Too bitter, not at all enjoyable. It seemed like they were going somewhere with this but it ends up being to bland for a sweet and too sour for a stout.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2005 Beautiful look to it, it pours thicker than Valvoline. It feels hearty and heavy in the mouth. Taste is also thick and juicy. But, for a "sweet stout," not incredibly great. Samuel Smiths Oatmeal Stout is smoother and easier to drink than this. Still drinkable and standard level for a stout, I was just expecting something different. Perhaps I will give it another chance. And Rogue’s chocolate stout blows this out of the water. Drink that instead.

strong and sweet chocolate aroma, very dark black hue with a large frothy brown head, well laced, flavour is of dark chocolate with hints of nuts and coffee, firm bodied with a lingering chocolate finish.

cascade aroma overwhelms all else. i guess i have to work hard to get used to cascade and then i might find some of the things that at the moment seem to be given the big heave-ho. pleasant burnt chocolate cake finish but by the end of the glass it seems as thought there is a little too much baking soda in this particular cake. some saltiness, just doesn't show anything particualrly ineresting

Dark, with a coffee coloured head. Aromas are earthy, sweet and sour. This has a good roast character with plain chocolate bitterness. Smooth and moreish. Not bad!

Dark beer alround, with a lightly hopped aroma and a bitter and slight chocolate flavour. A good dry stout to my taste buds.

More bitter than I expected of a sweet stout. Can taste those cascades. Reminds of storm king but with more chocolate aftertaste. The chocolate finish is a real winner.

Huge thick head. Slight hint of bittersweet chocolate throughout. Finishes slightly dry. Decent, but not a favorite.

This almost tastes like Rogues chocolate stout without the chocolate. In fact I'm sure that's what they did. Having said that it is a very good stout.

Black as ink with a beautiful brown head and good lacing. Rich and chewy with plenty of coffee flavor. Good balance with a hoppy finish. Another excellent beer from Rogue.
