MayorQuimby (100) - Santa Barbara, California, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Bottle. Medium brown aroma, light tan head, though not much remnant lacing. Aroma is nutty, good malt aroma, good balance to it. Flavor has a nice amount of maltiness, chocolatey and caramel notes hanging in the background, not too much hopiness. The hazelnut flavor is the main feature, it really ties everything together well. Medium body, carbonation might be a little high, but the nut flavor hung around and coated my mouth. A nice beer, and an excellent example of the style, an enjoyable beer.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2005
Pours well, brown in colour! Small beige head. Aroma of rich toffee/caramel, nuts, chocolate and raisins. Flavour is sweet chocolate and caramel, balanced out with a mildly bitter finish. Some fruity notes evident. Not bad, but nothing special.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2005
Pours a clear reddish brown color with a thin offwhite head. Mild aroma of malt and hazelnut. Mild flavor of malt and nuts, the finish leaves a chalky and dry feeling. Light to medium body, soft carbonation. This is a major let down, I used to love this beer but now either my tastes have changed or the quality of the beer has gone downhill.

Roachie (13) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2005
Pours beautifullywith a deep reddish brown body and a beige head that tends to discipate rather quickly. The scent is subtler than is to be expected considering the powerful flavour. Strong hazelnut/chocolate/caramel flavour that goes down beautifully smooth and leaves a tart feeling on the sides of the tongue. My one critique is that this beer was a bit too carbonated for my liking, that was not enough, however, to ruin the truly awesome taste of this beer. THis beer tastes like it should be served as desert!

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Pours a dark mahogany color, small off white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, and some nuttyness. Flavor is nutty, almonds, caramel, very sweet, but not over the edge. Very nice!

dwyerpg (4918) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 12, 2005
Smells if faintly alcoholic, faintly malty, but light overall. This is a quite refreshing beer, and really not that heavy. The hazelnut flavoring is light, but noticeable and the right amount. rogue is quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours a nice golden brown with a small tan head. Smell is overwhelmingly of hazelnut wth nutty malty overtones. Light sweetness in the nose, hints of vanilla or almond? Taste is much like the smell. Roasted malt followed by overpowering taste of the hazelnut extract. Lightly sweet and lightly smoky. A surprising bitter hoppy finish with a lightly malty aftertaste on the tongue, then you are tasting the hazelnut again. Hints of nutty vanilla or almond too. For me, the strong hazelnut prevent it from being really drinkable but it is still very smooth. A complex and tasty brew. Definitely not my favorite from rogue but I would not hesitate to try it again.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2005
Dark brown. Nice fluffy head. Moderate carbonation. Robust chocolatey nutty aroma. Man this stuff really smells great. I didn’t know what a hazelnut tasted like until I took a drink of this. I like hazelnuts. The choclateyness really works well with the nuttyness. This medium bodied beer seems to stick around in you mouth for a while. Man this is good. Probably the best Rogue ale I’ve tried so far.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head. Very sweet aroma with coffee and chocolate scents. Very smooth. Malty tases with a surprising amount of hops at the finish. Very nice brew.
