Postmortem Brew Review
Deep, dark brown in color.
Chocolate and malt smell with nearly no scent of hops.
Luxurious creamy caramel color head that lasts and lasts.
Luscious clinging of foam from top to bottom of glass.
Full bodied, malt, oat & chocolate flavor.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
This blog post was done live at the first ever Beer Blogger's Conference, held in Boulder Colorado. 108 bloggers were in attendance, from over five hundred identified blogs. Luminaries of the craft beer world also attended to serve as presenters and keynote speakers for the event. A "speed round" of blogging was held by 12 brewers, each bringing an exemplary brew to blog. 12 beers, 12 blogging tables and 60 minutes were allotted in a fun, free-for-all session. 

Round #9

Sebbie Buhler
It was pure joy when I saw Sebbie Buhler approach the table with a bottle of Rogue Chocolate Stout. One of my favorites, Chocolate Stout is a crowd pleaser.  I have reviewed this one before, so you can read my thought on it here.

Sebbie spoke with enthusiasm as she passed the bottle to the bloggers at our table. For those of you that do not know, she is the woman depicted on the painted bottle label. Even her t-shirt let you know that she too, enjoys this brew. It is simply yummy.

Try some for yourself, and see if you agree.


  1. Yo Rick! Thanks for the shout out and review #2 of chocolate stout Almost a year after the first & i n the same month, so its a blue-review! I loved the live beer blogging at #BBC10 -- not sure who had the hardest job, me pouring & pitching to 11 tables of beer bloggers, or you blogging all those beers! Can't wait till next year in Oregon ~ Join the Rogue Nation and Rise Up!

  2. I am honored! Sebbie, you have made my day with your post. I too, cannot wait until #BBC11 in Portland when the brewers and bloggers will meet again. It should be a blast!

    See you then!
