ancherrera (162) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Tasted like Frangelico. Not nearly as much aroma as you would expect though (very light and almost non-existent. Not nearly as sweet or as heavy as I expected. In fact, the mouth feel was a little watery. I thought it tasted and smelled delicious. Not what I think of though when I think of a brown ale. I would buy again and again but must be drunk in the right context. I think it would be difficult to pair with foods other than desserts (although it’s not that sweet). I really enjoyed it.

Pours brown with a thick tan head that is moderately diminishing. Nose is cream and hazelnut. The flavor is the same, with a nice coffee balance and hops at the end. Sweet and creamy, very good mouthfeel. Not many bubbles. Yum.

Blackish and ruddy dark brown that was clear until I poured in the brown yeast. Head was light brown, but receded to absolutely nothing after not long. Inviting aroma of toasted hazlenuts, bourbon, vanilla, and a little woodsmoke. Packed with flavour: hazlenut, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, roasted and rauch-malt. All said, it has not been lost that this is a sweet brown ale. There is some faint hops flavour and a tiny bit of bitterness. Medium to full body with low to mild carbonation.

Hazelnut extract nose that is extremely overpowering. Sweet almost cloying on the palate. Roasted malts clash with the extract, almost a pvc type flavor at the end. Vanilla and hazelnut finish overly sweet.

This has the most complex flavor of any brown I’ve ever had. Pours a clear brown, smells like hazelnut, coffee, toffee. As the beer warms up, the flavors really come out. This is definitely a sipper. Delicious!

This is a wonderful brew. Tastes of chocolate and coffee--almost like a frappucino with Bailey’s. Dark, with a creamy mouthfeel. This is good stuff.

bottle. opaque mahogany colour with a small white head. lots of sweet milk chocolate aroma, some roastiness and a hint of hazelnut. flavour is much better than the aroma displays. smooth, malty, nutty, roasty. medium body. the nutty finish is spectacular. great beer.

WOW! John Maier has out done himself with this brown ale! Seriously amazingly executed. Smooth from the first sip to the last. Questionably the best ROGUE!
