Brewer’s Ale 2008

Difficult to be absolutely sure if this is the correct listing for the beer that I had at lunchtime today, but for now I think it may be for the following reasons;
1. I drank it at Summit’s in Snellville which has a “special” relationship with Rogue.
2. The one other review seems to resemble what I drank.
3. It was listed at the bar as “Brewer Ale”.
Anyway, a very dark brown pour with a pretty lively, frothy head. The head eventually settles down to yield some nice, spotty and creamy lace. The beer was served in a frozen glass (what the HELL is wrong with these people), so the nose was tricky to pick up, but it was hop-based (perhaps a hint of citrus pine a la Rogue).
Tastes have some malt upfront with a hint of chocolate powder, but as per usual with Rogue the hops take over and kill the ending. It cuts across the ending and leaves a very severe bitterness.
I dunno, the whole Rogue experience on draft seems to end up this way for me way too often. It seems harsh and metallic in the end, and is ultimately rather disappointing.
