Pours out perfect stouty black with an off-tan into my stein. The smell is mainly roasted malts and chocolate, which should be expected for a beer like this.

The flavour of the beer starts off strongly chocolatey, this is probably the most noticeably chocolatey beer that I've had to date. In addition to that there is a soft roasted characteristic and the faintest addition of hops, but enough to add flavour. There is also a certain creamy aspect. Really balanced all the way around though, even though the chocolate is the strongest flavour it is still far from overwhelming. The finish is a nice bitter bit. I like it. As the beer warmed the initial chocolate hit up front became more pronounced, but it still didn't overwhelm, and I think I actually liked it that way a bit more.

The mouth is a little thin for my tastes, but is average for a standard style stout. Drinkability is quite good.

Overall, a nice, high quality stout by Rogue.
