Several new beers from Rogue are available at Craft Brew.
One of ’em is John John Hazelnut Ale. Named after two Johns.
When i last checked out the range of Rogue beers, the Hazelnut Brown Nectar, the base for John John, was one of my faves.
This brew spends six months in barrels that were used to age rum. Tried it recently, it’s quite yummy, a lil sweetish with nutty hints. ABV is 5.6%.
Another addition is the Double Chocolate Stout, flavoured with bittersweet chocolate. This one’s in your face, full and robust. There are sweetish, cocoa aromas. In the mouth, it’s creamy with a long bitter finish.
Morimoto Black Obi Soba sounds like some Jap lizard dish, but it’s a beer with specialty malts & hops, making it full and crisp.
The McRogue Scotch Ale was also tested. This comes in a little bottle, and is malty, hearty Scotch ale.
There’re various food options that can be paired with the beers there, and the staff can give recommendations. I usually sink my face into pork ribs. Always works.
