Not what it says on the bottle but this is where I was directed to. Hazlenut brew that is very tastey! It has a tan look with a mild beige head. Taste is cinnamon and nuts. Very yummy brew!

Fantastic. Dark brown with creamy tan head that dissapate quickly (probably a dirty glass) Very nice nutty and fruity start with a bang of hazelnut and cinnamon finish. It was delicious and very drinkable. I’ll have another as soon as I find one. It was great.

Poured a nice dark brown with an enormous tan head that unfortunately did not last near long enough. The aroma was very malty with a very fruity note, and of course a nutty little bite. The flavor was great. It tasted like a well balanced brown ale with the essence of hazel nut poured into the bottle. Great mouthfeel, just excellent. This beer I feel is perfect for sitting back and drinking, it has the perfect flavor and is not so heavy that you can only drink a little before feeling opressed. Thank you Rogue for this fine Brown Ale.

Dark Brown. Fruit, coffee beans, hazelnut, chocolate and cream in the aroma. Fantastic flavor. The malts combined with the hazelnut provide a deep, rich flavor with notes of hazelnut, coffee, cream, nuts, chocolate, fruit and caramel. The hops are spicy but overtaken by other flavors. A unique brown ale. Very tasty.

Deep dark amber/brown, with cream frothy head. Smells of nuts and chocolate. This has great flavor. Kind of nutty, smoky, and bitter, toffee and coffee. This is a great brown ale.

Bottled, Stockholm Beer Festival.
Hazy dark brown colour. Nutty, cocoa nose. Light, smooth malty with a tang of nuts as well as a nice hop presence, making this a balanced and nice brew.

Nice dark brown colour with a fairly thin head that stuck around and left some decent lacing. This beer was very smooth and delicious. there was a hint of bitterness and I could decect the hazlenut (of course) and some chocolatly notes. Defintaly a decent beer for the winter months.
