drinking too much means going nuts. Not too bad, but not very good either...

jgb9348 (5093) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2003
Darker brown colour, almost no head. Decent smell...not really nutty, but somewhat acidic. Not too strong of a taste, very mild and somewhat 'nutty'. Not a great beer. I don't like "nut brown" stylings much, and this is a good example of why. Better luck next time, I suppose!

pivo (2631) - GERMANY - APR 22, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2004 Decent nose - complex mix of malt, chocolate and raisins. Dark brown with lathery head. Very tasty indeed: toffee, hazelnut and maybe chocolate. Little pronounce hop character but a good balance overall. Creamy mouth feel at first with a dry end. A full and flavorful beer consistent with Rogue's offerings.

Great aroma, wonderful light, frothy head. Unfortunately as soon as I tasted it I was dissapointed. It seemed like a great beer, just watered down. I'm not sure if it was just this keg, but if it hadn't tasted watered down it would have been one of my favorites.

notalush (5351) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2003
Frothy white head that leaves a nice lacing. Hazelnut in the aroma, of course. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Sweet flavor, with a good deal of hazelnut, as well as chocolate malt, perhaps some toffee. Slight bitterness near the end which balances the beer out well. A nice little brown ale.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2003
A rich, brown brew with a quickly dissipating head. Crisp and dry and nutty with a hint of caramel, sweet malts and coffee in the finish. Nice and smooth and easy to drink, although nothing is particularly striking, except the coffee in the finish.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2003
Brown nectar indeed. Pours dark brown, with sweet malts and a distinct hazelnut flavor, as oh-so-subtely suggested on the bottle. However, the flavor seemed to thin as the bottle was drained. A good beer, but I've had better browns.

shaeffbser (70) - Vail, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2003
hazelnut color and cream head. Aroma has a hazel-chocolate and a gramcracker smell. Tastes a little like a gram cracker, with good hazelnut. Mild carbonation.

Wow. Can you say hazelnut. This is a very good beer but unless you like hazelnut flavoring, this may be a bit much.

Not much aroma or head. Nice brown color and not as sweet as I thought it would be. Toasted/Roasted flavor.
