look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: pours a dark definitive brown. One finger loose toasted wheat head takes it's time falling down to a thick sheet of the same. Spotty lacing.

S: toasty, smells of pine bark, evident bitterness on the nose here for me. hints of coffee, cocoa beans. Not bad, not what I had expected either. nice. Slightest hint of graham and cinnamon as it warms.

T: More coffee than anticipated, but def less than an east coast coffee beer. Bitter in the back. Not very complex. Plenty of oats, toasty oats.

M: Heavy with medium to high carb. Dry and cloying at the same time. Wish the carb was a bit lower and the beer was smoothed out more.

O: Decent beer, but not a go to for stouts, or oatmeal stouts. Uncertain of the greatness this beer has acheived provided the beer is quite simple.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: Pitch black with a rootbeer float-like head (light and dark tan) that settles fairly quickly.

S: Smells delicious, roasted malts, chocolate, and a bit of licorice. Very, very good.

T: This is pretty much an IPA mixed with some stout. First taste is very good, the roasted malts from the smell are very apparent at first, but after that first sip, those flavors seem to disapear. There seems to be a very strong hop profile in this stout, much stronger than in any other stout I've had. The bitterness overpowers the roasted malts, the chocolate flavors and pretty much any other stout flavors. Aftertaste is pretty bitter with a little bit of burnt malt in the background. Bitter aftertaste lingers for quite a while. I think this is a very unbalanced beer. The high hop profile mixed with the roasted malts and chocolate make it almost taste sour. I know this isn't a bad bottle because I've had a few of these in the past before I decided to write a review and I had the same experience.

M: Pretty thin for a stout. Carbonation is high, but not bad.

D: I'm a huge fan of stouts and a huge fan of Rogue but this is the first time that I've had one that I didn't really want to finish. It's not a bad tasting beer, but it's a bad tasting stout if that makes any sense. Not something I would pour out but definatly not something I would want when I am in the mood for a stout. This is basically a stout made with the hopheads in mind.
