S- chocolate, mocha, malts, some vanilla, and I can even detect some oatmeal with sweet molasses.

A- beautiful black beer with a creamy mocha head that lasts for the entirety of the pint! The lacing on this beer is unreal, it's absolutely amazing how it sticks to the whole glass.

T/m- subtle well rounded stout. Not overwhelming in any particular are. Chocolate coco flavor, some mocha, a good amount of malts with some tones of vanilla. Very drinkable beer with little to no aftertaste and the alcohol is masked very well. Full bodied could be a little thicker in my opinion.

A darnn good beer, that lets you know that it is good from the pour. Its dark and aromatic with a hint of a sweet smell. It has a small amount of head. The taste is wonderful with alomst a hint of a coffee but this isn't overpowering by any means. Very malty and robust with a great bitterness to finish off the beer.
Bottom line: yet another great beer from Rogue.

The beer pours a jet black color with no light penetration, and a large tan colored head that leaves nice lacing all the way down the glass, another beauty from rogue. The aroma is a complex blend of coffee, molasses, dark chocolate and maybe dark currants...incredible smell. The taste begins with a sweet blackstrap molasses taste, followed by a dark currant fruity taste as well as dark, bittersweet chocolate. Then you get a nice roasted coffee flavor and the beer finishes with a dry, roasted, hoppy bitterness that lingers on the tongue. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth and lightly carbonated which contrasts with the bitter finish of the beer quite nicely. Overall an exceptional stout, not the most drinkable but complex and extremely tasty. One of my favorite american stouts.

A dark brown pour, quick building tan head. Smells like a fine iced coffee. The coffee notes trump the chocolate and chicory. Some maltiness, more hop character. Great drinkable sessionable stout for the stout lover. Very good, probably my 2nd favorite Rogue after the chocolate stout.
