Draft. Had this one at Rolandís in the Strip in the Burgh. Great large head (even with the slow old waitress) and a creamy off-white foam with excellent lacing. I have a feeling that this will be a great one. Cloudy and brown, with almost streaks going through it. Nose of sweet toffee, vanilla - lots of vanilla and I guess some hazelnut as well. Taste is like no other beer Iíve ever had... nutty, honey, vanilla, semi sweet and great creamy fully body with a very light if any hop addition. Being a hop-head, I am surprised at how much I love this brew. It is simply a great beer. I canít wait for another.

Very smooth brew. Simply an all around amazing beer. Aroma is of fine cut hazelnuts. A bit rich, but if you like it that way, then itís perfect. Get out there and find this beer. You will enjoy.

Beerbistro Winterfest and Vintage Tasting. Mahogany colour with a thin and diminishing off-white head. Nutty, fruity, cherry, caramel, and molasses aroma. Chocolate, amaretto, nutty, coffee, and lightly fruity flavours. Light bodied and somewhat watery. Overall, less than the sum of its parts, mainly due to lacking mouthfeel.

Dark amber. Light beige-grayish foam. Sweet, malty, lightly roasty, hazelnut aroma--though not overly pronounced. Medium-thin, highly carbonated. Surprisingly bland (for Rogue), sweet, malty, slightly artificial hazelnut flavour w/ some mineral notes. Also somewhat cloying.

Bottle. Nice nutty aroma. Ruby brown color. Decent head, color is off-white to tan. Slight lacing. Nice hazelnut flavor. Coffee hints also. A little thin would be the only fault here. Very nicely done!

11.06.04 This just had such a smooth nice nutty flavor, that it just went perfectly with my enormous babel-esque stack of white chips while playing texas holdem with biznizness and a few other ratebeerians last night

Just a fantastic brew. Deep, rich hazlenut flavor. Nice and creamy and sweet. This is beer candy.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2007 The first hazelnut beer I ever had was a Longshot Hazelnut Porter from the Longshot contest that was recommended by a bartender in Durango, CO. I have been in love with the flavor ever since. This is an exceptional brew, and if you are lucky enough to get it, then GET IT!!! Tastes just as advertised- immediate rush of hazlenut but with a coffee-like finish. Extremely well-balanced on all fronts.

Sweet beer, with a nice dark brown appearance and a tan bubbly head. Smoooooth... Has a lot of characteristics similar to their line of stouts but with a smotheringly fantastic aroma of hazelnut and brown sugar. Malty, not too brutal on the saaz hops which is a fine balance. A very popular choice from Rogue!
