Beautiful rich deep red-brown beer. The hazelnut tones are not overwhelming, but subtle and linger in the palate after the beer is down. Small lasting head, moderate carbonation. The palate is complex, a rich nutty flavor with a coffee base and a little sting in the back of the throat. Long lasting nutty palate with a lingering aroma of hazelnut.

A dark brown ale with a foamy off-white head. Upon opening the bottle I noticed a strong, pleasing aroma of with a hint of hazelnut that begs 'drink me'. This nectar starts out with nutty, slightly sweet flavor that goes down smooth. This is followed by roasted hop aftertaste. This gets my vote as the best brown ale around.

A damned good brown ale! Not nearly as sweet as some of the reviews here would lead one to believe. There is a strong hop character to balance the malty profile of this winner from Rogue.

Shag (2584) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 13, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2004 Probably the best brown ale out there. Pours a dark brown with minimal head. Flavor is nutmeg, syrup, toffee, and caramel. A little bit of a thin body and a touch too much carbonation but this is still a very good beer!

Redish brown in color with a full leathery head. Leaves a nice lace on the glass. Chewy malt taste with a decent amount of brown sugar flavor. Hops are only present to take any extra sweetness off of the malts. One of my favorites from Rogue.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 10, 2003
Dark mahogany with a rich mocha and hazelnut aroma. Medium bodied with roasted malts and balancing hops. Very delicious and drinkable. I usually don't think much of brown ales, but this one got my attention. Great stuff.

I dont like this artificial Hazelnut flavor in my coffee and I hate it in my beer. Gonna have to go against the grain on this one based on personal tastes only. Otherwise its a decent brown. Medium bodied with a slight nutty sweetness that isnt from the harsh extract/syrup.

Frank (2754) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2003
Lovely dark garnet brown color. Decent head, mostly diminishing with some lace. Very mild aroma, nut much there but a slight hint of brown sugar and a whisper of hazelnut. Brown sugar sweetness carries this beer into a rich, nutty middle and pleasantly bitter finish.

Hoss (607) - Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2003
Certainly an excellant example of brown ale without the usual hop bite of the west coast, I did not find any flavor overpowering but thought it had a pleasant balance(this good). I like other american browns better but would recomend thus one

Pour is dark brown, with a thick tan head that quickly settles to light lacing. Aroma is strong on the hazelnut, backed up with lots of roasted and toasted malts. Flavor is overpowered with the hazelnut, quite sweet (maple syrup?), with a hint of the roasty malts peeking through at the end. Mouthfeel is full, a bit sticky.
