From bottle. Pours almost black with beige head. Aroma: coffee, black malts, chocolate and milky note. Taste with coffee on the first place, sour from dark malts, coffee stays very long. Medium mouth feel. Too high carbonation.

12oz bottle from Mitsuya’s in Asagaya. Poured into a snifter. Dark brown color with a modest tan head. Chocolate and toffee aroma with a slight hint of roasted coffee beans. Tastes of toasted cacao nibs, dark caramel and still only a hint of coffee. Watery mouthfeel with a lot of fine carbonation. Slightly bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a soda brown with a small light tan head that leaves a bit of spotty lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate, toasted malts, raisin, hints of caramel, licorice and coffee. Taste is unsweetened baker’s chocolate, toasted caramel malts, hints of coffee. Backed by a resiny dank hoppiness that comes through as slightly acidic. Quick finish of cocoa and toasted malts. Medium bodied with a disappointing thin, watery texture and slightly higher than average carbonation. Not bad, but not the level of quality I expect from Rogue.

A little whiff of chocolate. Light taste of chocolate. Some cocoa but also watery. Okay bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the upper part of the mouth to a weak moment. Good beer but too watery. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
