A- Poured into a super tall glass, it's ultra black and very thick. It does produce a super large head that keeps building and building, I thought it was going to over flow there for a minute, tons of lacing. Beautiful looking beer.
S- I smell bitter hops and bitter coffee with a small trace of dark rich chocolate on the finish, very roasty, almost smells burnt.
T- POW... there it is, perfection! You'll get alot of hops but it's complimented very well with a bitter heavy roast super dark chocolate, it does finish a bit dry. I've never tasted a chocolate stout filled with so much roast character, Rogue was not afraid of brewing a kick you in the face chocolate stout. Most other chocolate stouts I've tasted are smooth, subtle, and sweet. This stout slaps you on the side of the head and waves hi. :P Amazing.
M- Creamy, thick, ultra rich, and very pleasant.
D- High on the drinkability scale for the purposes of enjoying a delicious dessert beer, would I pound this watching a football game? Probably not. I would like to note I purchased this bomber for $4.99, so it's a great price for an amazing stout. When "I" drink this I want to savor the ingredients and pair it with an aged Torano Exodus cigar or perhaps even a Partagas Black.
