The gods got nothing on Rogue.

... that's because Rogue got em drunk on the best.
Got the opportunity to have the Rogue a Hazelnut Brown Nectar (Oregon) and the Publican House Square Nail pale ale (Ontario) tonight.
The Rogue was truly a "nectar from the gods" delicious. It smells of a sweet toffee. It goes down with a warm sugary sweet hazelnut taste that you can almost mistake for chocolate. Then the finish, ahh the finish. Rouge never seems to disappoint. Combine the smell and taste and add a soft nutty topping... and there you have it: Rogue's perfection in a bottle.

If it looks like a stout, smells like a stout, and pours like a stout...

It's a Rogue Voodoo doughnut chocolate, peanut butter & banana ale!
Join me on this journey of rogue flavour.
First sip, the after taste of peanut butter hit me. It was warm and almost gave me that feeling of trying to get it off the roof of my mouth.
Second sip, I tasted the chocolate on the way down.  Dark and dreamy.
Third sip, the banana came crashing through just after I had my sip.
Fourth sip, all three flavours come to the party.
I'd keep going, but after the fourth it was much of the same greatness.
You're yet to fail me Rogue. I wish I got a chance at your maple doughnut last year.
