Draft. Dark brown with nice size tan head. Smells mildly of roasted malts. The taste is creamy, nutty, and buttery. How does rogue get that buttery flavor in some of their beers? Nice body and smooth finish.

Not impressive. Too many nutty things going on here. Aroma of slight nuts and dirt which morphs slightly over the palate to a generally bland taste. Once you start this, don’t change your palate with another offering... it’s all or nothing.

Poured a dark brown with a thin fizzy head from the Morimoto Hazelnut bomber. Smells slightly nutty, roasted, fruity, no hops. Chocolate flavor, you can definitely taste the hazelnuts. Creamy texture, despite the watery appearance. Clean and smooth on the palate. Very nice beer, nutty but different than other roasted nutty beers.

Bottled at RBESG-06, GTN. Hazy, brown beer with an orange hue and a beige head. Mellow roasted aroma with caramel and sugar. Roasted and caramelly flavor as well, with spces and notes of dried fruits. I could use some more body. The finish is roasted and bitter in a pleasant way. (060826)

Dark muddy brown color, very small off-white head. Nutty, roasted aroma. Sweet hazelnut flavor. Medium-bodied. Very long nutty, hazelnut aftertaste.

(Bottle) Pours brown with a good-looking beige head. Sweet malts dominate the flavor, but it is by no means cloying. Relatively high level of carbonation. Rich mouthfeel and pretty smooth as well. Definitely a great beer!

Bottle. The best brown ale I have tasted in my brief career. Hands down more body, flavor, taste and aroma than other browns. Very sweet, very nutty, very malty. Delicious - a must try!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I really enjoyed this beer. On the pour, creamy with a small head. Very dark and translucent. Aroma of carmel, coffee, nutty, and toffee. Initial tastes are slightly sweet, a complex mix of carmel, toffee, little bit of chocolate, maybe some fruit in there. Slightly bitter on the palate, but very refreshing. The flavor is incredibly balanced, and delicate. I dont agree with the posts that say this beer is overpowering or unbalanced, because its not. This may be a drink that you’re average beer drinker wouldnt like, but I think its great, and well deserving of the 95% it received.

It was dark brown and cloudy with a quickly disappearing head. The malt flavor seemed stronger than a classic brown and the hops were about what I expected in brown. The overall effect was unbalanced, perhaps influenced by the uncompensated nut sweetness

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz. bottle from THE beer store in Jacksonville: Total Wine. Pours a nice dark brown with a light tan head. Aroma is sweet, with a hint of hops. Flavor is KICK ASS. Nice taste of chocolate and hazelnut. Finish is nice. Without a doubt, THE best brown ale out there. They should put this in a six pack.
