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.

May, 2003: Big pint bottle. Newcastle Brown with some hazlenut syrup. Pleasant enough, but not a great beer. These Rogueís have a reputation for being great beers - so far they have merely been acceptable. Iím surprised that so many people I respect are giving this such praise. Obviously Iím missing something. OK - attractive hazlenut colour, check. Slight raison and hazlenut aroma, check. Mouthfeel - light medium with small carbonation, check. Nothing special so far. Flavour dominated by a sort of hazlenut syrup with touches of vanilla and caramel, behind which - and not exactly well integrated - is a sort of nutty, rusty beer with some traces of hop bitterness that warms in the finish, but is marred by a metallic quality and a chemical hazlenut. Some chocolate late in the finish. A clumsy journey full of faults. Try as I might, I canít see this as even a good beer.

Draft. Had this one at Rolandís in the Strip in the Burgh. Great large head (even with the slow old waitress) and a creamy off-white foam with excellent lacing. I have a feeling that this will be a great one. Cloudy and brown, with almost streaks going through it. Nose of sweet toffee, vanilla - lots of vanilla and I guess some hazelnut as well. Taste is like no other beer Iíve ever had... nutty, honey, vanilla, semi sweet and great creamy fully body with a very light if any hop addition. Being a hop-head, I am surprised at how much I love this brew. It is simply a great beer. I canít wait for another.

Very smooth brew. Simply an all around amazing beer. Aroma is of fine cut hazelnuts. A bit rich, but if you like it that way, then itís perfect. Get out there and find this beer. You will enjoy.

Beerbistro Winterfest and Vintage Tasting. Mahogany colour with a thin and diminishing off-white head. Nutty, fruity, cherry, caramel, and molasses aroma. Chocolate, amaretto, nutty, coffee, and lightly fruity flavours. Light bodied and somewhat watery. Overall, less than the sum of its parts, mainly due to lacking mouthfeel.

Dark amber. Light beige-grayish foam. Sweet, malty, lightly roasty, hazelnut aroma--though not overly pronounced. Medium-thin, highly carbonated. Surprisingly bland (for Rogue), sweet, malty, slightly artificial hazelnut flavour w/ some mineral notes. Also somewhat cloying.

Bottle. Nice nutty aroma. Ruby brown color. Decent head, color is off-white to tan. Slight lacing. Nice hazelnut flavor. Coffee hints also. A little thin would be the only fault here. Very nicely done!

11.06.04 This just had such a smooth nice nutty flavor, that it just went perfectly with my enormous babel-esque stack of white chips while playing texas holdem with biznizness and a few other ratebeerians last night

Just a fantastic brew. Deep, rich hazlenut flavor. Nice and creamy and sweet. This is beer candy.
