UPDATED: AUG 18, 2008 Note: Fooled again by Rogue; this was for a bottle of Rogue Warrior Ale: Itís back. Bottle from Sondra. The blue band is red, and the rising sun is gone. The blue trim on the vest is now red - so itís a two color label - three if you count white. Opaque brown color with a decent tan head. Smells of citrus hop, darker malt, and coffee? Medium plus body with chewy carbonation. Flavor is smooth toasted malt, deal of coffee, and arguably a bit of hop. Putting this in as an APA seems to have been ok in the beginning, but Itís a stout now. So Iím putting it in two places, and the admins can delete whichever rating they choose.

Bomber. Something of a mocha aroma. A nearly opaque brown color with a persevering tan head. Full bodied, moderately carbonated, nearly creamy. Starts with coffee, moves to near burnt malt. Sort of causes twinges in the mouth. Thereís not a great deal of bitter, and the smooth finish is mostly toasted malt. Itís very good stout.

650ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki) - shared with mjs - thanks!
Super smooth roasty aroma. Even better taste. Super drinkability, very mellow. Goddam this is yum. Nice cocoa twist to the roast. Hops fairly subtle. Looked great too, obviously - dark and crowned with a large tight beige head. This beer is one of the pieces of evidence Iíd use to support the claim that American brewers are brewing the best porters in the world currently. Fullers London Porterís almost alone holding the flag.

Draft. This is good, but this is the first time I drank a beer and was thinking of a chocolate breakfast bar. Clearly a sweet stout with a great roasted coffee, chocolate and nut flavor. Good brew.

Bomber poured an opaque black with a lasting brown head. Aromas of bitter chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and vanilla. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of milk chocolate, vanilla, light roastiness and light coffee with a smooth chocolatey finish.

Lubiere (12970) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2004
(Wild Irish Rogue). Opaque black ale with a thich moka head. Chocolate and vanilla comes out with floral hops in the nose. Sweet chocolate with floral hops, whre the chocolate bitterness marries with the floral hops very well. A certain harshness is noticed near the end. . Good body where both types of bitterness are dancing with each other, fine brew.

Christian (12955) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2007
Jet black with a lasting light brown head. Burned and roast aromas, some wood, brandy and a hint of cherry. Sweet and fruity flavour that finishes dry and wooden. Somewhat thin and watery for the big flavour.
