Had this on tap at ’Black Bear’ in Morgantown, WV while on a little vacation with the best quesedilla I’ve ever eaten. Sat down at the bar and ponied up $3.50 for a pint (eeek) while watching the Olympic gymnastics. Those Romanians are HOT! Anyway, poured with a super-this tan head and smelled of roasted smores, malt and caramel. Smells delicious and it is a remarkably smooth stout with a tiny bitter after-taste. Mostly chocolatly, with roasted nuts, vanilla and a musky feel coming into the picture. I had two pints and it was well worth it!

Bottle. Deep brown with a tan head. Chocolate malty aroma, very pleasant. Flavors include oats, caramel, and chocolate malt, all blended together well. The other flavors fade away leaving a gentle smoky chocolate malt aftertaste. Rogue hit the nail right on the head with the term "earthy" printed on the bottle. One of the most mellow, well blended stouts I’ve tried, none of the flavors are dominant yet they meld together very well.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [22 oz. bomber] Dark black color with some red highlights and a thick tan head. Rich and roasty chocolate, malt and coffee aroma with a hint of hops. Very roasty and toasty burnt malt and chocolate aroma with a mild smoky finish and a bitter hop aftertaste. Very nice. Great flavor.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2008 On tap. Creamy head tops this beautiful black body. Classic roasted coffee flavor that doesn’t overpower. A great stout for sure.

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - SEP 7, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2006 bottle 22 oz. Dark brn/blk w slight ruby tint, no light through. Very large tan/brn head that held up fairly well, moderate lace. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is dark roasted malt & bitter chocolate w some floral hops. Flavor is rather dry & bitter dark roasted malt w a slightly burnt characteristic. A bit sharp & short on smoothness & richness. Lacking real depth & complexity. Large slug of sediment that came out in chunks ( a sign of "too old" for me). Bet it would be significantly better fresher or from a keg. Will have to try again and hopefully get a fresher bottle. 10/23/05: I’m raising this up .4 but want to leave the original rate. Bottle 22 oz. Ultra drk brn w huge lt brn head that held up well, lace forms in blobs like continents on the globe. Aroma is rich, creamy, drk roast malt & grain w bittersweet chocolate & a moderate floral hoppiness. Flavor is rather dry w dark rst malt & grain, bittersweet chocolate & balanced very well with the hops. A significant bitterness hits early on and carries well into the finish. Pushing the border of full bodied. No alcohol taste detected. There is a noticable trace of spiciness and complexity. This stout falls into the lower end of the sweetness scale which is just right for me. Looking foreward to enjoying this again. I’ll bet its even smoother & yummier on tap & could well hit a 4. Had it on tap. Bumping it up to 3.9

On draft at the Flying Saucer in Memphis. Surprisingly good. Rich brew, not too roasted, a well rounded beer.

Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 2, 2004
Poured one of the darkest heads around, on top of a midnight body. Big and roasty, it has a well balanced bitter/malty flavor. Very nice.

3.5
desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2004
Pours an oily black with a dark brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate. Flavor is of a bitter chocolate maltiness with notes of roasted oats and more bitterness from hops. Finishes dry and sweet.

4.2
Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Beautiful stout with a pitch black body under a creamy brown head! Roasted malt and plenty of coffeee in the aroma. Sweet milk chocolate also. Flavor is dominated by coffee with bitter hops and citrus. Dry finish. A delicious stout!

A damn black and hearty beer. Pours a pretty tan/brown head and has a slight smokey aroma to compliment the strong coffee and bittersweet taste. I can taste a hint of alcohol warmth. Earthy, the way a stout should be. Cheers to Rouge.
