This beer pours black with brownish tints. Smells and tastes nutty, roasted soba. Would happily down another.

On tap at Summits Wayside Tavern...Good earthy nose on this one. Nice roasted characters in the mix as well. Not my favorite but glad to have had the chance this far from a Rogue Brewhouse.

Mmm. Ebony in color with a medium light tan head. Subtle nutty and malty flavor. Well-balanced. Delicious on tap.

Bottle. Light black color with a thin, durable head. A bit more of a roasted flavor than the regular Rogue Soba with a clean bitterness and a medium body. I can’t say too much more as this stuff just isn’t memorable enough. I still love Rogue.

I have to say, I’m not a huge fan of the regular soba beer, and this one has some of the same flavors that turn me off. Its interesting though that the only dark malt used is the roasted soba-no roasted barley or anything. Still, I’m a big fan of experimentation, so kudos for that.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2004
It’s black, alrighty, nearly opaque, but with crimson shining around the sides, and the head is big, tan, and chunky, leaving lace, and slow to settle. Nose is a little grainy, but mostly smooth, creamy. Taste, full-bodied, thoroughly flavorful, malty, rich, solid, ..tasty! Roasty! Intriquing...what should just be a smooth food-chaser has got some guts, some sturdy character, a real, true presence on the palate. Very substantial, and ...yum...I could throw back a couple or three of these, for sure. I said "solid" already, so...’nother good one, Rogue! Mmmmm!

Black pour with a thin creamy tan head. Nice roasted flavor with some residual sweetness in the finish. I wouldnt call it a porter as it seems more like a schwarzbier. Pretty good easy drinker.

Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Moderately malty ale, like a Mild, roasted with some milky quality and a distinctive celery seed flavor. Dark nutty color. A bit thin despite an attacking palate? Perhaps a contradiction?

bu11zeye (11925) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a cola-like body with a small beige head. Aroma of black licorice, and then later a smelly shoe. Flavor is slghtly smokey, powdered whey, cola, and flat (non-Rogue characterstic). Creamy, but thin mouthfeel.

Hab40oz (242) - Grants Pass, Oregon, USA - AUG 22, 2004
pours a dark brown almost black, good beige head with little to no lacing. Very light going down for a dark beer, smooth and satisfying. A rich almost creamy start and a nice hoppy bite at the end which doesn’t linger around too long. a good solid brew
