Appearance: very dark, some faint brown highlights. Pretty impressive mocha head.
Smell: rich chocolate...duh. Reminds of a fudge brownie.
Taste: more of the same. Not getting the complexity I read in many of the top reviewers. Probably my immature palate. But it's damn good. Rich chocolate brownie. Alcohol justisn't perceptible.
Overall: Very fine brew. I gotta give the edge to Southern Tier Choklat but this is damn good.

Poured from the bottle into a large snifter glass.

A simple thin collar light mocha head, leaves a good whispy trace on top, not filmy, settling to a solid collar. Body appears to be a classic walnut black color, extremely opaque and dark.

Mellow nose, of soft malts. Chocolate angle on this is not very obvious. No sweetness, not even a sense of bitterness, cocoa really masked but hiding. Some mellow notes of milk and chocolate angle gets more obvious as the brew warms. You do have to bury your nose a bit though.

Palate brings a good deliverance, and a good worthy name. Thick almost ganache like chocolate waffing in the mid palate. Body is almost a little wet, but the flavors travel all throughout even giving an anise quality on the finish. Some very interesting prickly tart carbonation on this too. Lip coating.

Overall an interesting product from the Rogue, worthy of multiple sips.

A- pours a deep dark brown color that boarders on black. Nice finger and a half of dark tan head with solid retention.

S- smells like chocolate icing, brownies and melted chocolate bar all wrapped into one. A hint of honey and cocoa powder comes out in the middle with a soft roast malt and malted milk ball on the finish.

T- big semi- sweet chocolate flavor with a chocolate icing like character. Cocoa powder and malted milk balls flesh out in the middle. Caramel and a soft roasted malt on the finish with a touch of mild bitterness and dark chocolate. Chocolate mess in a good way!

MF- silky slick mouthfeel with medium body. Softer than average carbonation.

D- good drinkability.

Overall a very good beer. They nailed the chocolate aspect. It comes off a little one dimensional however to reach the realm of greatness.
