rogue’s shakespeare stout

April 1, 2009

Today, I tried a bottle of Rogue’s Shakespeare Stout that I picked up at the corner store, which, I have discovered, has a pretty impressive selection of beer.

Overall, this beer was slightly bitter with hints of dark chocolate and toasted malt, but unlike the last few beers I have tried (Sam Smith’s Oatmeal Stout and Ninkasi’s Believer Double Red), the hops definitely stood out a bit more this time.

The flavours were crisp and earthy, but not as well-blended as I would have liked. It also had a bitter, semi-dry finish. Nevertheless, it was highly drinkable and surprisingly smooth.

I would definitely recommend this to people who like to sip dark, slightly bitter beers with a touch of sweetness.
