This was the last of the beers I picked up at the liquor store the other day on my super special beer run. I drink Coors on a day to day basis, but drink the good stuff like this when the mood strikes me. Needless to say, I was sad this was the last one I had. Side poured with mild aggression from the bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - Pours a beautiful deep brown color with a magnificent, two finger caramel color head that lasts a few minutes and actually leaves a little lacing. Standard Rogue packaging, which is always good. Beautiful looking presentation.

Smell - Roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa, deliciousness, vanilla, and sweetness. The smell is right up front, no deception here.

Taste - Almost like an alcoholic chocolate milk. The delicious roasted malts and chocolate balance each other out nicely, keeping the sweetness from getting too out of control. Other flavors such as vanilla play bit roles on the palate, but the malts and chocolate are primary. And they are delicious

Mouthfeel - Smooth, rich, and thick. The same qualities I like in a woman I like in a beer, and this has it.

Overall - Drink this beer immediately, preferably with your buddies or by yourself in front of a fire on a cold night. It is excellent.

4.26/5  rDev +2.7%

Appearance - Pitch black with a nice foamy head which laces the glass very well

Smell - I just smell the sweet chocolate.

Moutfeel - Very smooth, light carbonation.

Taste - The chocolate taste is first but it is not as overwhelmingly sweet as i thought it would be. It actually had a nice balance to it with a little bitterness.

Great go to chocolate stout. the new rebel hop really gives it a bitter finish that isn't quite as subtle as the discontinued 9 ingredient cascade hop version. I think the ibu on this new version is underrated but this stout is great being as it's not an imperial/double stout it has a slightly thin mouthful and a modest 6%abv but it makes up with chocolaty goodness from beginning to end.. I recommend this beer and I believe it shines as it warms as do most stouts I recommend a slight chill our pull it out of the fridge and let it sit and warm a bit I enjoy it from a balloon so it warms in my hand.. the slight complexity that is there can be easily missed if it's to cold and it will really mask the bitter chocolate taste...
