650 mL bottled poured into a Tulip.
A: Pours a beautiful Mahogany. The head that was poured is practically nonexistent. Even though the head wasn't much of this beer it definitely laces proudly and strong.
With the second pour into my Tulip this brew shows some more of its character. The head was much stronger, 1/2 fingered head.
S: I pondered the dominant smell of this for quite a bit. I kept on going back and forth between honey and molasses. I was close, but what it smells most like is Blackstrap molasses.
T: This definitely carries a nice malty sweetness to it. The flavor of this practically pops towards the end of the swallow. Right before the bitterness kicks in at the end a biscuit-like taste comes in. The aftertaste is definitely a delight it comes in sweet and bitter at the same time. I would even say a smoke-like quality emerges from here as well.
As this warms up it feels as if the malts take control.
M: This drink is smooth, moderately carbonated, and also holds a moderate body. This drink feels dry, but it is drinkable especially if you enjoy the smell of Blackstrap molasses.
O: After checking some other reviews on here I think I may have gotten a passed due date bottle or maybe even an infected bottle. Even though this may be possible I still enjoyed this brew. I've had other brews by Rogue, but this is my first ever Maibock. This was an experience and I recommend that everyone should at least try this brew at least once. I've seen this in 6 packs all the way to a growler. People love this for some reason and I now slightly grasp why.

A-Nice, clear golden amber
S-Bitter sour notes, a little banana, er, well not mine, but the aroma!
M-Weak subtle carbonation which is a nice complement to the style of beer
T-Wonderful tartness and a sweet counterbalance that works well
O-I really enjoyed this beer, while having very little expectation, a nice switch from my usual IPA addiction.
