Rogue "Chocolate Stout"
Rogue Ales - Newport, Oregon USA
Stout (ABV 6.3%) (IBU 69)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]


Rating: 4.1/5.0

Aroma: 9/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a very dark muddy brown almost black with an average (1-2 finger) medium brown rocky head that receded steadily, down to a thin film with a large collar and had fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was loaded with chocolate right up front along with some burnt malts, a light resin hop and a doughy yeast and had notes of coffee, dark chocolate and a mild nutty presence.

Taste was bitter sweet and malty with a note of dark chocolate in the beginning, and then became moderately bitter with a bold dose of coffee and yes more bitter chocolate towards the finish. The flavor hung around for quite a long time after the swallow, with a very bitter mocha coffee taste left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was full in body with a dry, oily texture and a nice soft carbonation.

Overall and simply put, this brew is a Chocoholics dream and I am hooked...
