Bottled. A slightly hazy amber coloured beer with a pool of tan bubbles. The aroma is strong on the cascades together with a jammy fruitiness. The taste is nicely malty with chocolate notes and a full bitter finish. Quite toasty and brown bread notes as well. Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2006
355 ml bottle. Fine-laced, but small, head. Amber in color. Hazy. Aroma of sun-dried tomatoes and peppery hops. Rich and complex. Nutty and hop-rich sweet flavours. There is a little roastiness hiding between the malt and the hops as well. Medium-bodied, but clearly a bold beer as it is rich both in aromas and flavours. Aftertaste mostly bitterness from hops, leaves a dry finish on the tongue. Undoubtedly a Rogue beer. sersdf (1020) - chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2006 super awesome. i was pretty drunk the first time i had this, but it was and seems like a hell of a beer. rerate: let’s be serious. rerate: this is a great beer. i bet blind, i would like it more than the comparable brian boru. tons of flavor, huge hoppy nose, an extremely balanced creation. the 3.54 average is a joke. cperry8483 (41) - Platteville, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2006
12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours hazy amber with a medium white head that dissipates to a small ring and leaves a small amount of lace. Hoppy, floral aroma, reminiscent of an APA. Taste is hoppy, again, like a pale ale. Medium mouthfeel with a slight bit of carbonation. Caramelly towards the end with a lingering bitter finish. Reminds me of a mild pale ale. Not bad, but not something I’d go out of my way to get. nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2006
The aroma has caramel malt and pine hops. The appearance is dark red amber with a small head. The taste is toasted malt, caramel, and bitter hops that add a coffee taste. The palate is average but good kind of like this beer.

Biggish off-white coarse-laced head over dark red body. Soft, sweet roasty malt aroma with a touch of hops. Deep, sweet taste of smoky, roasted malts with a toffeeish, marzipany flavour combined with a very nice, grainy hop profile. Yet another excellent beer from Rogue; drinkable, interesting, harmonic.

found in a 22oz bottle. poured a hazy copper with minimal head and no lacing. aroma was of sweet malt with some citrus and smokey (maybe because i just light the fireplace). balanced taste with a subtle dry hops finish. very enjoyable. porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - FEB 16, 2006
(Bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maine/portland/ target=blank>Downeast Beverage Co.) Cloudy coppery orange. Rich biscuit head. Nice aroma of bread and hops. Good lacing. Nice full body. Great rounded taste of bitterness, maltiness and bread. A treat. grat (432) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 3, 2006
Pretty solid beer. Hazy and muddy coppery haze. Nose is pacman yeast and sweet malts, bitter edge. Assertive earthy sweetness at first. This fades into a distinct bitterness that plasy nicely off of the malty backbone. This is a solid ale. Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2006
Light to medium red coloring with a light white/tan head. The aroma is sweet and hoppy. The taste is citrus sweet with light hopps and malt.
