4/5  rDev +5%

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.

4.13/5  rDev +8.4%

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.

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.
