4.13/5 rDev +6.7%
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.

3.84/5 rDev -0.8%
A: Pours a dark reddish-light brown with crimson highlights under a solid 1-finger thick off-white, slightly pinkish head which fades to a thin cap and yields semi-rings and spots of lace.
N: Grainy, sweetness, floral, fruity berries.
T: Berries up front, mild honey sweetness, faint heat, caramel, faint citrusy hops.
M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Finishes with some berry infused heat.
O: Very unique and interesting. Creative. Like the mild sweetness from the honey, the hidden ABV makes for a dangerous long lasting bottle.

750 ml bottle into snifter; no bottle dating, but was released recently. Pours hazy nearly opaque dark brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big blackberry, cherry, red grape, raisin, plum, honey, molasses, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity and balance of dark/bready malt, honey, and fruit notes; with great strength. Taste of tart blackberry, red grape, raisin, plum, cherry, honey, molasses, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart blackberry, red grape, raisin, plum, cherry, honey, molasses, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of dark/bready malt, honey, and fruit flavors; with a great sweetness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth and lightly dry/slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent fruited braggot style. All around great complexity and balance of dark/bready malt, honey, and fruit flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
