A - Excellent 3 Finger head, light brown/caramel color. Dark opaque black appearance. This is what a stout should look like.
S - Rich Chocolate malt, slight caramel hint as well.
T - Wow. Just how it should be. sweet dark chocolate taste accompanied by subtle hop bitterness. this beer really stands out of the competition.
M - Creamy goodness. light carbonation makes it impressively smooth and coats the pallet well.
O - I have had better stouts. but as far as a chocolate stout, this is coming up first. the amount of chocolate used was perfect and allowed the beer stay true to what a stout is all about.
Bottle poured into pint glass.

Sampled on December 24, 2011. The pour is nice and dark to nearly black with a long lasting, foamy brown head. Loads of chocolate malts on the aroma with a slight hoppy character on the backside. But the chocolate is the more powerful aroma. The body was a lot thinne than I imagined and I found that to be a disappointment. The taste is full of chocolate with an obvious hopped bitterness toward the end that lingers on the palate. There are chocolate stouts that I like better than this one.

1 pint 6 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.
Appearance - Perfectly opaque black body. Light brown two-finger head with tons of retention and low stick.
Smell - Tons of chocolate. Dark roasted coffee bean. Sweet and bitter.
Taste - Each sip seems different from the last. Moderate to light hop bitterness throughout. Pretty hoppy for a stout. Coffee and chocolate. A bit metallic. Faint lactic creaminess in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Somewhat creamy texture that is dominated by a solvent finish.
Overall Drinkability - Amorphous on the palate. I started off liking it, then decided after several sips that it wasn't all that great after all. Few more sips and I thought it was brilliant. I haven't ever had this hard of a time coming up with an overall score for a beer. Definitely an interesting brew. Worth trying.

My Goodness! Rogue Chocolate Stout! Why haven't we been introduced sooner! I kept drinking the Mocha Porter and passing you up for some reason.
This is a Grand Slam! If only smelled as well as it tastes. This beer has something for everybody. Complex hop profile for beer snobs and wonderful chocolate for noobs. This is is prolly one of the best beers known to man at this date. A true Winter delight. Well I say Winter cause I go Stout and Porter crazy when the thermometer drops for some reason. I mean this ain't no Mikeller Beer Geek Breakfast. But I can cook my own eggs and I know how to brew coffee. This beer is gonna make me fat this Winter.
I'm heading out to buy every bottle the local shop has...
