A very nice looking amber ale with a one and a half inch head. Medium to high carbonation. Smells semi malty with quite a bit of hop aroma. Tastes the same mild malt, a bit of hops but not highly bitter. Mouthfeel is a bit watery. A highly drinkable beer, seems low on alcohol, is pretty damn tasty, ive never had a bad beer from rogue.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy dark red with a rocky two finger off-white head. Very good head retention and lacing.

The aroma is very malty right off the bat. Lots of spice and rye character with a touch of earthiness thrown in. Pretty good.

The malt is very nice in the flavor but there is a noticeable lack of hops. More rye spiciness a earth dominates and there is a very light bitterness in the background but not what I was expecting. I think some of the earth in the flavor is from the hops possibly. Silky smooth mouthfeel but a bit chalky.

Overall, a nice try from Rogue but it barely misses the mark. If this beer had some more buttering hops it would kick it up a notch and make for a very good brew. As-is it is just ok.

Poured into a Burley Oak snifter. I realize this is an old beer and not really suitable for aging, but I got it for the bottle.

A: Dark hazy brown with a decent 1 finger head. There was a lot of head coming out of the bottle even when I opened it. Nice lacing.

S: Malty with a bit of caramel. Some crystallized sugar smells as well. No hops at all.

T: Malty with a weird flavor in there. For its age, it isn't too bad, but there are no hops here at all.

M: Slightly prickly in that you can feel the bubbles structure but overall though they are still quite smooth.

O: Eh. It was all malt but with no sweetness to carry it well. Fine for what it is, especially with the age on it.

3.7/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

At 5.2%abv., coming in a 355ml bottle; BB 09/14, served cool in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: pours a dark copper colour with very good clarity, coming with a thick off-white frothy head settling slowly to a thin cap to last, on top of steady streams of mild carbonation.
S: burned caramel malts dominate the nose, with hints of roast barley, bitter chocolates, crushed roast tea leaves, and gristy biscuits; behind the maltiness, a swirl would bring up the aroma of restrained hop aroma as in dried citric hops and peachy-flowery notes, while esters remain at the lowest-possible level, apart from a light tinge of plums or other types of dark stone fruits. More well-balanced with a good depth than being complex.
T: lightly effervescent, the bitter-sweet maltiness is thick-bodied initially, not sweet at all but full of deeply-toasted malt or roast barley’s aromatic, dry-ish feel on the palate, as well as an almost toffee-ish, melted dark sugary and dried nutty aroma as in caramel/crystal malts in support underneath; the swallow also shows a subtle feed of aromatic hops, but not in such an abundance as Rogue’s other more hoppy beers, and it fast proceeds to an aftertaste which is dry-ish, herbal&nutty bitter with a chewy mouthfeel and subtle acidity in the end.
M&O: the mouthfeel is generally soothing and refreshing, given the fine but constant flows of carbonation, while the body stays moderate, fairly balanced in flavour profile overall. The flavour balance points to quite a few British Best Bitter type of beers I’ve tried in the UK, as a result I actually find this much less hoppy copper-coloured ale rather “familiar” or approachable.
