1 pint bottle
Pours black with a tan head which dissipates rather quickly. The nose is chocolate mostly with faint auromas of roasted malt and oat. Taste is a very smooth drinking delicious stout, some bitterness upfront then the expected chocolate in the middle followed by a somewhat dry finish. Creamy and heavy mouthfeel. Easy on the palatte and certainly drinkable.

A beautiful beer. Pitch black with a dark tan head of 1/2" and staying power. Thick stick to the glass.
Aromas of dark chocolate and licorice. Hoppier than I expected it to be. Very roasted and and very chocolatey.
Tastes of coffee and cream. Of course it had chocolate in the flavor as well. Creamy mouthfeel. Excellent beer.

Appearance: The beer has a dark brown-black body, completely opaque, and is topped with an inch of dark tan foam. Good head retention, a 1/2" stays the entire time.
Smell: This has a wonderfully rich nose of cocoa powder and lightly roasted malt; only the most faint touch of bitterness in the nostrils.
Taste: This is pure decadence. A well balanced malt profile gives this a rounded flavor, not an astringent one. Rich dark malts combine nicely with real chocolate? to elicit the cocoa flavor in the nose, and even a sweet coffee liquer flavor. So smooth and chocolately. Mmmm. Even though I don't match beer with desert, this could convince me otherwise. Roasted bitterness creeps in to finish, and keeps one honest.
Mouthfeel: Very nice, not thick and viscous like an Imperial, but not flimsy and weak like a dry stout. Just right.
Drinkability: I'd gladly have more than one. Delicious. I'm very happy to have found it on tap in my neck of the woods.

22 oz. bottle.
Pours black with a 1 finger brown head. Milk chocolate and blackened malt smell with cinnamin and vanilla. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Very chocolatey taste with toasted malts and vanilla in the background. Finishes bittersweet and smooth.
An excellent dessert beverage.

A - Solid brown/black in color. Sloppy/foamy light brown head.
S - Extremely rich chocolate complex aromas. Dark chocolates, cocoa. Couldn't smell any better.
T - Musty, dry chocolate taste similar to powdered chocolate, disappointing after such a great smell. Java/malt finish.
M - Very smooth, the carbonation cleans off the palate and leaves it with a smooth thin chocolate coating.
D - Smooth and easy to drink, but the taste isn't what I was expecting.

Pours black with light tan head that dissipates quickly.
Smells like chocolate milk with a hint of toffee.
Taste follows smell. Lots of chocolate milk flavor. Toasted malt is there. Very little bitterness.
Mouthfeel is far too watery for me. Average carbonation.
Overall this was good but lacks complexity.

Rogue Chocolate Stout
A: Looks like oil being poured out of the bottle. It has a lot of carbonation, and a nice brown head on top.
S: It smells of dark roasted malts, with a hint of chocolate.
T: The carbonation hits your tongue, and while you are letting the beer roll around on your tongue, the beautiful roasted malts come out. The malts are quite nice and refreshing; however, the chocolate rests on your tongue and it begs you to drink more. I figured there would be more chocolate in this beer, but it's still god damn tasty.
M: Thick as fuck. This feels like you can eat it with a spoon!
D: Incredibly drinkable considering it's thickness. I'm sure that after 2 or 3 pints, I'll be full, but I'd still want another!
