I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste roasted malt, coffee. I thought this wasn't very good (don't like coffee). I wouldn't drink this again.

Flavor - bitter charred smokey wood mixed with bitter chocolate.
Palate - medium mouthfeel and has oily texture. Finish is dry and very bitter.
Overall - not impressed by this beer. Extremely bitter and not much good flavor.

Now this is a quality brew. Smells, looks, and tastes like an imperial stout. If you poured this blind and told me it was a stout I would have no problem believing it. I’m not going to complain about it being miscategorized, just going to sit back and sip the delicious goodness. The most beautiful creamy and velvety mouthfeel I’ve had in any beer. Super deep roasty flavors. Great job Rogue.

On tap at Rogue. Pours dark brown with a small head. Has an earthy, almost metallic scent. Flavors are bread, malt, and soil. Interesting but not great.

Black with a foamy dark brown head and no lacing. Aroma of smoked malts, chocolate, yeasts, floral hops and roasted barley. Likewise with the flavor but way more roasty forward. Mild carbonation and a light body; Easy to drink. Pretty good!

Impeccable offering from Rogue Farms. The malt and hop balance in this one is ideal for my personal preferences. I loved the flavor, texture, and snap hop finish. Can’t wait to try again.

bottle:Clear deep black pour with a short quickly dissipating light brown head and very little lacing. Light roasty aroma. Flavor of dark chocolate and a touch of molasses. Some hoppy bitterness but quite restrained. Thin texture but, after all, it is a lager. Mildly smokey finish. Tasty above normal brew that is worth the price.

Aroma is a rich maltiness with roastiness. Some smokiness and fig notes aswell. Taste is a very sweet and rich maltiness that finishes with a bitter and roastiness. Body is very dark with a light brown head thst retains reasonably. The complex body finishes slightly shallow.
