The best brown I've had, I think. POured a deep brown, nearly black, with red halo. Nice thin little head rests on top. Flavor is malty sweetness, nuttiness, a bit of grass, then a great hazlenut aftertaste. Many times, I've often wondered if hazlenut syrup would work in beer, and if this is an indication, I would say it does indeed.

Probably my favorite Brown ale. Nice deep brown color with a lasting head. Silky smooth on the palate, with lots of nutty malt character. Aroma is a perfect balance of hops and malt. Very well done.

Clear medium brown. with a tan head that disappeared almost immediately. Thin body. Very sweet nutty smell; hazelnuts, pecans, walnuts and caramel. The taste was initially chocolate and caramel, but the hazelnut flavors came on strongly mid-taste. Finish was surprisingly bitter.

I had the Morimoto version of this. The guy on the label (not the tool pictured on the pic up above) has this look on his face that seems to say "this is some good effin' stuff!" This has a wicked huge malty taste and is an amazing beer.

Dark brown with ruby edges and a thick tan head. Chocolate, toffee and hazelnut aroma and flavors. All flavors get richer as it warms. Very nice balance of sweet malts and a slight hoppy finish. This is one tasty brew!

Pours transparent dark brown/ruby. Large tan head lasts a while with nice lacing. Aroma is chocolate, signature Rogue hops and malt, and some alcohol presence. Flavor is same but with delicious roasted nutty flavor, but not too strong. Some might find it watery but I like it. Very smooth finish and easy to drink. Not too sweet for a brown ale -- very tasty. Nothing offensive here. I would buy again. Rogue continues to impress me.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - DEC 13, 2003
Dark brown approaching walnut, soapy head, little aroma, not much to speak of in the mouth (some malt), but when you swallow. . .aftertaste kicks up the back of your throat and hits the roof of your mouth with a hammer. . .a Hazelnüss Sahne hammer. Apart from that, it's pretty ordinary. No astringency, no roastiness. Good, but not great.

(Bottle) Pours a brownish color with a medium sized head. Delicious flavor of hazelnet, chocolate, and coffee. A nice treat.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2009 2009-01-22. Dark brown body with a modest tan head that fades. Mild malt aroma, muted nuts and malted milk. (6+) Flavour is sweet with very light roasty touches to the malt, fruit-nut character, very light bitter accents, slightly odd aftertaste. (6+) Average plus palate. Bottle make be getting a bit past its prime, its not as good as I remember. 6/3/6/3/13-14Bottle from LCBO

Re-Rate Nov 3 2004 Nice caramel red-brown body, with a good sized beige head. Sweet malty aroma with a touch of nutty undertones. Aroma is muted somewhat. Sweetness of the malt is balance by a touch of bitterness and the nutty flavours which linger on in the aftertate. Ever so slight roast nuts. Hazelnut definitely shows up more prominently in the aftertaste. Palate is decent but thinner than seems fitting. Nice beer but not mind blowing. Thanks for the bottle Tupalev. 6/3/8/3/16 <P>Original Rating Body is a nice dark colour, flavour is complex and nicely sweet a lingering nuttiness especially in the aftertaste. Deliciously creamy on the palate. 6/3/8/5/16
