Attractive beer. First hit is clearly the nuts, with bitterness which I took (mistook?) for a mocha-like hazlenut coffee coming in after a five-second delay. Certainly nutty, although I wasn’t sure it was hazlenut as I know it, but rather something else...a bit of pistachio almost? A certain unsatisfying substructure, a bit thin yet a bit fizzy. The guy sitting next to me at the bar was drinking Bud Light, but I gave him a taste of this and he said ’wow’--perhaps a convert to good beer? I had to leave part of my glass because I was driving...that was a shame. (on tap, Flying Saucer, Addison, TX)

Aroma begs for the beer to be consumed--nutty and sweet. Brown and clear in appearance. Nut flavor lingers into the aftertaste and changes for a sweet finish. Wonderful bold maltiness. May even be better than draught Moose Drool (forgive me Big Sky Brewing Co.).

Clear brown with hint of red, medium light tan head. Aroma is sweet malty, with a hint of the promised hazelnut. Flavor is full-bodied malt with distinct hazelnut. Finshes nice and smooth, mostly sweet with only the slightest hint of bitterness.

This dark red-brown beer is topped with a thick head and has lots of lace. it has a slightly sweet and appetizing malty aroma with nutty undertones. the flavor is slightly sweet, nutty and malty with a hint of chocolate and well blanced with hops. the finish is nutty and chocolaty.

My favorite style of beer, and to date, the best beer I’ve ever had. Everything about this beer is wonderful. My only complaint is the lack of consistancy, as not every bottle I’ve had tasted the same. I also don’t recommend drinking any more than one or two of these in a sitting, it could be a bit much.

Not a huge fan of Brown ales in general, but have to say this one was pretty darn good.

Upon first sipping, I declared this to be my favorite beer. After a few more times though I have come to realize that it is not as good as I first thought. It is a good beer, don’t get me wrong. Flavor is great and aroma inviting. However it was a little over carbonated, overly malty and tasted a little silly going down my throat. Maybe I just drank too much or something else...

Great beer that screams Hazelnut. More like a specialty coffee taste than beer actually. Like the smoke ale, I could not drink too much. The overwhelming flavor makes the beer taste artificial in a way, almost like they added espresso liquer to the boil for the extra flavor. Another quality beer by Rogue though. Experimental and highly tasty.

Being a good fan of Rogue, I thought this beer was exceptional. A dark beer with real nutty hint of hazelnut. Excellent.

This is a great brown ale, probably the best I have had. Nutty flavor with a nice malty finish. Hazelnut flavor is not overpoweringly sweet. This and the Shakespear Stout are my favorite Rogue ales so far.
