Look: dark, 45+srm. Creamy, healthy head.

Nose: cocoa, chocolate, malt, smoke

Taste: the chocolate comes through like a dark, bitter chocolate, which produces a drier tasting beer. Some smoke.

Delicious.

For a dark beer it has a thin appearance and a very mild aroma. The chocolate taste is minimal to say the least. I think this it also tastes artificial.

If I could give the taste 0 I would. Incredibly hoppy and estery for this type of beer. Zero chocolate taste that gives it its namesake. Bye-bye $8. It went down the drain.

Rogue Chocolate Stout, 5.8% ABV, 69 IBU. Pours black and medium viscosity, no head because a taproom pour. Nose is chocolate sweetness, taste is moderate chocolate and a bitter close. Decent mouthfeel. Overall OK, but not as good as their double chocolate stout. While the chocolate nose is great, nothing matches the chocolate nose of a Samuel Smith Organic Chocolate Stout once the head clears.

Disappointing as I really enjoy their double version. Pours dark with small brown head. Aroma is the best part with chocolate dominating as expected among the roast. Flavor does not follow. Initial chocolate fights to remain known through the sip, while semi-sour notes, and not quite matching hop bitterness takes over. Finish is a little biting. Could be smoother and sweeter to be enjoyable for me.
