A-Pours black with a solid two finger tan head that has excellent retention and beautiful lacing.
S-The aroma has a pronounced toasted oat note to it with some dark chocolate syrup and a very sweet caramel aroma. I can tell this is gonna be sweet and it smells like dessert.
T-Oh my goodness! It's truly like drinking the chocolate truffles rolled in quality cocoa powder I made with some left over gonosh I had, but in liquid form! This is delish! A perfect dessert beer for sure. And there are some earthy hops in the flavor as well along with a perfect bittereness to keep it from being too sweet. WOW
M-The mouthfeel is so balanced as far as dryness and sweetness goes. It has a medium to full body and very creamy because of the oats.
O-I fully enjoyed this beer and is probably the only Rogue beer I would buy again because of their high prices, (not flavor) most of their beers are way over priced, but this one is worth every penny for sure. When I go to a friends house, I'm bringin' this one for dessert. Such a well done chocolate beer. Thanks Rogue for this offering

A - Pours dark brown and opaque. Some hints of cola show around the edges of the glass. Head topped out at one inch and stuck around for longer than expected. The lacing left behind was nice.

S - Smokey roasted malt aromas come through first but do not dominate. Quickly behind are notes of maple and dark chocolate. Even though the chocolate comes in midway, it steals the show and sticks around once it shows up. Overall the aroma is mild and pleasing.

T - Chocolate. Dark and bitter at first but a smoother milk chocolate comes in later. Behind the chocolate lay some roasted malt and a hint of smoke. Finishing off the flavor was a small amount of alcohol and coffee.

M - Medium bodied with good carbonation. Silky feel. Finsh is bittersweet, clean, and does not stick around for long.

D - Drinkability is good. The beer is a good example of how to showcase the chocolate flavor. I would gladly have more of this one. The alcohol is relatively low which makes is disappear even faster.

Pitch black with a thick brown relentless head thats there to stay. Exceptional lacing. Smells like espresso with chocolate undertones. Like drinking cold dark coffee no sugar no cream. Bitter like 72% dark chocolate. It does have a little sweetness to it. Excellent mouthfeel. So smooth. Im now in love with this beer. One of the best American Stouts Ive had in awhile.

Dark black/brown pour with an outstanding brown head.

Chocolate dominates the nose with a dollop of vanilla as well.

Roast flavors on the tip of the tongue blend into a rich cocoa flavor midtongue. Ends with a heavy bitter roast/hoppiness on the back and sides of the tongue.

Rich and full bodied, this beer is an incredible drinkable fantastic treat.

Black hole colored if I must say so with no light transmission. I do believe light is actually being sucked into this beer. There was ample brown head to begin with which reduced to barely a coating. Aroma was of toffee with hits of tootsie rolls and expresso. Flavors of ample toasted malts and a touch of smoke. Chocolate is definately a major player in this beer. There was also an unexpected touch of slightly citrus hops coming through. Almost like that orange flavored chocolate you get around the holidays. And at the very end was a tiny amount of coffee aftertaste. Mouthfeel was thinner than I expected, not really heavy at all. This is a good after-dinner beer that I'd gladly have a couple of and will revist again.

Pours a very viscous and dark brownish-black used motor oil look with a massive rocky tan head. The smell of the expected chocolate and some roasted malt and hops make your mouth water. The ultra silky smooth taste consists of bitter-sweet chocolate with a nice rich malty roast, spicing that seems like nutmeg, and perfectly blended hops round out this fine brew! This is a heavy bodied brew that is as creamy as it gets. Very nice!

Notes: This is a dessert in a bottle and I'd take this over any actual dessert any day. A very smooth yet complex brew that is the epitome of a chocolate brew! Cheers!
