Grabbed a 22oz. bomber from BevMo! Had mine for dessert with some chocolates.

Pours a thick jet black with a thick sponge-like tan head, Awesome foamy lacing, so dark I can't see any carbonation.

Aroma of roasted caramel, chocolate and black coffee. Nice hoppy scent.

Buttery smooth texture. Big flavors of chocolate, and roasted caramel with a nice acidic hoppy bitterness. Leaves a dry tartness like black coffee on the back on the palate.

Perfect stout, great dessert beer. Awesome balance of roasted malts and bitter hops. One of my favorites!
Cheers!

Poured a viscous dark, opaque black with a tan colored head that was thick, leaving behind quite a bit of lacing. Large, intense bubbles cover the surface, even after the head dissipates. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt, smoke, dry sherry, and black coffee; just wonderful. Refreshingly smooth with dark chocolate flavors that start off subtle but grow more intense as the beer warms. The sweetness of the beer is never overpowering or all-encompasing. Hints of smoke and burnt sugar are just wonderful, adding great depth and flavor. Creamy and textured in my mouth, this beer has a dry and bitter finish, very much dominated by coffee/expresso flavors. All together, this beer works on every level and is a joy to drink. Try pairing this with gourmet dark chocolates or cheesake...just incredible!

This beer is truly a force to be reckoned with. A remarkable stout. Another big winner in the Rogue portfolio.
