look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
Appearance: Jet black with a quickly disappearing espresso-tan head. Less than impressive lacing. A little underwhelmed by the appearance actually, but it wasn't bad.
Aroma: very earthy with some roastiness and cocoa. some sweet malty aromas pull through as well. quite nice really.
Taste: Cocoa, rich chocolate truffle, and roasted coffee bean. I think I enjoy this one more than I do the Shakespeare. It's got just a really nice layered flavor. And the chocolate is not really sweet as it is rich in its presence. Man I like this. A great stout with a twist.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy with moderate-high carbonation. A bit too much carbonation if you ask me, but this is still a killer stout. Mmmmm tasty.
Drinkability: Goes down very easily. A whole bomber of this stuff after dinner was a real treat.
Notes: Well this is probably one of my favorite stouts to date, although Shakespeare is right up there. Rogue does a really nice job with their stouts. They impressed me more than Old Rasputin or Samuel Smith's even, and those are imperials. Well done, Rogue.
