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.

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

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.

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

750 ml bottle poured into a tall curvy glass.

Appearance: Pours a very dark red with hints of purple. Lots of bubbles floating up. Surprisingly translucent for the color. Big off-white/tan head dissipates fairly quickly, but leaves little to no lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell: Berries. Honey. Sweetness.

Taste: That's... different. The honey and berries are there, absolutely, but are very much balanced by the hops. It's got a little bit of a bitter bite to it that plays very well with the sweetness. I don't taste the 11+% ABV at all.

Mouthfeel: Very clean. Doesn't linger at all.

Overall: I'd refused to try another Rogue after the Pumpkin Ale incident last October out in Virginia Beach until I saw this. It's pretty nice overall and makes me more willing to try more Rogue varieties again.
