It pours a sold black color with around two inches of a light brownish color head. The smell is almost nothing but chocolate. Not the bland Hersey's kind though. The smell is a mix of milky chocolate and dark bitter chocolate. The taste starts with a milky chocolate flavor that moves on to a bitter yet chocolaty kind of finish. The finish in particular is amazing: it highlights a blend of bitter hops, slightly bitter, slightly sweet chocolate and slightly sweet, slightly Smokey and slightly bitter malts. Overall an excellent chocolate stout that has strong chocolate flavors without being too sweet.

Rogue Chocolate Stout pours a rich dark brownish black with a nice lingering head. The smell is strong of chocolate after the initial pour, but fades quickly. It has a nice taste, unfortunately it is accompanied by a rather non pleasant bitter aftertaste. This fades slightly as the beer warms. Bitterness and high carbonation is what stands out most to me in the mouthfeel. Drinkability wise I expected this to be less bitter, I guess thats why I keep on getting it. Overall its not bad, but I do think there are better Chocolate Stouts out there.
