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! TakushBrewer (19) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - AUG 29, 2004
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. hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Poured a dark black with a huge (4 finger) brown head. Chocolate and coffee aroma and tastes and a little smokey with roasted malts. Light bitter finish. Tasty piscator34 (2621) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 20, 2004
Typical black colour and off-white head. Roasted malt and hoppy aromas are present, perhaps with a bit of soya-sauce in the mix as well. The flavor is much more "roasted" than I was expecting, but there’s chocolate there too along with a combination of earthy hops and faint citrus finish. The flavor profile seems more "imperial" than "sweet", but either way it’s all good. mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2004
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. I’ve been waiting to try this for a while and I wasn’t 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. BennyTicklez (621) - USA - AUG 17, 2004
Hey NICE!!!! i’m the 500th rater of Shakespeare Stout. This stuff pour BLACK with a small tan head. Taste is coffee with a hint of chocolate. Good bitterness. I don’t know if I’ve had a stout so bitter. I like this stuff. Smooth. Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2004
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. ojready (2) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2004 does not count
Perfect beer! Dark, earthy stout with strong chocolate/coffee taste. Heavy aroma. 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.
