Poured into a good old fashioned MUG. Appearance is blacker than the eyes of the grim reaper, and the head is thick and rich and brown... awesome retention, but not much lacing.
The aroma is TOTALLY CHOCOLATE.
The flavor... holy lord. Delicious roasted malts, and elegant dark chocolate. Maybe even milk chocolate, a little bit! A hint of rich coffee is in there as well. The hop bitterness comes through more as it warms, and kinda hits the side of the tongue to give it a little bit of an acidic bite. Mouthfeel is creamy and slightly drying, but not too drying.
For drinkability... really you don't want to sit down and drink several mugs of this. This is a beer to have one glass of, or maybe two if you feel like keeping the bomber to yourself. This is what I'd prefer to have instead of dessert... or I suppose you could have this with dessert too.
As far as recommending this... come on, does Rogue even MAKE an unimpressive brew? This is one of my favorite stouts. Buy it NOW.
