not sure why I waited so long to try this wonderful beer. its always on the shelf, and its fairly priced, what have I been doing? anyways, this pours a flat dark brown color with a luxurious creamy head in the tan range, like a nitro pour. the nose is really chocolaty, a lot like youngs or something, its real chocolate, not just chocolate malt. It reminds me of hot chocolate mix or nesquik or something. nice roast, more bitter than sweet on the chocolate in nose and taste. the flavor is really chocolate forward, like a higher end organic dark chocolate bar. its really lovely, especially because its all that flavor with out the sweetness. the feel is velvety smooth, super soft, creamy, and light for the color, although it is full bodied. carbonation is also a lot like a nitro beer, airy and livening. what I like most about this beer is its chocolate intensity without being sugary at all. I think its every bit as good as the regular chocolate stout, and a pretty good bang for your buck. not to be ignored! take it from me.

Presentation: 750mL bottle with a red coating. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Two finger dark tan head that fizzles out rather quickly. It's pretty much black in color and it leaves some good lacing.

Smell: A sweet chocolate smell dominates, with some hints of roasted malt in the background.

Taste: Tastes of dark and milk chocolate, with some smokiness from the roasted malt. It's very sweet. There's some bitterness at the end but it's not really that noticeable.

Mouthfeel: There's very little carbonation. It's creamy, smooth, full bodied and rather strong. After drinking about half a glass it starts getting cloying because of the sweetness.

Overall: It's a sweet treat, best to have it in small doses. You'll enjoy it a lot more if you pair it with any chocolate dessert, because by itself it'll just feel like too much sweetness after a while.

Pours deep black, caramel foamy head that starts off fluffy and recedes.
Smells great. Milky chocolate, dark fruit, a creamy vanilla hint.
Tastes like the smell, but now I'm getting that U-Bet chocolate syrup as it tastes in one of one of those soda shop egg creams. Great vanilla swirls around in here too. A slightly bitter but roasted aftertaste. That's it, simple but great.
Incredibly smooth and silky, carbonation is medium.
Great double stout, and although lacking complexity this one's now a new favorite of mine simply due to how Rogue makes use of what's in here.

Appearance is a deep dark brown with a thin layer of head that still left some nice lacing behind. Chocolate and a little roast were present in the nose. Chocolate was very upfront in the flavor and the roasted bitterness took over on the finish. However, there was a lingering chocolatey sweetness throughout. Excellent effort and a true chocolate beer experience!
