Appearance: slight haze in brown fill, dark amber hue. Medium light top. 3-
Nose: Moderate sweetness, caramel with brown malts, oil with light dark chocolate and fresh bitter hops.
Flavor/Palate : Medium light bodied , considering noted 14 Plato definitely light on substance. Chocolate brown malts sitting in centre, slight bitters on sides. Top carbonated almost frisky. Enjoyable brew but lacking extra element.

Nut brown color with little head. Strong nutty aroma. Sweet and nutty flavor. Smooth on the palate.

(as Morimoto edition) Beautiful brown with nice head. Hint of hazelnut in the aroma. Initial flavors of very slightly sweet malt. I expected a nutty finish but BAM--it's like drinking ground up pecan shells. Blech. Maybe I just had a bad bottle.

The best brown I've had, I think. POured a deep brown, nearly black, with red halo. Nice thin little head rests on top. Flavor is malty sweetness, nuttiness, a bit of grass, then a great hazlenut aftertaste. Many times, I've often wondered if hazlenut syrup would work in beer, and if this is an indication, I would say it does indeed.

Probably my favorite Brown ale. Nice deep brown color with a lasting head. Silky smooth on the palate, with lots of nutty malt character. Aroma is a perfect balance of hops and malt. Very well done.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 18, 2003
Clear medium brown. with a tan head that disappeared almost immediately. Thin body. Very sweet nutty smell; hazelnuts, pecans, walnuts and caramel. The taste was initially chocolate and caramel, but the hazelnut flavors came on strongly mid-taste. Finish was surprisingly bitter.

I had the Morimoto version of this. The guy on the label (not the tool pictured on the pic up above) has this look on his face that seems to say "this is some good effin' stuff!" This has a wicked huge malty taste and is an amazing beer.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Dark brown with ruby edges and a thick tan head. Chocolate, toffee and hazelnut aroma and flavors. All flavors get richer as it warms. Very nice balance of sweet malts and a slight hoppy finish. This is one tasty brew!

carboloader (660) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Pours transparent dark brown/ruby. Large tan head lasts a while with nice lacing. Aroma is chocolate, signature Rogue hops and malt, and some alcohol presence. Flavor is same but with delicious roasted nutty flavor, but not too strong. Some might find it watery but I like it. Very smooth finish and easy to drink. Not too sweet for a brown ale -- very tasty. Nothing offensive here. I would buy again. Rogue continues to impress me.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - DEC 13, 2003
Dark brown approaching walnut, soapy head, little aroma, not much to speak of in the mouth (some malt), but when you swallow. . .aftertaste kicks up the back of your throat and hits the roof of your mouth with a hammer. . .a Hazelnüss Sahne hammer. Apart from that, it's pretty ordinary. No astringency, no roastiness. Good, but not great.
