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

Poured from 750ml bottle into a snifter glass. Pours opaque black with a thin beige head. The nose lacked rich, creamy chocolate and oatmeal that I expected. Picked up more coffee and some green herb notes instead. The taste is of more chocolate, going into a burnt cocoa or even liquorice or charcoal. The palate medium bodied, there is a creamy texture in the middle section and a dry (unfortunately slightly astringent) finish. Expected more out of this one bc of its high rating. Not going to be on the bandwagon on this one. Sorry.

No freshness date; Poured in a snifter.

A - One inch of creamy, bubbly, khaki colored head with decent retention; Solid black in color; Just a bit of lacing left behind

S - Notes of oatmeal, licorice, brown sugar, dark chocolate, and just a bit of roastiness

T - Oatmeal and licorice flavors hit first; Afterwards, the licorice disappears, and more toasty, roasty, and mild chocolate flavors step forward with the oatmeal; Some bitterness and earthy hops come through from mid-taste to the finish as well

M - Just below moderate carbonation; Full bodied; Creamy and smooth mouthfeel; Leaves the mouth pretty dry in the finish

O - Overall, this was a decent stout, but not one that really stood out for me. The sum of all the aromas and flavors just didn't seem to come together quite right for my palate. That said, the look and mouthfeel of this beer were great, and I'm hoping the next Rogue beer I try will bring some redemption.

Pitch Black dense color with a small mocha head. Average retention and lacing.

Aroma is of dark malts, coffee, dark chocolate.

Taste is an explosion of roastiness with dark malts, oats, roast grains, coffee and dark bitter chocolate. Ends with a huge bitter note from the roasted character and hops.

Body is huge and thick with and astringent bitter mouthfeel. Carbonation is medium to high. Abv is well hidden.

Extreme stout with lots of body, malt and roastiness. Almost no residual sweetness perceivable.
