3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dror S.’s place. Thanks Tom L. Dark brown with a big beige head. Aroma of stale hops, a bit piney, with roastiness and a bit of chocolate. Roasty flavor, a bit sweetish, with hints of chocolate and coffee and a hoppy bitterness, kinda stale. Medium-bodied. Not fresh enough.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler - pours brownish red with lots of beige head and faint lacing. Nose is pine, resin, caramel, and grapefruit. Flavor adds a slight metallic element. Quite bitter and a bit sweet. Long bitter finish. Medium body. A great value and full of flavor. I wish I could a keg of this. However, the neophyte in me wonders why this is a black ipa and not an imperial amber.

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.

Chelmsford Beer Festival. Keg from Podge’s bar. Almost clear dark red beer. Good size pale tan head. Palate is light and a little dry. Good fine carbonation. Nice piney hops with a light spice. Very light citrus. Underpinned by lactose sweet caramel malt. Finishes minerally.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
