750 ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a thin brown head. Aroma is of roasted malt and chocolate. Strong roasted chocolate malt flavor that dominates the palate. Creamy mouthfeel with lingering dark chocolate finish. Very nice. reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 4, 2011
750ml bottle labeled at 8%ABV pours black in color with two and a half fingers of light brown head which leaves a very nice lacing on side of glass. Aroma is mostly butterscotch and chocolate. Taste is a rich roasted malt sweetness with some butterscotch and chocolate and a moderate hoppy bitter finish. This is a smooth tasty brew with a medium body and carbonation.

On draught at WOB, Pitch black with a creamy khaki film. Amazing chocolate aroma, milk chocolate , cocoa nibs and roasted malts. Creamy full body. slightly dry finish. Bitter chocolate flavors, hints of vanilla and espresso. Nice balance of chocolate and malts . Really nice one. ExpendableHero (934) - Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Pours jet black, with a brown head. Aromas of milk chocolate and coffee. Taste is clearly of milk chocolate, bittersweet coffee, and some molasses. I was expecting something sweeter, but the notes of bitter, dark chocolate match the sweeter chocolate. Very smooth, and easy to drink. Tasty, but not as chocolaty sweet as I was led to believe. I will buy another bottle later to see if it is better the second time around. boFNjackson (4230) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Bottle @ The BeerMongers... Poured jet black with a light brown head. Nose had significant chocolate syrup and mild roast. Sort of dry with a thinnish mouthfeel. Roast and ash that mixed with a toasted sweetness and chocolate tones. Some molasses bittersweetness.

750ml bottle: Pours a dark black with a nice tan head. Aroma is strong chocolate with some nutty undertones. Taste is very chocolate, almost too much on most levels. Aftertaste is a tad bitter. Not overly complex, mostly chocolate, chocolate. Good beer, but I would not necessarily buy another. MaltOMeal (1094) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2011
On tap at the Flying Saucer in Houston. Pours black with a brown head. Nose is of chocolate syrup. Taste is of chocolate syrup. Mouthfeel is thick, syrupy and mouth-coating. A bit one-dimensional and overly sweet. Tasty, in small quantities. Not a lot going on here other than alcoholic chocolate syrup. Would be great on vanilla ice cream. djd07 (16289) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2011
On tap at Queen Vic. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head leavimg good sticky lacing. The aroma is a Dark chocolate and nuts with light roast. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet syrup chocolate and marshmallow and a nice lingering light smoke finish. Easy to drink, a very impressive Imperial stout from Rogue. stabzmcgee (72) - Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Aroma is perfect. That of straight chocolate and caramel. Appearance is nice with a healthy tan head upon pour that laces into a halo. Brown cocoa like rings circle the bottom of my snifter. Tastes of candy bar- faux or milky way. Amazing with icecream. Palate is extremely smooth and creamy. Perfect carbonation. Overall my favorite x SudsMcDuff (8541) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2011
