Rogue Ales & Spirits Double Chocolate Stout

“The chocolate bar flavor hits first but then reveals that it’s bittersweet chocolate in disguise. The big, oily roast malt and assertive bitterness belie the sweetness of the aroma. There is a fair amount of sweetness, but it’s almost subliminal. Nice coffee notes. Hint of burnt sugar/toasted marshmallow. Sweetness fades into a moderate bitterness with a bit of acidity. A dry roasty astringency lingers in the finish keeping it from being cloying.”
