One thought on “NEW RELEASE: Rogue Double Chocolate Stout”
I tried their regular chocolate stout & it was seriously lacking in chocolate taste. It did not even have a whiff of a chocolate smell. It tasted like a Guinness draught. Now I made a beer float with it by putting a scoop of vanilla ice cream & it tasted great. It’s a beer float kinda beer. Hopefully this double chocolate will taste like its advertised.
