Poured into a standard pint glass. The beer is a coffee black in color, with a dark cream colored head that dissipates quickly. SOme light lacing. Smells of bitter chocolate, roasted malts, and vanilla. Tastes of bitter chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, and oats. The mouthfeel is very smooth and medium bodied.

Overall, this is an excellent stout. It's got several flavors that come through and it's a good session beer, that is if you want to pay the $6 per bomber ...

Rogue : Shakespeare Stout

22oz bottle. Pours black as night with a mocha head. Aroma of chocolates, coffee and some alcohol. In the taste, more of the aforementioned chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, coffee, char, espresso and very little booze or alcohol. The oats have made this beer silky smooth and goes down very nicely and easily. This bottle had some age on it, and was still very nice. Overall, a solid oatmeal stout with good flavors that went well together. Would be a fine dessert beer to pair with chocolate.

A: 1/4" light brown head over extremely dark brown / almost black liquid.

S: Coffee, chocolate, oats.

T: Bitter up front with toasted malt and coffee flavours which transitions to oats in the middle and a slight chocolate finish.

M: Medium to thin viscosity and a very high level of fine carbonation.

O: Another overrated and overpriced beer by Rogue. I expected more given the price tag, and I prefer Anderson Valley's Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout a lot more to this one.

Serving Type - Bottle

A - Nice, very dark ebony color, a good thick head that last a good amount of time

S - Very robust, I'm getting chocolate and coffee smells

T - Great, can really taste the malts as well as the chocolate, it is overall very chocolatey which is good to me. I'm not really getting the oats but that's ok with this brew, very subtle on the hops

M - Very rich and creamy, extremely smooth

O - Overall a very solid brew, I personally like the chocolate taste of Stouts so this one was really good. Like i said earlier i never got the oats, but still very good.
