Bomber poured into a pint glass.
Looks pitch black in the glass, but is actually dark brown with an enormous cocoa colored head. Relatively thick layers of foam stick to the sides of the glass.
Smells of chocolate of the richest variety. If you close your eyes with your nose in the glass, you might imagine yourself in a chocolate factory. The sweet chocolate notes play off of coffee to an appetizing effect.
Let's see how it tastes... not surprisingly, the chocolate flavor is huge and delicious, but it still doesn't completely dominate. Caramel and coffee make notable contributions as well. There is also crisp, bitterness for balance... maybe some floral hops flavors in there somewhere? This brew is medium-bodied and creamy.
Rogue's Chocolate Stout is easy to love and would be a good intro beer or intro stout for an inexperienced palate. I would never decline one of these.
