Bottle purchased for just 9 bucks at Allegheny discount. Bottled last summer so it's around 8 months old and he told me the retail for this is 16 bucks. I remember it being amazing so I plunked down the money on the spot.

A - A very hard pour produced a full inch of deep mocha head. Color is that of a thick stout a deep black brown. Did I say thick, it literally "globed" out of the bottle.

S - Smell is rather anise and dark chocolate forward, sort of fudge like but not overly sweet to really call this a desert. Smells of some licorice and other fruity dark malts also.

T - Ow yeah I like this. I really enjoy how it never becomes too sweet with the hop kick in the back end, or maybe it a mild twang of grain but it drinks like liquid bittersweet dark chocolate. Thankfully not too much anise or licorice just some mild roasty twang mixed in with chocolate and a mild kick of piney hops.

M - Slick, semi bitter, and the chocolate flavor really coats the mouth.

Overall a really great beer that I wish I could find for the 9 dollar price tag again (like southern tier Chocolat) but if you see this under 10 dollars pick it up. Tasty stuff.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A - Pours a very opaque dark brown, almost black. Has a creamy tan head, leaving a nice lacing.

S - Deep roasted malts, heavy on the chocolate.

T - Chocolate is heavy throughout, but not too sweet or overbaring. Has a bitter kick at the end. Everything working together nicely and hides the alcohol too well.

M - Silky and creamy, medium body with perfect carbonation.

Overall I love this stout. It's been my go to the past couple weeks. I feel the chocolate on this is just right, not too sweet. Definitely worthy of it's rating.

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.
