Pours thick black with a chocolate brown head. Even when held right up to a lamp no light is coming through this bad boy.

Smells like chocolate! Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! No suprise here. Just a hint of roasted malt.

Taste starts off with a tiny burnt/roasted malt bitter bite followed by a very silky chocolate taste. Almost like a hot coco powder but more towards the dark chocolate side. Not overly sweet or heavy. The best part is that it tastes like real chocolate unlike some beers that have the chocolate name in their label.

The mouthfeel is very smooth and milk like with just a hint of carbonation. Suprisingly light as it sits in your belly which is great because I could sip this all night long.

As far as chocolate beers go, this is the best I have had. Makes an excellent dessert by itself but I am sure it would go excellent with a slice of chocolate cake (perhaps it would even make a good cake!). Go out and find one if you haven't because this is what a chocolate beer should be!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22 ounce bomber poured into a snifter

A - pours up jet black with a foamy two inch head that is a rich mocha color. Retention is pretty good and lacing is outstanding.

S - the aroma of chocolate, sweet and beautiful to the nose.

T - Definite caramel malt notes with some toffee and licorice thrown in, big chocolate flavor and a coffee roasted nut finish.

M - thick and chewy with a bit of a lingering aftertaste

O - I didn't expect much as Rogue produces mostly okay but unspectacular offerings. I thought this one was the bomb diggety. Loved it.
