Served in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance – Served a deep-deep brown color with a very small light tan head. The head faded very fast leaving almost no lacing.

Smell – A nice aroma of chocolate with some roasted malt notes mixed in are the biggest. These create a slightly semi-sweet chocolate smell when mixed with a lighter sweeter aroma of toffee and milk.

Taste – The taste is of a roasted malt with a good deal of dark chocolate up front. As the taste advances it sweetens some with the toffee flavors coming to the tongue. This toffee creates a more milk chocolate/semi-sweet chocolate bar like flavor in the middle of the taste which, as time advances further continues to strengthen. It is a very satisfying flavor that carries to the end, where some coffee flavors bitter the taste a bit and leave a very satisfying coffee infused dark chocolate flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the creamier side with the carbonation level being on the lower side. Both suit the flavor profile of the beer quite well and allow all the chocolaty flavors to be sensed by the tongue.

Overall –A very nice chocolate stout that is very easy to drink. Rouge has done a nice job with this one and I would recommend.

Rogue Chocolate Stout, 22 oz bomber: The body is deep brown with a touch of translucence. The head is huge, dark in color, a wonder to behold. Aroma is massively chocolate. Once the head settles down, it’s time to dig in. Well, chocolate is the overpowering flavor. This makes for a nice dessert beer, but probably would not pair well with food. Other flavors come and go; coffee has some prominence. There is a bit of bitter to the aftertaste, surprise, like dark chocolate. Not a super thick brew, but not highly drinkable because of the strong chocolate flavor. I would love to try this brew fresh on tap someday. Overall it is a novelty beer worth a taste, but is too chocolaty to make the stable of great stouts that you look forward to trying again and again.

I picked this particular bottle in order to review the top 100 beers of fame. I've had a lot of this beer during my years in Portland, and so this pour in New Jersey gets me closer to home.

I paired this bomber with my steak. I wondered whether the chocolate would work with the red meat, and it really did a good job. Now I continue to sip this as a dessert. One detraction in my meal, don't serve this with pickles (my fault, not the beer's).

Overall this is a very good stout. The name serves it very well. You get a soft chocolate flavor in the nose, taste, and across the palatte in the texture.

This beer is spot on. I recommend it. Rogue tends to be a little expensive on the East Coast, but it is really worth it for these suds.
