Deep black color with a thick caramel head with good retention.
Aroma of milky chocolate and cocoa powder, it becomes quite interesting and stronger once it warms up.
In its taste, there is a bold chocolate flavor that shows upfront and with a good deal of hops to balance it. Also malty, yeasty and condimented. Dry and bitter aftertaste with its lingering taste.
Full body with good carbonation. A bit oily.
You really don’t fell the 69 IBUs. Great stout and well balanced, not overly complex, focusing on what is promising: chocolate. A must for chocolate lovers.

This beer is black. It is topped with a medium sized dark brown head. It dwindles to an edging within a minute. Smells like dry cocoa powder, coffee and milk chocolate. Right up front, I get the Nestle Quick like chocolate flavor on the palette. There are other flavors at work as well. Burnt tones, bitter hops, roasted barley and oat. Body is full. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. A flavorful beer to be sure. The chocolate actually isn't as overbearing as I thought at first.

Gotta give props to ZAP, Budgood1 and Road Warrior for the combined effort to bring this beer to my presence.

Came in a tulip.

This beer did not show much head, but what little it did was a mocha brown, little lacing. The smell is all chocolate, sweet chocolate, not bitter. This literally tastes like a glass of chocolate milk, but way better. Minimal hop bitterness, sweet chocolate and some toffee malt. Mouthfeel is super creamy, almost no noticeable carbonation. This beer is very easy to drink and delicious. My favourite Rogue offering by far.

Had this on 2010-01-29 at their Portland Brew Pub

A - Dark, dark, dark brown with a generous brown head.

S - Dark roasted malt, chocolate, dried fruit

T - Amazing. I've had it in the bottle but fresh on tap is over the top. Dark chocolate, oats, blackberry, nutty, coffee, a dash of sweetness and a dash of bitterness perfectly balanced.

M - Lucious, rich, creamy with a medium body.

D - I had one after my meal for desert. Mind you it's not overly sweet but the richness of flavors sated my desert desires. It tasted so good, I went back the next day at lunch specifically to have another.
