Very thick dark pour, almost syrupy. Lasting dark tan head with little lacing. The chocolate is the dominant factor on the nose. It's a bit of a dark chocolate, but a little sweet milk chocolate as well. A little bit of caramel as well. On the tongue, a little bit of alcohol upfront, and a bit of coffee as well. The chocolate comes in on the way down, but it's mostly a dark chocolate. The bitterness comes in the back with a bit of a smoky flavor as well. I taste a bit of vanilla as the beer warms a little. A very full bodied beer, obviously. This is my first time having this and my third Rogue beer. So far, they're 3-for-3. Really good beer. I'll get it again, but probably not often, at its price point.

750 ML bottle poured into a large mug.

Look: Gorgeous, dark and imposing. Pure black in color. The head pours three fingers, and is toffee brown, thick and foamy.

Smell: Dark chocolate is in the forefront, with notes of coffee and oak following.

Taste: Delicious. Semisweet dark chocolate and rich roasted malt, with smoky, Arabica coffee rushing in as it sits on the palate. The aftertaste is toasted marshmallow. Everything about this is good.

Mouthfeel: Thick and smooth, as befits a stout.

Overall: An amazing dessert beer, one I'll look forward to having again when I have a spare 14 bucks sitting around.

Into a snifter, the pour shows a nice jet black color in its initial appearance. The head had a tan one finger foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace leaving some light lacing here and there. The smell has a rich sticky sweet dark chocolate and allows a nice sweet milk chocolate coming in heavy. After the chocolates, a light roasty coffee comes in with a subtle vanilla which then is followed by a super light caramel aroma. The taste took all of these flavors and combined extremely nicely. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a sticky chocolate aftertaste and finish. Overall, this was a pretty good Double Stout I’d have again.

This one I've been looking to try and find for awhile and I finally got my hands on one. For a 22 oz. it was $11.99 so I expected a really solid beer.

Pours a black color. Smells heavy chocolate, hence the double chocolate flavor. A little hint of coffee. Tastes very smooth, very creamy. I absolutely enjoyed it, especially at 9% abv. A great dessert beer. Wish it wasn't so expensive but that's Rogue, hence why I didn't think it was 10/10. Other than that it was everything I expected.

L - Deep black with a silky tan head that leaves behind a good amount of lacing.
S - Rich chocolate with sweet roasted malt
T - Decadent. Chocolate throughout paired nicely with sweet roasted malt. A mild alcohol presence on the back end but barely noticeable. Some hops present but in my opinion barely noticeable - this one is all about the chocolate and malt.
F - Medium to full bodied with a mild amount of carbonation - smooth, but not as silky smooth as others in this category such as Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout.
O - This is a fantastic chocolate stout. Rich chocolate flavors with roasted malt and a mild hop and alcohol presence. Definitely a dessert beer but a great beer nonetheless.
