Eight different malts, including Great Western 2-Row, Vienna, Crystal 60 and 150, Briess Midnight Wheat, Black Prinz and Weyermann Carafa II, comprise this incredibly complex grain bill, leading to an equally complex beer, despite the simple hop bill of Perle & Crystal. Big in body and dark malt flavor, the moderate hop schedule lets all that malt complexity shine through. Rogue on!

Newport, Or - on tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour, off white head, nice thick lacing. Aroma has some sweet molasses accents, a hint of sweet cherries. Flavor is full bodied with plenty of dates, chocolate and licorice to go around. Nice sticky mouthfeel. Best of the bunch on my visit to Rogue.

Tap @ OBF 2012. Very complex beer, bit cidery (I think boozy is the correct term) - which I dont like. Still excellent overall.

Tap @ Rogue, Eugene. Nice head with excellent duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are rich roast malt, lots of licorice, caramel, nuts and hops. Nice dry finish.

Tap at OBF. Pours very dark with a slight beige head. Aroma suggests dark fruit with a little smoke. Med body. Flavor is dark fruit, fairly malty, and there seems a hint of sodium. Nice. Fits the style.
