A: Poured from a 22 into a pint. I like the Rogue bottles, kind of a rotoscope approach. Unique styling. As far as the beer itself, stouts are harder to review in this department. What can I say, its pitch black. A light brown head that forms and dies within a few minutes. Pitch black.
S: Wow. This is definitely a chocolate stout! Not just chocolate hints, this one smells just like a fresh chocolate candy bar. A syrupy cocoa. There were definitely some heavy adjuncts used here, but thats not exactly a secret, and it'd be impossible to get this level of chocolate out of pure malt anyway. Very, very nice. Now I know what chocolate really smells like. I would give it a 6 if I could.
T: Nice and sweet. Rich and creamy with a dark milk-chocolate flavor and subtle hints of deep roasted espresso. Some cream, wheat, and delicate mint.
M: Excellent. Full body without being totally syrupy; a delicate mix of water, sweetness, and carbonation.
D: This is an extremely drinkable stout. Ive always liked Youngs Double-Chocolate, but this one blows it out of the water. This is how a chocolate stout should taste. Simple, chocolate, and an appropriate, modest, stout mouthfeel. This beer is really a delight.
