poured into chalice

A-pours a dark deep brown/black. can't see any light through. has a chocolate brown head

S-smells of chocolate and a bit of oatmeal. Smells very thick.

T-tastes of a nice rich chocolate with a bit of oatmeal worked in. has sort of a bitterness to it, not very sweet. Not really any coffee to it either.

MF-Thick and creamy. balanced carbonation. pretty smooth.

O-this is delicious. I have had it once before and it was just as good. I highly recommend this, one of the best chocolate stouts I have had.

This one is better after it gets a bit warmer because the cold numbs alot of the flavors.

Excited for this one, Rogue is great and this beer comes highly recommended.

A gentle pour into my 2012 KATE THE GREAT SNIFTER gave a one finger dark hkaki head. Faded to a nice coating of tan bubbles on top of a black beer.

Smell is a hint of dark chocolate, some floral hops too. Very nice, a bit sharper than I expected. But nice.

Taste immediately hits you with VERY dark chocolate accentuated by a slight burst of hops. Fades into a creamy, milky chocolate. There is NO DOUBT that this is a chocolate stout. I'm currently drinking this one a bit too cold...

After letting this thing warm in the glass for 15 minutes, it's slightly creamier with a milkier chocolate finish. Goes down easy.

Moutfeel is slightly lighter than ideal. If this was thicker, I'd be in love. Still, for a 6% ABV beer this is what it is: easy to drink and quite choco-riffic.

This was a good beer. It's not the best thing I've ever had, but I'd be happy to drink this again.

Pours a deep brown cola color with a two finger frothy khaki colored head. The head stays for a decent amount of time and leaves some lines of lace on the glass. The aroma is of a roasty malt backbone with the aroma of bitter chocolate coming through as well. The taste has a roasty malt backbone with a bitter chocolate taste up front and in the middle. The back end has a milk chocolate sweetness to it. The mouthfeel is smooth and lowly carbonated. Overall it is a decent stout, not best in class but it is good for what it is suppose to be.

Poured a 2" head of nice deep mocha, and with longer lifespan than you usually see in a dark beer. The body is black as coffee. Smell had roasted malt up front and chocolate more in the back. Taste was the reverse, rich on cocoa. There's a long bitter aftertaste more akin to unsweetened dark chocolate than bitters or roasted malt. All in all a quality chocolate product, and a decent beer.
