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 (14507) - 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 (8429) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2011

Wow, its like they put some hershey’s syrup into it like chocolate milk! Great aroma, although the real chocolate doesnt come through in the aroma, but hits you like a ton of bricks on the first sip. Perfect black color with a brown head, very drinkable, the taste hides the abv a little too well, its like a beer float, so delicious, then BAM! your feeling the alcohol, oh well, just makes it that much more enticing.

Intense chocolate and coffee aroma. Black body and thick tan head. There’s just the right amount of carbonation to balance the strong cocoa flavor. Good alternative to a typical imperial stout. rejtable (2675) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2011
Man oh man. Feel like I’ll have diabetes by the end of this bomber. What a huge beer. Nose is massive dark chocolate. In the mouth big chocolate and espresso beans. Mouthfeel is very thick. Pour pitch black with light head. This is for me like lobster and a few other guilty pleasures, something I’d have once a year. That’s not taking anything way from it, fabulous beer. vtafro (7445) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Draft. Black pour with creamy tan head. Chocolate, molasses, touch of herbal and earthy tones. Abv is hidden well, chocolate and dark cocoa dominated, but that’s what was expected. Reynolds314 (3450) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 10, 2011
People really love these chocolate stouts by rogue and I dont know why I keep trying them. They taste like cocoa powder and not much else too me. I drink it and I get sweet cocoa powder. I smell it and I get hot cocoa. I dont know, its not bad but I dont see the appeal.
