Brew Review #18 – Rogue

July 9, 2010 was the 18th (!) Brew Review.

A few of us gathered at Rogue for the usual beer tasting, food eating, and camaraderie.

For some reason, I took almost no pictures this time – including NONE of the beer sampler! For shame!

The beers:


  • The gazelle: super delicious, all oregon-ingredients, very good
  • The architect: very good

Brutal IPA

  • The gazelle: hoppy, not too strong
  • Emily: too much!

Menage a Frog

  • The gazelle: ewwww…..too weet, too much honey
  • Andrew: I like it!

Double Dead

  • The gazelle: not as good as the original

John John

  • the gazelle: I like it! It’s fresh & green tasting!

Hazelnut Brown

  • YUM! from everyone
  • Emily – it tastes like Christmas

Snickers (1/2 hazelnut + 1/2 chocolate stout)

  • OMG! Thanks for the recommendation, Lisa!

    Ooooh, that Snickers sounds wonderful. Those are two of my favorite brews. What a great idea!

    Looks like a fun time! Sorry we are losers and everyone hates us now =). I can’t believe there is a picture of that and not one of the beer sampler, what kind of brew review was this?? JK

    What’s the next “R” on the list?

    Also, very cute picture of you E and C at the end.

    You’re too cute.
    I wish I was there. I am just starting to get into beer again. It started in Kentucky with “Bourbon Beer.” It’s pretty much the bestest beer in the uni.
