Thanks to Fatty. Pours a reddish brown with a small tan spotty lacing head. Aroma of nuts, honey, caramel and brown sugar. Flavor of nuts (hazelnut), creamy, caramel and a general sweetness. If you like hazelnut coffee give this a try.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2006 Bottle rated November 19th, 2005 - Pours reddish brown with a fully receding. Aroma is toasted malts, plums, slightly vinous, with a nice toffee balance. Taste has lots of sweet toasted maltiness with a bit of the raisin/plum character. Faint notes of chocolate and vague hop bitterness linger barely under perception. One of the few beers deserving of the "Nut Brown Ale" title. Mouthfeel is medium bodied but has a slight stickiness. Quite enjoyable.

Dark brown ale with a golden tan head that dissolves quickly. Taste of dark chocolate, almond, and obviously hazelnut. This beer definitely reminds me of an iced hazelnut coffee, maybe even a little mocha. I like the uniqueness of the taste, but canít decide if Iím a fan or if it is just something different

Brown/auburn in color with a light tan dissipating head. Strong nutty aroma. Mouth fills with the hazlenut taste, and leaves a nice impression on the palate. Very malty. I wish there was a little bit more spice, that is the only thing I see keeping this fro mbeing exceptional.

Nothing too fancy here, but a nice alternative to the crazy hoppy beers so popular right now.

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.
