Enjoyed with Dark Chocolate & Truffle hunks.
No smoke from the bottle. Poured into my rather stout, Holy Grail style glass.

Onyx. Tan head of small to medium bubbles, bit of lacing.

Delicious smell of malty Chocolate. Faint, almost sour Vanilla taint to the strong Malt.

Creamy cooking chocolate & vanilla aftertaste, with a mellow hop-coffee presence throughout.
but at first a mighty Dark Chocolate crush!
Simple yet not sleepy.
well done, especially for the low booze %.

This certainly has a place in candy land valhalla!

Liked the ABV; taste was bitter coffee, with artificial chocolate flavor; average chocolate stout.

L. Black. Light tan head which leaves a thick bubbly patch for a while.
S. Sweet but well roasted malt, hint of espresso, chocolate brownie in the oven. More chocolate as it warms.
T. Smooth chocolate charcoal. Light caramel and bready right away, deeply roasted to not quite burnt malt, sweetened dark chocolate comes and goes until it lingers on the finish, fruity light roast coffee comes through nicely in the middle, bitter with grassiness and pine in the end with a lingering cocoa.
F. Medium leaning toward a full body, decent level of carbonation, pretty dry in the finish.
O. Not a dessert, but well balanced with a surprising and pleasant bitterness in the back. I gotta try me some Rogue more often. Cheers ! ! !

Nice above average body,just below average carbonation. Aroma is roasted malt,black coffee and cream,and some dark chocolate. Taste is very similar to aroma,as it warms it becomes more complex. It is mildly sweet yet with a slight dry finish and a bitter quality that lingers on the tongue and reminded me of burnt coffee and cream. Overall it was definitely too notch and an overall well made,flavorful beer

A great beer! Full of creamy chocolate taste and smell. Dark black.
However, its aftertaste is a bit too dry, which preclude me from drinking too much in one sitting.

The bitterness of the coffee notes may overwhelm palates sensitive to hoppiness or biterness. Very smooth mouth feel; round and reminiscent of cafe con leche. Decent nuttiness and roasted coffee bean notes that settle nicely. Overall, very well crafted.
