22 ounce bottle into Rogue pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly pitch black color with a nice 1-2 finger dense mocha colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some nice soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big chocolate, toffee, caramel, molasses, roasted malt, vanilla, cream, and light herbal hops. Very nice and well balanced aromas with good strength; very dessert-like. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, toast, oats, caramel, toffee, cream, light coffee, earth, and herbal hops. Fair amount of herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, toffee, toast, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance of sweetness and bitterness; with a good amount of chocolate flavor and roast. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a fairly creamy, silky, and lightly prickly mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden with pretty much no warming noticed on the finish. Overall this is a very nice chocolate stout. Good roasted and chocolate flavors, with good balance of sweetness; and very smooth to drink.

Pours dark and inviting with a big medium tan head. Really good lacing but the head retention is less than spectacular.
Smell is malt, chocolate and newspaper. I expected more complexity but the balance was good at least.
Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, hops and newspaper. Good balance.
Mostly full-bodied, light effervescence. Somewhat drying with a slightly watered-down finish. Just a hint of warming. I expected more but its still a good beer.

Appearance- Super dark brown with lots of tan head. The head dissipates but leaves some nice lacing.

Smell- Chocolate is dominant. Sort of a dark chocolate smell except there is a sweet scent that is hard to place.

Taste- Tons of chocolate and some dark roasted malts. There is a bit of bitterness at the end which makes me think of coffee but I don't think it actually is. A little alcohol creeps in at the end.

Mouthfeel- Creamy, silky, awesome.

Overall- A very nice chocolate stout. It's not something I'd want everyday but when I'm in the mood I wouldn't hesitate to get it again.
