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.

Sampled at the SF Rogue Ale house. A really refreshing beer. Not overpowering but really nice to drink with rich earthy flavors.

Appearance: pours with a large tan head that has nice retention, the beer is a deep dark maroon color, almost brown, appears to be clear Aroma: strong coffee, hard to pick up much else Taste: medium sweetness, coffee, has a coffee bitterness to it as well, Palate: average carbonation, light mouthfeel, small bitter aftertaste Overall: not what I was expecting, it's a light beer with a strong coffee note to it, kind of simple Taste and aroma in my opinion, not bad but not special ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LinusStick (2969) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2015
A delicious brown ale. Aroma was roasted malt with a hint of biscuit, graham cracker and chocolate. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was roasty and good. Roasted malt with a little chocolate and slightly grassy. Mildly hoppy finish with some bitter roasted malt lingering. Nice carbonation.

nearbeer (4061) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 2, 2015
650 ml. pours deep copper-brown with a red tinge and a lasting film of cream. Nose is dry cocoa, dark toast, coffee, prickly green herb and caramel. Flavors of molasses, graham cracker, lightly soured cocoa and green herb. A nice small touch of char and ash on the long finish. Light-medium body is to the sweet side as a good brown should be, but has a nice drinkable balance. Medium carbonation

On tap at 28 Springs. Pours dark brown with a creamy thin tan head. Aroma is slight roast, but very mild. Flavor is smooth with some roast and some hoppiness. Slight bitterness on the finish. Very nice, very drinkable beer.

marcus (7301) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 12, 2015
Bottle from Berkeley Bowl. Pours dark brown with a huge tan head and a chocolate and treacle aroma. There is a light roasted malt flavor with a hint of chocolate and a dry finish.

Cybercat (3876) - 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 (387) - 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 (6044) - 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 (2229) - 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.
