Bomber with a few months age on it poured into a wine glass.

A: Pours a dark slightly caramelish brown color with a 1-1.5 finger mocha colored head. Not a lot of lacing or creamy look to it. Actually a bit of a coke like body.

S: Smells of nice milk chocolate, reminds me a bit of a whopper actually. Pretty one note, but accomplishes what the name sets out for.

T: Oh man, what a disappointment. I had fond memories of single chocolate stout and this doesn't live up to that memory at all. Tastes like flat coke, with a harsh chemical feelign going down. The after taste is very swiss miss hot coco flavor.

M: Thin bodied, the after taste makes my teeth feel like they're rotting. Very chemical, sticky, just gross.

O: Rogue's done it again. I always forget there is a reason I stay away from Roguie but every once and a while they suck me in. Do you like an old vanilla coke with Swiss Miss poured in? Me either. Stay away from this one.

I just drank a milkshake... It was a beer that tasted like a milkshake. Similar to southern tier but not so hersheys. Wow. Not terrible but not wonderful. Sorry for the short review...

Characters require... I'll cone back to this later and edit.... Ooooh it is not the best

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.

Bottle says 9%. Portion of a 22 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A: Pours an opaque black color. The head is a one finger tan shade that retains fairly poorly.

S: Though chocolaty, it perhaps lacks the vibrant intensity of, say, Choklat. Actually, the more it opens up, the stronger the chocolate note becomes. Hard to smell anything else here, as expected. I'm docking points because something here's rubbing me the wrong way - perhaps an artificial tone? Still a likable aroma.

T: Drier than the nose would lead me to believe. The opening is pure chocolate while the midtaste tries to balance it out with an upsurge of strong roasted barley and coffee. Finish has a bit of hoppiness to it, as well...and some strange chemical flavors. Honestly - and I say this as a HUGE fan of Choklat - the chocolaty flavors clash with the roasted and burnt bitterness. It's not fantastic, or even good, but it's easy to drink at least.

M: Like I said in the flavor, this is very dry. Seems like the aim here was for drinkability, and it does succeed here somewhat. Not as cloying as expected - maybe its because I'm not drinking a whole bottle of this solo.

O: This is NOT a true dessert beer, as any sweetness the chocolate provides (and it does provide a good deal) is scrubbed clean by the roasted and hop bitterness. And yet, it still comes off as being wildly out of whack. Cool bottle, meh beer, horrible price - basically, just another Rogue product.

Bomber poured into a Large Duvel Tulip glass.

A: Pours a dark brown hue with a finger brown head that quickly resides leaving little to no lacing.

S: Tons of chocolate and more chocolate. Actually does smell like a chocolate milk shake.

T: Tastes like it smells. It's almost like drinking an alcoholic chocolate milk shake. Has bitter aftertaste which is somewhat surprising given the chocolate this beer has in it.

M: Medium bodied with no hint of alcohol.

O: Not something I would seek out again, but I'm glad to have tried it.

The attack on this beer is where all the action is - chocolaty, malty, good bitter notes. The mid-palate, however, is where the beer takes a turn for the worse and is not ameliorated by the finish. Nothing but medicinal bitterness from the mid-palate onwards... buttressed by an unsmooth texture. I had high hopes for this stout but re-purchase it I will not.
