3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shareed at home thanks to Beese. Aroma is smoke malt, sweet mapel syrup. Vibrant orange colour, slight haze persistent white head. Flavour is slightly sweet mapel, doughy malt. Finishes quite dry surpriseingly. Lingering wood smoke. Campfire smokeyness. A lot more balanced than i thought it would be.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml pink bottle. Hazy dark amber colour. Medium-sized head initially, but falls down quickly leaving a rather dull appearance. Tooth paste aroma with spearmint and hints of smoke. Complex phenolic aroma. Crisp malty flavours. More tooth paste flavours. Sugars flavours, but the body is relatively light. Nicely balanced, but the flavours are really odd making this a rather unusual beer. Very interesting though, but not particularly good.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a lacing white head. Strong, maple aroma with some malt. Interesting taste. Some bacon but very strong maple and brown sugar notes. Taste is not as intense as the aroma. Really interesting beer from Rogue.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It pours an almost clear body, dark golden to amber in color and topped by a finger-thick, dense, light beige head. Quite a lot of maple syrup in the aroma, with smoked malts, sweetness, chocolate, roasted notes and a touch of burnt wood. Sweet on the palate, full-bodied and nicely carbonated. Chocolate, maple syrup, roasted malts, some bonfire, smoked malts and a faint touch of ham in the flavor. Pleasant bitterness lasting for a while. Very woody in the finish. Most definitely a beer that surprised in a nice way. Expected a mess, but it isn’t. Doubt I could down a bottle on my own, but a glass is fine. 130928
