Bottle sweet aroma caramel, slight roasty, with a hint of maltyness. Small light tan head that dissaprears quickly. Very thin light mouth feel. Slight bitter foretaste with a sweet hazelnut finish. Would drink again but dont belive should be rated so high.

Got a bottle of this while on vacation in Ocean City MD. Pours with a small brown head and a medium body. Aroma was malty and the mouth was nutty with tones of chocolate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Ruby brown, large foamy light beige head, very nice lacing, very light carbonation.   Grainy/nutty nose, moreso on the side of nutty, with a huge honey and even moreso Honeycomb cereal aroma.   Totally Honeycomb cereal like... DAMN!   Seems a touch too sweet for my taste, at least on the nose.   Quite sweet on the tongue, honey, malty, but quite smooth to say the least.   Big body, honeycomb cereal dominates, with a rather smooth mouthfeel.   Finishes rather sweet, malty, with loads of honey and even graham crackers.   Very slight chocolate malt profile throughout.   Good, very drinkable, but basically too sweet for my tastes.

A nice nutty twist to a tradional brown ale. Nice deep brown color with good nutty flavor. Another solid entry from Rogue.

Draft somewhere west of Portland on the way to the coast. Sorry, donít care for hazelnut flavor in my coffee, and now I find that I donít want it in my beer. Lindt hazelnut chocolate, anytime.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a beautiful hazy deep amber brown color with a small amount of quickly dissapating tanish head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, milky, and slighly hazelnut. Flavor is a sweet hazelnut, not like in a coffee, but altogether different. Slightly fruity undertone with a clean crisp finish. Overall, I found this enjoyable but I think its too sweet and lactic for me to drink more than a bomber.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Hazy brown color with a thin head. Prominent hazelnut nose. Moderate carbonation. Definite hazelnut flavor with milk chocolate undertones. At one point I felt like I was tasting a chocolate milkshake. Very smooth finish. Not for everyone, but gives some flair to the normally pedestrian brown ale style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 Hazy darker amber, moderate head, some lacing and retention. Aroma is big time hazelnut, caramel, chocolate, light hopping and other nutty notes. Medium bodied, dominated by the hazelnut flavor... almost vanilla like. Itís always interesting to look back on flavored beers like this. At one point this was mindblowing, now itís one dimensional and sloppy.
