Getting to try this long-awaited brew from Rogue on Masters Sunday 2010. Hopefully the beer is as good as the golf.
APPEARANCE: Pours into my Victory willibecker deep brown to black with a huge, frothy, light brown head. It drops a bit initially but still holds on to its full, firm cap.
SMELL: Not a whole lot, but the main aroma is coffee unsurprisingly. There's a hint of some chocolate in the background, but that's about it.
TASTE: Big and balanced, but lacking some interesting character. The rich caramel and burnt malt character is equaled by a firm but nearly flavorless bitterness. Coffee dominates the finish and finally lends a luxurious quality to a beer that really wants it.
MOUTHFEEL: Big, thick, and full, and cut nicely by an actively higher carbonation. Somewhat unstandard, but it works.
DRINKABILITY: Just fine. Not something I'd want several pints of, but a 750 will do well for a long afternoon and evening.
Not bad, but not exceptional. The coffee isn't overdone, which is nice, but the rest of the beer could still come up and match it.
