220z bottle into a oversized wine glass. no clue of the date, found 2 bottles on the back shelf of a outa of the way liquor store with lots of dust on them.
A- Black ; as in pitch black opaque. Does not look cloudy. Poured it formed a 1 finger high cocoa colored head that fell pretty fast, left a nice frothy ring around the glass.
S- Roasted malts, chocolate (like chocolate licorice), slight coffee, lots of raisin, plum and dark fruits. Smell is fairly sweet but very nice.
T- Roasted Malt , slight coffee and chocolate sweetness up front that turns to a dark fruit sweetness in the end, with a faint bitterness that kind of finish's it off.
M- Hmm, medium body with the first drink that turns watery after it hits the tongue, slightly creamy with a decent amount of smoothness to it. Little bubbles that linger which you cant see in the glass.
O- My first Rogue beer, pretty good so far, has a very good nose that is better than the taste, but the taste is good, so no disappointment here.
