Quite flavorul, malty with bitter burnt coffee, bitter chocolate, bitter oatmeal, bitter aftertaste that lingers long after the rest of the flavor has died. treadyroc (150) - St. Leonard, Maryland, USA - FEB 26, 2007
Roasted flavors permeate this dry-ish stout. Almost porter-like in flavor, & definitely flavorful. Opaque, black in color; with a deep tan head that quickly diminishes to rest atop the beverage until you polish it off entirely. Codythegreat (149) - Carrollton, Georgia, USA - JUN 10, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2007 I had this beer at a bar named Tap in Atlanta. The bartender offered me this drink when I asked her if she had any Bare Knuckle Stout and they didn’t. I’m glad that I was able to try this one because it had a good taste and a very dark colour with a dark brown head. The taste was smooth and very good. I drank this out of a shaker. joechristenson (149) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2010
On tap at the Happy Gnome, Saint Paul, MN. Dark chocolate brown and very opaque; tight tan head. Smells of dark, bitter chocolate but has a commanding presence of earthy/citrus hops. Earthy chocolate on the tongue, definitely creamy; there’s a mellow bitterness, too. Good balance but the hops are a bit too showy here for me. jtxx (149) - san antonio, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2005
It can be an everyday beer for me. Nice beautiful color with heavy lacing. Slight chocolate aftertaste. Great beer.

One of the hoppiest stouts i have had in a while. a chocolate and coffee undertone really makes u anticipate the next sip. Great brew. Good job rogue. frankR (149) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 20, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2004 Large brown head mostly diminishing while leaving good lacing. Nose is roasted chocolate malts with a hint of hops and yeast. Front is malty, roasted chocolate malts with a coffe body, sweet and pleasant. A tad bit of hops come through during the exprience and the finish is burnt and sweet. Palate may be a bit on the watery side which reveals some alcohol flavor, perharps the beers biggest weekness. Overall, very good! possumjc (149) - Charleston - Mt Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Malty aroma. Opaque color. Dark chocolate malt flavor with some charred bitterness. Bigsky66 (148) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Great appearance with black body a dark tan head becoming slightly lighter on top. Very foamy also. Chocolate cigar smell. Nice bitter-sweet taste. Can really tast the roasted barley in it. Nice smoke and bitter finish. Stays on the palate well. "Thickens my spit" Mike LeMieux. Does have a little citrus in it too. Great stout. gatorbeer (148) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Dark. Creamy. A little bitter. Not as charred as other Stouts. A bit on the mild side. A slight taste of dark chocolate.
