Draft. Dark brown, nearly black, with a one finger tan head. The aroma is nice, very chocolatey with roast and coffee notes. The flavor is also great, with lots of chocolate without too much sweetness, coffee, roast, and nuts. Medium-bodied with a somewhat smooth mouthfeel. One of the better beers Ive had from Iron Hill in recent memories - this is legit.

Draft at Newark. Opaque black body with no head. Roasty coffee aroma. Strong carbonation, chocolate, and alcohol dominate the flavor. Good stuff.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - DEC 1, 2010
On tap at Newark brewpub. Poured a dense cola black color with a two finger tan head. The aroma was deep roasted malts with coffee and smokiness. Flavor was roast malt, chocolate, coffee, nutty and lightly smokey. A mild bittering hoppiness came through in the finish. Medium bodied and rather light on the palate.

Flavor was chocolate, coffee, cocoa, licorice, smokey, faint chalk, dry dark fruits in the finish, a touch dry (faint acidity) in the finish. Mouthfeel was full, nicely done.

20100830 Nitrogen tap at Newark. It took the bartender two glasses to get one beer out of this as she battled copious foam, however the end result was a lovely pour of darkest brown beer beneath gobs of cascading brown froth. Aroma is interestingly beany and sweet, almost like a stouty fudge, with mild peaty hops, prune, and some coffee. Actually reminds me quite a bit of perkunos and Im wondering if maybe I should call this one a Baltic rather than FXS...? Sticky sweet on the palate but not at all cloying, good backbone of earthy grain and hops, very low bitterness. Pretty lithe across the palate, too, despite the nitro pour. Not usually my favored style, but seems nicely executed.
