Pint at the Rogue pub in Newport. Not many Roggenbiers here in the states! Nice earthy flavors marry well w/subtle hopping creating a very quaffable experience. A well brewed beer.

660ml bottle (BierKompass.de)
Sweet aroma, marshmallow and that fake nougat. Later celeriac. Even later white wine. Kinda savoury taste. Some odd herbal aspects refer back to the celeriac. Full smooth palate, soft carbonation. A bit of a mixed up mess. Sweet roasted marshmallow, rough burnt edge.

(Bottle, 0.65 l, courtesy of FatPhil, 20140715) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was quite large, white and it lasted long. Aroma had malts, molasses and caramelly sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, sugary sweetness, molasses, herbalness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, malty and bitter. Way too sweet.

Poured from tap into a pint glass. Very little head. Kind of a plasticy taste. Wasn't terrible to where I couldn't finish, but wasn't thrilled about it.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Transparent cherry sepia, thin white ring. Stale oat and sugar nose, faint rye peppery spic but forgettable. Flavor is worse, tons of sugar and playdoh, sticky and empty in the end where toast and sugars combat for what’s left of this sweet emptiness. Rye is inexpressive, underattenuated, no complexity, wort-esque.
