4.13/5  rDev +6.2%

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.

My first try of a new style. I'm psyched because a little internet research reveals this as a very old style of beer stemming from Wales, as mentioned in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle from 852 A.D. (levying a certain tax or fine on a property holder- among other things, Welsh ale is distinguished from "fine ale"). The Welsh name is rendered "bragawd".

The label lists 17 ingredients, mostly produced by this brewery. These include: 2 varieties of honey, several of homegrown malt, Munich malts, homegrown rye, "Rebel" hops, "Pacman" yeast and "free-range" coastal water.

Poured from a 750 ml (25.4 ounce) crown cap bottle into a shaker pint glass. A moderate pour produces about 3/4 inch of a creamy white head with a tinge of crimson. This reduces fairly quickly to a thin coating of froth. The beer is a deep ruby brown, a bit hazy, with high carbonation.

The aroma really develops as you sip it, and as it warms. At first, the aroma is very clean and only faintly berry-like. As sipping progresses, the aroma becomes much more complex and perhaps more obviously berry-like, but never overwhelms. The flavor is rather malty, with a strong backbone of molasses-like flavors and dark fruit. Accentuating the malt is a complex, dark berry taste that is not overly sweet or fruity. Strong notes of medicinal plum and dark cherry probably stem as much from the malt and yeast as from the marionberry additions. I notice fermented honey flavors more in the initial sips, but I believe it provides yet another "backbone" and is very well integrated. The alcohol is well-hidden and serves to accentuate the fruit, malt and honey flavors.

A dangerously easy drinking beer, and quite possibly the strongest beer I have yet sampled (although technically not a straight beer, but rather a mix of fermented malt (beer), honey (mead)- and possibly also fermented marionberry? (wine). A great attempt at an old and scarcely known style for which this brewery deserves applause. Bravo!
