A: poured jet black (maintained when held up to a light) with an inch of caramel-colored head (minute settle). some sticky, globby lacing but that settled quickly.

S: nesquik chocolate syrup (dominating the olfaction), roasted grains, and just a slight undertone of rottenness that's reminiscent of the vegetable drawer of the refrigerator after a few weeks of neglect.

T: given the potent chocolate smell, i was expecting an overwhelming chocolate-milk taste, but the taste was actually a little underwhelming. there's a slight nose of chocolate but that's about all i'm getting.

M: rather light. again... leaving something to be desired. a bitter-tinge down the middle of the tongue and it's gone.

O: despite what sounds like a negative review, i didn't hate this beer. it had an enjoyable, unique smell (one of the most chocolaty smellin' beers i've ever had) and an easy-on-the-palate taste; the appearance and smell just got my hopes up. i was expecting a trip down memory lane when i used to put entirely too much chocolate in my milk when no one was looking.

22oz bomber served into a mug

pours a dark brown with a monstrous creamy head

if leinenkugels is the fruity pebbles beer, this one is cocoa pebbles. cocoa, dark chocolate, and some roasty toasty malts in the nose

taste hits you with a chocolate jab, followed by a chocolate straight, and finished off by a chocolate right hook.

pretty damn crisp and and sweet but not too overpowering

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.
