ROGUE NEW CRUSTACEAN BARLEYWINEISH IMPERIAL INDIA PALE ALE SORTA

On tap at Shepherd & Knucklehead – Hoboken, boozy ‘cult fave’ loads intense 10.8% ABV solvency inside sharp barleywine-styled hop bomb. Lively grapefruit-orange-peach-pineapple-cherry tang immediately receives ethanol vodka-soaked respite. Resinous pine needling and aspirin-like medicinal astringency deepen gnarly bitter aspect. Not for faint-hearted soft palates.

ROGUE HAZELUTELY CHOCTABULOUS

On tap at Poor Henry’s, delightfully decadent ‘candy bar in a bottle’ blends Rogue’s Hazelnut Brown Nectar with its Chocolate Stout. Up-front chocolate brownie fudging allows toffee, crème brulee, Tootsie Roll, cacao nibs and vanilla illusions to sweeten its lingering dark-roast hazelnut core while light hop charred peanut shelling adds contrasting bitterness. Pleasant caramel-burnt chocolate truffle finish will please any bittersweet-toothed dessert freak.

ROGUE SHAKESPEARE STOUT

Blessed award winning stout with creamy coffee-stained signature, thick doughy yeast permeation and outstanding grain-sugared malt combination perfectly suited for such a wonderful ebony-bodied treasure. Roasted barley crispness, toasted oats sweetness, black chocolate richness, and black cherry scurry increase unforgettable resilience while crustacean earthiness underscores burnt molasses sinew. Nitro version allows creamy molasses sapping to deepen hop-charred roasted coffee bittering and supple black chocolate rampage.
