4.13/5  rDev +8.1%
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.

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.

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.

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

A: poured into an oversized wine glass to a deep brown with some slight purple hues topped by a finger of dense light tan head that fades to a small mat and collar around the edge of the glass with some lacing
S: smells of spices, honey sweetness and berries
T: taste is marionberries, spices, piney hops, honey and malts. swallow is a little alcohol, more hops, berries, caramel and some toasted malt flavors
M: this beer has a medium weight on the palate. carbonation is soft and slightly prickly and the beer has a drying finish
O: I think this beer is pretty good. the flavors and complexity are there but it does have a lot of sweetness.

750ml bottle.

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.

Purplish brown colored concoction with a medium sized brown colored head.

Smells mildly spicy with a honey and brown sugar scent. Mild berry scent. Never met a Marion berry so I don't know what it would smell like.

Starts out bittersweet with a bread after taste. Berry with a fairly strong hop bitterness for the style. Mild honey and brown sugar flavor.

Mouthfeel is OK

Overall an OK try once experience.
