Try to shine a light trough this one. By far the darkest beer I have ever seen. Great taste, full and thick head that lasts till the very last drop. This beer gives great head!

Very dark pour, nice balance of hop/malt in the nose. Flavor is roasted malt with a twinge of hops. Nice medium/heavy body. Smooth brew, wish the ABV was a bit higher so you could cellar for a long time.

Sampled from what I believed to be the new Wild Irish Rogue Stout purchased at the LCBO in Toronto, CA. Beautiful bottle, but let me just say up front how much I hate that rogue repackages their beers. I dont know why we put up with this. Now for the rating... Pitch black with a dark, gorgeous brown head; looks like an imperial stout. Smell is big and sweet with chocolate malts and fruity hops. Taste is a good mix of pleasant sweet chocolate and dry/bitter hops. Good lacing on the glass. Easy drinking, almost to the point of being watery. Aftertaste is chocolate and caramel.

Dark, dark in color, small head that stayed around the rim of the glass. Aroma is extrememly roasty, slighty chocolaty. Taste is similar, full of roasted flavors and a hint of sweetness with the chocolate and the toffee flavors associated with stouts. Nice.

Poured a deep black/brown. The head was a nice tan color. The appearance to me was more of a porter than a stout. The smell was roasted chocolate. I liked the flavor with its roasty chocolaty feel. Some minor lacing as it went down. I have yet to sample a bad Rougue. Good beer.

Hmmm, thought that I had added this one already but I guess not. had this on tap and man is it good. Dark in colour with a thin chocolaty brown head. The taste is sweet and roasted malts. Pretty darn good.

poured a deep dark black color with a dark brown head, with some retention not great but okay. flavor was slightly sweet with flavors of chocolate and grain. It finshided with a roasted coffee/hoppy bite.

Im a big fan of stout and this one left me wanting a little more. By no means is this a bad stout, it has a nice chocolate aroma, but it could be better.

Rich milk chocolate aroma which promises a higher alcohol brew. Fully opaque body with large brown head. Excellent lace. Very good initial mouthfeel, with chalky aftertaste. At first sip, doesnt blow your socks off. Maybe needs a little higher alcohol than the 6% it features? Very easy drinking. Has some bite at the finish. A very nice beer that is clearly a cut above. Does it deserve the hype? Im not sure. Probably. Just a little too much on the dry side.
