Brew Review: Rogue Brewing's Chocolate Stout as Consumed at the Mellow Mushroom

"It tastes like Chocolate World," she said referring to Rogue Brewing's Chocolate Stout. Not having been there ourselves, we asked our dining companion to elaborate on the Pennsylvania-based chocolate theme park that (apparently) takes one on a delicious journey from growing cacao through to the consumption of a delicious chocolate bar. We discussed this over some interesting take on pizza (baked potato pizza with bacon and ranch, anyone) and a seemingly never-ending supply of Rogue brew at Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers, a new restaurant opening up this month in North Phoenix.

We tried a lot of Rogue's catalogue that night. Some were familiar favorites like the Juniper Pale Ale and Dead Guy Ale, but it was the Chocolate Stout that we kept coming back to.

See why and check out a few more photos from Mellow Mushroom's pre-opening media event after the jump.
