A black beer, with brown and red on the edges, no light passes. A dense medium mocha head leaves plenty of lacing.

Smell is as advertised, milk chocolate up front and bitter chocolate in the end.

Tastes of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, with a hint of the sweet in the middle. Well balanced.

Feels creamy and smooth, with a touch of bite on the tongue.

Very up front about the chocolate, and it delivers. Nice beer, I am planning a cake to be made from this stuff.

DOA

bomber shared with my gf. snifter.

a - pours a deep dark brown with a thin cap of sudsy, tan foam. head calms slowly, leaving thick rings of lacing in the glass.

s - cocoa powder, sourdough bread, grassy hops.

t - cocoa powder with an herbal bitterness that totally dominates the flavor profile. has an off putting chemical aftertaste that gets really nasty as the beer warms, i'm assuming from the added flavoring.

m - full bodied with lots of carbonation. finer co2 profile.

o - meh. would be enjoyable if it weren't for the weird chemical flavors. one of the few beers i have ever drainpoured. probably won't be buying anything from rogue again.

Pretty amazing beer.
Nice pour, nice color, great smell. Tastes great. Great great great etc etc
I'm not sure how many of these I'd want to have in one sitting, but this is really one of the be(tter?)(est?) stouts I've had.
They're not kidding about the chocolate taste, btw. I've had lots of stouts that were labeled as chocolate but tasted overwhelmingly like coffee. Not so with this one. As a lover of both chocolate and stouts, this one is right up my alley.
Excellent beer

A beautiful pour, rich deep color with chocolate brown head that laced and cling to the glass. The aroma was of a chocolate malt and the taste began chocolate and then had a cofee/tofee flavor. Nice hop balance and a delicious coffee aftertaste. Just a touch dry at the very end.
