Pours a dark brown, nearly black. The bottle calls it an 'ebony'. For a chocolate stout I find it as dark as it should be.

Smells like chocolate, chocolate, and dark chocolate.

Taste is not quite as chocolate but still there is chocolate. Hops and some malts. 90% chocolate, 9% hops, and the 1% rest. A nice overall pleasing taste, tastes much like Deschutes Brewery Obsidian Stout.

Solid mouthfeel; perhaps just a tiny bit over carbonated but it must suffice and the mouthfeel is still great.

Nearly to easy to drink. Could easily finish off two bombers in an hour. This is a nice strong brew.

An oversight, me never getting around to reviewing this beer. It pours a jet-black color with a big, smooth, and creamy head of foam. Nose is excellent, full of notes of dark, semibitter chocolate, lightly roasted, rich and appetizing... this is how my ideal hot chocolate smells on a cold wintry night. Taste is superbly chocolatey, though bordering on the too-sweet, balanced by moderately low hoppiness and a medium malt roast. Bittersweet finish.

Appearance: Dark as the night with a small (1/2 inch) frothy head. Lacing clings to the rim and stays.

Smell: Bold & sweet. Licorice and toffee notes seem to pour out.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Slight sweetness hits you at first, then a ground coffee smack, mellows down into a chocolate mix and finishes with a chalky sweetness of what seems to be chocolate syrup.

Drinkability: The first thing I thought was, "This would be great as a beer float!". And, I still believe that to be true, however, as a stand alone beer, this one is one of the better chocolate stouts. Not sure if I would have drank the whole bomber by myself...but if i had that ice cream...watch out! Another good one from the peeps at Rogue Ales Brewery.

Opaque and black, with a thin, but persistant head. Aroma of chocolate and spicy hops. Flavor began with bitter chocolate, became very slightly sweet and fruity, and finished with some underlying earthy hop flavors. Full bodied with low to medium carbonation... smooth and very drinkable. An very good flavored stout.

T - The roasted malt comes out more in the taste with along with the chocolate goodness

M - This is a creamy smooth beer but the carbonation is a little more than I like in a stout

D - This is a very good beer looks everything about it is very good its very easy to drink it would be a very good dessert beer worth trying sometime

Pours a cocoa colored brown with thin white head. Aroma dominated by chcolate malts roasted coffee and tostie rolls. Flavor once again dominated by chocolate and chocolate malts. Nice roasted character and hops provide a tasty bitter dry finish. Very Good!

Poured the bomber bottle into my mug and received a one-finger frothy head that slowly died, leaving small lacings. This sat on what was essentially a black body that you could barely see through when held up to the light. Not to be redundant, but the smell is chocolatey. I mean, there are hints of other malts in there and hops, but putting my nose in my glass was akin to unwrapping a chocolate bar and smelling it. Not only does the beer have a very pronounced chocolate taste, but it has a dryer feel to it, as if there were coffee and/or roasted malts in it. A smooth beer overall with some hop catching you on the backbite. I detected mild fruit flavors, but that could be my imagination. I just wish Rogue would sell this in six-pack form rather than just the bomber bottle.
