Well I love Brown Ales, but the Hazlenut flavor seems to cheapen the overall taste of ths beer. Its kind of the same as flavored cigars and flavored coffee. But I did find that the beer is quite refreshing and pairs really well with spicy mexican food!

My new favourite Rogue. Reminds me of a wonderful hazelnut-pecan pie. Incredibly well done. Brown ales are not usually my thing, but this is one exception I would like to keep stocked in my beer closet.

another ingenius brew from Rogue. Pours a deep ruby to brown shade. Aroma is malty, vanilla and a nice hazelnut touch. Full flavored, rich, creamy, roasted malt, nuts, honey, and a hazelnut flavors. Wonderful soft palate, low carbonation, outstanding!

deep brown, tan foam. initial light molasses and woody notes. delicious... honey, vanilla, hazelnut, toffee with grainy tannic astringency.

This brew pours a deep ruby brown. The large tan head is creamy, frothy and very dense. The head is mostly lasting and has good lacing. The bold aroma is stellar. When I’m long dead and burning in hell, they are going to have me chained to the wall with one of these under my nose for me to whiff on for all eternity -with no hope of actually drinking it. Hazelnuts dominate in addition to caramel, mild coffee, flowers, cheese, prunes, toffee, butterscotch, honey, and spices galore. The flavor is also stellar. It is warm, rich, complex, and very balanced. Again hazelnuts dominate with coffee & toffee, spices, honey and some chocolate. The long balanced finish is very clean. The creamy body is medium to full with a very crisp fizzy carbonation that supplies plenty of bite. This brew is almost porter speed. Rogue Ales is quickly becoming my favorite Micro-Brewery.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2003 RE-RATE: Couldn't find this stuff again until I went to the Flying Saucer in Houston last weekend. Loved it again, especially the smoky taste, and had to up it a little bit. I also believe that this beer can bring you good luck. ORIG RATING 4/22/02: 9-5-8-5-16: Incredible!! How can a taste have such prominent hazelnut and honey without ruining it being beer? By far the best nut brown I've ever had, I'm having another next time I'm out. Toffe/caramel is also in the taste. A complex blend of sweetness. Nectar is a good word to describe it, too. Okay, away from the incredible taste, it's also got a handsome brown color, and the nose is as good as how it is on your tongue. Classic.

Holy smokes! This one’s a true champion. Nutty, nutty. It’s got it all, folks. Best nut brown.
