Rogue Morimoto Black Obi Soba Ale

Rogue Ales

USA

Helluva name, yes? This is a "signature series" beer according to their website, a beer created with Chef Morimoto, who I gather is famous via "The Iron Chef". I don't get cable, so I'll take their word for it. But I'll also say he should stick to food. This poured a cloudy orange in the glass--not at all a color you expect to wind up in your stomach. It smelled sour, and tasted the same. Supposedly roasted buckwheat gives it a "nutty sweetness". It gave me a desire to pour it out and have a Bridgeport IPA instead. This was a novelty beer I won't try again.
