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.

The "fresh roast" that they're going for is well done, the beer has the flavour of a freshly brewed pot of coffee. It is rich with mild chocolate notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ben4321 (5481) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Bottle from Hoboken Vine. Rating#5454!
Dark brown pour with a frothy, sheeting tan colored head that leaves fairly strong lacing on the glass. Nice malty aroma of roast, a bit of coffee, caramel, chestnuts, and some earth. Flavor is clean and a little bitter. Roasty and fairly dry. I think they kinda nailed it honestly. Color me impressed by this beer. It is exactly what it sets out to be. Both nuanced and flavorful, this is a really nice beer.
