22 oz bottle. Drank after I defended my dissertation, 4/11/06. Poured a dark brown color with a small head. Basically, this is Nutella beer (for those of you who have had Nutella, a chocolate hazelnut spread). The sweet, nutty aroma almost scared me away from this one, but the more a tasted, the more I liked it. All in all, I say this one is pretty excellent. Rogue rocks!

Surprisingly little body to this beer in the mouth. The sensation somehow seemed completely limited to the nose. Nothing unpleasant about it though.

The 22 oz bottle poured a slightly hazy, dark mahogany brown colored beverage with a small off-white head that was mostly lasting and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma had a decided aroma of hazelnut, grassy hops and roasted malts. This one had a medium body with lively carbonation and a slightly thin texture although there was an alcohol warmth in the finish. The flavor started off with a sweet and nutty presence that lasted through the medium-long finish.

The commercial description is perfect. I would include sweet coffee aromas. You think itís gonna be sweet from the aroma and front end flavors but to my amazement it stays totally dry. This is a very interesting brew. The color is a rich brown with a splash of red creating a slightly tawnied blood hue. Pours a chocolate milk colored froth that hangs around for a while. Overall; a very rich and aromatic brew that is ballanced. The finish is smooth and lingers.

OK, first "full" description Iím gonna try. I donít dislike it as much as the total score suggests, let me start with that. Itís AWFULLY flat, first of all, with a bit of coffee scent. Texture is thin, almost watery. Just an odd flavor to me, probably just not my cup of tea, but I guess my expectation was something a bit thicker than what I got.

Nice mahogany colored brown ale from a 22 oz bottle. Rich complex aroma included hazelnut, coffee and a blend of other aromas that I can only desribe as "sweet". Sweet malty taste with a definite hazelnut quality. Very subtle hops influence. A little flat and watery, but pleasant overall.

Pours a deep, opaque brown from the 22 oz. bottle. Antique white colored head and lacing are awfully thin. Hazelnut aroma is present, but not overwhelming. Hazelnut flavor is pronounced with nice malty finish. Almost no hoppiness to it. For me, thatís a plus. On the weak side palate-wise, but somewhat crisp.

letters (5) - Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2006 does not count
a favorite, pours with a thin ephemberal head, with a subtle aroma that reveals little of its sweet, enchanting taste. With elements of hazlenut, mocha, honey. Has an amber appearance, and is thin and delicate within the mouth.

IrishBoy (4102) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 2, 2006
Ebony brown with a thin tan head. Aroma has a little malt, a little hazelnut, and a hint of mocha. Flavor is malty with a background of hazelnut, and a hoppy bitter finish.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - APR 2, 2006
A dark red color with no head. The aroma is crisp and reminds me of a fresh (not skunked) Newcastle, but there isnít a lot there. The flavor on the otherhand is very strong with the hazlenut. A pleasant suprise. Very smooth and not very heavy. Wonderful with my pizza.
