Sampling right now on 4/28/14. Comes in a single 22 ounce (650ml) bottle with a embossed label. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a english pint glass.
Pours a pitch-black in color with a 3-finger tan head that dissipates fairly quickly that leaves lots of lacing. You can smell the 'imported chocolate' right off the bat with some malts & hops. The taste is to be expected. Lots of chocolate and roasted malts! Just a slight bitter aftertaste, which is from the various hops. The "9 ingredients: 2-Row, C-120 & Chocolate Malts, Cascade Hops, Rolled Oats, Roasted Barley, Chocolate, Free Range Coastal Water and Pacman Yeast" is written on the right side of the bottle. If you like chocolate stouts that is loaded with taste, then this is for you. First 'Rogue 'that I have had and they make several different types. Overall a enjoyable brew. I would of rated it higher if not for the slight bitter aftertaste that lingers.

Very dark brown, opaque. At the very edge of the glass a slight brown/ruby color can be seen. Soft, creamy looking head that dissipates nearly entirely, but clings to the edge of the glass. Left little to no lacing on my glass.
Thick, and heavy with the smell of chocolate. Not a coco smell, but the smell of chocolate syrup. No hop aroma at all.
Light, roasted barley with a slight crispness. Flavor is clean and free of esters. The chocolate flavor is not as overwhelming as the aroma would suggest. Carbonation is on the smoother side, pleasant, and not too abrasive. Has a smooth, creamy finish, and the roasted chocolaty flavors finish well with a pleasant slightly bitter aftertaste. Could have slightly more body in the flavor and mouthfeel, and perhaps just a hint of acidity or sourness to balance the bittersweet chocolate flavor.
Overall Style 4.375/5
