Good looking beer in the glass. Dark brown beer with shades of ruby/tawny port. Nice thick mocha head. Aromas are mocha, dark chocolat. I get a lack of complexity on the nose. Taste and mouthfeel are very narrow. Light body, watery mouthfeel, big lack of complexity again. Enjoyable in it’s own style but not my cup of tea.

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.
