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.

I bought a 650 ML bottle of Rogue Chocolate Stout at a grocery store. Poured in to a pint tumbler.

Pours an ebony black color and is opaque, with a frothy camel hair brown head. The head is quite resilient and leaves a lot of brown bubbly lace on the glass. Almost like a brownish marshmallow residue from hto chocolate.

The smell is fairly faint, not as strong as I expected anyway, and has chocolate and dairy aromas.

The taste is predictably chocolate (natural chocolate flavoring added). There is also a mellow malt flavor in the background, and then a mildly bitter finish. The flavors are well mingled and balanced. It tastes a little bit like instant hot chocolate (Swiss Miss).

Mouth feel is smooth and full bodied. Not as thick as I thought it might be.

This is a drinkable brew, but certainly not an everyday sort of thing. It would be good in the winter, maybe for a holiday gathering. I'd have it again. I'll look for it around the holidays.

A: Pitch black with a one-finger creamy tan head.

S: The smell hit me as soon as I popped the cap. Aromas of baking chocolate and honey.

T: The flavor is dominated by a strong chocolate flavor up front and finishes with an earthy espresso taste. Quite complex and interesting.

M: This one feels a little on the light side for a stout and is a little too carbonated for my liking.

D: Goes down smooth, tastes great, easy on the bankroll. Get some.

A - Pours a rich, very dark brown, with a moderate sepia head and lacing.

S - Smell is of chocolate syrup, roasted espresso, caramel, and brownies. It's basically desert in a glass on the nose!

T - Taste is of bready malts with bakers chocolate/chocolate syrup, caramel, and honey notes, blended splendidly with just enough roasted coffee bitterness to keep things well balanced.

M - Mouthfeel is on the higher side of medium. Carbonation is mild, and the beer is slick and smooth. Maybe just slightly thinner than average for the style, but if anything, it works to the beer's advantage here.

O - Overall, this is one delicious stout, and one I can definitely see myself coming back to during the upcoming fall and winter months. Well done Rogue!
