Served on tap in a 10 oz snifter
Appearance –Served a black brew with a small tan head. The head fades fast to a thin film leaving a great level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is rich and strong. It is heavy of a sweet mild chocolate smell. Mixed with these aromas are lighter notes of a vanilla and light caramel smell. Overall, big and delicious.
Taste – The flavor starts out of a smooth semi-sweet chocolate flavor mixed with a roasted malt taste. Vanilla soon comes to the tongue and along with it some sweeter and more sugary flavors of caramel and molasses. While it comes to the tongue, the sweetness soon dwindles some as more roasted malt and a bitter chocolate flavor then come to the tongue. While not detected in the slightest in the nose, at the very end a light alcohol flavor comes to the tongue and leaves a very nice bitter chocolate booze flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the medium to more creamy side with a carbonation level that was rather average. It was an alright mouthfeel, although more creaminess and a bit less carbonation would have likely better suited the chocolate, roast and alcohol flavors of the brew.
Overall – It is a rather tasty brew and the name is very appropriate. It begins with sweeter chocolate and then turns more to a bitter chocolate, with big dose of chocolate in the nose. It is tasty and well worth a try.

I really liked the Double Mocha Porter so I was lookin forward to this beer,my expectations were met and exceeded.The pour couldnt get any better, (hence the score)jet black with a fluffy,craterous two finger deep mocha colored head,just perfect in the imperial nonic.Deep almost fude-like chocolate in the nose,a bit of raw nuttiness as well,you could say like a walnut fudge brownie.The chocolate on the palate is cakey but not overly sweet,just enough raw earth/nut in the finish keeps this beer immensely drinkable and makes me want more than I have.I like this better than ST Choklat and that is really saying something,this is a great beer,my wife and I will enjoy my second bottle.

Had this on tap at ROGUE Ales Publick House in San Francisco. I was told it was 9.5% by the beer tender, but I see it is listed here at 8%. I thought it was lacking in alcohol for a 9.5 ABV so I tend to agree with the 8% here.
The Rogue Double Chocolate Stout pours a pitch black in the glass with a thick chocolate mousse like head, pretty good retention, but no real lacing to talk about. On the nose are pronounced aromas of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, chocolate truffle, chocolate cake...needless to say, there is a lot of chocolate. Besides chocolate, I get raisin, roasted hazelnuts, espresso, & cognac.
Everything that I got on the nose, I get on the palate with a full & rich texture, full body, & long finish. Overall, this is a solid beer worth trying at least once. Recommended if you're looking to try something new, but if you're strapped for cash....go with the regular chocolate stout instead.

750 ml bottle. Pours dark brown black with a medium creamy brown head that goes to a thin film and laces the glass some.
The aroma is sweet baker's chocolate with some roast and a touch of alcohol.
The flavor is a bit thin and subdued. It's some slightly chalky, very sweet, roasted chocolate malts, with some vegetal notes. The finish is some strong roast bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly watery with soft carbonation.
Overall, it had promise as a sweet dessert beer, but it had too many flaws.
