PBOYNY (316) - Westchester, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2006
This beer was very flat, with no head and little carbonation. A thick dark ale, I didnt detect and Hazlenut flavor, and very little flavor at all. Not a favorite

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - MAY 8, 2006
deep garnet/chestnut brown color, mostly clear. light tan foamy head thatís cramy at the top. aroma is nutty chocolate malt, like raw filberts. body and mouthfeel is thin, medium to high carbonation. flavor is raw hazelnuts with their skins, and a little grassy sourness. faint chocolate malt (this isnít nutella but I wish it was) but this is more one the nutty side. finish is, bitter and vegetal - rutabagas?

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 8, 2006
Very big head on a dark copper drink. Very carbonated. Where did the head go so quickly? Nice bitterness. I quite like the nutty flavour. A little thin but very drinkable.

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2007 Small head that disappeared quickly. Caramel and nut aroma. Chocolate and nutty flavor that lingers. A little bit of toffee flavor on the end. Slightly creamy with no carbonation.

schwaiger (90) - Laramie, Wyoming, USA - MAY 5, 2006
A zinger. 22 oz bottle. Pours a very clear saddle leather brown in your glass with an off-white, fizzy head diminishing fairly quickly. When held to the sun the brew becomes beet reddish - kind of purple even. This brown has an awesome, beautiful nose with the most immediately recognizeable aromas of cinnamon, hazelnut, and maple syrup. Thereís also definately some deep orange in there; maybe some clove too. More beer huffing reveals a malty, doughy bread aroma. Iím excited to taste this. My first gulp is bliss, so I forget to take notes and finish half the bottle. Predominant flavors of dark chocolate, maple, and honey and a perfect balance of the sweet and tart. Nice, full, creamy body with soft carbonation and a long, lightly bitter finish that left me smiling without realizing it. Not a trace of alcohol in the smell or taste. I gulped down the second half of the bottle and made a note to buy a couple more cases. Caressingly smooth and infinitely satisfying - this is the best beer Iíve had all morning.

piscator34 (2344) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 1, 2006
Dark brown in colour with medium carbonation, but poor head retention. Malty aromas, along with the typical Rogue pacman yeasty touch. Initial flavors of munich malts and a bit of soft fruit give way to the more drying chocolate malt and nut flavors. I think itís more sesame than hazelnut. Thereís a bit of a sour twang on the finish that I didnít really like.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2006
Hazy, rather than cloudy, dark reddish brown. Principal note in the nose is indeed hazelnuts. Taste is sour brown, and with so many kinds of malts I think muddied Mahler rather than symphonic Beethoven. Not so much complex as unfocused. Thin and dry in the mouth. Better than the sub-elements makes it sound, but not my favorite from Rogue.

DuffMan (9541) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 30, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2007 Clear nut-brown, modest tan head. Sweet and toasty, nutty caramel and shortbread cookie aromas. Big nutty character up front, a little milk chocolate, lots and lots of caramel malt flavour. Thoroughly enjoyable with a high density of flavour makes this one of the best brown ales Iíve ever tried (can Rogue do no wrong?).

TrevorFloyd (309) - Connecticut, USA - APR 28, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2006 Not as creamy as I expected, a little bit more bite, but the hazelnut flavor is phenomenal. It comes through strong but it doesn’t overpower, and it’s just as sweet and tasty as the name suggests. I wish it were creamier, but it’s still delicious.
