3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber color with a minimal head. Malt forward with some green bell pepper on the nose. Average carbonation and medium-body. Taste is similar with a smoked taste and some mild hop bitterness with the pepper just kind of there. It doesn’t pack much of a punch as far as heat goes. Dry peppery finish.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smokey flavor. Subtle gentle jalapeno. Crisp. Malty, but not sweet. This would go great with jalapeno crunchers. Pretty tasty.

Draught at CBM. Fun green pepper mouthfeel and smokey notes but the body is quite heavy, wouldn’t drink a full pint for sure. Good for meaty food pairing.

Não era exatamente o que esperava, mas até que foi uma boa experiência. Pensava em algo mais picante e surpreendente.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On the nose: nothing special but give it a few inhales and you’ll feel the pepper. Initial palate: tastes like novacaine. After a few mins tastes like an overhyped burrito from Chipotle. On the ropes with this, it’s dissapointing compared to the Sriracha beer they have. Overall not a winner

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Pours a burnt amber color with little head. Aroma is smoke, dried peppers. Taste is a little thin but a nice warming smoke / chipotle on the finish. Very nice with pork fajita stir fry.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle (William K Kurvi, Helsinki)
Smells old. No BB. Oxidised, but I don’t mind that at all. Mild sweet smokedness. Just in the late finish there’s some nice deeply roasted smoked chilli pepper. However no heat. Very simple but highly drinkable ale. Carbonation a bit high, but drinkability high. The spine of old books. More dusty dry chipotle later.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, 0.65 l - BB info not found, 20150426) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and almost white. Aroma had malts, cardboard and bell pepper. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, smoke, sweetness, cardboard and bitterness. Aftertaste had burning sense from chilli and oxidized malts and low bitternes. Not an impressive brew at this point of ageing and I suppose it weren’t much better while fresher either.

It’s ok. Really just a bit of smoke and a warming aftertaste. As much as a smoked ale as anything. Kind of thin.

Interesting. A solid ale as you’d expect from Rogue with mildish hops and caramel and vanilla from the malt but a very distinct spicy heat that kicks in late on. Happy to have tried but I’ll stick to more traditional tastes in my beer.
