    Pros: Incredibly complex stout
    Cons: None

    Summary: The Rogue Ales Brewing Company of Portland, Oregon, likes to think that there is a little Rogue in all of us. I know for a fact there’s a little Rogue in me right now. Twenty-two ounces to be precise. That is because I just finished downing a bomber of ... read more

    Pros: Solid flavor profile, low price, widely available.
    Cons: A little on the chalky side.

    Summary: I have said it before and I will say it again, I am a fan of stouts.  Those roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate flavors hit my palate just right and have me begging for more.  Even as my palate has matured and my tastes have shifted to ... read more

    Pros: great tasting ale at a great price.
    Cons: uninspired packaging

    Summary: I’ve seen the 22-oz bomber bottle of various Rogue ales in my favorite liquor superstore for quite some time, but I’ve never been intrigued. I guess the packaging looked a little cheesy, maybe looking for a hip sort of vibe. I noticed some cutesy ... read more

  • A Pair of Stocks, You Rogue!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Big roast barley flavor with coffee, chocolate, and everything luscious
    Cons: Sometimes hard to find

    Summary: Rogue has always been the kind of brewery that marches to the beat of its own drummer. Their beers are distinctively unique, but always a real treat to anyone who really loves great beer. I've had more than my fair share of Rogue ales over ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: this is a phenomenal product
    Cons: expensive

    Summary: Rogue brewery has some of the best beers in the nation. Their Shakespeare Stout has a complex flavor. The flavor makes Guiness seem like water. By far the best stout i have ever tried. The brewery in Newport, Oregon is where the gods of beer-brewing ... read more

    Pros: Flavors, complexity, start to finish delicious
    Cons: None

    Summary: Luckily i live in the northwest and have unlimited access to this beer, I love this stout! One of the richest and most complex of beers brewed to perfection, I don't recommend drinking this if your not a fan of dark, tasty beers...meals in a ... read more

    Feb 26, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: World Beer Championships winner... and it smells great!
    Cons: The bitter bite that grabs my throat and won't let go.

    Summary: If there's one thing that Teykaerts kept pestering me about, it was whether or not I cracked into my stock of Rogue Shakespeare Stout. Finally, sometime in January I told him I would make the effort and enjoy my Bomber Bottle (22oz) while taking ... read more

  • A Stout Worthy of the Great Bard

    Feb 22, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Creamy, complex stout
    Cons: none spring to mind

    Summary: At the risk of being redundant, I'm going to extol the virtues of Rogue Ales. This world class Oregon Brewery has been providing peak beer moments since 1988. One of my personal favorites among Rogue beers is the infamous Shakespeare ... read more

  • To drink or not to drink, that is irrelevant

    Dec 18, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great complex mix of flavors and aroma
    Cons: There aren't any

    Summary: In the primitive days of horse and cart distribution there were hundreds of breweries across the USA. However, following prohibition, and the invention of refrigerated trucks and preservatives, beer became a global, mass-market industry. Many smaller ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Creamy, complex beer.
    Cons: Pricey and not for everyone's taste.

    Summary: “To drink or not to drink?”, that is the question you must ask yourself when presented with Rogue’s Shakespeare Stout. The Rogue Brewery is located in Newport Oregon and according to the company’s Web site produces twenty-five ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Rich, Flavorful, Creamy
    Cons: Filling!

    Summary: Stout is one of my favorite styles of beer. I enjoy most all types of stouts. I like dry varieties, sweet stouts, oatmeal stouts, cream stouts, and just about any other beer that has the stout name. Rogue Shakespeare Stout is brewed by the folks at Rogue ... read more

    Pros: Spectacular combo of chocolate malt and dry finish
    Cons: availability

    Summary: Don't worry folks, my horrible title is a far as my descent into flowery poetry goes. In case you did recognize it, that is "humorous" adjustment to a littel poem that I wrote a few years back. You have probably read it, although I published ... read more

  • Knightly flavors

    Sep 22, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Smooth - flavorful - non chalky
    Cons: Larger bottle - a little more costly

    Summary: Okay, lets first state that Stouts and other dark beers are not for everyone. However, this beer by Rogue Brewing Company has surpassed nearly all others worldwide in smoothness, texture and flavor. The complexity is there, but not ... read more

  • A nice, stout example of a different type

    Sep 3, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice flavors, a bit different than your standard stout
    Cons: It's not Guinness, but still a good choice nonetheless!

    Summary: It would be rather unfair of me to compare Rogue Shakespeare Stout with Guinness, but I am afraid that I am going to have to, since they are both stouts, and pretty much representative of the brews from their categories (dry stout ... read more

    Pros: Rich well balanced stout

  • A hopheads stout

    Mar 4, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Unique, full bodied, very hoppy
    Cons: Costs a little more

    Summary: This is not what I would consider your traditional stout beer in any sense of the word. Rouge has done something that most stout breweries don't do, they have added a lot of hops to give it a more complex profile and a truly unique taste. ... read more

  • A Flowery Stout?

    Feb 26, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Creative and full of tasty hop flavor.
    Cons: Hops eventually completely subdue any sweet malty flavor.

    Summary: Rogue takes radical license with its Shakespeare Stout. Just about everything about this beer is unusual, and that's the beer's strength. This beer earns its place as a classic brew because it takes the standards and completely reworks then into its ... read more

    Pros: Rich * Robust * Deep, Dark, and Chocolatey
    Cons: Difficult to find in certain areas of the country

    Summary: Rogue Shakespeare Stout was my first foray into the world of dark beers. I was intrigued and entranced almost immediately. My husband slowly poured it into a pilsner, and the dark (almost black) stout greeted me with a deep, dark aroma and a rich tan ... read more

    Pros: Big, strong, black, smooth, yummy.
    Cons: Not for wimps.

    Summary: This beer has absolutely everything. If you love Guinness, give it a try. You may become a devotee. It is an acquired taste, but it is worth acquiring. High in alcohol, big in malty flavor, filled with burnt grain flavor, made smooth with the use of ... read more
