thick, stout, milk-shake of a beer. Finish is a satisfyingly bitter chocolate. This is a dessert pint for sure.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2005 Delicious chocolatey aroma. Tastes like biting into a big block of dark chocolate. Nice long-lasting, creamy head. Medium-bitter finish.
