Pitch black in the glass, the aroma screams booze soaked prunes and malty goodness.

Product Reviews
  1. Roasty...
    Review by Mart

    Black with a nice tan head. Roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Nicely bitter. (Posted on 07/05/2017)

  2. Lovely beer
    Review by Beebo

    Quite classic stout. Moderately roasty - chocolatey, coffeeish. Oatmeal indeed does add an impression of smoothness in the texture. Otherwise medium-full body, medium carbonation. Mostly roasty malty, other characteristics are in the background. Good one. (Posted on 20/03/2017)

  3. Good one!
    Review by MH

    Dark brown color with tiny tan head. Aroma - Coffee, wood, oat, chocolate. Taste - Bitter, milk choc, coffee, r-malts, nuts. (Posted on 08/02/2017)

  4. Fizzy
    Review by dmukgr

    Too carbonated for my tastes. Taste wise it was bang average as well. (Posted on 09/01/2017)

  5. best oatmeal stout
    Review by christof

    This hit everything I look for in an oatmeal stout, dry and spicy, lovely thick head on brown to black body, malty, just top drawer beer. (Posted on 05/01/2017)

  6. Great stout
    Review by MH

    Pours dark brown-black with thick tan head and lacing. Nose of chocolate with some vanilla and pine notes. Bitterness upfront with pine notes; chocolate in the finish (Posted on 03/01/2017)

  7. Not bad...!
    Review by MH

    Nice enough. Thin grey/brown head. Bit of a coffee taste. Fizzier than the average stout. Ok, but I’ve had better. (Posted on 30/12/2016)

  10. Breakfast time
    Review by Iddy

    Pours black with a cocoa head. aroma is strong roasted malts & porridge. Taste is an earthy, roasted porridge flavour with honey. Lovely. (Posted on 09/12/2016)

  11. Decent porter
    Review by Birky

    nice and smooth but was perhaps expecting a little more (Posted on 06/12/2016)

  12. Really good!
    Review by mik

    Sweet and spicy. Not much chocolate character - this is definitely a dry, spicy stout.
    Only disappointment is the lack of depth in the finish. (Posted on 22/10/2016)

  13. Not bad
    Review by Ben

    Tastes as though the nuts roasted too long. Wanted some sweetness from the malt and didn't get it. (Posted on 29/07/2016)

  14. Top Stout!
    Review by simontomlinson

    Beige creamy head sat on a near black still body - looks fantastic.
    Malt, plum & alcohol aroma.
    Dull to the fore with big flavours of malts, dark chocolate & roast followed by a slightly bitter plum, grape & coffee finish.

  18. Tasty
    Review by Tim

    Pours like dark treacle, initially fairly sweet and smooth, then espresso and treacle, a little bitterness (Posted on 19/03/2016)

  19. Yummy
    Review by Johnny

    Aroma of coffee, chocolate, earth, oats, a bit vinous. Medium body. Oily. Dry taste with notes similar to the nose. Proper medium bitterness. Good

  20. Not alot to stout about
    Review by Blind_Drunk

    I did like this beer but I wouldn\'t say it was amazing or anything like that. It is a good solid stout which I am sure would please most stout lovers (Posted on 19/01/2016)

  21. A very good beer.
    Review by BJ 53

    Smooth, easy drinking oatmeal stout which disguises its strength very well. Quite moreish and well worth a try. (Posted on 15/01/2016)

  22. Yum yum yum
    Review by Nate

    This is a yummy one! Not as decadant as a breakfast stout, but getting there and very yummy. Great mouthfeel, coffee and choco notes and a malty finish. YUM! (Posted on 04/01/2016)

  23. Tasty
    Review by Llamaman

    A nice stout this one.
    Pours black as coal, with a head that collapses almost immediately to a lacy rim. Can\'t see much carbonation but felt a slight tingle on the tongue.

    Initial taste is spiciness (is there rye in the recipe?), followed by bitter coffee on the finish. Not much chocolate character - this is definitely a dry, spicy stout.
    Only (slight) disappointment is the lack of depth/variation in the finish - but this isn\'t a 9% monster so maybe that\'s expecting too much. (Posted on 20/12/2015)

  24. Nice enough - but nothing to rave about.
    Review by Whisky Socks

    Perhaps I received a bad bottle?!... I found Rogue Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout to be very mellow in taste and therefore quite boring. (Posted on 30/11/2015)

  25. great
    Review by irv

    lovely, dark stout (Posted on 08/11/2015)

  26. Wholesome stout with balance tones
    Review by Elliott.jh

    A lovely Oatmeal stout with silky cocoa notes that linger richly on the palate. one of the best oatmeal stouts ever...probably... (Posted on 10/08/2015)

  27. Tasty!
    Review by Nate

    A rich, full bodied stout with plenty of malt flavour, complimented by notes of choco & biscuit. A very nice drink from this American brewery.
    I did notice that the bottle doesn't have an alcohol percentage mark, but not a problem :) (Posted on 21/07/2015)

  28. really pleasing
    Review by dodge

    a super solid stout with all the nose and flavours one would expect. Missed the final star by a very slight lack of depth (Posted on 12/06/2015)

  29. Good but a little dissapointing
    Review by Abdyman

    A very nice oatmeal stout but I was expecting more from Rouge. Can't really complain though, still has great flavour and a very pleasant smoothness. (Posted on 09/06/2015)

  30. Buy first ask questions later!!
    Review by Edward

    Dark, delicious, brilliant beer :) (Posted on 30/05/2015)

  31. Ravashing Rogue
    Review by Mark

    Firt ever porter and my first beer from Rouge and it's a corker. Deep and dark with velvety chocolate flavours with a hint of toffee. (Posted on 14/05/2015)

  32. Award Winning Beer does not disappoint!
    Review by Wvari

    Roasted Malt, rich flavours of Coffee, Chocolate and a hint of a something sweeter, Caramel maybe or Toffee as a backdrop. This is a lovely stout. It won the World's Best Oatmeal Stout 2014 from the World Beer Awards and to give it credit I rated it a 5 so agree it is excellent. (Posted on 19/04/2015)

  33. The best stout ever
    Review by Rick c

    This stout was with out a doubt the best tasting beer Iv ever had and will be ordering plenty more. (Posted on 09/04/2015)

  34. No rogue beer
    Review by RachB

    Rogue by name but not by nature. This is one smooth, malty, chocolate laden stout. A real belter (Posted on 10/03/2015)

  35. A meal for a king
    Review by Jack Swans

    Has every characteristic a World class stout requires. Deserves a sonnet of it's own. Chocolate smooth mouthfeel, smokey notes. One for the Bard indeed. (Posted on 14/02/2015)

  36. First from Rogue
    Review by Stuart O

    This was my first beer from Rogue and you can't go wrong with an Oatmeal Stout. Nothing too heavy and most definitely drinkable. (Posted on 04/02/2015)

  37. Let it breathe!
    Review by Ay Pee Horne

    Cracking oatmeal stout. Slick, thick, chocolate mouth with a hearty malt backbone. Came to life after it had came up a few degrees. Immensely satisfying. Would definitely order again. (Posted on 25/11/2014)
