Aurelius (4178) - 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 (6022) - 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 (3005) - 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.

I really enjoyed this beer - 22oz. bomber. It is quite hard to find a product in Connecticut that is not an IPA or a unipressive pale ale. This had a bit of citrus and hops and a good bitter flavor. I could use it as a session beer and would welcome a six pack in my fridge any time.

Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors - 22 oz bomber. Dark copper pour, sticky white head, nice lacing. Sprucy aroma with hints of mint. Nice bitter flavor with some pronounce citrusy notes, caramel, hint of nuttiness and some underlying earthiness.Thickish, sticky mouthfeel. Been a while since I had a new Rogue - surprised this is not a re-label although it tastes very similar to many other Rogue offerings. Very enjoyable.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 10, 2009
22oz bomber courtesy of SirChugsaLot poured into a tulip. Pours a deep, clear reddish amber with a massive creamy off-white head that shows good lacing and retention. The aroma is big on earthy hops and malts along with a healthy dose of grapefruit. There is also some caramel malts in the nose, but it smells a good bit like an IPA. As it is, it’s a big hoppy nose for an amber. The taste follows the aroma and probably has a little more caramel malts that the aroma suggested. The hops are definitely in there though and are especially evident with an earthy hop bitterness lingering through the finish. It taste like a Rogue beer for sure, and a very good one. The mouthfeel is pretty full-bodied for an amber with the sticky hops on the palate that build up after each sip. There is plenty of carbonation as well. This is one of the better Rogue beers I’ve tasted and, while it is reminiscent of some of their other brews, it’s extremely drinkable.
