This beer offers a nice hazelnut aroma with hints of oatmeal and caramel in the background. It is a brown solution with a cashew colored head and good lacing. This beer offers a sweet creamy taste of hazelnuts and oatmeal. This beer has a smooth rich characteristic that stays with it form introduction to finish.

Hops and added flavour. If I am going to have this, it might as well be on-tap. Colour-brown. I can see it appealing to some people and transitioning from coolers. A bit too much on the sweet side for my palate.

Bottle. Bought for my father as a sub for New Castle. (He did not enjoy it!) Pours a deep opaque brown color with a thin off white flim across the top of the beer. Aroma is very nutty and lightly roasted. There are notes of chocolate in the finish. Flavor is very nice and soothing. Notes of nut, chocolate, very light fruit notes on the tail end. Finish is crisp and clean. Very nice brown ale.

Ungstrup (34246) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2006
A hazy amber beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol and nuts. The flavor is sweet malty with primary notes of wood, leading to a dry end. I find the flavor quite boring.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2012 Re-rate - Bottle: Dark brown pour with a nice, thick tan head. Smells of maple sugar, tastes of malt, maple, caramel, and nuts. Milder in flavor than I remeber from the first go-round, but still a decent brown ale.

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.

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.
