On-tap at CW's Tap Room in Columbia, SC.
Appearance: Rogue Chocolate stout is a deep, opaque brown (nearly black) beer with a fine bubbly head that's the color of brown sugar. But really, who drinks this for the looks?
Smell: Pure cocoa. Barely anything else makes it out of the glass. A few malt scents escape, but this is just an intensely sweet, chocolate smelling beer.
Taste: Chocolate. Chocolate chocolate chocolate. What, you need more detail? Alright. Rich, thick, perfectly bittersweet cocoa. Dark chocolate in a glass. You won't notice anything else for the first few sips (or half pint). Just amazing chocolate flavors that coat the mouth.
Mouthfeel: Mildly warming, thick, heavy cocoa aftertaste. Slightly dry, just like you've eaten a bar of dark bittersweet chocolate.
Drinkable? Well, not for me. It's incredibly filling. I have no idea how many calories are in a pint of this but I'm not sure I want to.
This is an admittedly odd beer, and if you're not crazy about chocolate, it might be something to try once for the experience.
However, if you, like me, relish a good dark bar of chocolate (Lindt's 70% for example...) then watch out. This beer will be the death of both your waistline and your wallet. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Serving type: on-tap
