Boutip (6214) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2004
Bottle: Poured a pitch black stout with a medium brownish head with better then average retention. I was quite surprised at the hoppy aroma with light chocolate/ roasted coffee notes. I guess my expectation (because of the name) were to find real discernable chocolate taste, instead I feel that the overabundance of hops covered the chocolate with a lingering bitterness. A bit more sweet and chocolate taste would have been a better representation of what to expect of a chocolate stout. Nonetheless, this is a very good stout.

Smells heavenly, like the purest milk chocolate pudding with coffee and vanilla notes. I was worried it would be too sweet, but actually its the bitterness thats slightly overpowering. Even a bit of sourness at it warms. Looks and smells fantastic, totally hides the alcohol, has a rich mouthfeel and its evident that they use quality ingredients. Bonus marks for listing said ingredients and other info.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2004 Black as night, complex, delicious and full of surprises. A thick stout with a nice allotment of bitterness. Superior mouthfeel - coats the mouth with smoothness and a bitter chocolate aftertaste. Amazing aroma - sweet with a mouthwatering hint of citrus and a tinge of chocolate. A meal - or a dessert - of a beer.

Crockett (1116) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2004
Pours deep dark brown/black with a big dark firm brown head. Decent lacing. Typical Rogue hopped aroma carrying a gigantic malty milk chocolate nose. Fresh chocolate brownies and roast. Some coffee. Lots of oatmeal and cocoa. Some brown sugar, late maple. Milky smooth and thick with abundant carbonation. Round but a little heavy on the sweet side. Over the top but still terrific.

From the LCBO (Funny how all we Gords seem to post the newest offerings almost simultaneously!!!!). I love Rogue offerings, so when I saw this I "had" to buy it. I am sad to say that my enthusiasm has not been matched by the result. Mind you, its not bad...and as a stout goes, it has nearly all qualities I look for..opaque, rocky tan head, and a smoothness. However, it is the overwhelming chocolate on the nose and in the taste that spoils the beer for me. Okay, okay...so I bought a product, what was I expecting, caveat emptor and all that. However, its not for me. Which is too bad.

22oz bomber from the LCBO. Date code stated it was well within freshness peak. Served at 43deg.F in a thick English pint glass. The pour revealed a black stout that allows no light through the glass. Lovely frothy chocolate colored cap... mild to medium carbonation. Nose is predominated with sweet spicy cocoa tones with some must from the oats lemony hops were just barely detectable. Mouth feel is big with sturdy malty/oat body and predominated by distinct chocolate tastes balanced against grassy hops that mildly bitter the cocoa flavor in the surprisingly silky, light (for a stout) finish. Very reminisant of liquid semi sweet bitter baker's chocolate. A very tasty stout and very drinkable ( I usually dont value stout for easy smooth dinkability). I like this stout....would recommend it and actually prefer it to St. Ambroise Oatmeal stout. One tip: when you pour this from the large bottle, leave 2 fingers in the bottle...swirl it then pour this into your glass.....there is quite a bit of delicious oat and cocoa sediment on the bottom that really aids in the smoothness of the finish.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2004
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from LCBO. Part of Fall 2004 new beers. Tasted in a dimple mug. Pours deep black. Opaque, no light visible through the beverage. Head starts off relatively large, but subsides. Deep brown / tan / tobacco coloured head. Rich. Once the beer settles the aroma is of intense chocolate. Bitter sweet. Taste is of mocha, chocolate. Very nice. Roasted hints and a very well rounded chocolate finish. One of the most intense chocolate stouts I have had in a while. Nice one.

Jet black, no room for light in there. Fizzy dark brown head. Barley malts and chocolates hit you right away in the tastebuds. Coffee and yeast catches up in the aftertaste. The aroma is remisicient of cola. Thank you Oregon! This is a great great brew!
