This Oregon made stout is the wow of stout beers. I don't know if this is my favorite stout stout, but damn...it knocks me out. This is a contender for first prize of stouts with especially another Oregon stout - Obsidian!
Let's get to the review. Appearance? Black black like purple black with a creamy tan head that won't quit. 5.0.
The aroma of chocolate fills your senses so much that I had to give it a 5.0 too just for its sheer strength.
The taste is a strong stout melded with chocolate. Lotsa chocolate. The chocolate shows up on the first taste. Stronger chocolate flavor than even Young's Double chocolate. I don't know if this is my favorite stout. I don't know if I want this much chocolate, but I rated it at a 4.5 just to give it the proper props that are due to the tremendous effort by the makers of this beer. Hoo-wah.
Complement this beer with a silent watching of Foxxy Brown movie while listening to Grace Jones singing La Vie en Rose and more of her techno punky miracles.

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.
