A - as black as a moonless night in BFE country. beige luxurious head that bubbles like a witches cauldron

S - Massive chocolate notes on the nose. Roasty barley, citrus hops in the background.

T - Wow, is this exceptional. This chocolate stout nails it on the head for me. Its so chocolaty but in a totally natural and not-cloying way. Its also got a nice roasted malt component but not so much to where it begins to make the brew harsh. It simply complements the general theme adding a bittersweet note. this is like mainlining pure dark chocolate but in a way that's pleasurable and not overthetop sweet. Rather dry and a hop bitterness is featured surprisingly strongly thoughout the mid and backend - but very refined and nicely (think orange zest mixed with the finest quality cocoa). Superb. Makes my heart giddy.

M - awesome texture - relatively full bodied with the right amount of booze and everything else to make this texturally phenomenal as well as delicious on taste. the tastes become richer and more intriguing with every additional sip you take.

D - awesome. I really could drink this and not be overwhelmed at all.

Overall, a solid brew and my favorite stout (and beer)from rogues

Pours out black with a brown head that, before settling down, looks much like that whipped marshmallow stuff that comes in a jar. Nice lacing. Smells of really high quality hot chocolate, not that Swiss Miss shit, earthy and sweet in the nose.

Delicious. There really isn't much else to say. Very rich chocolate flavors with an earthy bitterness in the end. The mouthfeel is like velvet that leaves behind an ever so slightly prickly carbonation as it goes over the tongue. I have to keep myself from downing this bottle so quickly. So enjoyable to drink.

With a name like Chocolate Stout, I was expecting this to be way to sweet. Rogue did an excellent job. The bitterness in the end is perfectly done in contrast to the chocolate flavors, making this like a liquified block of dark chocolate. I really don't see how this beer can be improved. Flawless.
