I guess it is not a good idea drinking it after the Rogue Chocolate Stout - as the flavors are couldn"t be as intense as in the Choco Stout, but that's how it was served: Weak nose with candis and chocolate. Opaque with a little layer of a head. Espresso, nearly mocca and chocolate taste / but not as good.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - DEC 21, 2003
Nice stout appearance with a dark tan head. Dry, roasted malts with good chocolate/coffee notes. Wow, complex on that side with a decent hop bite to balance it out. A very solid offering. Not really a statement beer though; more restrained and a somewhat strange finish.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Wow! Poured black as night. Not much of a head, but enough to seal in the flavor. The second pour into my glass (big bottle) had more head which left a beautiful lace behind. The taste was amazing for a Stout. Not too bitter. Lots of body and *very* complex. Chocolate and coffee hints abound, as do the wonderful Cascade hops. This is one of the few Stouts I could drink anytime.

I love Rogue's beer and this has proven to be no exception...heavy roasted flavor...Very nicely put together

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2003
Black, with a big brown head. Roasty, acid nose, whiffs of licorice and chocolate. Quite bitter, with an underlying smokiness. Dry but with a nice smooth mouthfeel. Too bitter--odd hops for the style.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2003
This stout was very dark and thick looking with a moderate head and good lacing. Hoppy aroma with notes of fruit, pine and tobacco. Medium to full bodied, warm and sweet up front, a bit tangy, with coffee and chocolate flavors but between the roasted malt and all the hops it had an overriding bitterness that I found distracting-seemed unbalanced and a stretch in the style department.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - DEC 2, 2003
Opaque black with a large diminishing hazelnut head. I would be hard pressed to find a better looking beer. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roast and a bit of alcohol. Medium thick creamy palate with a decent amount of carbonation. Very nice flavor of roast, coffee, chocolate, anise, with hints of fruit and alcohol. Somewhat astringent. A very good stout.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2003
Ebony body and mocha head. Smells like flourless chocolate cake with a hint of vanilla and some alcohol. This puppy redeems Rogue for its hop assault in its other beers. Creamy roasted malt, chalky bittersweet cocoa powder, and a dusty/sticky finish. Yes.

Chocolate, vanilla extract, and molassas aroma. Pours dark with a great almond head. One of my favorite beers altogether. It never gets old drinking this beer! Smooth, creamy and what a sweet stout should be.

Well, I had a bottle before that obviously had problems that this one did not. Must say that this was quite nice (unlike other bottle that had very sharp, astringent qualities) This was a delight. Thick and pleasant with a nice bitterness to follow the malt richness.
