COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
John’s Locker Stock Series - Originally brewed at the Issaquah location
A strong but well-balanced winter warmer, this ale has extreme complexity made for a holiday feast. The addition of raisins and molasses in the brewing process produces unusual spiced rum like flavors to go along with the well-balanced malt (two row, brown, crystal 40) and hops (bittering Palisades, aroma Centennial).

Dark reddish brown pour with no head. The aroma is very strongly of dark fruit, sugar, brown sugar, basic rum like notes. The flavor is also strongly alcoholic with lots of fermented ripe fruits, raisins, some bittering hops, and more strong vinous fruit. Body is full, lots of booze, pretty damn strong. Not really that interesting, but strong if thats what you are down with.

On tap at Barleys in Knoxville. Poured a hazy brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is of citrus and pine with dark fruits and raisins. Flavor is sweet malt with raisins and molasses. I had several of these. Really enjoyable.

You know you’re getting hops with Rogue and this is no exception. This is an adventure to drink. Aromas of raisins, citrus and pine start you off thinking you might get a mellow journey, but the first taste tells you otherwise announcing the hop presence joined with a pairing of molasses and anise.

Bier brauen (246) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2007
dark opaque amber, thin beige head, touch of lace. sweet malt aroma with riasin character, hot alcohol, lingering bitterness is the only thing to identify it as a Rogue, rich fruity malt flavor, a bit thin,

Draft at Barley’s Tap in Chattanooga, TN under JLS #17. Poured dark brown color with a large frothy brown head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate complex toasted malt, tart citrus aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture. Heavy balanced bittersweet flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - MAR 28, 2007
Cloudy brown pour with black hues, looks grainy. Beige head is small and persistent. Aroma is very sweet and fruity, with notes of raisins, grapefruit, orange, raspberry, toasty malts, chocolate milk, caramel , pine needles and anise. Different. Flavor is signifigantly drier, with a nod to more malts and caramel, fruitiness still present but a backseat passenger now. Anise is more defined and lingers in a grainy and sweet finish that eventually dries out fully. Palate is medium to full bodied, moderately bitter and wildly acidic at points. Wild brew.
