4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
From 22 oz bottle. Poured VERY dark, almost opaque. Very nice aroma and hints of musty chocolate. Great lasting flavor, but a little thinner that I would have expected from such a dark pour - thought it would be more of a mouthful. Still, a very acceptable beer from Rogue’s stable of fine brews.
12floz bottle, no freshness date, $2.75 as a single, pint glass. Appears near black with small layer of thin head. Good roasted aroma that has notes of toffee. Black coffee, and dark chocolate flavors are carried boldly over a medium body. A nice American stout, somewhat hampered in total score by appearance and a standard textural feel. It's been some time since I had this beer by Rogue. ironcontra (363) - POLAND - AUG 27, 2017

Brutally nice cocoa, oats, roasted malt, earth and milk chocolate aroma. Complex like some lighter Imperial Stout. Pitch black, clear, medium sized brown head. Taste is somewhat weaker than the aroma. Touch of sourness, lots of cocoa, some raw coffee. Thin body, lively carbonation, creamy texture. meatmanmd (161) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 21, 2017

From tap at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
Aroma of banana with oat, yoghurt, milk, cream, caramel, light coffee.
Pours dark brown with a beige small head, lacing.
Taste is creamy, a bit vinous but turns into sugary milk with caramel rather quick
Metallic aftertaste with a light bitter finish. hockey9930 (303) - - AUG 14, 2017
