Dark amber. Light beige-grayish foam. Sweet, malty, lightly roasty, hazelnut aroma--though not overly pronounced. Medium-thin, highly carbonated. Surprisingly bland (for Rogue), sweet, malty, slightly artificial hazelnut flavour w/ some mineral notes. Also somewhat cloying.

Bottle. Nice nutty aroma. Ruby brown color. Decent head, color is off-white to tan. Slight lacing. Nice hazelnut flavor. Coffee hints also. A little thin would be the only fault here. Very nicely done!

11.06.04 This just had such a smooth nice nutty flavor, that it just went perfectly with my enormous babel-esque stack of white chips while playing texas holdem with biznizness and a few other ratebeerians last night

Just a fantastic brew. Deep, rich hazlenut flavor. Nice and creamy and sweet. This is beer candy.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2007 The first hazelnut beer I ever had was a Longshot Hazelnut Porter from the Longshot contest that was recommended by a bartender in Durango, CO. I have been in love with the flavor ever since. This is an exceptional brew, and if you are lucky enough to get it, then GET IT!!! Tastes just as advertised- immediate rush of hazlenut but with a coffee-like finish. Extremely well-balanced on all fronts.

Sweet beer, with a nice dark brown appearance and a tan bubbly head. Smoooooth... Has a lot of characteristics similar to their line of stouts but with a smotheringly fantastic aroma of hazelnut and brown sugar. Malty, not too brutal on the saaz hops which is a fine balance. A very popular choice from Rogue!

Delicious brown ale. Nectar of Hazelnut. Another fine beer from Rogue. They are my heroes.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2005 Bottle. Wonderful dark brown body. Subtle nuttiness in malty aroma. Medium tan head. Mouthfeel is on the thin side, but silky as well - a beautiful blend of maltiness and nutty flavour. Not much hop presence until the end. And then after that, you really get the hazelnut after you’ve put your glass down and contemplated. I really enjoyed this brown ale - a little more body and it would be perfect for the style. Had this at the Rogue pub in San Franciso in November 05 and loved it even more - it seemed to have much more body and was bursting with flavour - easily the best brown ale I have ever had and even better than the 4.1 bottle I originally rated. Bumped up marks for aroma, flavour and overall by 1 each.
