2.12/5  rDev -42.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

Pours a dark reddish-brown. One finger, light tan colored head. Some haziness.

Fruity aroma with some cherry, raspberry, and gooseberry. Some herbal notes to go with honey and candied sugar.

Very unpleasant flavor. Bitter sourness, over cooked vegetables and rubbing alcohol.

Mouth feel is horrid. Perhaps the worst I've ever experienced. Oily, bitter, acrid, and noxious on the tongue.

This has a pleasant appearance and a decent but unremarkable aroma. Unfortunately, the flavors are nothing like nose and the mouth feel was gag worthy. This was a drain pour. (574 characters)

4.12/5  rDev +11.7%
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. (808 characters)

A very dark beer for what I'm thinking is a fruit beer, though the definition of braggot doesn't specify fruit. The pour is a dark brown, cola colored. Dirty tan head up top, with better than average retention. No lace to speak of. Great looking beer.

Pretty amazing smell with lots of spices and fruity flavors, a whiff of alcohol and caramelly malt. Smells like a fruity, dark Belgian.

The taste matches the scent characteristics, full of fruity, spiciness with some caramelly malt and alcohol playing along nicely. Again, think fruity, dark Belgian beer. Dark ripe fruits, not the girly stuff.

Way up there ABV provides warmth throughout. This beer packs plenty of sweet, offset mostly by the spices and heat from the alcohol for balance. Bitterness is there, but only as a bit player. Medium- to heavy-bodied, but somehow it starts off with an almost watery feel before everything kind of takes over. Carbonation and heat make up the lingering finish.

In addition to the cool purple bottle, this Rogue beer provides plenty to like. I could get used to this. (1,079 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a finger of head on a purple body. Interesting.
The aroma is Marionberry pie with barley. Pretty good.
The taste is quite sweet overall. Lots of Marionberry flavors and honey. Good balance though but the hops never quite make it through.
The texture is soft and a little creamy.
It's an uncommon style and this is an enjoyable drink. (339 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours a purple hued brow, looks scarlet when backlit, with 2 fingers of tan head. Pretty nice lacing & head retention,

S: Berry notes, plus clover honey, herbal & medicinal notes

T: Berries mostly tart, dryness, a bit of woody bitterness & little boozey burn with honey notes up front. Honey & floral notes as this warms, some medicinal notes as this warms, some red wine notes as well, especially dryness, woodyness & some tanin. Finishes dry, tart, herbal, with a little bit of berry sweetness & a kiss of honey

MF: Fairly hefty with slight carbonation, becomes a bit slick as it warms

Fairly complex, but drinkable enough, probably the best example if this style I can remember having (697 characters)

Pours a dark purplish brown, interesting color but that's about it.

Smells like grape candy and alcohol. Blech.

Tastes like grape candy, Robitussin, and oxidized malt. Bad, just bad.
Harsh feel, the booze is obvious and it's rough. It's like grape flavored four loko meets sloe gin fizz. Pretty nasty. Glad this was a post-party freebie, I'd never buy this. (360 characters)

A: The beer is hazy purple red in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that has good retention properties and hardly died down.
S: Light to moderate aromas of blackberries and honey are present in the nose; the berries seem to become stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but the flavors of marionberries are stronger than those of the honey.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The honey in this beer makes it a slow sipper but for the most part it isn't overly difficult to drink because the alcohol is well masked from the taste.
