Rogue chocolate stout, the quintessential dessert beer. This is a 2 year old sample, which has a little surprisingly aged reallly well.
Perfect appearance. Almost black, great tan foam that sticks around forever and coats the glass. The smell is domineering chocolate. The taste...wow it's almost too chocolatey to be a beer. You could confuse it for some sort of chocolate liqueur until the roasted malt kicks in gently to balance the chocolate taste. There is also some molasses sweetness hiding underneath it all, which in my opinion really completes this brew. That's all I get here, but the interplay is done to perfection. The finish is mildly bitter and dry from the chocolate and the acidity of the malt. The mouthfeel is silky smooth and thick for a beer of this ABV - definitely is only hurt by the decadence of it all. This is amazing.
