Bottle shared @ ChrisO after GBBF Day 2. Clear brown color, average sized beige head. Smell and taste malts, soft roast, quite hoppy, chocolate, nicely bitter. Decent to medum body and carbonation. Very nice, but is it a brown ale? Oh well, nice beer anyway.. :)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
759ml bottle as a gift. Dark brown, only slightly translucent. Tiny bit of white head. roast coffee, fresh toast and chocolate in the nose. Sweet taste with a bit of chocolate and Berry. There’s a mild bitter/sour twist at the end with a hoppy fruity finish. Pretty good but a bit staid compared to many of Rogue’s excellent beers.
