There is not one bad thing to say about this beer. Great color - both body and head. Great flavor - nice and hoppy but rich and warm. Aroma was really pleasant, too. Can't say enough about that John Maier and his beers.

A very strong, and great tasting Black IPA. Rogue really does an excellent job with every beer they make. They are quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries ever.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Rated on 7-19-2008 (Flip-top bottle) This beer forms a medium sized beige head with a short retention, hazy reddish brown body, good amount of lacing, and fast rising carbonation. The Aroma is chocolate malt, sweet and very hoppy. The Taste is chocolate malt, alcohol, hops, and harsh tasting. This beer has a short dry finish. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this is a beer that I cannot drink a lot of at any one time due to the somewhat harsh taste. I do recommend trying it.

Rogue Ales - Brewerís on the Bay. From notes. A winter warmer strong ale. Hopped over the top! (106.9 IBU). Aftertaste never quits. Europeans would be shocked; Northwesterners might go into shock. Love this stuff.

THIS IS IN THE COMMEMORATIVE, SWING-TOP BOTTLE. 2008. STRONG ALE... NOT BLACK IPA. Drank to honor the passing of my own dog. R.I.P, Jet (2/18/2001-9/17/2011). Dark, opaque and caramel. Toffee, raisins and plum in the nose. Dark sugar and dark fruit. Substantial mouthfeel.More caramel, toffee and black (?) coffee. Slight bitter finish with residual sweetnesson lips. Something mildly stout-like. A little nutty. Paired with Port Chester and Hudson Red Cheese from American Cheese in West Sayville, NY.

Hops and chocolate aroma, dark brown, off white head. Tastes of hops, malt and chocolate. Good balance, medium bodied, bitter and crisp. Beginning is malty , middle is more on the chocolate, finishes orange, earthy and bitter. Tasty beer, would drink again.

Donít know what happened to my review...a 2 year old bottle consumed about 2 months ago. Kind of resembles an American Strong Ale or Barley Wine more than a Black IPA at this point. Thereís a lingering pine hop quality to it but it mostly sits against a background of sweet caramel malts. This was pretty good and actually much better than the Old Crusty that I had recently which was of similar age.

Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of caramel, resiny, earthy. Tastes bitter and caramelly with some sweet cloying notes on the finish.

Dirty brown body with a small tan head. Nose is toffee, dark fruit, cookie dough and light citrus. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter taste with iced tea, caramel, light pine and citrus hops, a touch of roast. Medium body is very soft with light carbonation.
