3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow-Downtown, 12/13/12
Aroma: The nose is a bit earthy, some yeasty notes, grains, fruity esters, herbs, and a bit of smoke
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color, with a red hue, a lasting, foamy beige head, and heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is much like the nose, with a little sweetness, and some light-medium bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a smooth, creamy feel, a soft carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
Only 3 raters of this one? Seems pretty low for a Rogue beer that I purchased in NJ. Anyway, as for the beer, this one is interesting. There’s a lot going on here for sure. Maybe a little too much? I can’t decide. This one doesn’t make the transition from just interesting to really good. It ends up somewhere right in there.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thx! To Antoine. Sampler draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Apparently all ingredients were grown @ there own farms. Pours dark brown with an off-white beige head. Nose is sweet metallic, herbs, black bread, bitter herbs, rather off-putting honestly. Taste is sweet black bread, rye, herbal, metallic, black liquorish, caramel, dried fruits, grains, spices, light smoke,… Sticky body,… No, this is not particularly enjoyable. Good for them to have farms and everything.
