Rogue Chocolate Stout Brewed By Rogue Ales - Newport, Oregon

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 Valentineís Day in 2001 in a twenty-two ounce bottle for the US market. The label features a Roguester (Sebbie Buhler) on the label.

Rogue Chocolate Stout is ebony in color with a rich creamy head. The mellow flavor of oats, chocolate malts and real chocolate are balanced perfectly with the right amount of hops for a bitter-sweet finish.

Great Western 2-Row, Crystal 135- 165, Chocolate & Rogue Micro Barley Farm DareTM & RiskTM Malts; Rogue Micro Hopyard Revolution & Rebel Hops, Rolled Oats, Roasted Barley, Natural Chocolate Flavoring, Free Range Coastal Waters & Pacman Yeast.   
 

    
Beer Review from Beer Advocate:
Review by Beer Advocate:
Jet black colour with a thick bubbly light brown two fingered head, sticks sporadically down the glass. Chocolaty aroma, reminiscent of powdered hot coco … it even goes further with hints of carob with a soft powdery sweetness. Roasted malts are there but restrained in the aroma. Big viscous crispness within the full body and medium carbonation. Big dark chocolate flavours with a dark fruitiness in the middle similar to black berries, maltiness is big but the roasted flavours are humble yet generous with a mild bitterness from the bite. The blend of roasted malts and chocolate flavour make for a bitter sweet flavour likened to baker chocolate. Hops are held to a minimum though are certainly present with earthy undertones that complement the roasted flavours.

As far as flavoured stouts go this is one of the best, very well balanced and quite drinkable for a brew with such a big body.
