Brew Review: Shakespeare Stout

Shakespeare Stout (Rogue Brewery, Oregon)
Appearance (0 to 4 stars): 4.0
Aroma: 3.5
Flavor: 2.5
Texture: 3.5
Drinkability: 3.0

Overall score: 16.5 / 20.0

Cost: $5.29, big bottle.
On the label:
Summary: Strangely enough, though I prefer stouts to lagers, it is the Killian lager from Rogue that I like so much, and this Shakespeare Stout that was somewhat weaker. It is thick, it is dark as shoyu, but lacks the richness and velvety texture that I like. Oh, it's smooth, but just not a good stout. I guess I've been spoiled by better.
