It pours with a thick, brown head. It is dark brown in color. It has coffee aromas mixed with nuts that has a spicy pop to it. The head is uneven and does provide some lacing as it recedes. It has a coffee and nut taste with other roasted flavors.

rayaron (784) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle sample at Rogue Brewery tasting at Beer&Beyond, Tel Aviv. Dark brown with quickly diminishing light brown head. Heavy roasted malt aroma, coffee. Flavor of roasted malt, Japanese tea, notes of coffee, raisins. Feel like kind of lager. Light to medium body. Lack of alcohol. Roasted finish.

Bottle @ RBBSG, 2014. Thanks Benzai! Dark brown with beige foam. Soft carbonation. Light roasted with some sweet hints. Bit fruity. Rather flat, also metallic notes. Not very well balanced.

650 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBSG III. Thanks to Benzai! Dark amber. Nose is a bit odd, plain spaghetti / soba, light malt & caramel. Taste is weak, nondescript, soba / spaghetti, touch malt, caramel, faint paint thinner. Med, bit thinner body. Eh, I cannot make up my mind if this is an interesting concept or another one of Rogue’s inexplicable fallacies.

Pours a deep brown with thin tan head. Interesting aroma of roasted malts. Sweet and toasty flavor with mild bitterness balancing it out. The malts are super smooth almost creamy and somehow get the toasted flavor through without additional bitterness. Good stuff if you're in the mood for a dark ale that's not as bitter as an IPA and something thinner than a porter or stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark cola brown appearance with beige head. Aroma consists of caramel malts. Taste of toast, dark malt and nuts. Pretty smooth. Decent although not super exciting.

Botella de 65 cl en el lúpulo. Junio de 2013. Lote csnw13 hasta 20-12-2013. Asomas y sabores especiados con bastantes toques maltosos y de cereales y con un cuerpo medio, fácil de beber. Interesante, para repetir.
