2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a dark amber brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of rye bread, spices, some dank herbal notes and a bit of dry malt. Flavour is very similar, with notes of dank herbs, spices, and rye bread. Drinks okay, but the flavours are a bit off-putting. Decent stuff.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Happy Gnome. Murky amber pour with a white head. Pretty bland and thin overall - a little rye in here but otherwise kind of empty. Not bad, just not interesting.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle, shared with friends. Mostly clear darker red / brown color. One-finger off-white head. God thick lace. Medium body, smooth carbonation. Dry finish. Interesting rye beer - different than most I’ve tried, mostly in that it’s not nearly as hoppy. Much more prominent rye malt. No balance, but it’s a rye-featuring beer. Toasty, spicy, bready malt. Maybe a tiny bit of earthy hop. Rye malt is very big, lingers long in the aftertaste, but I don’t mind it, I think it’s pretty interesting. Very much like rye bread, which I dig. Bitter taste, very dry. I was told by someone before I bought this that it was terrible, a drain-pour, she even said. I can see why, it’s a rye-bomb. But that’s interesting to me.. Unique thing, here

65 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours clear dark copper color with a small head. Quite weird on the nose, some dark berries, rye, caramel malts, mild grain and faint hops. Flavor is fruity and there’s a lot of carbonation, gooseberries, malts, rye, some toffee and more malts. Very lively carbonated palate, feels quite light considering the abv. Somewhat unique. Lacks something essential though.

draft at Coles, darker pour, blackish. Lots of rye, bread, some rye harshness, pretty hefty dose of roasted malts. the main components do not seem exactly in sync. OK

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tampa, Fl - Total Wine - 22 oz bomber. Dark brown tannin colored pour with a frothy, bubbly khaki colored head. Earthy aroma with some nutmeg accents, a hint of root beer. Flavor is subdued but hearty. Pick up some light anise seed, a hint of minty rye, a bit of potting soil, just a hint of unsweetened chocolate. Mouthfeel has a nice softness to it. Not one of Rogue’s finer specimens, but does in a pinch.
