Nice earthy aroma. Dark cloudy amber, head laces the glass. Citrus hit with a nice malt then more hops. Crisp and clean. No Alaskan King Crab though this might be the brew to have with them.

Dark, cloudy amber color - almost brown. Aroma is caramel and citrus hops. Tastes the same plus chalk and cereal malt - crisp and refreshing. Grapefruit bitter finish. Very drinkable and enjoyable - could drink this all day.

HAd this at Coopers in PA. Bottle says ’Deadliest Ale’, but Rogues website calls it ’Northwest ale’. Rogue also calls this a ’india Red Ale’. either way it’s tasty. Deep reddish hue, hops are well balanced. I think this is more of a red ale than an IPA. give it a try if you can get your hands on it.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2009
Pours a dark, murky amber with with a tannish head. Aroma of hops and sweet malts. Flavor was hops right away. Earthy, citrus and bitter hops grab the palate only to be smoothed a bit by sweet caramel malts and even a bit doughy before the bitter finish. A bit heavy in the body, it might be tough to call this a session beer. Very enjoyable and delicious. Kudos to Rogue once again for a different and delicious offering.

Aurelius (4379) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2009
Nice, mellow, chalky, west coast PA aroma. Not clear, but not cloudy either, and it was odd how much sediment there was given the clarity. Tea colored, fluffy head that goes lacy. A dry, crackery-caramel take on a woody amber. Medium heavy hopping. Mouthfeel was chalky, and the finish broke towards grapefruit rind and hemp. In fact, exhaling after you’ve taken a swig reminded me of the grass fumes that used to waft through my high school. Medium, medium heavy body. Slightly warming on the backend. Very drinkable. MSL.

Draft at Capone’s. Pours orangy copper with haze and a clingy off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, hopcitrus, fruit. Tastes caramel malty, fruity, with backup hops that take a backseat somewhat to the malt and fruity notes. I’d love to share one of these with Sig Hansen while eating a dinner of opilio crab.

Pours deep coppery with ruby edges and a 3-finger or so khaki head. Nose is caramel malt, vinous fruit, hops, brown sugar. Tastes hoppy, malty, caramelly, with red wine grapes and some floral and fruity notes.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2009
In short: A heavy, caramelized amber ale with good amount of leafy hops. Good beer.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few weeks after purchase
The look: Cloudy light amber body topped by a small off-white head
In long: A solid caramelized malts backbone, just like I like it, smooth and without much residual sugar sensation. Good amount of leafy/earthy hops that dry out the beer and provide a medium bitterness. Well balanced. A “sticky” sensation in the finish with a tree sap flavour. Rather heavy and nourishing for the style, not something I could drink in large quantities, yet not something complex enough to be enjoyed in small quantities. Deadliest Ale? I’m still alive and well. But what doesn’t kill you can only make you drunker.

Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2009
(Bottle) Pours deep red with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is of citric (orange and grapefruit), earthy and apricot-like hops with a malty backbone of toast, light caramel and bread. The nose turns floral, as the beer gets warmer. A strange tone of leek is also notable. The flavour is medium hoppy and medium malty with tones of citrus, apricots, flowers, toast and bread. Light sweet and medium to heavily bitter with a dry finish. The mouthfeel is clean, creamy and soft. Perfect carbonation. Lingering, heavy bitter and resiny aftertaste. Medium bodied.
