You know you’re getting hops with Rogue and this is no exception. This is an adventure to drink. Aromas of raisins, citrus and pine start you off thinking you might get a mellow journey, but the first taste tells you otherwise announcing the hop presence joined with a pairing of molasses and anise.

Draft at Barley’s Tap in Chattanooga, TN under JLS #17. Poured dark brown color with a large frothy brown head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate complex toasted malt, tart citrus aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture. Heavy balanced bittersweet flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

Cloudy brown pour with black hues, looks grainy. Beige head is small and persistent. Aroma is very sweet and fruity, with notes of raisins, grapefruit, orange, raspberry, toasty malts, chocolate milk, caramel , pine needles and anise. Different. Flavor is signifigantly drier, with a nod to more malts and caramel, fruitiness still present but a backseat passenger now. Anise is more defined and lingers in a grainy and sweet finish that eventually dries out fully. Palate is medium to full bodied, moderately bitter and wildly acidic at points. Wild brew.

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a very small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a transparent softly carbonated brown colored body. The mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was strongly tingly at the start and weakly tingly at the finish. The strong flavor contained notes of hops spices vinous and dark malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again. The aroma was its weakest point.

Orange-red sunset w. nice head. Warm, malty aroma full of bread and raisins. Peppery warmness again of bread and raisins w. a light candi malt in the back ground. Finish is all raisins. A a very warming experience--perfect for winter. Full-bodied and all that you would hope for of a winter brew.
