Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Poured a deep amber with a large, lasting rocky head. Nose was floral, with some subdued malt character, indicative of dry hopping. Flavor was mostly hop bitterness, the underlying malt being well hidden, but not so unbalanced as to be unpleasant. Light mouthfeel, medium finish.

0o9i (438) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 30, 2004
Beautiful ruby color with offwhite, almost beige head that’s quite rocky. Thick, fair lacing left behind. Aroma is yeasty, alcoholic, heavily malty of caramel and honey, hops aroma is floral. Sweet front of caramel followed by a serious blast of bitter hops, pine, grapefruit skin and a lot of alcohol flavor; dry. Body is medium-full, foamy carbonation, watery finish, but very dry and makes your mouth water. Strong bitter flavor and kind of nice; not a session beer!

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2004
It's a little suspicious that this beer has been around for so long, but I've only seen it on our Minnesota shelves lately, post Sept. 11, 2001, bedecked with Uncle Sam and American flag and all. I don't doubt the integrity of their feelings, or pride, or sympathy, it's just..you know? A little too well-timed? Nice, creamy, well-maintained head, above a fully coppery/near violet color. Aroma is delicious, full of spices, cinnamon?, cloves?, dry fruit, sweet, flowery, ..a little coppery. Dazzling hop profile, but it mellows out a bit. Great, smooth finish. Much hoppier, darker, and tastier than so many other "amber ales" I've tasted "A portion of the proceeds go to charity..", says the label. Which charity, and why? Who cares, for the beer is good. But am I supposed to drink to support widows, or fight terrorism, or what? I'm confused....

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2004
On tap at Taco Mac: brown, very hoppy, malty, detected caramal and dark fruit.

heemer77 (5105) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 19, 2004
Very dark amber color. Small head and a little lacing. The aroma has soap and coffee. Pine and orange peel in the taste. This is too bitter. A little dissapointing for a Rogue.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2004
Pours a dark amber with a tan head. Has a somewhat of a coffee type of aroma. Taste is very well balanced with a definite hop presence. Mouthfeel is nice and full, leaves a hoppy bitter aftertaste. Overall, this is a decent beer but there's nothing about it that would make me want to buy it again.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 11, 2004
Almost brown color with thich tan head. Aroma of sweet oranges and bread. Malty and hoppy very well balanced out.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2004
Dark reddish-brown color with a creamy light beige head. The lacing is sticky and has the consistency of soap suds. Aroma of roasted malt, fruit and hops. Medium-bodied with an odd fruity/metallic flavoring that takes away from the malt and hops that would otherwise make this one of the better Ambers available. The finish contains malt, hops and a touch of coffee. Overall this beer is not as bold as many of the other beers in their line, but it is still worthwhile to try.

(Bottle) Pours a deep amber color with a medium-sized beige head. Has a coffee and grapefruit aroma. Flavor of hops, malt, and some citrus.

Nuffield (3711) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Clear deep amber/nutty color with good foaming head. Clean hop aroma, caramelly, pepper?, nuts?. Much distinguished caramel flavor, with dusty notes in the finish, almost metallic. Suprising malts, though no match for the hops. (on tap at Rogue tap house, Portland)
