A: Very dark brown color with a tan, extremely creamy-looking head that starts about 1.5-2.0" thick and sticks around awhile.

S: Light odor of coffee with hints of alcohol, but overwhelmingly like powdered cocoa (in a good way).

T: So, so smooth. It drinks like Luvel chocolate milk, except not sugary and with a most welcome flavor of hops and a slight coffee intro. Delicious bittersweet finish.

M: Excellent. As I said before, it's akin to drinking bittersweet, beer-flavored chocolate milk.

D: Very high drinkability. Could easily enjoy this all night long.

I appreciate stouts ranging from the kick-in-the-nuts of a RIS like Old Rasputin to the creamy drinkability of Guinness draft. This offering from Rogue is just about a perfect combination of complexity of taste and repeat-drinkability. Will definitely order again...and again.

Serving type 22oz brown bottle. This beer simply put is amazing . Pours a deep chocolate color with a ruby lining. A small tan head that disappears pretty quickly. Smells of roasted malts and dark chocolate. A bit of hop bitterness in the front, but by the finish you would swear you are drinking a chocolate shake just not quite as thick. One of the best chocolate beers Ive ever had.

One of the best beers period, in my opinion. A must try for any stout lover. It is pretty much true to its name, but I'll describe my thoughts of the brew anyway: This one pours thick, and is a black hole of a brew. A nice thin, light brown head caps it off. Smell is chocolate and roasty, and...oh yeah, chocolate. Taste is exceptional.....very chocolaty, perhaps slight hints of coffee...but mainly chocolate, and more chocolate! A thick and smooth mouthfeel, easy on the palate. This one is a little thick to drink too many, but that's a good thing in my book. Nonetheless, I usually limit myself to one of these at a 'sitting'..........a delicious brew.

Magnificent. Simply fantastic. Pours a nice dark chocolate brownish-black with a small, dark tan head. The nose hints at the forthcoming chocolate. The taste is tremendous. If you like chocolate, Southern Tier's Imperial Choklat is the only thing I've had in the neighborhood. In terms of mouthfeel, it was pleasantly bubbly without turning into champagne. As for drinkability, I had to fight off friends to whom I offered a taste. I will buy this each time I see it.

This beer poured very dark with a light head. The smell of the beer was of a chocolate bar!! The flavor of this beer is amazing Rogue certainly hit the spot for this one! No skimping of ingridients on this beer! It is certainly not something you can drink all night but it certainly has great flavor and is a beer I will suggest to all my beer loving friends.

What a decadent beer……

In a category best served as an after dinner (or breakfast beer) stout, this is a culinary homerun. I could just as easily drink this at 9:30am Sunday morning, preparing for a Seahawk game, as I could puffing a nice Partagas Habano, after a sensational dinner with friends.

True to the American stout style, we have a deep, dark chocolate hue that gives way to a spice less (no cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, etc) oatmeal cookie/hot chocolate nose. A fairly quickly dissipating espresso head topped off this brew, adding to it’s decadent appearance. The flavor isn’t to far from that. Mild mocha latte, sweet roasted malt, with minimal hoppy presence, lend this beer to it’s wonderful lingering aftertaste of dark chocolate oatmeal ( whatever that is). This beer was fairly heavy, as a good craft stout should be…velvety and rich, but not overbearing with it’s mouth feel, lending itself to multiple, large bottle consumption opportunities.

A great starter AND a great finisher……all qualities I love in a beer. Enjoy alone, or with a nice after dinner, light to medium bodied cigar. Goes incredibly well with NY cheesecake as well. I’m sure a truffle now and then wouldn’t hurt either………..Enjoy.
