Poured an espresso brown with a dark rich head. Aromas were strong - especially the bitter chocolate. Flavors were rich dark malts, more bitter chocolate and subtle wood flavors. Full bodied flavors with a finish that lasts - this was a great one. Terrific dessert beer!

Admittedly not at all a fan of Rogue but I'm very impressed with this brew.

A - Black, nice mocha head and solid retention, swirls in the glass bring it back up no problem. Very nice.

S - Best aspect of this brew, especially upon semi-aggressive swirls. Huge chocolate blast, semi sweet chocolate, and dark chocolate. Good roastiness backing it up and notes of vanilla but you have to look for it. Reminds me of a chocolate forward Sierra Nevada Stout.

T - Chocolate forward Sierra Nevada Stout is the best example to give or relate to. The chocolate is forward but not as forward as the nose suggests. Great roastiness...textbook stout focusing on chocolate. Very nice.

M - smooth, crisp, and no problem killing this bomber solo.

O - Perfect for a stout fix. Not many I would take over this at this ABV range.
