Probably the world’s best brown ale, and certainly the best in the US. Strong hazel nut malt followed by a perfect balance of hops that I have come to expect from this great brewery. No bitterness in the aftertaste, smoother than New Castle, nearly perfection as brown ales go.

Hmm. Kinda gross. The hazelnut flavor is syrupy and overwhelms everything else. I appreciate the attempt, tho.

I typically like a greater hopp character in a beer. This one grew on me the more I drank it. Dark brown color. NIce malty flavor with the right balance of sweetness. This one was dry but not bitter. All in all a very nice brew. Congrats

Outstanding. Clean and simple, round and full. Marvelous flavor. Subtle, delicate head. Gentle sweetness, with a finish like the best fresh oysters from PEI.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 8/8 & 9/16: darkness with holes of brown...lasting tanness on top...aroma kept quiet at first but started to whisper nutty secrets...
the progression of flavors from start to finish is pinche loco cabrón..It starts with a punch of non-sweet silk on your tongue...then down the center of your tongue you feel a vibrant injection of hazelnut coffee..then as it travels through your veins to your head you get a sensation that you have a mouthful of ground coffee beans & hazelnuts and chocolate morsals ♫♫ Sing a song for this one, baby ♫♫
Oh yeah!! Great choice for # 300
However, do not drink more than 1 bottle in a session..gets kinda wierd after too much..

One of my favorite beers. Not like other nut brown ales-definately in a higher class. Smooth with nice body. Dark, almost porter looking. It has a distinctive hazelnut taste in it with subtle chocolateness. Would recommend to anyone with a half a brain.

Tap at the Rogue Pub/Public House in Newport, OR. Dark brown to black with ruby touches. Laced brown head. Big hazelnut sweet flavor. Smooth and malty. Re-Rate 11/18/02 from a bottle. A nice dark brown color with a yellow-brown head. Sweet nut malty aroma. The hazelnut comes through strong the middle of the beer.

poured a nice dark brown color with good sized tan head, aroma of roasted malt with a bit of nuttiness, smooth chocolate malt flavor with a hint of hazelnut, thin but still quite enjoyable

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2006 Delicious! The strongest caramel flavors and aromas I’ve ever had in a beer. Tasty chocolate and subtle hazelnut (an added ingredient). Mild hoppiness and fruitiness. Negatives--lacks complexity and looks and feels a bit thin. Still this beer is very tasty.

Cloudy dark brown color. The nose is sweet malt and chocolate. Delicious fudgey(hazelnutty) notes make this beer, what ruins it is excessive spritzyness and iron notes. Finished sweet malty. Nice brown if it weren’t for the previously mentioned negatives.
