XS Imperial Stout Bottle to goblet. Look is Dark black, medium tan head. Thick look. Lasting lacing remains. Sudsy legs. Aroma is plum, blueberry raspberry, dark chocolate, just a tad weak (maybe just too cold). Taste is the same except stronger on the fruits, where the aroma is equal fruit and chocolate. Rum, whiskey booze like taste in the finish. Feel is full and and a little chewy."
Yum, Merry Christmas to me!

On tap at the Tap House Grill - Des Plaines, IL
A - dense creamy light brown head holds good retention atop a dark brown stout; thick lacing leaves rings down the glass
S - dark chocolate, roasted barley, creamed coffee
T - big and roasty with dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, roasted barley, earthy hops, tea leaf, caramel, oat, slight smoke, anise, and ash
M - full, creamy body, quite smooth, alcohol warming but not hot, finishes with bitter roast and hop lingering
O - very solid imperial stout. For some reason I don't buy Rogue much, but when I do its usually good.
