Hmmm. I'd put this one as a dry stout. Certainly not in the same league as their chocolate stout, but very good. It has the body and smoothness of an oatmeal stout. Good boiling hops content.

Empties near pitch black. Tall brown head. The aroma is made up of hops, roasted malt, and faint chocolate. There's some stronger chcolate flavoring on the tongue along with light coffee, hops and sweetened malt. A lot like a reduced Rogue Chocolate Stout. Very smooth and very tasty beer. Recommended!

Smells of chocolate, and roasted malts. Very sweet nose. Color is opaque black, with a very nice dark cream foam head. Taste is smooth and thinner. No real bitterness from hops until the end, and its slight at that. Flavor is characterized mostly from its overall sweetness. It has a mildly chocolatey taste, more of a creamy feel.

Beautiful black beer with a creamy foamy tan head. Great lacing. Smells like bittersweet baking chocolate. Good deep flavor. A slight tinny flavor which takes away from the coffee/chocolate aftertaste but really a nice stout. Smooth. Really nice stuff.

BEAUTIFUL appearance! Thick and black with a large dark brown head. Nice lacing. Light will not permeate this beer. A bit sweet and floral scent, not what I expected for such a robust looking brew. MMMM... lots of orange in the taste, with a hint of chocolate. VERY nice! A little thin in the mouthfeel, but it works. Extremely drinkable- a bit filling for more than one though.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2005 I was lucky enough to get a 3L bottle of this for my b-day(signed by John nonetheless)and shared it with family on X-mas eve. As on other occasions, I thought it was just wonderful. Full bodied-almost approaching Imperial and with such a nice balance of malt and hops. Personally I like it without the added choc. flavor, but Im not much of a "flavored"beer lover.

This is the best American brewed stout that I have tried. Chocolate, mocha, and roasted flavors blend nicely in this one. Full bodied and very satisfying.

I liked this stout. Very roasty with a nice brown head. Chocolatety, with some bitterness. Enjoyable. Not like other Rogue beers. Very smooth beer.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2004 One fine looking pour, off that 22 oz bomber. Perfect carbonation produced an incredible brown head on top of total blackness. Nose was dominated by an American hop, with hints of chocolate and roast. Flavor was roasty and chocolatey, with the Bitterness there but kept a little in the background. Very smooth round body and full palate. This would really be like velvet in a few months of conditioning. Top notch.

Gunny (41) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2004 Opaque brown with a thick, offwhite head. The aroma is of dark roasted malt and bitter, dark chocolate accompanied by an underlying earthiness and the faint sting of hops on the nose. Initial rich, dark roasted coffee bitterness slowly rounds into subtle, sweet chocolate with floral undertones. Pleasantly silky mouthfeel and a lingering bittersweet aftertaste.
