Rogue XS 2011

Rogue XS is a Russian Imperial Stout, 11% ABV. Charles thought on first impression that it was a barrel-aged beer, maybe red wine barrels, but it is not. However, it definitely has some aroma and flavor of dark fruits, which do lend a bit of a red wine quality. It also definitely has some bitter chocolate flavor on the back of the tongue. It is very smooth, almost velvety in texture. It is 87.5 IBU, but it is a roasted malt sort of bitterness that you taste more than a hoppy bitterness.
Overall, this is a very flavorful but well-balanced stout. Delicious, but strong enough that you probably don’t want to drink it all night.
If you see a bottle, pick it up and try it, it’s good!
