Old Review

Had this at the Flying Saucer in Houston, Texas. Served in a 22oz bomber slightly (ever so slightly) chilled. Poured into a tumbler.

A: Poured out a nice dark brown, almost black. Good sized head that remained for majority of the serving.

S: Rich chocolate and malt. Exactly what was expected.

T: This beer lives up to its name because chocolate rules this beer. Malt is there with a bit of coffee, but the chocolate takes center stage and dominates this brew.

M: Nice, smooth and creamy.

D: I was at a Flying Saucer with a plethora of choices in front of me, and I still wanted another of these. This is a great brew, but is very rich.

You get what you buy here. It is a great beer that does not hide from what it is named. Fantastic.

Pours a dark black, a bit syrupy looking. Nice thick brown pillowy head, that reduces down to a creamy film. Lacing clings to the glass. Impressive.

Smells awesome! Dark, bitter chocolate, toasty malts. This makes my mouth water...

Wow, definitely chocolate dominance in taste, followed more subtly by coffee. The chocolate flavors vary from sweet to bitter sweet. Dark fruits in the aftertaste. This Stout is nicely balanced in flavor.

Smooth and creamy, medium bodied. Very slight dryness to it. Carbonation is just right.

I could have several of these! Very pleasant to drink, nice on a cold Sunday such as today.

22oz. Bomber
Health Mart

Finally getting around to trying this. It's been on my list to pick up many times but I always seem to pass it by, since it's always available, in favor of seasonals or special releases. Poured black with a big 3 finger brown, creamy, ruddy head. I can't see a thing through this beer. Leaves spotty lacing throughout the entire drink.

This stuff smells amazing. Big notes of chocolate and cream. Mildly roasted barley and a small hint of coffe beans. Smells like dessert in a bottle. Fantastic.

Flavor has all the qualities of the aroma with a little extra. Starts off with the creamy milk chocolate. Roasted malts and coffee grounds come through mid-palate as the chocolate starts to fall back. On the swallow there's a mild hop spiciness and coffee ground bitterness.

Medium bodied and somewhat creamy. Lively in the back of the throat. My only complaint, and it's a very small one, is the mouthfeel could stand to be a little more creamy. Still very nice though.

This chocolate stout is an easy one to put back. Wonderful flavor and aromas make it a pleasure to drink.

I'm surprised at how good this stout really is. I wasn't sure if it could live to the hype or not. I wish I would have picked this up sooner. Another great beer from Rogue.

*Uploading my old reviews, this one has a review date of: 1-24-08. If I can acquire the beer again I will re-review it*

Pours a dark chocolate color with a good inch of foam.

Milk chocolate and cocoa upfront with a hint of chocolate malts and oats in the background. A few notes of hops balance out the sweetness quite well. I’m also detecting some faint aromas of mint and oatmeal cookies. As it warms up the chocolate dominates even more and it smells like Nestle Quick.

The taste is a little bitterer than I expected. Dark, bitter chocolate with a dry cocoa aftertaste. A little minty as well and quite a lot of roasted barley. Some hoppy bitterness in the middle and end of the palate. Earthy finish.

Mouthfeel is just a tad too thin for my liking and too carbonated. It’s a good chocolate stout but I was expecting a little more from this one.

A- Creamy brown head over a dark brown/black body, no light gets through this beer. Head has tiny bubbles and leaves a light lacing on the sides of the glass.

S - Smell at first is roasted malt, but as the beer warms the chocolate starts to come through.

T - bitter chocolate and roasted malt. Chocolate stands out more in this one than any chocolate stout I've tried.

M - very creamy on the tongue. Smooth.

D - easy to drink. could easily have a few of these in one sitting.

22 oz bomber. Poured into a Delrium tulip.

A: Black. Opaque. Really opaque-ly black. 2 fingers of mocha-colored head that fades down to a sheet of bubbles, leaving a solid film of lace.

S: Semi-sweet baker's chocolate. Can't smell much else.

T: Roasty. Big hit of bitter-sweet chocolate. A drying hop astringency at the end.

M: A bit of a fake-out here. Starts big with all the roastiness, but peters out pretty quickly. The hop bitterness in the end cuts the mouthfeel down sharply.

D: It's good, but not blowing up my skirts. I think I liked the Hazelnut Nectar a bit more.

Poured from bomber into snifter.

A - Pours jet black. No light getting through this one. What little head pours is gone in an instant.

S - Wow, chocolate! Bakers chocolate big time on the nose. Maybe slight fruit and coffee.

T - Bitter chocolate. Almost like having a milkshake with a bit of a coffee bitterness. Wonderful.

M - Carbonation has a bit of a bite to it, but impede enjoyment whatsoever. Nice and thick.

D - This beer is the ultimate after dinner beer. You could probably even pour it over ice cream. Excellent.

Starting to try out the stouts a bit more. This one was really good. I ayy need to delve into these a bit more. Pours a ridiculously dark brown. Nice foam. Faded pretty quick but could have been my cup. The smell was great. The taste i am still getting used to but it was still really good.
