Rugen combines an intricate malt bill with the subtle influence of our oak Foeder to produce a brooding take on the regional specialty of the Baltics. Brewed with a balanced measure of beechwood-smoked malt and rested on American Oak for over 2 months, Rugen is a sipper that opens as it warms. Pouring a near black, notes of smoke, subtle anise, and molasses waft from the glass. Tastes of raisin, dark chocolate, toasted brown bread, and lingering oak. Rugen finishes with a smooth and velvety mouthfeel.
