Logs for beers from this brewery

Rogue Dead ‘n’ Dead (unknown release)
Good, but smooth it is not. Imagine an Oktoberfest märzen mixed with straight whiskey.
Might be my last time here, so I started with a nostalgia play. Light, sweet, creamy, chocolately. Wasn't even ruined by the nitro. Good memories.
Nitro Draft at Malt & Vine, Redmond
Can at Brunner’s
Can at Brunner’s
Grape-like. Medium thick, but not resinous at all. Doesn't hit you in the face like an "imperial," this is very drinkable.
Least favorite of the bunch. Mildly tart with hints of cocoa, but mostly just kind of blandly "creamy." Like most golden stouts, sits in kind of an uncanny valley.
Really have to squint to tell its strong, faintly fruity, but more like a fizzy liqueur but ends with a sweet corn syrup type of smoothness.
Not tart, vanilla sheen like a creamsicle. Lightly tart at the end. Maybe a little too sweet.
Dry throughout, cereal finish, doesn't taste like an IPA at all. Is there a hint of coffee here?
Brett like? A little spicy. Dry like a saison.
Lighter, sweet, I think absolutely too sweet? Bit of fruit, and tingly.
Actually, I'm really liking that. And that's despite it tasting a little skunked (this is not a great restaurant) It's a nice marzen flavor cut through with a sharp bitterness.
Fruity sour IPA. Surprisingly good.
Bottle at Home
Tastes like rambutan syrup in a beer!
Bottle at Home
God, this party is awkward. Decent enough Sam Adams-type caramel lager. More hop presence and a bit of a metallic presence make it more interesting than a supermarket macro, but I don't love it.
Bottle at Work
Roasty, toasty stout on nitro, bit of a warm, sesame-like overtone. Kind of like a Dragonstooth on nitro. Quite tasty.
Caramel coffee with light hop/yeast character. Comes off as fairly sweet-tasting. Not super in love with this, although I've definitely had worse in this style.
Just a splash, picking crowlers. Smooth, lightly sweet, definitely not as intense as most tripels. Will have to have more to tell more.
Just a splash, picking crowlers. Not especially cranberry, just a medium fruit/tart porter. Need more to get a good feel.
Amber, thick, bitter, brackish. I think the drink-it-of-free is more a matter of, I'll drink beer, whatever.
I like both of the base beers, which are light and confection-like, and the combination doesn't disappoint. It might actually be better than the separate beers (although I do love the hazelnut brown nectar on its own). Still very light, and doesn't linger on the palate.
Bottle at Odin Lounge
Mellow pumpkin ale, definitely gourdy but not much in the way of pie spice here. Just a solid, semi-sweet fall beer. Very pleasant.
Bottle at Odin Lounge
I seem to remember this being a bit sweet.
Not a whole lot to write home about .Somewhat sour but not particularly.
This was a lovely sour beer, though the lemon was perhaps a bit strong
Somehow I'd never had this before. Decent amber lager, if nothing to write home about.
Bottle at Work
Delighted that this is still very enjoyable after over a thousand beers in between. Light, caramel sweet and overtly nutty.
Tastes just like the kind of sours I don't like. Acrid vinegar flavors mix with some very weird tanginess. Tastes just like the kind of sours I don't like.
Bottle at Xbeer One
Funky smell on this one. Opens with a bit of musty sourness that resolves into orange rather quickly. The finish is mellow and sweet but never quite comes all the way back from funk.
Bottle at Xbeer One
Mostly resinous hop flavors, not as bitter as I would have expected.
Hop concentrate - lost of resin, not on the fruity side. Finish is much less bitter than I'd have expected, but this wasn't exactly one to love.
Rogue! You magnificent bastards. Somehow this was surprisingly good, and yet accurately-flavored at the same time. A creamy roast stout opening moves smoothly into a roast chili flavor with just a hint of garlic and other savory flavors coloring the spice. There's a definite heat to this, but nothing that builds up overpoweringly like the recent habanero beers I've had. I'd wanted this to be terrible, but it decidedly wasn't. As a bonus, the bottle is adorable.
