I had this right after I drank a Rouge Double Chocolate Stout from the tap. The Rouge off the tap definitely tastes better. For me a beer on tap will always be better than the beer in the bottle if they are similar.

A - Looks delicious. Deep dark brown with a tan-colored head that laces around the rim as you drink the beer down.
S - Coffee and chocolate are obvious. More coffee than chocolate.
T - Coffee/Espresso and malty taste. Not much chocolate or oatmeal. If you want chocolate, drink a Rogue Double Chocolate. Something bitter comes up at the end.
M - Fairly nice mouthfeel. Light carbonation. Silky and smooth.
O - This is a good beer, I really want to love it, but something is lacking. Maybe I need a fresh bottle, or maybe I need it on tap. It is good, but not better than Rogue Double Chocolate.

I will re-assess in the near future.

Had another bottle I opened at room temperature. This is much better. Scores readjusted. Great beer

Great colour and finish. Coffee is not overwhelming. Smell is vey soft of coffee. The taste going down is very smooth with no overwhelming a finish of coffee. Not much head and the colour is a nice dark brown. Get some if you can. You will know why it is hard to get ahold of.
