Dare*Risk*Dream
For a microbrewery anywhere in the US these notions are true. Rogue slowly growing as a recognizable symbol of this craft brew movement, particularly in the Northwest, is an encouraging site to see in Winnipeg, let alone Canada - a near bereft craft brew 'market'. However this beer does not strike me as overly daring though I am encouraged by all of the ethics employed to make this beer which made it to my doorstep.

A: Deep nutty brown (described as ruddy) which I can get on board with. from a long pour, a fairly fizzy head forms. Not as creamy as I would expect.

S: Heavy on the malts in smell. Doesn't scream uniqueness right away, but very nutty.

T: I was expecting more here. Hazelnut in the nose and bittering hops in the rear. Reminds me of Fat Tire at first but changes quickly. However the thinness of the beer doesn't appeal to me for the style intended. Self proclaimed as "light and refreshing," I concur, but it doesn't mean that's how I want my porter.

M: The bittering quality is what grabs me as truly "rogue" especially for the style. It leaves one dry and thirsty, which is good that this comes in a 650ml.

D: Its lightness makes it drinkable, particularly since the alcohol content is not overwhelming! It goes down well, but not as deserty or warming as I would have liked.
