Pours a deep, beautiful, ink black with a rather active espresso colored head. Maximal lacing and good retention. Smells overtly of chocolate and coffee. This is shaping up nicely. Taste wise it is a home run. Huge waves of coffee, slightly burnt, and chocolate malt enbalm your mouth. This stuff is desert and that's just how I'm having it. Finshes slightly dry with a nice sweetly astringent quality to it. Mouthfeel is rather big but quite enjoyable. God help me if I ever find this on tap.

Pours dark brown with a tan head that disappates quickly. Strong aroma of chocolate, but with additinal notes of roasted coffee and licorice. Tatse of chocolate and hops which really shine through at the finish. Fairly well balanced. The chocolate malts are the highlight here, but the finish is bitter and lasting. One of Rogue's best beers.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. At £7 something per bottle here in N Ireland, I won't be buying too many of these but had to try it out... A fair bit of body with this stout, frothy tan head with excellent lacing on the pint glass. Smells of bittersweet chocolate, bitter coffe, pepper, roasty walnuts evident. I get alot of the walnut taste with this, a little chocolate, very earthy and its getting more earthy / roasty as this pint glass ends. Aftertaste is fairly bitter and nutty. I expected this a bit sweeter but a fine beer to relax with and watch a movie. At 650ml per bottle, when you have finished your pint you have a few more litres to look forward to!! Very pleasent.

22 oz. bottle pours black with a very thick, fluffy, brown head.

Aroma is of sweet chocolate roasty, toasty malt.

Taste is very chocolatey, malty, caramel, toffee, and slight licorice taste.

Mouthfeel is robust, full bodied and carbonated.

Very sweet, chocolatey and drinkable.

Best looking beer I've ever seen. Pitch black with a big time brown cloudy head.

Smells great; roasty notes of chocolate fill the olfactories, some licorice in the background as well as smoke.

Taste is a cross between chocolate and coffee.

Exceptional head retention. Feeling on the palate is complex. It's sweet, it's bitter, it's smooth.

Goes down easy with only moderate alcohol, very drinkable.

Picked up a bomber from the Blue Max in Burnsville, MN.

Pitch black body, darkest American stout I've ever seen, look like a double or imperial stout. Tan/brown head with some lacing and a little head retention.

Smells like dark chocolate. Fairly strong aroma, but very complex tho. Tastes like dark chocolate too, and again, lacks complexity. No roasted malt flavors to be found. At 69 IBUs this beer is surprisingly balanced however.

Interesting mouthfeel, a bit heavy, but very smooth drinking. Big flavors, but not overwhelming. Easily the best Rogue brew I've had thusfar and best chocolate stout.

Pours black with a tan head which dissipates rather quickly. The nose is chocolate mostly with faint auromas of roasted malt and oat. Taste is a very smooth drinking delicious stout, some bitterness upfront then the expected chocolate in the middle followed by a somewhat dry finish. Creamy and heavy mouthfeel. Easy on the palatte and certainly drinkable.

Awesome brew. Pours a very deep brown with a medium to dark tan head. Lacing leaves a bit to be desired. Smell is intense chocolate. Not like the typical dark and bittersweet chocolate. Those are there, but the star is big milk chocolate, sweet and rich.

Taste is also big time milk chocolate. Deliciously sweet, not over the top or cloying at all. There's also a bit of coffee to offset the sweetness a bit. No noticeable hops, completely hidden 69 ibu. Nice medium creamy mouthfeel. Touch of carbonation. This is delicious.

Serving type: on-tap
