2/26/2010: Last night I took a beer inventory to see which beers I had that could be aged, and which could not. Well this bad boy fell under the not category so I decided to throw it into the fridge to share with Cara. Sidenote: I plan on popping open my first ever Abyss sometime soon.
Damnit why did it take me so long to try Rogue Chocolate stout, this stuff is awesome. Smell is a lot of sweet chocolate, and some hop presence. Taste is a perfect balance of chocolate and hops. What really makes this chocolate stout different from others, is that the chocolate is more on the sweet side than bitter. There is a nice dose of hops that balance the chocolate. I have been looking for a lighter bodied stout that had a lot of chocolate flavor, and this fits the bill. Awesome beer.
Picture of the day: I knew the japanese were weird, but not this weird. Whats up with this Dan? haha
