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

22. Pours a murky dark brown with a dense, creamy tan head that’s unfortunately rather shallow and short-lived. Stringy lace persists in spots down the sides of the glass. Rich caramel and slight shortbread nose. Creamy medium body, soft woolly carb. Biscuit, toast, caramel, and nuts on the mid-palate, washing into a long resiny bitter finish. In rough terms of a style description, this is a nice lower-abv version of a dark american barleywine.
