2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
6/23/2010: Rogue Mogul Madness... Aroma: Pine, citrus, and earthy hops; toffee; similar to that of a Pacific Northwestern Style Red IPA... Appearance: Deep brown color with a thick beige-colored head of foam. Flavor: Bittersweet toffee maltiness (seems a bit scorched though) followed by peppery, earthy, floral, and resinous bitterness; fairly high bitterness level, but nothing seems to blend or work together; tastes more like an experimental homebrew; weird spiced characteristic; needs more hop flavor to balance the raw bitterness. Palate: Average. Overall: I knew I should have just avoided this beer. I specifically ignored it for my first pint, but then decided to get one anyway for my second pint... Stange brew; seems to be more malt than hops or bitterness; seems scorched; messy, distracted combination of flavors; not recommended...
Draught at The Comet in Northside (Cincinnati, Ohio). Rating #351 for this beer.

On-tap in the Rogue bar on Union St, San Fran: 3rd Feb 2013.
49ers had just blown the Super Bowl and I thought this would go down well too!
It did, an off-white crown sat on top of a dark brown body that had a red hue to its look.
Raosted/toasted malts in both the nose and taste: semi-sweet with a more bitter and dry finish, plenty of flavours to pick up within the brew ranging from coffee at the fore through to a mild citrus note towards the end.
Interesting and a good start to six beer mini-session I had that evening.

Draught @ Beer Temple.
More hazelnut than black IPA. Nice cinnamon head.
Strong roasty-toasty caramel nose.
Taste is tad bit sweet (considering the above), with a bitter finish. Like burnt espresso. Still quite pleasant.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Bishops Arms Avenyn, Göteborg. Very dark brown beer with a nice offwhite head. Hoppy chocolate aroma, caramel, perfume, hay, grassy notes. Licorice, roasted, some fruity notes. Bitter hop flavor, perfume, metal notes, rather thin bodied. A bit of a disappointment considering I usually really like both black IPA and Rouge.
