Rogue Chocolate Stout was served from a 22 oz. silkscreened bottle. In a pint glass, the beer was black, and was topped by an ample brown head that eventually receeded, leaving pools of shimmering obsidian-like blackness. Rich aromas of cocoa-chocolate, cola, and creamy sasparilla wafted from the glass, integrated with a superb and intriguing roasty smoky earthiness. This stout delivered divine flavors...beginning with a dark chocolate-cola roasty maltiness that opened up with an excellent earthy cocoa bitterness and perfectly subtle non-descript esters. The finish was cocoa dry and cola-like with cherry esters, leaving lingering bitter chocolate notes. Yes I could tell there is some real chocolate in there. The body was richly full and smooth: perfect for the flavors and character of the beer. I was very impressed with the Chocolate Stout, enjoying it immensely, in contrast to the Shakespeare, which I think is a bit unrefined and out-of-wack with its esters. Being a lover of both stouts and super dark chocolate, I highly recommend this one to other like-minded individuals. Perhaps my favorite from Rogue.
