Poured into a shaker pint glass.
Look: A rusty amber body holds up a thick and creamy tan head. The head doesn't recede much as foamy bands of lacing stay on the glass.
Aroma: A spicy, woody note dominates.
Taste: Very spicy and woody, with cedar coming to mind. Heavy on the malts, but there is a slightly hoppy finish. The longer I drink this the more I can taste the chocolate malts.
Mouthfeel: Heavy, creamy.
Overall: This beer is pretty thick, malty, and spicy. Good flavor but a bit too heavy for 6.2% ABV.

22 oz bottler served in a Belgian snifter.
Pours deep red-brown in color with a decent beige head. Spotty lacing.
Rich aromas with roasted grains and hops in about equal measure. Floral, fruity and toffee notes.
Flavor: has that characteristic Rogue hop flavor along with a rich dark malt mix. Mildly bitter.
Feel: medium body; lively carbonation.

It is always interesting to review a beer that most people have only just barely bothered ranking. Then you read the reviews and actually find that if you pay enough attention, that beer might be better than you've expected. Well, this is definitely one of those. Not sure what the average Rogue drinkers like as they have quite a few brews that I personally would never dare call beers but this Captain Sig's is most certainly one. A really good beer actually. It might be more appealing to the IPA crowd (like me, I'm a total hop head…) at 80 IBU's but its got some interesting caramel malt flavours too. It's cloudy, dark amber, almost born in colour with a good head that vanishes somewhat fast. The smell and taste are both slightly boozy but not harsh or anything, just enough to let you know that you are not dealing with a typical mass production brew. It has a medium body with good carbonation. This beer is good! Nowhere near my all-time favourite but one I would definitely recommend and buy again.
