This is one of my favorite stouts. Long lasting aroma, long lasting creamy head, and it also comes in a cool 650ml bottle.

if only my morning coffee was this good.....pours out black with a vigorous brown head which unfortunately died too quickly. hints of burnt caramel and chocolate malts with a subdued cascade hops aroma....the taste is exceptional with bitter malts and hops balancing out the profile...a burnt coffee finish with the hops lingering on....but the hops aren't overwhelming which of course is desired in a stout...but the hops (of course...it's a rogue) dance on the tounge enough to break up any creamy slickness that is usual for stouts. a "hophead" stout for sure, but balanced enough to appeal traditional stout drinkers. yummy!

Dark tan head that is both creamy and lacy, sticks to the side of your glass as you drink it. Massive roasted smell compared to other stouts, with a hint of astringency. BIG Roasted barley assault upfront on the palate with a strong hop bitterness and no hop aroma, slight aftertaste of licorice and bitter chocolate. Thick mouthfeel that also seems to "fizz" on your tounge slightly. This is a big, bold, black and beautiful stout, and why I love the style... very heavy, which is what I drink a stout for...

My first Rogue. This is a great looking beer, pitch black with a light brown, foamy head. Oddly, the aroma is almost nonexistent. What strikes me is the carbonation, both the look of it as you swirl it in your glass, and the feel of it on your tongue. I couldn't detect much chocolate in the taste, but rather a very dark (almost burnt) espresso. Overall, a nice beer, and an impressive introduction to Rogue.

Pitch black, dark tan head. Full bodied, rich, malty, yet bitter-sweet. Cocoa and smoked notes. Like an oatmeal stout and a porter in one. Very filling. Unfortunately my 22oz bottle cost $4.

Opaque, black appearance. Faint aroma. Coffee malt taste with pleasant bitter aftertaste. Reasonably full bodied with a creamy texture. Pretty good stout, very smooth and mellow.

4.38/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 22oz bomber with no freshness date to be found.

Appearance: Deep black with a frothy creamy tan lace.

Smell: Hints of burnt caramel, roasted barley and citric hop make for a very appealing aroma.

Taste: Very very smooth with a creamy malty mouthfeel and some malt crispness. A rich balanced blend of roasted barley, malt sweetness and hop bitterness. In the finish is a chocolaty and coffee after taste with a touch of citric hop and residual sweetness.

Notes: This is a cult classic American stout, drink and learn. Balanced to perfection and a sheer delite to drink.

I opened a twelve ounce bottle that I had been keeping for a cold day. Having had this before, I knew what I was in for. I love the bitterness combined with sweetness. A slight burnt flavor gives keeps you on your toes. It did not have much of a head, so I was a little dissapointed. But hey,what a beer.

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?

Full bodied stout that starts out with intense roasted malt and barley and finishes with subtle hop bitterness. One of the better stouts I've quaffed.

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

The beer smells good, but can't match the marvelous toffee, chocolate and coffee flavors that emerge. Suitable for both bar drinking or as a dessert. Another masterwork from Rogue.

Not as sweet as an English stout, nor as dry as an Irish. A unique middle ground.

A stout loaded with Cascade hops? It works beautifully. Tastes like bittersweet chocolate liquor. Has been my favorite stout for a while, and probably will be for the rest of my life. (perhaps with the exception of Pike XXXXX stout) If you can't decide between an IPA and a stout, have a Willy Shakes and have your cake and eat it too!

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.
