Rogue Mogul Madness Ale

Rogue Mogul Madness Ale

Ratebeer 3.48 87th percentile
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +4

Wow, it has a super big malty nose that is more like a doppelbock. Other pleasantries in the nose include spicy hops, roast and chocolate. The taste is something else with caramel, mild molasses and sweet chocolate. There is also vanilla in there that is enhanced by the sharp hop bite at the end. Can I also taste a bit of chalk? Must be the glass. For those keeping track, there are 68 IBUs.

Aftertaste +2

Just like a skiing injury, the taste lingers a long time. There are equal parts astringent hops, dark sugar sweetness and big earthy hops.
Alcohol Content +1 6.25%

Value +1

This is like a great dopplebock with a hoppy edge.

Ingame Enhancement +1

I am now fully hooked on Defense Grid. I hope there is a recovery program out there after I finish all the levels.
Overall 9/10

This beer has big tastes on both sides. There is the big caramel and dark sugar malts which is barely contained by the big citrus and earthy hops.

Stone Vertical Epic 9/9/9
