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 cabrůn..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 Iíve 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 werenít for the previously mentioned negatives.

On tap. This beer is one of the richest beers I have ever had. You know how if you eat regular chocolate then have some dark chocolate, you notice the profound difference in the richness of the two. Well, thatís how this beer compares to just about every other beer Iíve had. I was imagining a bowl of toffee ice cream in front of me when I had this, and it made me wonder why bars donít serve ice cream. In this case it seems like it would be a perfect match. The aroma and taste are reminiscent of hazelnuts but also toffee, caramel, and Kahlua. The body was medium and just about where it should have been for all the sweetness. Just a little bit of hops to finish it off and dry it up. Can this brewery do no wrong? Every product of theirs Iíve tried has been wonderful. This is no exception.

Some dark roasted chocolate flavors. Distinct brown ale. No head and very little carbonation. Nutty flavors come through. A good brown ale.

Very enjoyable because a lot of flavors come through. A bit watery in the middle, but a nutty, chocolatey taste lingers on after itís gone.

An excellent brown ale. The aroma is fantastic. Pours out to a dark brown in the glass with a light brown head. Taste is indeed nutty, with a perfect blend of hops and malt. It got better as it warmed up. This brewery knows beer.
