22 oz. bomber bottle.
Appearance: Classic stout black. Thick, creamy, brown head. Finely bubbled and hangs in there. Nice lace. Gorgeous.
Smell: Licorace, smoke, hops (hoppier than most), espresso, molasses, even raisin. Not as earthy as other examples.
Taste: Beautiful balance of hops and malt. Coffee, bitter chocolate, Smoked/roasted malt, plum, raisin add a sweet balance. Dry, bitter hop/roast finish.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, silky, soothing alcohol warmth.
Drinkability: This is a favorite...I try to always have one in the fridge.
For me, this simply is stout.

Exceptional pretty much sums up this fave stout of mine.Reminds me of a Sierra Nevada stout kicked up a couple o' notches. Roasty, chocolaty & chewy...I think you could stand a spoon on end in this one! Can Rogue do no wrong I ask?

Rogue Shakespeare stout.

A= pours a pitch black hue with a light brown head and leaves faint lacing behind.

S= smells of oats and spices and a hint of coffee.

T= tastes like a average stout in the beginning,
it has a nice bitterness with a chocolate coffee finnish.

MF= has a smooth tingling mouth feel. perfectly carbonated.

this is the second stout ive had from rogue and its better than the chocolate stout, i actually think its better than samuel smiths imperial stout.

enjoy cheers!

If you love Stout, you have to love this one....the Irish should be ashamed and turn to Portland, Oregon to satisfy their love for a style that their own breweries have long forgotten how to make. Both the Shakespeare and it's seasonal variant Wild Irish Rogue are stunning examples of what you can do with dark roasted malts and a love of the brewing art.
