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.

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured brown with a nice tan head. Nose of roasted malts showing the aroma of chocolate and coffee, plus citrus. Medium body. Smooth mouth feel. Flavor rich and the chocoale, coffee, and citrus blend well together and culminates in a bitter finish. Seems more like a porter than a brown buy who cares. Nice beer.

Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Looks like a porter or stout with a big tan head. Lots of sticky lacing. The aroma is of swampy coffee and chocolate. Those are tasted along with citrus fruit. The is a surprisingly gentle beer. Some earth along with light roast is tasted. And at the finish a little tobacco. This had a lot of nice subtlety and it was pleasant from start to finish. A nice beer.

stevoj (3026) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Bottle from Albertsons. Solid, sweet brown ale. Neat black pour, creamy beige head. Sweet malt, molasses, caramel aroma. Taste kicks the sweet factor up a notch, dominating the entire taste. Touch of hop bitterness tempers the sweetness at the end.

TheBeerGod (5633) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Bottle. Black pour with a short, fizzy brown head. Roasted malt, sweet malt, caramel and light coffee in the nose. Taste is roasted malt, sweet malt, light caramel and soft coffee. Medium bodied with a strong, bubbly and prickly carbonation. Ever so slightly sticky as well. Ends a touch sweeter with more sweet maltiness, caramel, roasted malt and light coffee.

Bottled. Pours a deep brown. A nutty malty monster. Not sure if freshness made a difference but it’s good.
