On tap at the Rogue brewpub in SF (in a nice Rogue goblet, to boot). Pours a very dark black that is typical of a stout, with a minimal amount of head. The aroma is dominated by the sweet chocolate, along with a bit of coffee and licorice. The taste is almost like a milk chocolate beer, with the milk chocolate coming at the frontend with some hops and bitterness showing through after the initial chocolate blast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and carbonated, but very smooth and enjoyable.
Overall, a nice stout that is worth checking out if you don't mind being hit hard by chocolate in your beer. It is very drinkable for a double stout since the ABV is 8% and the alcohol is hidden relatively well.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a nice thick black with a tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. You need to agressively pour to produce a head. Smells like a typical chocolate stout. Seeing that this is a "double" chocolate stout I was anticipating a very strong chocolate flavor. More of a coffee flavor. Not as strong as I was expecting. Not too sweet but just a nice decent amount of sweetness. The bitterness is very mild. Overall, a typical chocolate stout but a bit of a letdown with the marketing.
