Rogue – Shakespeare Stout

Ah rogue, how I love thee. 

I don’t even remeber when I picked up the Shakespeare stout, its been in my tasting fridge for a long time. The copious amounts of harvest ales and pumpkin ales may have distracted me from a few darker ones waiting in the wings.
This one pours a deep, sensuous opaque dark brown to midnight black and has a nice roasty smell. This one is what you think of when you think of a great dark beer, tempting you from the bartop, poured just right. 
This one tastes like a stout is intended to taste. Smooth, roasty and thick enough to be hearty but not thick enough to be syrupy. It leaves a malty taste in your mouth after swallowing. 
This is a classically wonderful brew. This is yet another one that if you don’t think you like dark beers, you should allow it the opportunity to woo you. A winner all around. Go Rogue.

    Amen, Beer Babe…I stumbled upon the Rogue Brewery recently and had the pleasure of trying several of their offerings from the source. Shakespeare Stout really stood out…very, very nice.
