Pours a nice dark, and mostly clear brown, with a large tan head, leaving a good lacing as it fades. Aroma is hazelnutty, of course, with some other cappucino-esque scents coming through. Taste becomes more malty, and the feel is a lot creamier than I would expect with any brown ale. A subtle sweetness coats the mouth as well, providing some caramel and toffee flavors. With all the differen malts going into this beer, the variety of malty tastes is not surprising, but it’s still impressive. The hazelnut flavors became apparanty as soon as I swallowed, making for a real nice dessert-like finish. No real hops noticed, any bitterness seemed only to accentuate the malts. This beer is much better than I remember from my beer-tasting infancy. Kudos to Rogue for doing something real nice and smooth, and keeping the IBUs away from where they don’t belong!

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - SEP 12, 2006
On tap poured brown in color with a huge tan head with great lacing on the glass. The aroma had some chocolate and roast dominated by sweet hazelnut. The taste was mainly nutty with some small caramel tones and no noticeable hops. Overall a good tasting beer that is smooth and surprisingly not overpowering.

On tap. This beer was a very good night cap, rich with good amount of sweetness but crisp finish

Stine (1759) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2006
Pours to dark mahogany with a meringue-ish head. Hazelnut aroma with plum and vanilla. Flavor is more hazelnut, some red grape skins, nutella, some woodsy scotch tones. Winey mouthfeel, heavy but smooth. Long chocolate malt finish. Quite complex and very good brown ale.

Cold on tap at Redbones: Pours a dark opaque brown color with a small amount of off-white bubbles around the edges. Aroma and taste are of hazelnut and roasted malts. A very rich dark ale.

Bottled. Brownish amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma of caramel, candy sugar, toffee and alcohol. Flavour is plum, grass, alcohol, caramel, some flowery hops and sugar. Quite much in it, and also very wellbalanced.

Another personal favourite. I reckon it is not everyone’s cup of tea, but I do so fancy the slight sweetness and clear Nutella overtones in the taste. Some malt, as well, and so very smooth. I could session this ale for a fornight.
