Gorgeous, slightly hazy amber. Malt and honey on the nose. Thin to medium body and smooth. Malty malty malty, with just the kiss of the hops! Very drinkable, respectable brew. Nice.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2007 I didn’t peg this as a Maibock the first time I had it. Not much head or lacing, a little on the sweet side (although the Saaz give it a nice finish), with a thin to medium mouth feel. Not my favorite Rogue, but on the other hand it is easy to get here and is overall a nice brew.

Amber color, off white head. Sweet aroma offset by some hops. Sweet malt flavor with a kick of hops which id definitely typical for Rogue. Nice Maibock.

Amber color with a thick head. It has a decent flavor and pleasant aftertaste. Plus a cool skeleton guy on the bottle

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 Deep amber color with a nice creamy white head atop, although it doesn't stick around very long. Has sort of a burnt aroma to it, but it's far from unpleasant. The flavor is very nice, with a gentle underlying sweetness with a nice maibock hop bite to it. The aftertaste is gentle, with that same hop flavor. The mouthfeel is nice a silky which adds to this beer's enjoyment. Highly recommended!

very interesting. definitely on my list of coolest names with arrogant bastard, delirium nocturnum etc. I couldn't pick out all the flavors in this one, but I like it. murky dark honey color, and a slyly sweet flavor with a little hop bitterness in there.

Had this bottled in St. Charles, Illinois. Very hoppy, refreshingly bitter. Sweeter than most ales.

I had a 16 oz glass for this. It wouldn't fit. This thing foamed up like a rabid dog when I poured it in. Flavor wise it was a below average ale. I originally gave this a one for appearance but the bottle logo was worth something. Cloudy-looking. Medium brown in color.
