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.

Bomber... Dark brown with hints of red. Nice tan head. Pleasant mild caramel malt aroma. Malty sweet toasty malt profile. Fuller body. Real clean and my style. Brown ales aren’t a WOW type style but its a great go-to beer.

Pours deep deep brown. Cream head that doesnt hang around for long. Soft mouth feel and hints of smokey charcoal amongst the nutty malt. Touches of dried fruit complete the palate. The finish has hints of chocolate .

Shaker pint draft at Old Chicago in Overland Park, Kansas. The pour is a hazed brown with a minimal light tan head. The aroma is soft roast nut malt along with a touch of grass. The taste is the fresh roast and toast of the malt, also has a softly sweet caramel nut flavor then moves into a nice dry mineral grass. Yeast in the finish. Nice showcase for the malt. The palate is medium to light bodied with soft natural carbonation and the dry mineral finish.

Draft. A- Roasty, subtle coffee, cocoa, subtle sweetness. A- Dark brown color, dark liquid, beige head. T- Roasty, subtle coffee, chocolate. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- For some reason I kept calling this French Roast and assuming it was a coffee beer. Not so. It’s a brown ale and not a bad one. Yes, there are hints of coffee in it and plenty of roasted malts that balance well.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a deep brown nearly black color with a one finger head of off white color. The head fades rather quickly leaving a bit of streaky lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – As one may expect for a coffee stout, the aroma of the beer is strongest of an expresso smell mixed with some roasted bready aromas. Along with these smells comes some lighter notes of caramel and vanilla with just a hint of a chocolate mixed within. Taste – The taste begins with a strong roasted malt flavor mixed with some lighter coffee notes upfront. As the taste moves on the coffee intensifies some and becomes moderately strong more toward the end of the taste. All the while, some sweeter flavors of vanilla and caramel develop, only later fading more toward the end. With the roast gaining more intensity at the end, and with an increase in the coffee and decrease in the sweet, one is left with a roasty and darker, malty taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the slightly more creamy and thick side with a carbonation level that was a bit low. For the coffee and roasty tastes of the brew the feel was rather nice and created a mouth coating coffee feel for the brew overall. Overall – Not a bad coffee porter/brown/stout. Less sweet and not overly strong in coffee, but containing a good sum of roasty malt. It really wasn’t much different than a more standard (non-coffee) drier stout in my opinion, but with that said, it was a nice and enjoyable brew overall.

Pours a dark brown colour with modest-sized light tan head. Aroma is extremely roasty with both coffee and chocolate as well as some earthy character. Flavour has big roastiness, fair amount of coffee, some chocolate and some earthy character. Mellower carbonation. Nice one.
