"Tonight we remember those who gave their blood to defend this country - HAIL THE VICTORIOUS DEAD!"

Poured from 12oz bottle into Stein glass. No bottling or freshness date.

L: Black as night. Half finger tan head recedes slowly into a ring.

S: Cocoa, chocolate, roasted malts of caramel and barley. Leafy and citrusy hops. Wonderful aroma.

T: What a wonderful beer. Rich cocoa and chocolate with a surprising note of peanuts. Leafy and citric hop notes stay around yet stay subtle. Wood smoke and sherry also make an appearance. Roasted caramel and barley are wonderful balancing. What a delectable stout.

F: Smooth creamy, medium bodied.

O: First from Rogue and I am NOT disappointed. Will be back for more.

Goodness, this is a bizarre one. A splash of saccharine sweetness blasts the tongue before it's washed away by this bizarre, almost indescribable bitterness, with pepper sprinkled in on the finish. Far, far from the worst of the type, but, honestly, the taste is almost identical to Rhinelander's Chocolate Bunny, with a bit of pepper sprinkled in. And Chocolate Bunny is cheaper!

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Overall, a great oatmeal stout.

Look: Blacky black black with brown head and sweet lacing that can't stop won't stop.
Smell: Citrusy from the hop presence. Dark and roasty, burnt. Like a tobacco pipe.
Taste: Roasted malts, burnt sugar, and ever-present hop bitterness.
Feel: Smooth and sparkly. Substantial, but not thick or chewy.

Black with thick, sorry, brown head that didn't last long.

Smells of roasted malts, coffee and hints of dark chocolate.

Tastes coffee and light smokey roasted malts. Fades to a dry and bitter finish with roasted malt and coffee linger and light smoke. Lighter side of medium body and medium, smooth carbonation
