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

Poured into a standard pint...

A: Dark black in color, produces a creamy two finger light brown head. Leaves patchy lacing and retains very well.

S: Milk chocoalte, roasty malts, slightest coffee smell but predominantly sugary chocoalte. Smell is more pronounced as the beer warms.

T: Bittersweet bakers chocolate, roasted malts, hop bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with good carbonation. Extremly smooth and creamy.
.
O: Wonderful tasting beer. Drinks more like a desert. A bit filling but very, very tasty. Definitely reccommended if you like your stouts

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Dogfish Head Signature glass.

A: Super dark brown beer. Aggressive pour leads to a full 2-finger fluffy espresso colored head that fades to a ring in about 5 minutes. Lacing seems thick and plenty.

S: Lots of chocolate. Not as much sweet-chocolate as Choklat but a lot of nice, bitter, good dark chocolate and nice cocoa flavors shine through. Roasted malts are well represented here as well.

T: Chocolate backs down a bit as the roasted malts step up their game. Definitely can pick up the different malts used as I breathe back out after the swallow. Very nice tasting beer. Cocoa makes its presence known in dark bitter cocoa flavor as well as lending bitterness.

M: Very nice creamy feel. Big bodied American Stout. A touch overcarbonated for my liking but not terribly so.

O: This is a solid chocolate stout. This happens to also be my first offering from Rogue. I'm not sure why I've not tried anything from them until now but that's how it goes. At $4.99, this is a good buy.
