Brew Review: Rogue Chocolate Stout

This weeks brew reviews features a fresh stout from Rogue, a brewery located in Newport, Oregon. Rogue Ales brewery was started back in 1988. They operate brewpubs in Oregon, Washington, and California and brew mostly craft beer. I had tried several Rogue beers in the past so I thought I’d give this one a chance, which ended up being a excellent decision.

Rogue Chocolate Stout:

ABV: 6.00%

Serving Type: Bottle

Appearance: Pitch black almost like a coca cola with a excellent brownish head that has decent lacing.

Smell: Chocolate, roast, slight hop bitterness, slight vanilla goodness

Taste: Creamy, almost milkshake like. A modest dose of chocolate up front. Not as much as you might think from the aroma. Mid palate has a pronounced smoke, pepper and woody/tobacco profile. Some bitter hoppiness in the finish.

Drinkability: Makes the mouth smile. Easy to drink and very enjoyable

Overall thoughts: A solid Amercan stout, one of the better chocolate stouts I have tried. There is a very pleasant flavor with just enough complexity. A very enticing aroma to bring you in. This is a chocolate explosion in a glass. You will truly enjoy this brew.

Freshness Rating: 8/10
