Comes out of the tap a rich, warm, opaque sable with a fairly thick tan head that leaves generous lacing - couldn’t look any better. Mouth-watering aroma fills the nose with woody, chocolate and roast malt notes. Fantabulous flavor has notes of chocolate, caramel, quality coffee and licorice notes plus hints of molasses and roast malt. I love stouts and I love Belgians, so this is a match made in beer lover’s heaven for me! Firm-bodied texture has a good amount of fizz and life. Congratulations on this milestone, Rogue! I feel privileged that I got a snort of your special brew.

Rouge 15,000 pours a black color with a nice large lacing tan head. There is a yeasty aroma with nice notes of sweet and roasted malts, and very subtle hints of coffee. The taste is nice, rich and creamy with roasted malt flavors, hints of coffee and subtle yeasty tastes. Very nice full flavors, and creamy, nice carbonation. Overall a very nice and full bodied beer.

"Rogue 15000 Brew Belgian Style Stout" according to the draught list at the bar. Served on-draught into a New Belgium branded stem-goblet. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a half finger khaki colour head of nice cream and thickness, but below average (~1 minute) retention. Solid nontransparent opaque black body colour. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Dark malts, caramel, cream, chocolate malt, milky notes, and light roast - definitely not enough roast. Moderate in strength. Appealing, but a bit simple. No yeast or alcohol is detectable.

T: Cream, caramel, dark malts, chocolate malt, and buried roast. Simple but well balanced, if rather muted. None of the flavours really ring distinct or have much impact; it lacks depth of flavour and amplitude. It's rather timid all around, a strange character for a so-called stout (Belgian style or not). I do like it, though. It's pleasant to drink. No yeast or alcohol comes through.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with some welcome creaminess. Pretty well carbonated, but not ideal. Very poor palate presence, holding back its flavours from their full potential. Too wet. Suits the flavour profile okay, but doesn't feel custom-tailored to it.

Dr: Drinkable but muted - even somewhat bland. I wouldn't get it again. A nice little stout from Rogue, but it fails to impress.

C+

Drinks okay from a goblet. I'd prefer a nonic, snifter, or teku.

Serve slightly chilled.

Poured from tap into snifter at the Ruck in Troy, NY. Pours a deep black with nice off white head. The descripion says its a Belgian Dark, but it smells like a porter/stout...roasted malts and coffee aromas. Same with flavor - no belgian here...roasted malts, coffee...maaaaybe some sweet dried fruity notes, but not enough where I would pick this as a belgian in a bling tasting. Its still an awesome brew though! Worth a try for sure...
