Had this one on tap at the Verdugo Bar.

Poured an almost opaque black color. You can barely see some brown tinges at the edge. Nice tan one inch thick head that left really nice lacing on the glass.

Nutty aroma, like roasted almonds.

Good bittersweet flavor of roasted chocolate malts. Almost no hop bitterness detected, most of the puckering bitterness was from the burnt flavors of the malts.

Thick bodied mouthfeel with a good bittersweet aftertaste that clung to the palate for a bit.

Good drinkability. Not too rich or high abv lets this one be a good choice all night long. While not exceptional, this is definitely one of the better beers I've had from Rogue.

Very dark black with a tan head that lasts and lasts. The smell is malt, chocolate and coffee. The first thing that you notice about the taste is how smooth it is. Nothing is overpowering, the hops and malt blend together to make something that is very balanced. A very great stout but I can't stop comparing it to Storm King. I know that it isn't in the same style but I can't stop comparing it to Storm King. Truly one of the best that I will go back for.
