Default Rogue Shakespeare Stout

Is there a finer stout on the market? While I like stouts, I've never put them on par with a good pale ale or IPA until I tried the Shakespear the other night.

It is now absolutely one of my favorite beers overall.

You only get so many calories in life. Enjoy every single one.

Yes there are better stouts. Not to put down Rogue's, which, while good i am not overly impressed.

Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout is better, IMO
Lion Stout is also better, IMO

don't get me wrong though i'd still rank it at about a 97/100...

Have you had their Mocha Porter yet, if you like the Shakespeare you'll love it.

A few months ago I ran out to get a bottle of Shakespeare Stout and drank it the following evening. I didn't like it very much. I do plan on giving it a second chance one day though.

Still to be honest, I think i'm finding that most rougue beers arent really blowing me away like people tell me they will.
Bottomline, I need to make more beer.

I had the shakespeare stout recently and I truly enjoyed it. I wish they would distribute it in six packs like the mocha porter or dead guy. I think its one of their better beers.
