Rogue Chocolate Stout

It's movie night tonight and we (the group of people watching) just finished Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (2008). Taking a short break before starting Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (2010), I opened a bottle of Rogue Chocolate Stout.

I wrote: "Nice and... well... I have trouble describing this beer, but it tastes good. It has a slight black stout taste, but I don't detect any hint of chocolate. It's good." 11:01PM ET

Earlier in the evening I had some Heavy Seas Yule Tide.


This Rogue Chocolate Stout was malty, but it didn't taste like chocolate milk the way Boulder Beer Shake Chocolate Porter did.

After tasting the beer, I noted it had a pitch black color and a smelled like Nestle chocolate powder (i.e., malty). 12:27AM PT

The recipe for Rogue Chocolate Stout was created several years ago for export to Japan. The exported twelve ounce Chocolate Bear Beer bottle label is in Kanji and features a teddy bear with a pink heart on his belly. Chocolate Stout was released for Valentine’s Day in 2001 in a twenty-two ounce bottle for the US market. The label features a Rogue original, Sebbie Buhler.
