Bottle. Poured clear brown with an average to large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted rye sweet aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This sweet beer would go well with a full bodied cigar.

bread, toasty, spruce, earthy, leaves, smoke, brown, clear, minimal head, tan foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, light body, slick feel, average carbonation, astringent, bitter, long finish
Medium dark brown pour with tan foam. Decent lacing. Aromas of dark pumpernickel bread - so spicy. Earthy/spruce and some smokiness as well. Taste is grainy with a sourness overriding. Light in body with decent carbonation. Finish left a prolonged astringency which (for me) was not that pleasant. May need to try this again to see if it is the same result.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, light beige head, with Belgian curtain lacing, over a clear, initially, later cloudy, dark brown (SRM 25) body......nose is heavy rye, hints of cocoa, light banana/bubblegum, slight herbal hops........taste is heavy rye, very light banana/bubblegum, no clove, cocoa, finishing with a moderate herbal bitterness.......mouth feel, medium body, no alcohol, carbonation makes a creamy mouthful. This is a nice Roggenbier ignoring the Rogue pun. The yeast contribution is a bit low for the style, but it is otherwise a good representation. Perhaps a yeast change would improve. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Half pint from Urban TapHouse in Cardiff (not necessarily best source). Pours a very dark brown with a thin sandy off-White head. Aroma is very grainy and smokey, low to none hop aroma. Slightly muddy aroma. Taste is smokey caramel. It’s like charcoal and crystal malts. Not an awful lot of rye coming through but a moderately spicy rye note underpinning the smoke. Smooth and drinkable but distinctly average.

Pretty good. I don’t know what rye tastes like. It works though as a general all purpose style of session beer.
