Shakespeare on tap at Pony Bar, served in a 14-oz pint.

Appearance: Beautiful nitro pour, intensely black with a foamy mocha head I just wanna bite! Outrageous lacing.

Smell: Chocolate, coffee, hops. Stickiness. Nice barnyard-farm aromas. But all very muted due to the nitro serving.

Taste: Hop-forward, then roasty-toasty. Smooth but rich, with a strong bitter coffee feel. The chocolate is less intense in the mouth as opposed to the nose. Some dairy, milk powder.

Mouthfeel: As expected, creamy and rich, easy to drink. A little too bitter at times, but fine. Dry like a classic Irish stout. Water, please! Full voluptuous body all around, like a curvaceous ebony mama.

Overall: Nothing earth-shattering for sure, pretty simple overall but oh-so-pleasant and drinkable. You could session this all day and have fun.

Pours black with tan one-fingered head in snifter. Tons of thick, sticky lacing. Head lingers for some time too.

Smell is heavy with chocolate and dark toasted malt. There is also a hoppy character to it as well.

Taste is heavily dark chocolate and roasted malt. Little bit of coffee and caramel. Lots of bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is moderate carbonation. Medium bodied beer.

Overall this was good. Very drinkable.

Pour is black, with a nice off-white head.

Smell is dry, with what smells like a dark chocolate bitterness and some coffee but hops also come to mind.

Taste is slightly sweet, with a nice roasted malt presence. Chocolate, but with a dark fruit flavor reminiscent of a Belgian Quad or BBQ.

Finishes chewy and slightly bitter, but still very balanced.

Bomber from the Wegman's in Syracuse

Appearance - Black colour with a huge size fizzy and frothy brown head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, coffee, smoke

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and a roasted/burnt flavour. There is also some light touches of dark fruit and a smokiness. It ends with a grainy chocolate aftertaste with some light bitterness.

Overall - Crazy drinkable and delicious. The beer has a fantastic balance and the appearance in the glass is near perfect. Another solid brew from Rogue that deserves its high reviews.
