Dark amber color. Sweet and smooth with a hint of honey. It wasnt as nutty as I expected. It had a very interesting tang to it.

Pours transparent brown with ruby overtones. Tan head clings to the side of the glass. The aroma is hazelnut coffee and hops. The first sip made me say wow now there is something different. The flavor is amazing. The hazelnut flavor really comes through in the first sip. I let the glass warm a little while reading some of the reviews here and I think that was wise. This is bursting with goodness from a style that I usually find quite drab. There is also malt and some roasted flavor and even some vanilla. I think it is very balanced and while it isn’t too thick it feels good in the mouth almost buttery. This is my favorite nut brown ale now. My first rating of a Rogue beer as well and I must say I’m quite impressed with this one.

Boutip (5025) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2005
Bottle: Poured a dark brown color ale with a foamy dark head with average retention. Aroma is nutty from the hazelnut flavour and malty with some roastiness. Taste is quite enjoyable with the hazelnut easily identifiable and roasted malt balancing everything else. Overall, I would say that this is a very good session beer.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - APR 23, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2005 This nectar pours a translucent brown with an enourmous tan head that slowly dissipates. Lots of sweet, enticing nuttiness in the nose. Great, smooth mouthfeel. Caramel, chocolate and other candied flavors blend beautifully in the body. A bit thin - but no real complaints.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2005
Pours brown with ruby tones as well. Thin beige head. Malty, fruity aroma. Not much of this carries through to the flavor. Hazelnut, coffee, vanilla, and toffee in the flavor. Kind of thin on the malt in the flavor for a Nut Brown.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2005
650ml bottle from Utobeer. Pours dark brown with reddish hues. Aroma is suprisingly smoky with sweet malt and nuts. Flavour is sweet with unpleasent sourness and some stale malt character. There is some sort of nut evident but the beer is dominated by unpleasentness. Meh!

Probably the best of the micros. Still not that great. This is pretty much a glorified Newcastle.
