my girlfriend picked this one up because she liked the bottle (i admittedly like it too), and she loves fruit beers. havent had much braggot either, so i opened this up with much anticipation. it ours a dark purple to mahogany color, dense and hard to tell if its cloudy or just too think to let any light shine through. the head is pinky cream colored, and fizzles out rather quickly. an aroma of fresh pulped berries and sticky sweet meadow honey arises, with very little real alcohol heat or harshness, which surprises me at this strength. i taste the berries first in the flavor, and while i havnt had much experience with the marionberry, it reminds me of a cross between blueberry and blackberry and elderberry here. its deeply purple, skins tart like wine grapes and elderberries, but the fruit appears to be very sweet, and in combination with the honey, its gorgeous, almost medicinal in that i feel like its almost good for me, despite the alcohol. honey is fresh and floral and different from other honey beers because i can actually taste it. its sweet but never offensively so, and its actually pretty well carbonated despite looking flat. it drinks heavy though, especially as it warms, turning into almost english barleywine, bu the fruity character remains dominant. i liked this beer far more than i ever though i would, i have a new appreciation for both the fruit here and the braggot style, which i need to find more of and continue this trip. id like to see more rogue around shelves in colorado, everytime i have a new beer from them it surpasses my expectations. this is awesome stuff.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A- Pours a dark brown, with a quarter inch head that quickly dissipated

S- Boozy and little bit of oak

T- Booze, caramel, toffee, and berries to a lesser degree

M- For such a boozy smell and taste, it has a surprisingly thin mouthfeel

My first time trying this style. It seems close to a barleywine. Good for the summer months. This was not nearly as sweet as I thought it would be. I would try others of this style, but I probably wouldn't come back to this one.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - A really good looking brew. Deep, dark walnut body with toasted highlights. Fine off-white head has ok rendition and lace.

S - Molasses, tart berries, touch of burnt honey, Crystal-Light berry mix.

T - My first braggot - it's definitely interesting. Drinks a boozy English barelywine. Booze, buckwheat honey, caramel, molasses, brown bread, peaches, and plums.

M - Smooth with a boozy kick and low on carbonation.

O - Not necessarily my favorite style, but definitely not my least favorite either. It's a strong, fruit-forward beer with it's sweetness balance by warm alcohol.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a oversized wine glass.

A - pours a ruddy hazel brown with a thin khaki head.

S - bready malts, yeasty, cacao, citrusy alcohol,

T - sweet bready malts, honey grains, has a currant and tart berry twang to it. Layers of bitter cocoa, caramel, and toasted bread crust meld well with honey sweetness. Finishes slightly bitter and dry with a tangy sweetness.

M - medium full body, medium carbonation, drying finish.

Great mix of sweet, tangy and dry. The alcohol is almost undetectable. This was a nice surprise.

A: Pours a dark, murky amber with a creamy, thin khaki head.

S: Aromas of honey, marionberry, herbs, grass, and roasted grain are present on the nose.

T: Notes of marionberry, honey, herbs, grass, lemon, caramel, cocoa, and roasted grain fill the mouth. The finish presents lingering notes of marionberry and honey before a peppery, mildly astringent alcohol presence takes over on the fade.

M: Very full in body and dryish. Carbonation is delicate. Alcohol is quite pronounced, but for the style that is to be expected. This is definitely a sipping beer one should approach with respect and caution.

O: I have few complaints with this ale, though I still tend to be of the opinion that braggot just isn't my thing. Still, this is definitely worth trying and fans of the style should be pleased.
