Poured from a 22 oz bottle, this is a black beer! Thick, solid, tan head leaves some lacing on the glass. This beer is opaque; I held it right up to a light bulb and no light comes through whatsoever.

Smells like cocoa, dark roasted coffee, caramel.

Taste is immediately dark bittersweet chocolate, like natural unsweetened cocoa, then malty, roasted coffee. Nicely balanced with a hop finish.

Mouthfeel is smooth, not to heavy, light to medium carbonation. Surprisingly light-bodied for such a dark beer.

This is a surprisingly drinkable beer for it's color! Taste is hearty without being too heavy. I could definitely sip on more than one of these in one night. Another great brew from Rogue.

Deep black color with a thick caramel head with good retention.
Aroma of milky chocolate and cocoa powder, it becomes quite interesting and stronger once it warms up.
In its taste, there is a bold chocolate flavor that shows upfront and with a good deal of hops to balance it. Also malty, yeasty and condimented. Dry and bitter aftertaste with its lingering taste.
Full body with good carbonation. A bit oily.
You really don’t fell the 69 IBUs. Great stout and well balanced, not overly complex, focusing on what is promising: chocolate. A must for chocolate lovers.

This beer is black. It is topped with a medium sized dark brown head. It dwindles to an edging within a minute. Smells like dry cocoa powder, coffee and milk chocolate. Right up front, I get the Nestle Quick like chocolate flavor on the palette. There are other flavors at work as well. Burnt tones, bitter hops, roasted barley and oat. Body is full. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. A flavorful beer to be sure. The chocolate actually isn't as overbearing as I thought at first.

Gotta give props to ZAP, Budgood1 and Road Warrior for the combined effort to bring this beer to my presence.
