Bomber poured into a nonic. Pitch black body upon which sits a khaki creme head that sticks around until the end leaving sticky, chunky lacing all the way down.

Smell is of roasted malts and bitter chocolate. A slight backdrop of coffee soaked hops.

Taste is more of the same, but with stronger overtones. Fairly dry finish with notable astringency from the dark malts. Just a touch of yeast on the finish from the bottle re-fermentation.

Mouthfeel is solid, goes down very easy. Could perhaps use a touch less carbonation.

This is a solid oatmeal stout. Not sure it is one of the best, however.

A- Pours a solid black with a light brown head

S- Roasted Malts, chocolate and espresso

T- I like this a little more than the Rogue Chocolate stout. The difference b/t the two is that I find this beer to be more roasted. In the Chocolate stout all you taste is chocolate but in the Shakespeare stout you can taste the chocolate as well as some good sweet coffee with a nutty backbone.

Food Pairing- I made beer braised chicken with this and it was really good.