Surprisingly better then what I was expecting. It's very well balanced on the first few sips. The roastiness of the stout comes first and fades into mild srirara sauce flavors and spiciness. The sriracha flavors keeps building up though, by the end its pretty much the only thing you can taste making the beer less enjoyable.
Plain stout body with spicy fringe and finish. Heat is a peppery variety versus a oily hot sheen. Okay as a sample but would not want to drink an entire bottle of this.
Corn soured-cereal smell. Thin body to sour finish.
A whole lotta booze going on. Not pleasant.
Love the bittered coffee porter taste. Dark thin body. Bitter finish bordering on spicy.
Bottle
Issaquah Frosty Frog (unknown release)
Did not like. Flattish texture with that hop / too-sweet caramel combination I don't enjoy mixed with insipid fruit notes from the raisins. Left my tongue feeling tacky and numb.
Rose flavor, not overdone, wheat mouth feel
Bottle at Odin Lounge
The rose perfume was a noticeable and constant presence in this beer, which opens floral & slightly bitter and takes a left turn into biscuity cereal before airily dissipating into nothingness. I liked this a lot more than I expected!
Strong flower bitterness but drops quickly to almost no aftertaste
Big hazelnut flavors, lighter bodied for such a dark beer. Some roasted malts follow the hazelnut start and the finish is nice and clean
Bottle at Home
Super smooth due to the nitro, great coffee and chocolate flavors, trending towards a bittersweet espresso on the finish.
Nitro Draft at Taphouse
Dry, hoppy beer that was less fragrant and fruity than I expected. Tasty with a mildly bitter finish. I guess, looking at it now, that it isn't an American IPA at all, which does help everything make sense.
Bottle
Roasted mocha coffee smell. Hazelnut, mocha, and coffee. Decently dry, clean finish trending towards bittersweet.
Bottle at Home
Hops are citrusy and fruity, not resinous, with a very minor bitter finish. As with beers centered around the hops, malt flavors are not immediately present. Yummy, fresh, great hop-centric brew.
Bottle at Home
Barely tasted like raspberry or chocolate but still decent
Bottle at Ohio
Smoother on draft than in the bottle. Both are still excellent.
Allegedly includes juniper berries. Allegedly.
All the best parts of a good porter plus some hazelnut! Goes well with popcorn and Star Trek. Or anything else, really.
Bottle at Home
The dominant impression was Double IPA, resinous and floral, but with a sweet character and minimal bitter finish. I was hoping for a more overt presence of honey, which was present but subdued. I'm a bit curious whether they brought me the right glass or not.
Drinkable & nice, like a dry apple cider crossed with a medium-spiced wit. Neither side was particularly remarkable, but light & tasty? Yes.
Cereal smell. Moderate bitter presence and malts, certainly showing off their "GYO" (grow your own) ingredients.
Bottle at Home
Had this with the Deschutes version. This is more carbonated and drier, with little fragrance at first ("funky cheese"), opening up to an IPA-like hoppy florality as it gets warmer. Much stronger raw alcohol hit, and a bitter finish. Not as enjoyable to drink, overall.
Smells somewhat funky, hard to find something pleasant with the odor. Tingly tongue experience from some bitterness. Otherwise taste isn't doing much for me.
Had this with the North Coast version. This is sweeter and maltier in both fragrance and taste, with a pleasant, almost-Belgian character. The alcohol is masked, but gets stronger over time. Very drinkable.
Sweet malt landing, finishes slightly bitter.
Polish Style Grodziskie Beer Malts: Oak Smoked Wheat Hops: Perle A/V: 3.5% Light on the tongue to start, slightly hoppy finish.
Rogue XS Imperial I2PA (unknown release)
Nice lingering bitterness.
Draft
Roasted coffee/malt finish.
Draft
Boring, like watered-down bank lobby coffee, but in beer form.
Bottle at Home
Like an Asian apothecary's B. O.
Not sure if this is technically a session IPA but that's how it seemed to me. Lighter bodied, some fruitiness from the hops.
