Pours deep amber red with a cap of light tan head. Quite dark for a brown ale, but held up to the light it still has a nice sparkle. Aromas of toffee, fresh clean yeast with subtle fruitiness, some spicy notes, and maybe a hint of hazelnut. Or maybe a hint of the power of suggestion. Honestly, given the name, I was definately expecting a blast of hazelnut extract. But itís not there, and I think I like it better that way. It doesnít seem like a "flavored" beer. And speaking of flavors. Rich toffee flavor with some good understated hop bitterness. Initially sweet, but with a dry, clean finish that keeps it from feeling sticky in the mouth. A very smooth, well-rounded beer.

Deep brown in color with a thin white head. Subtle nutty smell with some malty and hoppy hints. Sweet rich nutty taste without much else there in regards to taste. Long lasting sweet nutty aftertaste. By far the best brown ale Iíve ever had.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2006 Probably the best brown ale iíve ever had. This beer erupts with flavors of, you guessed it, hazelnuts and nectar. Slighty fruity aftertaste which is hard for me to like, but rogue pulled it off in this case.

Sesame aroma. Nice amber brown, with a tan head. SUPER toffee and hazlenuts. This is awesome! My new favorite brown ale, bar none. Amazing stuff. This will get an elaborate rerate sooner or later. Aftertaste and palate are smooth, buttery and overly nutty. Good stuff! Hops do a nice balancing act.

Better than average, but not spectacular. The aroma of nuts is very appearant, feels a little watery, malt is reconizable. overall. I like this, but I had better

hmmm, complex. Iím not really sure how to describe the flavors here. It fit the style and name as an excellent brown with a very subtle hazelnut flavor. Probably more toffee and chocalate. Very smooth and complex. Must try again.

Iíve never had a bad Rogue product, but this one may be the best. If I count correctly it has 7 different malts; itís easy to notice something new with each one. When my wife sees the empty bomber bottles in the basement it makes her send me out for more.

Bottle. Medium brown aroma, light tan head, though not much remnant lacing. Aroma is nutty, good malt aroma, good balance to it. Flavor has a nice amount of maltiness, chocolatey and caramel notes hanging in the background, not too much hopiness. The hazelnut flavor is the main feature, it really ties everything together well. Medium body, carbonation might be a little high, but the nut flavor hung around and coated my mouth. A nice beer, and an excellent example of the style, an enjoyable beer.

Pours well, brown in colour! Small beige head. Aroma of rich toffee/caramel, nuts, chocolate and raisins. Flavour is sweet chocolate and caramel, balanced out with a mildly bitter finish. Some fruity notes evident. Not bad, but nothing special.
