From Bottle

Poured brown that when held up to the light amberish color shined through. Light brown head that didnít last to long. Aroma was of faint chocolate and fruits. Taste to me was just like the Rogue Chocolate Stout with less chocolate. Some floral and nutty notes near the middle and in the finish. A little bitter toward the end when the beer warmed, also I could faintly taste the alcohol in it as it warmed.

Dark brown with a nutty flavor and smooth finish. This is the beer that got me hooked on Rogue Ales. Found it in a pizza place on Hilton Head Island and have been buying Rogue Ales ever since at Discount Liquor in Waukesha. Truly a nectar of the gods!

Bottle. Pours hazy, oaky chestnut brown with creamy beige head. Rich aroma of cappuccino, vanilla/Irish creme, chocolate, and hazelnut. Mostly sweet, creamy flavors of hazelnut and malts - like Whoppers candy. Low carbonation and velvety mouthfeel. Could use a bit more hops for balance, but creamy sweetness has its place, too. A tasty, complex beer.

Rogue attracts me with their great bottle art. Poured very nicely, with a brown tight head lacing quickly and evenly. Smell was amazing, beery, but with a hazelnut ice cream smell. The taste is odd. Iím not sure hazelnut matches the taste of hops very well. Definite caramel maltiness, not too sweet, and full mouthfeel with a hint of pleasant graininess. A bit of chocolate taste complements the filbert flavour, but the dessert taste wars with the spicy saaz hops, IMO. I think Iíd really like this beer without the adjuncts, and the adjuncts without the beer.

Hazelnut dominates the aroma and its awesome. Very smooth, buttery, lots of hazelnut in the flavor, well rounded and robust with a touch of hops. A very nice brown, and very different and distinct.

Almost black color with minimal tan head. Malty and sweet. Hints of cherries. Lively beer that sits on the tongue. Roasty, bitter finish.

Not bad, although the tatse of hazelnut faded with each sip. Good in a pinch though.

Iíve never had a beer quite like this. This brown ale seems more like a stout to me. If you are a stout lover and you enjoy hazelnut coffee, this is a must try for you.

A bit too nutty characteristics for me. Kind of earthy, not that appealing to me. A quality-made beer, but it just doesnít do it for me.

One of the best rogue beers. This beer was extremely creamy, with a tasty chocolate, hazelnut and caramel flavor. And if you donít like a good amount of bitterness in your beers (I do to a degree), this beer will do it for you. Very smooth going down. I will definitely try again.
