2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light fragrance of flowers. The taste is very bitter and fruity. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth a weak moment. For bitter beer for me to like it. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Pours brown. Aroma of red licorice, brown sugar, malt, molasses: nice. Tastes of the same: smooth and sweet. Lingering bittersweet aftertaste. Flavourful yet sessionable.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2015 I could tell you about the aroma, the appearance the palate. But I wont waste your time: This was simply, the most delicious beer I have had the pleasure of drinking in a very, very long time. If I had the choice, I would drink nothing else. Spectacular work Rogue.

Pours a caramel color. Aroma is very sweet- caramel and toffee. Taste contains more bitter or dry elements than I would expect based on the coloration and taste, and I think that’s a good thing. Hops upfront quickly melt into a Werther’s original candy type taste that is sweet, but not overly sweet. I guess I’m a little picky in some respects for a guy who’ll drink adjunct lagers when finances dictate- I enjoy some malty beers, but when they taste a little too much like candy, that can be a turn-off, and when they get a little too roasted and burnt, that can be a turn-off. This definitely is not the latter. It has some aspects of the former, but skirts the line nicely with the upfront hoppiness and not overdoing it on the backend sweetness despite the base backend flavor being similar to beers that cross the line. I would say a good beer, but not spectacular. Nicely avoids some common pitfalls, but it’s aim isn’t to the side of the bock equation I’d aim for. I think I would raise my rating a lot if it were only relative to beers that smell and somewhat taste like candy. But in a world where not all beers do, just a solid beer (Which is nothing to sneeze at).
