From bottle labeled Beer No. 2. Deep almost black color. Aroma is citrusy pine hops and sweet chocolate. Taste is nectarine, grapefruit, pine, roasted coffee, and dark chocolate. Almost a pitted fruit note also. Finishes with a substantial cocoa nib and citrus hop aftertaste.

Hops and hops. A bit of choc. Slightly bitter but not overly. A medium body and not much flavor from the grains. Seems like hops in a beer nut good. Not horrible. It has good carb. Worth a try.

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
Amber-brown, thin head, very minty, citrusy, and a bit toasty, strong, sweet, bitter - there’s a lot of complexity and strong balance with this one. Delicious, a good stronger example.

Bought this as Beer No.2 from Fred Meyer..for $7.99..i feel cheated. This is Rogue style stuff. This better be f**kin good. Pours a nice black body and thick and creamy tan head. Nice. Nice plain herbal/floral hop aromas.. not much malt ..maybe some nuts and slight toast. Taste is were its at! Juicy,fruity,hoppy ,coffee,slight earthiness and ash. slight bitter-sour end. The palate is just fine..though it gets a little sticky in the end. OK beer. But still feel cheated $8 is too much for this..just a regular beer for most Oregon breweries..the extra $3 is not justified. Please 10 Barrel do not turn into Rogue MkII

22 from the Boise pub... Thanks Shawn and Jordan, truly appreciated. Shared with COOPMatt... Pours the expected black with a nice light khaki head... respectable retention and lacing.. Pithy citrus and pine melt almost immediately into a light roastiness/light residual maltiness.. bitterness moves pretty quickly to clear the maltiness out and back to a good piney hop flavor... light body given the 7% and supremely drinkable... I appreciate the respectable ABV, it makes me want another glass/bottle and doesn’t destroy palates the way many PNW CDAs do.. This one is a pretty big winner in my book... I searched for flaws and failed.

Bomber. Pours a dark brown color with a medium grey head. A char, smoke and fruity hoppy nose. The flavor is medium bitterness, cocoa, metal, roast, oranges, ash. Very smooth. Good.

On tap at the brewpub. Clear brown pour with an off white head. Nice pine and citrus hop notes. Mild aromas follow suit. Average body and mouthfeel.
