Pours a nice dark brown black with a great tannish head. First sniff and I'm in heaven. Pure chocolate. Expecting a sweetness due to the aroma but this beer is not sweet at all. Lots of body and flavor and goes down well. A very impressive beer. Can't wait to try the double chocolate.

Sampling right now on 4/28/14. Comes in a single 22 ounce (650ml) bottle with a embossed label. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a english pint glass.

Pours a pitch-black in color with a 3-finger tan head that dissipates fairly quickly that leaves lots of lacing. You can smell the 'imported chocolate' right off the bat with some malts & hops. The taste is to be expected. Lots of chocolate and roasted malts! Just a slight bitter aftertaste, which is from the various hops. The "9 ingredients: 2-Row, C-120 & Chocolate Malts, Cascade Hops, Rolled Oats, Roasted Barley, Chocolate, Free Range Coastal Water and Pacman Yeast" is written on the right side of the bottle. If you like chocolate stouts that is loaded with taste, then this is for you. First 'Rogue 'that I have had and they make several different types. Overall a enjoyable brew. I would of rated it higher if not for the slight bitter aftertaste that lingers.

22 oz bottle was poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance: A two finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Super sweet powdery milk chocolate, roasted, bready malts, and a little earthiness.

Taste: Definitely like the aroma. Chocolate up front with some chewy malts, roastiness, bitterness, earth, and a char.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, somewhat light to medium bodied, low to medium carbonation, a little chewy, and a little bitterness in the rear.

Overall: Pretty solid American Stout. Now I why it has been rated the most for this style.
