UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 Aroma of sweet chocolate and caramel, nice sweet first taste, right amount of carbonation. Intense aftertaste is very nutty, with slight bitterness. Drank this tonight with my roommate PrinceofNessus. rerate: too sweet, oily AND watery and quite simple.

Nice taste though a bit bitter. The head is thin and quickly disappears.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2006 The best brown Iíve had. Very sweet aftertaste. It puts other brown ales to shame.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2010 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, nuts, toasted bread), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), moderately yeasty (mold, cheese). Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. This sample had a strong and unpleasant moldy/cheesy note that all but ruined the aroma. Rancid nuts maybe? Rather dirty aftertaste too.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2003 This is so good I'm having trouble rating it because I'm gulping it down so quickly! Pours out of the 22 oz bottle a very dark brown color with a great ruby red tinge. Head is a little small and dissipates quickly. Aroma has distinct brown sugar tones and a touch of hazelnut, and maybe a maple syrupy note in there too. Flavor is smooth all the way through. A bit of maltyness, no bitterness at all. Definitely sweet flavor, but just the right amount (not overly sweet or syrupy). Overall very delicious. I like brown ales, and this is the piece de resistance.

Sweety nutty aroma. Frothy tan head. Good brown color. Smooth easy drinking. One of my favorite Rogues so far. Well done.

Hazlenut, chocolate, toffe are all very evident. A solid beer with a nice malt accent and it is the lowest hopped Rogue Iíve had yet--that was good and at the same time a little disappointing. Nut brown character seems rather artificial; it bothers me that there is extract added.
