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

As I pour a 22 oz. bottle into a pint glass, a 1-2" light brown head appears atop an opaque black beer.... Under the brightest light, you can see the slightest tint of brown around the edges.... The head dissipates quickly with minimal retention, but leaves decent lacing.

I take a whiff and get (but of course) super dominant chocolate notes with some toasted malts and the slightest bit of nuttiness.

The taste is very similar to the nose.... Mostly chocolate with a bit of coffee, toasted malts and nuts.... A little bit of oats in there, too.

This is a medium-to-full-bodied brew that is perfectly carbonated.... Very smooth and creamy going down with a chocolatey aftertaste that lingers awhile.

Overall, I love this brew.... One of the best flavored stouts I've ever had.... Leave it to Rogue, which is amongst my top 10 favorite brewers in America, to master a perfectly balanced chocolate stout in every way imaginable.... Once again, they cease to amaze.

22 oz bomber pours a near opaque black with a fair amount of floaties, and more than adequate tan head and lacing. Aroma reminds me a lot of Whoppers (hmm, chocolate covered malted milk ball - makes sense). Taste is chocolately, with faint coffee and smoke flavors. Mouthfeel is creamy smooth - this almost drinks too fast. I'm usually a bit of a purist when it comes to flavored beers but this one is very well done!
