COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rogue Fresh Roast is made with Rogue Farms barley fresh roasted at the brewery. The barley is taken directly out of the roaster and rushed 273 feet over to the brew kettle. We don’t think it gets much fresher than that, and we know you’ll taste the difference.

marcus (7142) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 12, 2015

Cybercat (3770) - Georgia, USA - APR 11, 2015
Pours opaque sable with a thick and rather persistent tan head. Roast malt dominates the aroma while sharing the stage with earthy, fresh malt, and subtle woody hop notes. Flavor is mainly malt, both fresh and roasted; hoppy and earthy hints make themselves known. Texture is fairly firm, if none too fizzy. Nothing like a fresh roast!

Franckg (291) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2015
Arômes de chocolat, noix grillée, anis, bois, écorce d’orange. En bouche, chocolat au lait, noisettes, céréales, malt rôtie. Un peu de zeste d’orange. Texture plutôt légère. Corps moyennement rond et crémeux. Bonne effervescence. Le goût se compare plus à une oatmeal stout qu’une brown ale

PorterPounder (5933) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2015
Athens, Ga. - Five Points Bottle Shop - Atlanta Hwy - 22 oz bomber. Deep, dark brown pour, initial off-white head that fades after a while. Aroma has some roasted coffee accents, a bit of topsoil. Flavor is bold with some heavy roasted coffee notes, some fresh topsoil earthiness, some light baker’s unsweetened chocolate. Mouthteel has a decent thickness to it. Rather enjoyable.

Davros (2182) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2015
Pours black with a large off-white head. Nose shows bready, toasty and roasted malt hinting at chocolate. Flavours are a cross between a brown ale and a porter. A fair bit of roasted malt but also some bready, toasty malt.

malrubius (1990) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 6, 2015
Bottle from Brew Topia. Dark brown with tan head and lace. Very roasty caramel nuts and woody aroma. Roasted caramel chocolate nutty sweetness with minimal fruit and very roasty nutty woody bitterness with almost a touch of tartness in the back. Medium body. Creamy texture. Very good.

On tap at American Ale House. Roasty malt, coffee aromas. Sweet with light hop note. Dark brown-amber clear with thin head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Nice flavor and balance. Sweet with coffee, roasted malts, and light bitter hop finish. Smooth nutty after with coffee notes.

Tolerable. You can do a lot worse than this brew. Pours nearly black with a tan head. Aroma is full of roasted malt. Body is rather thin with a warm nutty finish.
