Oh, daddy. What a lovely beer. There’s an aroma of boiled lollies, coffee, chocolate and sherbet. The taste is more of the same, with a little more hops s you’d expect. Perhaps a tad short on the palate but otherwise more than pleasant.

I was hoping for more from this one. Rogue is usually a good go-to for me for any style but this sort of let me down. Not bad by any means but not great. It pours a very dark brown with dark red highlights and a foamy light tan head. Caramel, whole wheat bread and burnt toffee followed by herbal and spicy hops comprise the nose. This starts off pretty smooth, very malt forward and even a bit sweet but then transitions to a very bitter, unbalanced feeling, borderline astringent flavour. I love this style of beer but if it weren’t for the strong malt backbone this might be too much hop-wise. Mid-soft carbonation with a medium body that is very lightly oily. Increasingly bitter finishes starts with dark coffee and ends with raw cocoa.
