Deep ruby-brown colour with a good sized mocha head. Aroma is nutty and roasty, very appetizing. Body is a little thin for the style, but not bad. Flavour is wonderful - hazelnut, toffee & roasted malt. Nice bitterness in the finish. Quite good stuff.

Easily one of the top browns I’ve had, along with Naughty GOose. Deep brown with a head that lasts. A little bit of fruit in with the nutty character. Nice long dry finish.

Wow is that hazelnut. Very strong in the nose and taste, lots of malts. Overall quite good, check this out if you can. Had it on tap at the blind pig in champaign illinois. My wife liked this a lot more than I did.

Poured a dark copper brown with highlights of dark ruby when held up to light.Decent tight bubbly head.Got to the bottom of the glass with no signs of lace.The smell had a malt dominant nose,with caramel,celery?,and some roastedness. The taste starts out with caramel, malty tones in the center,and a slight roastedness in the finish.This beer seems well balanced, and has a good clean finish.Medium body and amply carbonated.Will buy again.

Take this review with a grain of salt because I do not care for overpowering hazel nut flavor (which I find this beer has) The first few sips of this are great, and then I just find I want to flush the rest. The nose on this beer is of hazelnutt. It tastes first of hazelnut then of coffe.

Pour is a deep brown with a tan head. Aroma is wonderful...nuts and hops with a roastey goodness. Flavor is nuts, rasions with some roasted malts in there, in the end you get some hop bitternes. Another good one from Rogue!

Chestnut brown pour with lively beading supporting a medium khaki head and good lacing. Very pleasant nutty aroma with roasted malts and a touch of toffee. Smooth and silky mouthfeel and a well balanced flavor of hazelnuts, vanilla and spice. Admittadly, the hazelnut tones occasionaly felt "forced" but I kept coming back the fact that this beer just tasted great. Complimentory and long lasting nutty finish. Heading out today to pick up a few more bottles to share with friends over the holidays.

omhper (19225) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2004
Bottled. Dark ruby, average head. Nutty aroma -very aromatic. Sweet and roasty with lots of vanilla and hazelnut as well as chocolate. Clean, somewhat hard mouthfeel. Pleasant, but one-dimensional, and suffering from the same syndrome that keeps many US microbrews to enter my list of top beers: simplistic, hard, clean malt character.
