Medium size tan head, ok retention. Pretty, clear , red/amber color. Nose of cola, malt and the hazelnut. Medium body. Some roasty flavors hazelnut and hints of chocolate. Finish is dry, thin with a slight nuttiness. One of Rogues lesser offerings i,d say.

A tasty enough ale with a deep brown head. A sweet, aromatic aroma leads to a rather sweet, flavour almost balanced by hops. Smells like some flavoured coffees I've had at the Second Cup. A very good beer, if a tad on the gimmicky side.

22 oz Morimoto. Creamy brown head over deep ruby brown ale. Even in snifter the aroma is hard to pin-point. It is sweet though, very much like the taste, but in a complimenting way. I like the candy bar description used by radiomgb . The chocolate, toffee, caramel (sugar) blend is perfectly balanced by the hops. A very relaxing (though filling) beer!

Dark brown in colour. Aroma was almost non-existent at first but as it warmed I noticed some sweetness, caramel and chocolate. Flavour had loads of caramel and chocolate - like the galaxy caramel chocolate bar - very smooth, cream, and a fair amount of sweetness. Finish is a very smooth creamy rich bitterness. Fantastic. Thanks beerhugger for sharing this bottle with me.

Couldn't get an aroma at first but as it warmed it was sweet with a touch of caramel. Couldn't find traces of hazelnut anywhere exept perhaps in the warm dark brown colour. Drank like mixing sweet caramel and chocolate in your mouth - absolutely fantastic flavour, with only one caveat or critique - perhaps this beer would be too sweet to enjoy very much of in a sitting.

SpringsLicker (3114) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2004
This is a very flavorful brown ale that has a hazelnut finish to a rich nutty brown ale. One or two are very pleasant, but I don't know if I'd want to drink several at once - maybe a little too much of a good thing. Very good beer all the same.

I really didn't like this one. Too thin and watery. Hazlenuts came on too strong when warmed. Struggled to finish this. Judging by the reviews here I must have got a bad bottle... I'll re-rate it if I pick it up again.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Bottle 650 ml
Appearance: slight haze in brown fill, dark amber hue. Medium light top. 3-
Nose: Moderate sweetness, caramel with brown malts, oil with light dark chocolate and fresh bitter hops.
Flavor/Palate : Medium light bodied , considering noted 14 Plato definitely light on substance. Chocolate brown malts sitting in centre, slight bitters on sides. Top carbonated almost frisky. Enjoyable brew but lacking extra element.

Nut brown color with little head. Strong nutty aroma. Sweet and nutty flavor. Smooth on the palate.

(as Morimoto edition) Beautiful brown with nice head. Hint of hazelnut in the aroma. Initial flavors of very slightly sweet malt. I expected a nutty finish but BAM--it's like drinking ground up pecan shells. Blech. Maybe I just had a bad bottle.
