This in my mind is not really a stout, it is a IPA/stout hybrid. I love a hoppy beer when I order one but a stout should not taste like this, a stout is more about the malt not the hops, I would of probably loved it if I was not expecting a stout. Forgetting what this beer is supposed to be, it has good chocolate and coffee flavors, but the body is a little lacking, it is actually a pleasant drink. But i'd rather of had a actual stout.
Second tasting. After trying this a second time, I have changed my mind. Being from the UK I am used to a British style of stout, as that was what I was expecting I was disappointed. This time around I took a more open minded sip. This is actually a very tasty and balanced beer, i still find it some what a hybrid to my tastes but a real tasty one. I hope to try more from Rogue ales.
