look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

Served in a snifter, poured from a bomber.

Appearance – Dark brown, almost black. Faint amounts of light penetrated only the very edges. Poured straight into the middle of the snifter. Thick tan head formed quickly and faded slowly to just the edges. Very minimal lacing.

Smell – Big hints of chocolate, slight roasted malt and very minute hop aroma. It almost smells like toll house chocolate chips.

Taste – Nice roasty flavor up front. Big chocolate notes in the middle and finish. The roasted malt blends perfectly with the chocolate. Slight residual sweetness, but overall it is reminiscent of semi-sweet chocolate. At the very end a slight toffee flavor finishes the sip off.

Mouthfeel – Creamy. Lends a nice character to the beer, almost like drinking dark chocolate milk... But better.

Overall –An almost perfect example. Perfectly balanced. A little more head retention would make it perfect. Rouge has done yet to make a beer that I can't appreciate. It's apparent to me as a home brewer that they spend a lot of time on recipe formulation before releasing a beer. This is my second time having this beer and my tasting notes are almost identical (glassware was different).

Serving type: 22 oz bottle
