Rogue Old Crustacean Barleywine


Type: Barleywine

Brewery: Rogue Ales Brewery

Brewery Location: Newport, Oregon (USA)

Location Purchaced: Yardhouse - Waikiki, Oahu (draft)

Comments: This beer is toffee in color.  It has a sweet and stout like bouquet with hints of toffee.  There is toffee to taste but mainly it’s bitter.  Eating bitter melon, knock you on your butt after a few sips, bitter...With a hint of toffee.  Not sure what to think.  Good in very small quantities, but hard for me to handle an entire pint. Also adding to the bitterness is that the Old Crustacean has twice the alcohol as a normal beer.   My suggestion is to share one with a friend or try it before getting one for yourself.
