Everything was greatuntil the aftertaste, which was all hazelnut. It was way too much. I would not purchase this again, which is a disapointment, because I am a big fan of other rogue beers.

Wow, quite nummy. I have no idea what to use as a benchmark since I've never had a hazelenut brown before, let alone ever had hazelnuts. I'm just calling it by what I think of the taste and not by any style. Pours a dark redish-brown, like a dark-stained mahogany color witha nice head, but not much lace. Smells quite nutty and malty. The taste is very good. Nutty, duh, and also malty and sweet, but without going overboard. It has a nice coffee aftertaste with some fruits in there as well. I'm detecting prunes almost. Mouthfeel is thicker than I was expecting and rather good with just the right amount of carbonation. Drinkability is good. This would be a perfect dessert beer.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2004 A dark brown with a frothy head that reduces to a nice lacing. A sweet hazelnut aroma and a complex nutty flavour dominate this wonderfully full bodied beer. A very sweet hazelnut aftertaste. Smooth and delicious.

Medium size tan head, ok retention. Pretty, clear , red/amber color. Nose of cola, malt and the hazelnut. Medium body. Some roasty flavors hazelnut and hints of chocolate. Finish is dry, thin with a slight nuttiness. One of Rogues lesser offerings i,d say.

pondoshuffles (141) - Fitzroy Harbour, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2004
A tasty enough ale with a deep brown head. A sweet, aromatic aroma leads to a rather sweet, flavour almost balanced by hops. Smells like some flavoured coffees I've had at the Second Cup. A very good beer, if a tad on the gimmicky side.

22 oz Morimoto. Creamy brown head over deep ruby brown ale. Even in snifter the aroma is hard to pin-point. It is sweet though, very much like the taste, but in a complimenting way. I like the candy bar description used by radiomgb . The chocolate, toffee, caramel (sugar) blend is perfectly balanced by the hops. A very relaxing (though filling) beer!

radiomgb (2143) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2004
Dark brown in colour. Aroma was almost non-existent at first but as it warmed I noticed some sweetness, caramel and chocolate. Flavour had loads of caramel and chocolate - like the galaxy caramel chocolate bar - very smooth, cream, and a fair amount of sweetness. Finish is a very smooth creamy rich bitterness. Fantastic. Thanks beerhugger for sharing this bottle with me.

Couldn't get an aroma at first but as it warmed it was sweet with a touch of caramel. Couldn't find traces of hazelnut anywhere exept perhaps in the warm dark brown colour. Drank like mixing sweet caramel and chocolate in your mouth - absolutely fantastic flavour, with only one caveat or critique - perhaps this beer would be too sweet to enjoy very much of in a sitting.

SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2004
This is a very flavorful brown ale that has a hazelnut finish to a rich nutty brown ale. One or two are very pleasant, but I don't know if I'd want to drink several at once - maybe a little too much of a good thing. Very good beer all the same.

I really didn't like this one. Too thin and watery. Hazlenuts came on too strong when warmed. Struggled to finish this. Judging by the reviews here I must have got a bad bottle... I'll re-rate it if I pick it up again.
