660mL bottle. amazing aroma! roasted malt is quite evident as well as a good amount of hops. deep dark black colour with a brown chocolatey head. Lots of dark/bitter chocolate flavour, finishes with a nice bitterness. complex and flavourful. I wish I bought some more of this when it was available at the LCBO.

Great sweet stout. Ive been waiting to try this for a while and I wasnt dissapointed. Pitch black dark appearance with a medium dark head. Good roasted coffee aroma. Flavor was a perfect blend of chocolate and light coffee. Some floral finish. Another great Rogue.

As good of a sweet stout that I have had. Chocolate taste and roasted dry espresso made this a joy to drink from beginning to end. I love Rogue.

DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 8, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2005 A fizzy stout, poured a black color with a big fluffy tan head. Macintosh apple, smoked ham, and powdered chocolate comprise the aroma. Chocolate and subdued grilled grapefruit in the start of the flavor, has a dry, roasted-bitter finish. A nice dry stout with fruity highlights.

Drank it out of the bottle like a hobo so it was all about the taste, but I remembered to spill a few drops to see the color. An excellent beer with a wonderful smooth start and finish.

Black color, medium creamy head. Roasted malts, chocolate and cocoa flavor. Mouthfeel is smooth. Somewhat bitter. Full flavor. Smooth taste. Slightly malty. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter. Definitely better than some of their other offerings (Yellow Snow and Dead Guy Ale come to mind).

Another great stout from Rogue. Poured an excellent ebony, with a thin brown head and thick lacing. Aroma was a smooth malty, fruity scent, accompanied by some aromatic hops. The flavor was full and sweet up front, with strong notes of coffee and roasted malt, and it finished with a great bittering hoppiness. Mouthfeel was thick and full, with an appropriate dryness. An excellent all-around stout that will find a regular home in my fridge.
