Rogue Ales, Portland, Oregon

  • 6.2% ABV, 33 IBU’s
  • Good and foamy, light khaki coloured head
  • Nut brown, slightly opaque beer
  • The first aroma is of fresh-baked whole wheat bread. Brown butter, caramel, chocolate, roasted nuts.
  • Slight bitter chocolate and coffee aftertaste. Bitter but also acidic.
  • Good balance. Not too sweet, not too bitter.
  • We tried mixing this beer with the Organic Strawberry Ale from Samuel Smith’s to created a PB and J beer cocktail. We mixed it 50/50. The strawberry totally over powered the nuts. Next time I would try it 75% nut ale with 25% fruit beer.
