Pour is a deep brown with a tan head. Aroma is wonderful...nuts and hops with a roastey goodness. Flavor is nuts, rasions with some roasted malts in there, in the end you get some hop bitternes. Another good one from Rogue!

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2004
Chestnut brown pour with lively beading supporting a medium khaki head and good lacing. Very pleasant nutty aroma with roasted malts and a touch of toffee. Smooth and silky mouthfeel and a well balanced flavor of hazelnuts, vanilla and spice. Admittadly, the hazelnut tones occasionaly felt "forced" but I kept coming back the fact that this beer just tasted great. Complimentory and long lasting nutty finish. Heading out today to pick up a few more bottles to share with friends over the holidays.

Bottled. Dark ruby, average head. Nutty aroma -very aromatic. Sweet and roasty with lots of vanilla and hazelnut as well as chocolate. Clean, somewhat hard mouthfeel. Pleasant, but one-dimensional, and suffering from the same syndrome that keeps many US microbrews to enter my list of top beers: simplistic, hard, clean malt character.

Draft at the Rogue Public House in Portland. First off, the color is stunning: a cloudy red-amber (almost cider-colored) with a nice beige-ish head. The flavor is truly like nectar, starting malty-sweet and rounding out into a symphony of spice, nuttiness, some fruit and something else I couldnít quite figure out. The palate isnít distinct, but is pleasant and delicious as it lingers. One of my new favorite beers.

Bottle. Pours garnet brown with a moderate beige-tan head. Aroma is sweet and biscuity - kind of like sugar cookies and spice. Sweet malty flavor, molasses, maple syrup, nuttiness and light spice. Medium body and nice creamy carbonation. Nice holiday ale - flavorful and delicious.

chandernagor (39) - Oak Park, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2004
This pours a dark red color, clear, with an off-white head. Aroma is hazelnut, brown sugar, vanilla, very sweet. Flavor starts sweet with chocolate and caramel, a hint of vanilla, tons of hazelnut and a touch of hops on the finish. I was afraid of a very chemical nutty taste, and was very happy to discover that wasnít the case. Nevertheless, the whole thing didnít really work for me: it doesnít mix very well and I feel like I had a simple, not very interesting beer with a strong unnatural nutty aftertaste.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2004
This pours a red hued mahogany color with a one-finger off-white head. The aroma is rich and malty, fairly sweet. Itís got a creamy mouthfeel and tasted of caramel and chocolate. The hazelnut really only comes through in the finish along with a dash of hop bittereness... a nice lingering way to remember a good drink.

Iíve really liked this beer for a while, it has this nice hazelnut and malty smell to it and a smooth hazelnut flavor that lingers only long enough. I have noticed that this beer does vary in taste from batch to batch, but generally itís always good.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2005 First off, my wife likes this which is a definate plus! Nice color, brown and ruby. Aroma of charcole and nuts, lighty sweet. The flavor is very nice (considering I usually donít like Brown ale) and has clear tasts of nuts, wood, sweet burn malts, and lite pine hops in the background. Body is creamy and well balanced. I like this and would recommend this to all who enjoy a brown ale!

Full bark brown with light brown head. Some slight sweet nutty aroma. Very nice looking beer. Flavor is interesting mix of malt, vanilla and the extract. Not as "fake" tasting as some others Iíve tried. Very easy drinking.
