UPDATED: MAR 21, 2005 Warm leather brown hue and thin almond colored head that fizzed out rather quick. Nose is a regular brown ale styled and has traces of sugar and caramel malt. Flavor is delisicously nutty and is made up of brown sugar, caramel and hazelnuts. Also has a sweet syrup and toasted malt taste. The best brown ale i know of.

Pour is a brown with a creamy tall head. The aroma and taste are extraordinary. Just plain outstanding. A sipping beer to be sure, but totally delicious.

billk (353) - Coeur díAlene, Idaho, USA - AUG 17, 2004
bottle 22 oz. Field rate (paper cup). Morimoto was on the bottle. Mostly clear brown w tan head. Aroma is spicey malt w mild hops. Flavor is creamy malt w a cocoa and mildly spicey hazelnut tang. There was a sharpness (alkaline taste) and a touch of thin & watery to the mouthfeel. Perhaps it was an old bottle. Medium bodied. This didnít appeal to me. Brown ale isnít really my style anyway.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2005 I hate brown ales. I mean I really canít tell you how much I despize this style of beer. i also canít explain to you how much I loved this beer. Pours a deep dark brown, or really a deep dark maroon. Nice beige off white head. Nose is very figgy. Also notes of stewed plums, tobacco, brown sugar and hazelnuts. Hazelnuts are very prominent in the palate. Malts are exquisite. Nice and roasty. This is a great brew. G-rat

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 Aroma is sweet creamy nuttiness. Dark brown with a light brown head. It made me say "Oh ho!" after my 1st sip. Man this stuff is GREAT! Has a good malt character with a strong sweet chocolate taste. This is complemented by a strong sweet hazlenut taste. Rich, malty, creamy, nutty, smooth, chocolatey. This is one of the best beers I have ever had the opportunity to enjoy. Unbelievable!

Very good tasting beer. A dark tasting beer with hazlenut aftertaste. Very good tasting beer. With lots of potential would buy this again.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2004
Tasted in Colorado. Obtained from a beer store in Dillon. Tasted in a shaker glass. Appearance is dark with mud like opaqueness. Thin brown/tan coloured head. Aroma has a sweet nuttiness with many layers of subtle complexity. Flavour is of intense sweet hazelnut. Very satisfying - an intense form of a standard nut brown ale. I enjoy this one very much.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - AUG 9, 2004
Bottle. Dark amber body with a loose one finger beige head. Coffee, nut, and malt flavors are dominant. Tastes like a mixture of 25% porter and 75% brown ale. Quite enjoyable.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Dark syrupy brown with a medium tan head...smells like hazelnuts...tastes like one too many pumps of hazelnut syrup in a SS Nut Brown...Rogue tries too hard to make unique beers and screws them up in the process...thick sweet malty finish...
