A nice toasty ale, good malted flavor, definite nuttiness in there. Not really "sweet" despite the maltiness, a characteristic I liked. Had it on tap.

Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2003
Dark dark amber thick large bubbled head sweet malty aroma. Mildly sweet nutty flavor with a bit of toasted bread pushing the hop envelope for a brown. A marvelous brown ale the best I have ever tried

UPDATED: APR 26, 2005 Yummy... I had this one on tap in the northwest. At first taste, I wasn’t sure if I liked it. Half way through I decided this is the greatest brown ale. I am rating it so high because of the novelty and the goodness

Had this on draft at the Grey Lodge in Phila. For once a brown with flavor, I tend to find Browns boring. Good malt flavor.

Had this at the brewery. If there was a desert beer, this would be it. Outstanding complex flavor. Clearly taste the Hazelnut. This is a must have.

YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - APR 27, 2003
Nice evening with Esche and Pivo. Nutty, milk chocolate nose. Mahagony dark color with a hazelnutbrown head and a medium frothy head. Chocolate malty nutty taste. Medium lasting silky taste.

drinking too much means going nuts. Not too bad, but not very good either...

jgb9348 (4493) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2003
Darker brown colour, almost no head. Decent smell...not really nutty, but somewhat acidic. Not too strong of a taste, very mild and somewhat 'nutty'. Not a great beer. I don't like "nut brown" stylings much, and this is a good example of why. Better luck next time, I suppose!

pivo (2542) - GERMANY - APR 22, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2004 Decent nose - complex mix of malt, chocolate and raisins. Dark brown with lathery head. Very tasty indeed: toffee, hazelnut and maybe chocolate. Little pronounce hop character but a good balance overall. Creamy mouth feel at first with a dry end. A full and flavorful beer consistent with Rogue's offerings.
