My locals (including my out-the backdoor neighbor) have really been stocking up on Rogue! Love, love, love it. Especially when, as I walk in, they are so proud of the new beers they have in stock. Freshness is occasionally an issue, but not in this case.

From the bottle: "A lively seasonal ale, assertively hopped, dark in color and festive in taste."

I poured gently as I could see at least a modicum of sediment in the bottom of the bottle and I still got a finger of deep-tan head with excellent retention. Color was a deep ruby-red with cola highlights. Beautiful! Nose was "like chewing on pine needles" as one wag recently said to me. Har! Wow, was the the taste gooood! We/I recently postulated on the pairing of Girl Scout cookies and beer and this would either be like gilding the lily to the Thin Mints or a perfect accompaniment. It was medium-bodied, but it had a beautiful marriage of chocolate/coffee malt and wintergreen hops on the tongue. Gott dang! It suddenly struck me as more of a dessert beer, like in lieu of a Grasshopper, but samey same. OMFG, I would totally lay this on a lotta people that claim not to like "hoppy" beers. Phuckin' phenomenal! Finish was clean and dry, like a deep breath on the mountains. Try some today!

Pours a deep, opaque, stout-like sable with a nice tan head that leaves behind some average lacing. Aroma is seriously hoppy, having a firm evergreen tone like fresh-cut pine wood. Bold flavor has considerable hoppiness and some bitterness with woody and earthy notes and just a hint of caramel. Firm-bodied texture is fairly fizzy and leaves a tingly, slightly smoky finish. Go mad!

On-tap at the brewery in Newport, OR.

Pours a deep red colour, quite clear, with solid weight behind it. Head is yellow tending to beige, and forms a solid ring. Fine, but arrogant carbonation. Who knows what I mean by arrogant.

Nose is big and juicy and sweet. Toffee comes through strongly, with touches of stewed dates, rum and brandy. It's Xmas pudding in a glass: heavy and sweet, no doubt about it, but with solidity and purpose.

Light toffee entry before a big welling of sweetness and more booze than expected hits mid to late in the picture. Dates and prunes come through along with a dusty roasted character that melds towards a slightly cutting astringency at the end. This helps clean out the palate from that clinging sweetness, leaving a very harmonious if cacophonic whole.

Feel is exceptionally smooth.

Drinkability: well, I'd think it was too heavy, but it's not huge overall. At only 6.6% it's actually light enough to drink more than one, and the awesome depth and complexity ensures you want more than one. Love it.

On tap at Ramunto's in Lebanon NH. Served in a standard pint alongside two specialty pizza slices for a cool $10. Reviewed from notes taken this evening.

A: Slightly hazy brown/ dark copper brew shows red highlights against a light. Thin light brown head.

S: Fairly intense and very balanced, a bunch of malt and a bit more hops. Hops are a mix of herby, citrus, grass. Malt is bready and brown sugar, like a crisp brown ale.

T: Great mixed hoppiness of mixed citrus rind, pine, a bunch of florals and fruits. Malt backbone is bread and brown sugar, slight caramel and vanilla notes. The finish is residual hop, candied cherries, cinnamon, apricot.

M: Medium/ medium-heavy body, great balance. Good carbo, mostly dry finish with a bit of hop resin.

D: Great! Very tasty. Alcohol not apparent but it feels like approx 7%.

This brew pours a dark amber,red colour and almost looks like brown creaming soda with a nice two finger foamy head and heaps of nice lacing around the glass,the aromas are coffee,herbal piney hops and a touch of kiwi fruit,it has a weighty mouthfeel although its just weighted nicely enough to easily have another sip after another with tastes of piney,herbal hops the first thing i taste followed by a nicely balanced middle body of caramel,toffee malts that really smooths out the tailend of this beer to make it not really that bitter as i was expecting with the 7 hops that they have used i was expecting a big bitter bomb right at the end but not at all and to be quite honest this has to be one of the best balanced beers that i have had and if you come across this brew i highly recommend you buy a few of them as im going back to my bottleshop tomorrow to buy more,definately a top class beer.

On-tap at Woody's City Market served a dark amber almost brown with a decent light-tan head. Aroma is pine hops and burnt caramel. The taste is a nice blend of burnt caramel, burnt toast, and bitter pine hops, paired with that distinctive Pacman yeast characteristic, this is a very tasty brew. The beer is medium bodied with smooth carbonation. I must admit, being from North Carolina I hold all Winter Warmers to the standard set by Highland Cold Mountain Winter, and while the style had a wide range, this one is likely the best on I've had that's on the hoppy side!

An interesting beer, this is. 22oz into standard pint.

A- A dirty-penny copper with a brown sugar head, 3 fingers. Great lacing, well-formed head, good staying power. Nice all the way around.

S- Sweet, mildly roasted malt, cinnamon, and a faint coffee kicker. Pretty hearty.

T- Whoa! Deep, rich, heavy flavors. Like black coffee, a hint of cinnamon... deep dark malts grown in the Marianas Trench. Incredible depth of flavor from the malt. I am impressed. Impossibly flavorful. Hopped a fair amount, but the strength of the malt is what kicks your teeth in on this.

M- Thick, heavy, but superb carbonation leaves this one feeling crisp and easier to drink than you would think from the magnitude of the flavors.

D- High. One is more than enough, but I really, really, really like this beer. I will buy some more... congrats, Rogue... this beer is a home run!
