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

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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?

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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.
