Draught. Poured caramel brown with medium off white head. Malty aroma, sort of toasty. Malt in the flavour without much else, full bodied, Sort of an off finish. Not all that interesting.

Pours dark copper reddish brown with thick cream head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy with notes of alcohol. Flavor is warming with moderate bitterness. Very nicely hopped. There are notes of molasses and pine/spruce trees. Overall a very nice holiday beer especially for the hop lovers!

Tmoney99 (11812) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2009
Bottle from Beer Cellar. Poured clear reddish brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy malt and earthy hop aroma. Moderate body and smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy biiter flavor to medium to heavy bitter and small alcohol burn finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met with a good complex beer.

What a nice beer! Crimson amber in color with a thick and rocky head. Some dough in the aroma with a nice combination of floral hops. A little spiciness in the nose. Medium bodied. Lots of dark caramel, some burnt edges and a bit of roasted malt combine with some zesty hops - lots of pine and spruce trees. Slight lingering bitterness and residual burnt sugar. A delight!

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 2, 2009
On tap at Tyler’s. Pours chesnut/copper, very dark with smallish beige head. Big skunky hop nose, but also a good deal of malt to back it up. Lovely beer, with maybe a bit of spice added. A little heavy/sweet, but a great winter seasonal.

Hazy deep ruby with a very nice tan head... Aroma of citrus hops and toasted malts, not sweet... Toasted/Burnt malts dominate citrus hops... I’m very much enjoying these dark hoppy beers, i much prefer these burnt/toasted malts to a lot of malts found in red ales,,, medium bodied, medium mouthfeel... nice beer

Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Pours a lovely clear garnet with an initial 1/4 inch tan head that quickly fades. Get the booze on the nose with some underlying sweetness. Taste is about the same, less astringent but more bitter than the aroma. A little bit of lacing. Mouth feel is like a watered down champagne. Slightly warming affect down the throat. A nice winter warmer and not a bad offering from Rogue.

pours a clear dark copper with a small tan head, and good lacing. smell is of spice, caramel, and sour malt. taste is creamy, sour malt, burnt caramel, hops in the back, spice, and pepper, ends slightly dry, and nicely bitter.

3rd. Quite a relief from the staple Rogue flavor background, Mogul Madness is a Black-Diamond on the senses. A dark mahogany reddish brown gives way to a tall and thick, tan head that laces nicely down the glass. While the taste came in with some roasted chocolate and caramel melted over a bouquet of hops, and a spicy cracked pepper aftertaste it doesn’t sway too much in one direction. A medium to heavy body is perfect and easily drinkable, yet demanding of strict attention. One of Rogue’s best!

dark reddish with thick tan head, an attractive appearing brew. sweet malt and hop, but no distinctive note. some reasonably assertive hop bitterness followed by some high crystal malts and an herbal and spicy hop presence. a large portion of residual malt sweetness, with mild esters from the yeast. maybe even a little roast. a good example of the winter american strong ale/ipa that is becoming popular
