jpknight22 (171) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Thick, syrupy pour, chocolate head - very reminescent of St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout. Silky presence in the glass. Soy nose, creamy palate. Lacks a little in the initial flavor punch, but is quickly replaced with a semi sweet chocolate aftertaste.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Nice looking stout in the glass, with a decent sized tan head. Aroma is toasty cocoa/coffee and hops. Flavor is complex, oats, chocolate, coffee and sweet malt, with a back end bitterness that for me sort of took over. Definitely better as it warmed and I did enjoy, but overall the balance is not quite there for me to put forth a real high rating.

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Black in the glass, light brown head of coarse, stout bubbles and mammoth in size. This bottle is a bit long left in the fridge, thus poor lacing, but usually a thick, glass coating lace. Lacing suffered, but mouthfeel is still rather silky, lots of lively carbonation and detonation of those lovely stout bubbles, full bodied. Aroma is yeasty sour, toasty bitter and a milk-dark chocolate hybrid. Thick malty undertones of chocolate just carrying on enough to salvage your palate from big bitterness of toasty, brief citrus that vanishes, and an aftertaste lasting long of very toasty bakers chocolate. Very bitter, very lovely, smoothe, beautiful. Dont waste the bottle if youre not in the mood for something powerful.

Boutip (6130) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2004
Bottle: Poured a pitch-dark beer with a huge head with standard retention for this style of beer. Aroma is quite complex with a mix of roastiness and choclate, which bring some very enjoyable sweetness. Carbonation is good with a strong body. Taste is quite similar to aroma with the roastiness and chocolate coming out very nicely. The end is more sweet then dry which I enjoyed. Overall, a truly great sweet stout.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2004
Black colour with glints of ruby. Thick frothy and slightly rocky light brown head. Roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. Deep roasted flavour with coffee, dark chocolate, and a subtle nuttiness. Lingering and burnt bitter finish. Rich and smooth mouthfeel, light oiliness.

This is the best stout Ive had. Jet black beer on a nice brown head. The nose is of hops and sweet roasted malts. Its smooth with a thick mouthfeel. Bitterness is very balanced.

DanielBrown (4425) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2004
Bottle from Only Fine Beer (Bottles). Jet black - poured a lustrous, oily richness, with a short beigie head, which lasted throughout. Sweet hoppy aroma - just like previous Rogues I've tried. Rich mouthfeel, well balanced with some sweetness and pepper. Some smoke, light chocolate and a lingering bitter coffee aftertaste. Remains easy drinking, very tasty.

Definitely a very good stout, with a pronounced chocolatey aftertaste, but not especially noteworthy. Certainly this is better than anything you are likely to find in your local supermarket, but not one to die for. Flavor could be more complex, though it is very good. Nice overall apperance. Not very bitter at all, which some people like in a brew of this style. Worth a try for sure, but I'll try something new next time rather than buying this again.

Wow...this is a one great stout!!! Deep chocolate bwon color with an equally dark head. Chocolate-coffee aromas lead you into a gustatory experience you'll never forget. Smooth, rich mouthfeel with deep roasted flavors covering the palate. A dry hoppiness adds to the character of this beer. Finishes somewhat sweet and forever memorable.
