4.13/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

750ml ceramic capped and swingtop closer bottle picked up for a staggering $22. drank out of my samuel adams perfect pint glass.

A- the beer pours out an opaque black colored body under a small coffee colored head. the head takes its time falling, and leaves behind small rings of lacing.

S- the beer smells like a stout. roasted malts are the first things to greet my nose. after that i get chocolate, caramel, and toffee. earthy hops and coffee at the end.

T- the taste starts out with some of the roasted malts that i could smell. after that i get a great combination of toffee, caramel, and chocolate. very dessert like. earthy hops and a blast of rich espresso comes in at the end.

M- the body is on the extreme upper side of medium. the carbonation is nice and subdued. moderate warming from the alcohol.

O- although too expensive, this was an enjoyable beer that i would pick up again were it not over $20.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a murky brown with a tinge of amber. Two finger tan head.

S - Sweet malts, sugary caramel and dark fruits pop on the nose.

T - Bready malts and pretty sweet just like the nose. The flavor of an old ale doesn't come across as bold as I'd like.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O - It's an old ale lite :-)

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

The pour is dark brown in color with an off-white/tan head. Sweet caramel and toffee malts with a nice creamy note to it. A hint of vanilla, bread, and some mild earthiness. The flavor is quite sweet, as expected. Toffee, caramel, and toasted bread are the primary flavors. A bit of brown sugar, some light hop character, but overall, this is fairly one-dimensional and not all that great.

Awesome looking, 750 ml ceramic swing top. Very nice.

Pours a very dark body, pretty much jet black. Big and frothy, tan head. It builds a nice defense and isn't going anywhere.

Creamy milk chocolate and hazelnut on the nose. Mocha coffee aromas. Not much else to say, but it smells great.

Creamy and nutty, with flavors of almonds and hazelnuts. Sweet, milk chocolate, with a roasty, toasty finish. Light, earthy hops are barely present. Drinks like an imperial brown ale. Very nice.

This is a perfect example of what Rogue can do, and yet get it wrong. This beer is very good, but the pricing is way off. Don't get me wrong, it was worth every penny in retrospect, but this is just priced way too high and will scare too many people away. The only reason I picked it up was because it was on sale for pretty damn cheap at a local grocery store. If you don't care about the price, pick it up! It's a great beer. But Rogue should learn something from this; you're alienating too many people with your pricing!

A: The beer pours a very dark brown. Almost like a dark soda color. When you hold it up to the light I can see a very dark ruby color. It poured with about two fingers of head that disappeared quickly.

S: Smell strong malts, caramel, and a little dark fruit smell

T: A nice balance of malt, caramel, dark chocolate, nuttiness, and a nice creamy flavor. I just keep picturing Barq's Creme Soda.

M: The carbonation gives a nice bite probably why I keep picturing Barq's. It has a nice warming sensation to my mouth.

O: a very well balanced and enjoyable brew. Its a bit pricey, but I purchased it a month ago so the sting of the price has faded in the background.
