had some kick, didn't think it would be that spicy. Overall I thought it was nasty. Not at all my style, but I figured I'd try it.

Have to admit that I just don't *get* this one. It's interesting, but there's no way in which I would describe it as "world-class". And my scepticism goes well beyond my distaste for Rogue as a company, and it's not that I don't like spice (I *love* it). It may very well be an acquired taste--I get it, I love heavily peated scotch--but until I've acquired that taste, this just strikes me as gritty, earthy, smoky, and unpleasant.

A nice smokiness. Wish it had a tad more heat. But still tasty.

Had on tap. Might be the end of the keg because it was rather flat and no visible carbonation or lacing whatsoever.
