Small sample at beer tasting at From The Vine in Lewis Center, Ohio. Dark, slightly murky brown. Aroma nutty with vanilla and toffee. Flavor lightly malty; nutty; prominently hazelnut; vanilla; caramel. I would describe the mouthfeel as cool and wispy; unfortunately quite thin and watery. Easy to drink. Like drinking a chocolate cookie. Unique and pleasant.

Tough to imagine a better brown ale. Bomber. Pours with a decent head that quickly dissipates. Dark brown but not black in the glass. When you take a sip, the first thing you notice is the nuttiness, then a coffee sensation takes over. Carbonation is adequate, not overbearing. I just want to keep drinking and drinking it. And maybe I will.

The aroma has hazelnuts with malt and some chocolate. The appearance is dark brown with a small head. The flavor is not bad. It has hazelnuts and malt with a light spicing. The palate is too thin. This was a great idea that could stand to be just a bit better but not bad.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2006
pours amber brown in color with a tan head, aroma is chocolate malts, hazlenuts and coffee-like, the flavor is sweet and resembles the aroma, chocolate & hazlenut coffee flavor, with a small amount of bitterness from hops, not a bad brew.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Bomber - Sold as Morimoto Hazelnut Brown - Pours a very dark reddish-brown in color with a medium tan head that quickly disappeared to a quite small rim around the glass. Aroma is malty and sweet with hints of coffee, chocoilate and very faint of hazelnuts. Flavor is thick with caramel, coffee chocolate and (of course) hazelnut. Some underlying hopiness (excellent!) Body is quite thick for a brown. Thoroughly enjoyable... well worth repeating... my favorite Rougue Ale so far....

This beer pours a deep brown color with a deep tanned head which absolutely overflowed out of the bottle and all over my countertop...thanks Rogue...small amounts of lacing on the sides of my glass. The aroma is obviously coffee and hazelnut with a hint of chocolate and hops. The flavor is as full bodied as you can possibly expect from a brown ale with coffee and chocolate flavors extremely abundant but having caramel and hoppy undernotes as well. It leads into a caramel/nutty finish with a medium degree of carbonation and dryness. I need to face the fact that I’m not a big fan of brown ales, but this isn’t all too bad. The thickness of the chocolate flavor increases dramatically with the warming process.

ATOmemphis (200) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - JAN 9, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2006 Very coffee-like. Gobs of hazelnut which i found very enjoyable. Distinctive flavors of Rogue beers. Very deep colored. Will drink this again, definately. ADD-On: My second bottle had a distinct soapy taste to it, so I poured the remainder in a second glass...same taste.. Dissapointing, though I’m eager to have a third go at it.

Draft. Pours dark, dark brown with no head. Aroma of coffee and hazelnuts. Taste is smooth and sweet, with the obvious hazelnuts. Backed with coffee and roasted malts flavors. Decent enough to have again.
