Rogue Chocolate Stout

Quick review - dark and heavy stout with all the flavor, body, and uniquness you could ask for.

Color - in the light of the bar, this stuff is dark as the night. I have a feeling it's still a dark, dark brown in the light of day. I re-poured it to get a glimpse of the head. ALL of the head. Light brown, leaving more lace than clean glass on the walls of my pint glass as the head dissipated to about 1/4".

Smell - a roastedness that makes me think of faded coffee with some fruit behind it (wtf?). I am expecting chocolate, but what I smell isn't the chocolate I'm expecting. Maybe I'm thinking like hot chocolate/milk chocolate.

Taste - like nothing else. It's like a rather dry coffee with added cocoa powder and something with a bitter finish that complements the chocolate perfectly, but is likely the hops. I can't taste fruit discernably, but the smoke here has clogged my nose a bit. If I take a sip with some air, I get a bit of fruit with it: maybe cherry. Cherry would be fitting.

Mouthfeel - this beer is surprisingly light in the mouth. I'd call it a medium thick at best, but I'd expect molten chocolate by the looks. A swish in the mouth lightens it up a lot, not sure if it's th CO2 or the alcohol.

Sessionable? Maybe if you're sasquatch.
