Very pleasant drinking experience. This nice brown ale smells of sweet roasted malt. Appearance is reddish brown with big off white head that is fully retained. There is moderate lacing. The drinking is where things get good. This is a malty beer that is nice and smooth. A very nice break from the BIG ABV beers I usually consume.

Sampled at From The Vine monthly beer tasting Oct 13th, 2003: Kudos to Rogue for not making a run-of-the-mill Brown Ale. Pours a dark brown color with a medium light tan head. Nice spidery lacing. Huge caramel aroma along with the telltale hazelnut. Somewhat rich with a nice mixture of malt, nuts, caramel and hops in the flavor. The finish is rich and nutty. I like this one.

Ths brew pours a deep, mahogony brown with a tan head of good retention. The aroma is a combo of malted milk and caramel. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, all malt up front. Sweet, hazelnut flavor is subtle but definitely present. Finish is a balance of sweet malt and light hops. Delightful brew.

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2003 Very deep brown body with a perfect 2 inch tan head, rocky, with small and regular bubbles, fine lacing and lasting. Sweet nose, chocolate mainly with hints of maple and coffee. The taste is pretty malty, sweet, surprisingly very fresh with loads of nice flavors among which none really stood out, but honey, chocolate, milk, nuts, toffee, caramel, coffee, maple, rich cookies. Soft, creamy and chewy palate. Tremendous malt/hops balance, more on the malt size, but hops is noticeable, especially toward the finish where I noticed a woody/herbal hops flavor and a roastiness that added to the complexity. Great bursting vanilla aftertaste. Lovely beer which I'm frightened I won't be able to get a crack at near often enough living up here:( Two thumbs up to JoeT for this great desert.

Poured dark brown with a slight reddish tint. Light tan, creamy head. Nutty malty aroma. Sweet nutty, roasted malt taste, slightly chocolate taste. A very good friend to me once described this as tasting like a "chocolate stick". I don't quite know what was meant by that, but it works for me.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2004 I remembered not liking it, but after a resample, this is pretty amazing stuff. Definitely the best brown ale out there.

lemonlovr (190) - Orland Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Roasted hop smell, slighly sweet. Flavor has definite smokey roasted quality...slightly bitter. Medium brown in color. Had this in a blind taste test with five other brown ales. This one was close to the top of the group.

clear brown, beige head. hoppy and roasty malt aroma with nugat-ish and chocolate hints and a whiff of hazelnut. very well balanced between tootise roll/mocha notes amd roasty bitterness. the hazelnut is there, but very subtle, which is one thing that makes this beer so great. one of the smoothest beers I've ever had. delicious.

Unique red color and hop-driven aroma. Tastes like melted coffee ice cream with a very smooth swallow. Tougher to drink the warmer it gets.
