Rogue Fresh Roast is made with Rogue Farms barley fresh roasted at the brewery. The barley is taken directly out of the roaster and rushed 273 feet over to the brew kettle. We dont think it gets much fresher than that, and we know youll taste the difference.

rmussman (1701) - California, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Sampled at the SF Rogue Ale house. A really refreshing beer. Not overpowering but really nice to drink with rich earthy flavors.

travita (4935) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Bottle. The look is dark, cola like, bubbly but no head. Sweet, roast, coffee, malt, pretty decent. Just ok.

jkwalking05 (4689) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2017
22 oz bottle. Deep brown with a decent beige head. Aroma is of cocoa, pecan shells, toast, light smoke, and roasted malts. Taste is of milk chocolate, toast, baking cocoa, and light smoke.

Oakes (16465) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 15, 2017
Medium brown, medium head. Light coffee...the roast here is kind of vegetal. The body is fairly thick, but aside from that uninteresting roast theres really nothing to pay attention to here.

tightslice (1140) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 5, 2017
Bottle from Key Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts, charred grains. If youre the kind of person who will eat burnt quinoa at your favorite health-conscious restaurant and pretend "its not so bad", then this is beer for you.

luttonm (5420) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. Creamy, thin off-white head. Very dark, roasty coffee body. Dry roast and molasses aroma. Nice deep roast with the malts, there is something different here. Though not sure if Id have placed it as that tasting it blind. Cool body, muddy edges, nice light bitter grain. Lots of bright barley flavors, well accentuated. Easy drinker. Nice.

StevieT (1884) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2016
From a bottle. Roasted flavour with no burnt acrid taste, smooth and dangerously drinkable, great work.

fiulijn (19872) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2016
Draught at St. Augustines, Vancouver
Dark brown color. The malt flavor has good depth, blending well with the moderately sweet caramel; the aroma presents caramel and fruity esters; it has the malt/caramel profile of a good Sticke, plus the esters. Toasty beer. Very good.

Ferris (13787) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2016
Draft - Nice cocoa and roast. Deep jet brown with a light brown head. Rich roast, molasses and toffee. Sweet and rich despite the ABV.

rosenbergh (11132) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2016
Draught at the Rogue, Newport, OR.
Enjoyed on May 5th 2015. (BB/RB transfer problems delay). Dark reddish brown color with a small light tan head. Mild sweet malty aroma. The flavor is roasted malt, some burned malty notes, some sweetness and a hint of bitterness. Decent.

UXO (1683) - CANADA - NOV 16, 2016
Appearance: clear amber brown with two fat fingers of fluffy beige head, moderate retention and lacing. (3/5) Aroma: chocolate, coffee, caramel, dark fruit, hint of liquorice and citrus. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter, light astringent. (7/10) Medium body, mildly moderate carbonation, medium duration bitter nutty and lightly astringent finish. (4/5) Interesting. Both the brewer and the style are, in my opinion and experience, as likely to disappoint as not - but this is actually all right. Roasty malt sweetness is somewhat high but well balanced against a moderate hop bitterness augmented by a light coffee astringency, with hints of liquorice and citrus. Overall, pretty mellow and pleasant. I think this would be particularly good on a nitro tap. (14/20)
