SDalkoholic (2365) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle from Sprouts: Poured a dark gloomy liquid nearly opaque because of how much sediment/junk are floating in balanced equilibrium. Aroma is based primarily based off malts while there is a heavy dosage of spices on my nose that I could care less to individually pick one by one. The drink delivers a tart taste of expired malt sugars and expending yeast but somehow still gives off an artificial rye bread flavor that I find putrid which ends up tasting like the most dud first growth chatoe rogue Ive had- to date.

Poured from a bottle. Clear light brown color, no real head . Not much of a nose. Light fizzy grain body with a light bitter finish.

I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. The smoky aroma reminded me of camping: it was a perfect mix of forest and smoke aromas. The taste was unique, with mild flavors, a nice crisp finish, and a light mouthfeel. It was different from many rye beers so it was not what I expected, but it was a pleasant experience all the same.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle from wegmans. Pours dark brown with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is sweet rye bread, light raisin. The taste has spicy rye, dry bitterness, and a bit of a hop kick in the finish.

I poured a 22oz bottle into a nonic pint glass. There was no freshness date. I got this at #BBC13.

Appearance: Seemingly opaque brown, but actually a lovely chestnut/mahogany hue. Plenty of carbonation visible. Forms a large, tan, foamy head which retains and laces very well.

Smell: Dank, earthy aroma, not unlike wet leaves or a woodland area.

Taste: The roggenbier is an extremely rare style to encounter. While plenty of breweries make beer with rye, this style is rye-forward. That being said, I was surprised upon my first sip of Rogue Roguenbier Rye Ale since its smoky character is so prominent that it drinks more like a traditional rauchbier than anything else. Not that thats a bad thing, just not what I was expecting.

Its a little difficult to describe the flavor of this beer as its a bit unusual. Most rye ales tend to be lighter, but the darkness here makes it more akin to a brown ale. Theres a light sweetness at the beginning with hints of brown sugar and caramel. Mild bitterness at the crest of the swig - slightly dry, but nothing of the usual pine/citrus/floral character. On the finish the smoke comes out and makes itself known. I wasnt expecting this because theres no smoke on the nose, but its definitely there on the back end. Nothing too intensely smoky, but too strong to be described as subtle. These flavors keep repeating themselves and while theyre enjoyable, theyre not amazing. Though I was disappointed by the lack of any rye flavor whatsoever.

Drinkability: Smoke beers tend to be acquired tastes, though Id say Rogue Roguenbier Rye Ale is probably a good introductory beer or for those not huge fans of the style since the smoke isnt too intense and the palette is well-balanced. Its actually quite easy to drink as the mouthfeel is rather soft with a creamy texture and smooth finish. The smoke flavor lingers momentarily accompanied by a slight metallic character, too. At 6.6% ABV its got plenty of body and weight for its strength, though I had no trouble drinking the entire bottle myself. This beer would be ideal with any type of barbeque food, rather than as a standalone beverage.

BiereLuc (1266) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2013
Bire cuivre et voile avec une faible effervescence et un col de mousse consquent. Le nez est doux, floral et parfum; un peu dherbe frachement coupe se dgage avec quelque chose qui rappelle la lavende. En bouche, une fine amertume supporte les saveurs principalement maltes (lger caramel sur les flancs). Rien de mmorable, mais une trs belle interprtation dune bire avec du seigle, sans dfaut majeur.

Dark amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice malt build and hops balance. Decent amount of smoked aroma and flavors. Very nice beer.

650ml brown bottle. Deep amber pour with a massive off white head, creamy bead, good lacing. Nose has trace of smoke, rye and caramel. Taste has caramel, grain, rye spice. Dry finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Smooth and easy drinking rye ale.

bulldogops (2322) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2013
8oz sample at Beer Rev purely out of my growing interest in rye grain bevvys. This was a deep coppery brown coloured pour with a mild tan foam that faded to a ring. Nose was teddy graham cookies, chocolate, toffee, and vegetable oil. Mild alcohol warmth and carbonation (well disguised at 6.6%) Taste is lagery, a mild peppery smokiness from the rye grain, mild toffee and caramel malt sweetness, but a load of noble hop grassiness. Finishes smooth, and super light - not at all what was expected of the big dark brew in front of me. Worth revisiting.
