429. Rogue Shakespeare Stout

I purchased a bottle of Rogue Shakespeare Stout tonight along with a few other beers tonight. I chilled this and served it in my NERAX pint glass.

The bottle says this:
Ebony in color with a rich creamy head, an earthy flavor that comes from oats, and a mellow chocolate aftertaste.
