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 (9499) - 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 I’ve 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.

Nejhleader (1444) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2006
nice almost creamy brown ale with a strong bite of hazelnut? I don’t know some sort of spice. kinda tasted like licorice to me. Any way pretty good for the style.

pstorvik (60) - Tennessee, USA - APR 25, 2006
Pint on tap. I’ll need to rerate this at a later time but I was quite disappointed with this higly rated beer. The initial sips were very medicinal - It was like the beer wench had dosed it with Robitussin. After I made it through about a third of the glass the cough syrup taste was gone and I was left with a too sweet, strangely hopped brown that to me didn’t resemble a brown in any way but the color. It was OK.

SunSkates (47) - Arkansas, USA - APR 23, 2006
Dark red with a light head. The Yeasty fruity/apple aroma reminds me of belgian beers. A slight hint of hazelnut in the aroma. Intense sweetness as if some kind of juice was added (apple juice?) Juicy fruit and spicy finish with some nuttiness. Full bodied and a bit sticky but still pleasant. Different but good.

shiroakuma (11) - Brea, California, USA - APR 22, 2006
In the bottle, nutty aroma. Pours a thin creamy head. Sweet, nutty flavor. simply one of the best brown ales out there.

decaturstevo (5757) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 22, 2006
An aroma of hazelnut, caramel, and toasted malt. A dark brown beer with a hint of red when held to the light. It has a flavor of sweet hazelnut coffee. A good finishing bitter that eases on you and lasts. A smoothly carbonated beer that the palate doesn’t weaken much as it warms.

Brown Ales are pretty much the same from brewer to brewer, but this one set itself apart from the rest by being bold, thick, and nutty. Another awesome beer from Rogue! If you like Newcastle, give this a whirl and see if you still think your precious import is the bomb.

Bottled. Pours dark brown with a thin creamy head. The aroma is a really sweet syrupy malt aroma and the taste pretty much matches. This is a medium body ale, with a slight malty syrupy quality to it that makes it a very hard to forget beer. It has a very sweet finish. Great beer!
