Rogue Roguenbier Rye Ale, 5.5% ABV, 25 IBU. Pours medium viscosity and light black, with a one finger tan head that left decent lacing. Nose is sweetness and rye, taste is sweet rye, with some breadiness, and no notable bitterness. Excellent mouthfeel and overall excellent. Very drinkable, going down fast. I always expect rye to be bitter but this sure isn't - very nice.

Bottle to point glass. Appearance: muddy water brown. Small head with grey-white color. Very different look.
Aroma: rye is apparent, but weak in strength.
Taste: malty, brown sugar, bread, faint touch of cacao.
Feel: a touch flat and watery, but easy drinking.

Pours a dark amber with a tan head with good retention.

Smells of floral hops, sweet malt, and earthy yeast.

Bright citrus and floral hops followed by nutty sweet malt with bread and caramel. Finishes dry and earthy.

From notes taken 03/23/16:

Looks like root beer in every way, from the deep copper brown clarity to the apparent high, prickly carbonation and the fizzy, foamy, medium-retention tan head. Mild vegetal aromas, some light spicy, phenolic, rubbery, and estery notes, caramel suggestions. To the taste, incredibly metallic and phenolic throughout, some spice, some earthiness, mildly sweet/tart, nice roasty, smokey, almost meaty finish and aftertaste. Subtle peppery retro-olfaction. Medium-bodied, packed with creamy, velvety smooth suds, tingly only for the first second or so of each sip, gulp, or quaff. Comparable in different ways to a Scotch Ale, or a Belgian Dark, among others.

I see bomber. Bomber say rye. I buy bomber. Split bomber with rye. I mean wife. Rye!

The pour is dark brown with a beer-concealing white head. The nose is big peppery rye backed with a shot of root beer & fall nuts. Odd. Appealing? Let’s see.

Roguenbier Rye - over 2,000 reviews & this is my first roggenbier, how is that even possible? You’d think I’d have fallen into a roggenbier puddle by sheer accident at this point. Nope. As noted in the nose, rye is all over this brew: moderate spiciness & a lot of earth. Tinge of smokiness, mint, & subtle herbs that don’t quite gel together. Mouthfeel is a bit watery, to the detriment of the brew. Half a bomber is plenty.

Odd beer. I’m not sure if this is representative of the style, but it doesn’t hang together for me. Just OK.
