I am not a fan of stouts. This stout gave me a boner. Smells of bourbon, vanilla and a deep roastiness from the center of middle earth. Much drier than it smells. Sweet, chocolatey, slightly caramely and finally awesome great stout man G-rat

Nice smoot stout with different reflections of sweetness, hops and finishes with right amount of roastiness.

very thick dark tan head. Pitch black body didnt let any light through when held up to it. Nice stout aroma, a little bitter but very nice stout. Not so much on the sweet side pleasant taste. coffe aftertaste. Very nice going down.

Bottle 54F Pours darn near black with a modest foamy dark tan head which rather coarse bubbles left after a minute. No real lacing. Aroma is distrinctly chocolate and molassas. Bittersweet chocolate is the main player in the flavor. A little more bitter/hopps than other Sweet Stouts recently. The feel is heavy and thick like I think it should be, the finish lingers a bit bitter. Mo\derate/low carbonation. Quite good.

Sampled at Empire Brewfest. Sweet chocolate roasty aroma. Very sweet and chocolately. Willy wonka style. Very tempting aroma. Opaque black with a tan head. Head could stand to be a bit darker. Smooth, sweet chocolate taste with some bitter roastiness. Could use a bit more body. Still a very very good beer.

Damn Rogue makes some great beers and this is no exception. Dark, roasty, with tons of fruit and hops on the nose. Dont pass it up if you see this one on your favorite brew sellers shelf.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2010 Pour is black and oily with a thin tan head. At cooler temps there is hardly any aroma, but as it warms the scents of chocolate and burnt malty come through. Flavor is bitter chocolate with smooth oily mouthfeel. Damn fine stuff.

Havent had this in a long time. 22oz bomber from the grocery store. Pour is oily brown-black with a very minimal head of tan-cream lace. Aroma is roasty, creamy, and chocolaty, with a hint of vanilla. Flavors are a little dulled by the cold temperature, but Ill let it warm up. The finish is obviously roasty. As it warms, I can taste the chocolate notes. The biggest crimes against beers this good are their availability. No one craves a beer that they can have any where and at a reasonable price.

06.29.04 Bomber. Rich black with glowing ruby highlights, fine head. Thick aromas of chocolate, roasted malt. Potent stuff, mean, complicated, and bitter. Reminds of very sharp chocolate, finishes with burnt coffee notes. Typical Rogue effervescent but smooth texture. So available and so good, its another one of those beers that makes you wonder why you dont drink it more often.

Sweet chocolate nose. Taste is roasted coffee and chocolate with some hop bite. Very full flavored brew. Everything blends well.

Mocca and chocolate in the aroma. Dry coffee flavour and loads of mocca. Bitter and dry coffee palate. The finish is a nice, smooth and round chocolate experience.
