Very dark brown in color, almost black, with a head that stays abruptly, until almost completely disappearing. A roasty, nutty flavor. Very smooth and malty. This beer is great cold, and not so good as it warms. It has an, almost, stout characteristic about it, especially in the aroma, with its coffee like scent. Low on the hops, and the alcohol comes through just a tad bit to strong, but lets not be to picky. A good brown ale, and another good brew from the boys and girls at Rogue.

i really liked this beer. it reminded me of nocello and nutella. it could’ve been a little thicker. but this hazelnut flavor is dead on.

22oz. Bottle. Not a style I tend to seek out but it came highly recommended. Disappointment ensued. It pours a reasonably attractive brown with a swiftly vanishing head. The nose is artificial nuts, maple syrup, and sickly sweet caramel candy. The flavour is not far removed though painfully one dimensional with a mouthfeel somewhat flat and syrupy. I’d have a hard time finishing a 12oz bottle of this, much less 22ozs.

Rich in flavor and complexity, well balanced and crafted, this is certainly the best of this style that I have come across.

Had a keg in my frige. It ’went’ faster than a keg of Guinness. Truly a fantastic beer. Was my first nut ale here at the house. Definately my all time favorite nut brown. Well worth the $147 I paid for the keg

Bottle (650ml). Been saving this one for a while ... Poured bubbly hazy reddish-brown with a small light brown fizzy diminishing head. Bready aroma of roast malt, roasted nuts and chocolate - a wisp of hops, and a rich, oily malt aroma that builds as it warms. Taste is sweet roast nutty malt, chocolate, toffee, a hint of grape, and just enough bitterness backing it to keep it from being runaway sweet - very doughy and rich. Mouthfeel is fizzy, average body, very sticky - okay, it’s a little watery, but still ... a damn fine and unique brown ale. And I have a whole bomber to drink! Prosit!

Pours a dark amber color, with a copper colored head that dissapates quickly. Smells like chocolate and nuts, the odor just floods the nose. It has a very distinct hazelnut taste, with strong hints of chocolate and carmel. Great mouthfeel, through and through. Very complex, and very enjoyable.

bottle, pours dark brown, with a medium head. aroma is of sweet caramel, brown sugar and nuts. taste is very unique. the hazelnut flavor is dominant. flavor is vary good, but seems slightly simple. you have to wait a minute between sips or you lreally loose the flavor and it starts to taste alot more watery. but if you have patients and take it slow, this beer will not dissapoint.

Pours a reddish brown with a small head. Smells like sweet maple syrup and nuts. It has a rich hazelnut flavor complimented by maple and caramel. It was a little too sweet but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
