Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint glass. I tried a moderately aggressive pour and miscalculated, producing a billowing, overflowing light brown froth. The beer itself is rather a dark ruby brown, and quite effervescent. The head proves moderately sticky.

I get a good whiff of smoky malts and herbal hops as I urgently suck up the overfill. A distinct smokiness is also apparent on the palate, along with a good bit of spice and a dark cherry sourness. The flavors all smooth out, leaving some lingering herbal hops and a touch of licorice. The smoke re-asserts itself now and then, but does not overpower. Surprisingly smooth finish with pleasant burpiness.

This is a well-balanced brew (despite my misapprehensions about Rogue's smoked malts) and perhaps a good an introduction to this style, which I had not tried before.

From a fresh growler this beer is a mostly clear reddish-orange-brown, translucent due not to haze but color. The tan head reaches one finger and is sparsely bubbled at first but settles to display a good density. Webby spotting is sticky on the glass.
Not being completely new to the style but not particularly familiar either, this one takes some work to sort out. It has a bit of earthy smoke in the grainy malts that isn't woody, per se, even more interesting since a distinct woody notes comes out separately. Malts are thickly bready, and there are some dark fruits, though it's also peppery. It gets pretty herbal underneath.
The flavor doesn't deviate much, though it changes the order of things a bit. Both pepper and dark, grainy breads come out up front, dark fruits as well as a hint of banana not far behind. A touch of steely mineral runs underneath. I get some leaf attesting to a hops and a bit of tartness in the finish. The light smokiness remains a constant below it all.
It's a bit too heavily carbonated in a medium body. It gets crisp but can't fully achieve a firm bite before the carbonation gives way to a smoother undertone. It thins out some in the end after it gets a little tinny.

A: Poured from the bottle into a Duvel tulip glass. Body is hazy brown with a small greyish head on top. Some lace on the glass.

S: Mild brown bread, earthy hops and rye spice.

T: Brown bread, a touch of smoke and modest rye spiciness. A bit mediciney and phenolic with some cardboard as well. Finishes with some tannic bitterness.

M: Light-to-medium bodied, modest carbonation. Feels a bit watery.

O: I don't know much about this style, but this version doesn't impress.
