hmmm Rogue... this company is beginning to get under my nerves... all of their dark beers seem to have the same acidic, pungent, chocolate and coffee flavour. Perhaps this is some weird form of conditioning... the first Rogue beer I ever had was the Double Chocolate Stout... anyway...

It looks alright, black with weak lacing, the head was big but it is gone now. The smell is what I described above... Acrid yet savory. I would probably rate the beer higher if it was a regular stout as opposed to an oatmeal. The smooth, creamy, thick oatmeal character is not there (at least not enough).

For the quality and the price, this one is definitely a pass.

Got this at De Bierkoning in Amsterdam.

From a bomber into a snifter.

APPEARANCE: Pours black and produces a 2 finger, medium looking, mocha colored head with great retention. Black body and medium-high levels of carbonation. Head slowly fades to a good film cap leaving some immediate clingy lacing. A slight wisp remains until the end and leaves touches of lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Roasted malts with obvious oat notes in there. Sweet milk chocolate and notes of cream as well. Nice nose.

TASTE: Some roasted malts with oats and sweet milk chocolate. More roast and cocoa powder at the swallow. A mild aftertaste of roasted malt, cocoa and bitter hops. Decent, but nothing special, and not bold enough to really stand out from the crowd.

PALATE: Medium body and higher, prickly carbonation. Not as creamy as it could be for an oatmeal stout. Goes down slightly prickly and finishes somewhat dry on the palate. Too prickly, carbonated, and not creamy enough.

OVERALL: A decent beer, but the palate let it down a little. This one is worth trying out, and definitely fits the bill if you're looking for an easy drinking stout, though I certainly wouldn't recommend going out of your way.
