Woah, that’s a full chocolate stout.... all the way. DOUBLE CHOCOLATE STOUT... ohmygod! Pours a dark brown basically black with a creamy head that leaves some lace. The aroma is simple enough some mild chocolate and some dark chocolate with a mild fruity note. The flavor is all things chocolate, the brilliant thing is that they sort of don’t hit you all at once. Up front it’s some hershey’s syrup... which to me is always off putting, except in this case it is fleeting and nice for a moment before it gets cloying and annoying. There is plenty of bitter cocoa but there seems to be more darkish milk chocolate throughout. there is some blackberry and a mild earthy hoppiness. They’re really not kidding with the name of this one, it’s pretty damned chocolatey. SSSteve (4006) - - AUG 19, 2010
22oz bottle. black under a large, creamy brown head. aroma is awesome with chocolate ice cream. i wish air smelled like rogue double choco stout. palate has a melted chocolate consistency. very thick....like drinking mud. flavor has a real melted chocolate thing going on with some sharp, biting citrus hops. a warmth in the finish. while the chocolate flavor is superb, i think the hops only distract from the purpose here. still, i think it’s pretty awesome. zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2010
(bottle - 750 ml) Dark black pour with a very dense and creamy looking tan head. Big roasted malt and cocoa aroma with some light hints of sweet chocolate. Flavor is a big roasted barley, coffee and chocolate mix at the start with a really nicely roasted coffee and chocolate middle. Bitter and roasty at the finish with a big and thick body. Really tasty. Travlr (26246) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Draught at Churchkey. Dark brownish maroon color, brown head. Aroma of strong chocolate liqueur. Taste is similar. Boozy and syrupy, somewhat unpleasantly so. ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - AUG 8, 2010
750ml bottle from grape & gourmet. pours a deep, rich black with a thick, creamy, chocolate milkshake head leaving a thick ring of lace. aroma is great, exactly what i expected from this one, with rich cocoa, bitter, dark chocolate icing, brownie crust/edges, and hints of lactose sugar backed by subtle hints of coffee grinds, caramel, and roasted malts. flavor follows suit and is equally delicious with rich, bitter, raw, dark chocolate, mocha coffee, and roasted malts with iced chocolate cake and a bit of cream peaking through the bitter, roasty finish. palate is full bodied with nice carbonation yet still creamy on the tongue. overall, a big chocolate stout that achieves exactly what it sets out to do. damn tasty.

Bottle - 750mL painted red and capped. Pours pitch black with a two-toned brown and dark brown head. Rather unique looking but they merge together quickly. Strong chocolate aroma along with roasted malt, cocoa, light coffee and chocolate cake/brownies. Taste is strong, bitter chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, cocoa, burnt brownies and chocolate cake. Body is medium-full with a lingering bitterness and a bubbly carbonation. Ends with more big chocolate notes, light coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate cake. Though it’s sort of one-dimensional, being a chocolate beer, it’s very tasty.
