A - as black as a moonless night in BFE country. beige luxurious head that bubbles like a witches cauldron
S - Massive chocolate notes on the nose. Roasty barley, citrus hops in the background.
T - Wow, is this exceptional. This chocolate stout nails it on the head for me. Its so chocolaty but in a totally natural and not-cloying way. Its also got a nice roasted malt component but not so much to where it begins to make the brew harsh. It simply complements the general theme adding a bittersweet note. this is like mainlining pure dark chocolate but in a way that's pleasurable and not overthetop sweet. Rather dry and a hop bitterness is featured surprisingly strongly thoughout the mid and backend - but very refined and nicely (think orange zest mixed with the finest quality cocoa). Superb. Makes my heart giddy.
M - awesome texture - relatively full bodied with the right amount of booze and everything else to make this texturally phenomenal as well as delicious on taste. the tastes become richer and more intriguing with every additional sip you take.
D - awesome. I really could drink this and not be overwhelmed at all.
Overall, a solid brew and my favorite stout (and beer)from rogues

Poured from a 650 mL bottle into a small plastic cup (unfortunately all that I had at the time).
1.5 finger head over a solid black-brown body. Head settled to a thin layer that stayed around a while. Lacing on the side of the glass.
Chocolatey scent over the head, as advertised. Not much else.
Taste: Bittersweet dark chocolate. More on the bitter side than the sweet side. Not too bad. The bottle label says 69 IBU.
Moderately strong carbonation.
Overall, perhaps a little too tart for my tastes, but it's not so extreme that I don't want to finish it.
