Dark brown with a slight redness to it - nearly headless, but a nice ring of lace develops with the pour - nutty aroma, with hints of caramel, nutmeg, biscuity malt, and a touch of chocolate - medium-bodied, with a nice balance of malt and spicy hops - crisp and biscuity - hints of caramel of cocoa, along with some mild spices - some coffee and chocolate develop far in the back at the finish - a well-crafted, highly sessionable brown.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Pours a dark brown with a very light, quickly diminishing white head. Very roasty nose, some light chocolate, and a hint of some coffee. Taste, is somewhat mellow, but some nice flavors emerge. Pretty nice roasty malts, some caramel and chcolate show up near the end. Very smooth, quite easy drinking. I’ve noticed thats a trend with this brewery.

IrishBoy (3836) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Bottle; nose of caramel and smoke; Slightly hgazed brown with a small offwhite head, flavor of smoke and caramel; OK brown, but not a Rogue Hazelnut, the one I compare against!

Zeswaft (1370) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2007
pretty strong aroma of chocolate, smoke, and nuts. Flavor is somewhat watery. Rather smoky, a little nutty, and little woody. Perhaps one of the better brown ales but still weak. Worth the $7 a bottle. Absolutely not. Hopefully the pale ale is.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Clear brown color. Roasty aroma with some nuts and bread. Taste is very malty and smooth with just enough hops to balance things. A bit thin, but tasty nonetheless.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Pours brown with a thin tan head. Smells of nuts, floral hops, earthy hops and roses. Tastes of tarte cherries, earthy hops, some malty hints. Mouthfeel is tingly. Finish is fruity.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Hogtownharry: Poured a cloudy dark brown color ale with a medium dirty white foamy head with adequate retention. Aroma of nutty malt with light roasted malt also being noticeable. Taste is a mix between some great nutty malt with a light bitter finish. Texture is quite creamy with a nice full body and medium carbonation. Overall, I thought this was a nice tasting brown ale which is not something I usually say a bout brown ale and somewhat similar to Rogue Hazelnut.

Bottle pours a reddish brown with a thick light tan head, little lacing. Srong woody aroma, dominated by malt with hints of almond and walnut. The nutty aspects carry over to the flavor, dominating and leaving a dry bitter finish. Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. Lingering bitterness fills the mouth. Nice.
