Nice malty brew. Great color. I really like the combo of sweetness with hoppiness.

I usually find that brown ales are more aroma than flavor, and this one is no exception. Nowhere near the quality of the Rogue Nectar Brown, but not bad. Has a bit more hop to it than other Brown Ales I’ve had.

Mmmm! This stuff is very tasty. A pleasant blend of IPA and scotch ale. Sounds wierd, considering the opposite ends of the spectrum both beers represent. What came together was a rich, hoppy, generally all around big beer. A good drink worth making a staple in the fridge. My second favorite from the brewery.

This could be my new 1 ’session’ beer. Amazing combination of flavors. Sweet yet hoppy, but unlike any barley wine. A really unique brew.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 nice reddish brown with a big light tan and gleaming head that lasts throughout..
Aroma was superbly superb carmel covered nuts..brown sugar clumps..and there aint no denying it chumps!..Damn fine aroma..
Good carmelly roasts turning nuttier than Squirrel turds on a autumn afternoon..malty goodness..its actually not really all that hoppy..but whateva..call it what you want..its mighty fine!! and a damn smooth and unnoticeable 7.2%..if you’ve ever had Rogue mogul ale..its kinda like that..shows a little hazelnut flavors at time..but definitely not as hoppy as the mogul

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2003 Alcohol in the nose, light grain. Ruby brown hue. Light brown head, edge lace. Caramel, coffee mocha, medium bodied, mildly hopped, very well rounded and hard to classify. Kinda sweet, not cloying, very drinkable and decent.

A happy hoppy beer, somewhat cloudy. Very flavorful--taste sorta like french toast. Beer just isn’t for breakfast anymore.

This is a dank brown ale is I say so! 7.2% abv is nice. The roasted carmel flavors were nice. This was a strange approach to a brown ale.

Does not work for me. Brown ales are not my favorite style and this spin, edging towards porter, didn’t help. Color is too dark, flavor too roasty/malty. mouthfeel a bit thin.

Chestnut brown in color with a head that is too thick--yet of a nice creamy, small bubbled consistency. The aroma is subtle, carmel and malt-like. The alcohol in this beer is not detectable--great balance overall.The flavor is certainly reminiscent of a a brown ale--with an offkey malty/nuttiness and a finish that is quite bitter.
