Draft at Eulogy. Clear dark copper pour with a light foamy head. Dark toasted red fruits. Raisin pie with a burnt crust. Caramel popcorn. Sugar plums. Dried figs. Charcoal grilled strawberries. Christmas candy sugar clear toys. Dark and red but finishes very clean. Took a moment to decide that I really do like it quite a bit.

Aroma is that of grass and earth. Appears as a dark cloudy amber with nearly no foam. Tastes like it smells; grassy and earthy. Very unique flavor that doesn’t let you forget about it even after you’ve swallowed. A good beer poured from a 7 oz bottle bought on clearance. Excellent choice but not worth paying much more than $2.

diabel (1607) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2012
Hazy amber-brown body with an off-white head. Aroma of fresh hops, with some honey and caramalts. Heavily bitter, lightly sweet flavour. Powdery dry mouthfeel with some alcoholic touches. Very refreshing. Excellent one.

seymour (1456) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Sampled from a 7oz shorty bottle into a nonic pint glass, thanks gregwilsonstl. It poured a mostly clear amber color with weak beige head, no lace. Very hoppy aroma: grapefruit and other citrus rind, flowery, earthy, and malty underneath. High-gravity but neutral fermentation, lacking any fruity ale complexity, typical of Rogue. Tasted of strong caramel malt backbone with equally strong bittering and flavor hops, not much else. Not sure what they were going for here, but they cranked it to 11 as usual. Just kinda boring this time.

Dark brown. Nice head. Quite bitter, but not overwhelming. Very rich. There is nothing to this except for bitterness.

tkrjukoff (4082) - SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle 7 oz, Total Wine & More. Pours murky amber with a small bubbly tanned head leaving some lacing. Aroma is fruity malty a bit sweet bready citric. Flavor is malty sweet toasted in front, more bitter bready fruity from middle to end finishing with a dryish malty and fruity aftertaste.

On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours cloudy amber with thin lingering head. Aroma is thin, faint hop notes. Taste is sweet caramel malt with rich smooth body. A hint of hops on the finish. Pretty good for the style, but lacking in hops for my taste.
