I feel compelled to write a poem in honor of the great bard and namesake of this beautiful brew. But Alas I am neither the poet, nor the writer that legendary bard was, so I shall keep it simple in my review.

This Rogue casts forth darkness from the bottle that would conceal any Roguish behavior like a moonless, cloud covered night. The only light that shall pass through this dark cavern passes through the caramel colored thick, creamy head that is riddled with craters and caves.

A bouquet of burnt caramel and roasted malt come forth while aromas of coffee, chocolate, and light floral hops steal through and will pass unobserved unless a cautious guard is in place. Remember we are dealing with a Rogue in the truest sense that will try to beguile you at every turn.

With the taste this Rogue turns on a smoothness designed to lull you into a comfort and easiness around this brew. But beware for to much of anything can be dangerous, especially with a rascal like this Stout. Like many of the legendary Bard?s tales, this Stout starts with a semi-sweetness that conceals a bitterness to come. Smooth throughout, with no plot holes or disappointments this Rogue continues with flavors of coffee, chocolate, bitter hops, and a dryness that continues into more hop fashioned bitterness.

This is a truly legendary brew and well deserving of its name. The Great Bard would be proud that his Rogue bears his name.
