Rouge 15,000 pours a black color with a nice large lacing tan head. There is a yeasty aroma with nice notes of sweet and roasted malts, and very subtle hints of coffee. The taste is nice, rich and creamy with roasted malt flavors, hints of coffee and subtle yeasty tastes. Very nice full flavors, and creamy, nice carbonation. Overall a very nice and full bodied beer.

"Rogue 15000 Brew Belgian Style Stout" according to the draught list at the bar. Served on-draught into a New Belgium branded stem-goblet. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a half finger khaki colour head of nice cream and thickness, but below average (~1 minute) retention. Solid nontransparent opaque black body colour. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Dark malts, caramel, cream, chocolate malt, milky notes, and light roast - definitely not enough roast. Moderate in strength. Appealing, but a bit simple. No yeast or alcohol is detectable.

T: Cream, caramel, dark malts, chocolate malt, and buried roast. Simple but well balanced, if rather muted. None of the flavours really ring distinct or have much impact; it lacks depth of flavour and amplitude. It's rather timid all around, a strange character for a so-called stout (Belgian style or not). I do like it, though. It's pleasant to drink. No yeast or alcohol comes through.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with some welcome creaminess. Pretty well carbonated, but not ideal. Very poor palate presence, holding back its flavours from their full potential. Too wet. Suits the flavour profile okay, but doesn't feel custom-tailored to it.

Dr: Drinkable but muted - even somewhat bland. I wouldn't get it again. A nice little stout from Rogue, but it fails to impress.


Drinks okay from a goblet. I'd prefer a nonic, snifter, or teku.

Serve slightly chilled.

Poured from tap into snifter at the Ruck in Troy, NY. Pours a deep black with nice off white head. The descripion says its a Belgian Dark, but it smells like a porter/stout...roasted malts and coffee aromas. Same with flavor - no belgian here...roasted malts, coffee...maaaaybe some sweet dried fruity notes, but not enough where I would pick this as a belgian in a bling tasting. Its still an awesome brew though! Worth a try for sure...

Is there a "Belgian Stout" category? If not, there should be. BSDA does not do this beer justice.

Enjoyed this tonight at Bittercreek... Nice size goblet for a pricey $7, but it was pretty good.... Black brew with some ruby highlights near the stem.. short lasting dark brown head... no real lacing.

Nose is roasty with hints of coffee... some pronounced spicy phenols lets you know this has some Belgian roots... a little bit of sweetness in the nose helps tie everything together.

Flavor is the same as the aroma... meshes very well.. pretty damn drinkable...

Body was a shade less than medium.... sorta creamy mouthfeel...

I liked this one... definitely not an everyday drinker, but I would buy this one periodically... Cool to get to try it without ordering a bottle from Rogue.

All 4's.

1.5 finger tan head on a jet black body. Very nice lacing and excellent retention. Aroma stays hidden under the thick head with mostly hints of coffee and citrus with herbal notes. Flavor is a nice mix of roasted bitterness and both tart and sweet citrus. Earthy hops with a nice yeast presene. Full bodied and moderate carbonation. Nicely balanced and fairly complex. More drinkable than I was expecting as well.
