Oakes (16969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2008
Pretty sure this was it, though without any recent ratings I’m a little skeptical. On tap at Funky Buddha. Light amber colour. Toasty-crackerlike fresh malt nose. Somewhat sweet on the palate, and becomes moreso as the glass goes. It moves towards being less toasty and more caramelly, and doesn’t really finish well at all. Needs some dryness, even if just from toasty malts.

(Draft, Rich O’s) Pours an amber-brown body with a medium-sized creamy white head. Aroma of caramel, malt, mild hops, and some flaorls. Flavor of malts, caramel, and cinnamon.

3fourths (9299) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2005
Rogue Pub Eugene. Clear dark orange color with a very small head. Light carbonation, but that may have been the fault of the pub. Spicy flavor, nutty, mellow sweet honey and brown sugar, with a festive leaf and apple flavor. Nose is sweet with a festive fall spice flavor, like fall leaves and nutmeg.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2008
On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Part of the Johns Locker Series. Pours a light & clean orange gold. Slight toasty bready aroma but not really much here. Taste has some caramel nuttiness to it. Lacking the smoothness that a heavier malt character would provide. Rather abrupt alcohol/ bitter bite. Disappointing

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2004
Draught (Rogue Alehouse Issaquah) pours amber, biased towards the orange side, fairly clear, small frothy off-white head, light carbonation, with light lacing.   Malty & nutty aroma... quite different from most Rogue brews.   Slightly sweet and quite malty on the tongue.   Great body and mouthfeel.   This is perhaps the best Oktoberfest that I have had this year.   Finishes smooth with lingering sweet malts.   I would have better notes but seeing as this one isn’t bottled I got rather upset.   Highly recommended.

Suttree (6296) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 9, 2008
At Barley’s, Knoxville. Orange, thin but sturdy white head. Aroma is a little bit fruity and a lot grainy. Flavor is bready and toasty, with a bit more alcohol heat than I expected. Finish is harsh bitterness. Kinda ventures into malt liquor territory, actually.

Cybercat (5562) - Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Comes out of the tap a beautiful clear honey-golden with a decent and attractive head. Aroma is crisp and fairly strong and richly malty with just a hint of fruit. Flavor is satisfying and malty and has a subtle fruity undertone. Texture is smooth and tingly. Not Rogue’s best, but worthy of them.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Tap @ The Front Door: Pours a dark amber color with a nice head and light lacing. The nose has a slight adjunct nose with light lagery florals and a moderate alcohol note. The pacman yeast is a little lose on the style. Lacking the nutty and caramelly notes that make this type of beer. The alcohol bites through the tail with a slight plum and jammy note. I’ve always wanted to try this, now that I have, I’m sorry I did.
