Great! Nice chocolate, malt, and coffee aromas here. Tastes of chocolate are more present than coffee though. Nice black body with a copper head. Full and smooth in the mouth. Very tasty indeed. Seems like Rogue can't go wrong.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Pours a beautiful deep black with a a thick light brown head. Roasted malt, mocha and Pacific NW hops in the nose. Overall, this stout is very bold and flavorful. Has notes of dark chocolate/coffee, caramel and cascade hops/slight grapefruit. Pleasantly sweet. Plenty of bitterness provided by ample hops and roasty bitterness - leaves a slightly burnt aftertaste. Some roasty acidity too. Lacing hangs on the glass in thick sheets, great head retention. I overlook this one because its widely available, I forget how good it is.

This beer pours out a big black w/a towering brown head that took a little swim over the edge(awesome)nice brown spready lace.Aromas of heavily roasted malt/coffee,chocolate,and a dump load of fine cascade hops(which lends a slightly metalic quality at times).The taste of this stout is every thing I look for in a heavily hopped stout.A big full beer with a gentle creamy mouth.Damn this has got to be my favorite Rogue stout.Long lingering hops and roastiness.If you like beer for dinner this would be a fine choice.

This brew is somethin good. A dark brown head with a black body give me something to look forward to. The look gives off the idea that this is a think beer, however it ends up being a little thiner than you may expect. All in all a beer I'd go out and get again for sure!

The first whiff smells like a mixture of dark roasted coffee, burnt toast, and a smoking grill. As I get further down, more complexities like chocolate and grapefruit emerge. Towards the end the hops start asserting themselves more. The appearance is completely opaque black with a dark brown thick head that rapidly rises as the beer is poured. The head leaves brown lacing going down. The taste is that of dark roasted caramel malts, balanced nicely by bitter hops. I just wish it was a tad bit more more hoppy. Nice mothfeel. A bit thin for a stout but very tasty.

Burnt coffee, chocolate aroma. Creamy, sweet, chocolate at first. Roasted coffee, with a well blended slightly bitter aftertaste. This beer is excellent.

Jet black with a dark chocolate head. Head retention is nice . aroma is of roasted malt, chocolate, and a little acohol is detected. the taste is a near perfect balance of roast chocolate malt and hoppy bitterness. The finish has a little crispness to it. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. The alcohol warms nicely. Drinkability is enhanced by the overall smoothness and balance. My new favorite stout.
