Um aroma expetacular que combina café e chocolate. Aparência avermelhada escura e com espuma bege não duradoura. Sabor marcante com o paladar com notas de café e chocolate.

sjogro (1590) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2015
Bottle at home, dark brown with beige head. Smells awkward. Weirdest aroma, very mouldy, sickly, boiled sweet sterilised milk, lactoderm, sour wood, cream, hazelnuts are only in the background. Taste is moderate bitter, sickly and light sour. I can’t match the ratings I read with what I’m tasting. It’s disgusting. Like drinking cold puke. Tastebuds say no. Bad nutwater. Little to no carbonation. Weird creepy taste. Goosebumps. Bottle says best by 05/2016.

venom666 (694) - Elche, SPAIN - DEC 19, 2015
Clear brown color with medium tan head. Rich hazelnut aroma, sweet, malty, biscuity and sugary. Light body. Taste follows the nose, lts of nuts and hazelnuts, malts, sugar, some caramel and bready notes. Smooth finish.

Draft - Not much of a smell at all. Only slight hint of nut, smells like Christmas. The color is weird, just this very clear brown color to it. Was expecting something a little more cloudy. Malt forward taste. Subtle hints of nut, hazelnut, malt. Not a bad beer.

This wouldn’t ordinarily be my style of beer, but Rogue gets the hazelnut parts of it right. It smells and tastes faintly sweet, but not in an overpowering manner, and it finishes smooth. It’s a beautiful chocolate brown color as well.

Ambra con riflessi rame, buona schiuma beige molto compatta. Buon aroma di malto, nocciola. Sorprende la bevuta con dolcezza e buon sapore di cioccolato e nocciola. Molto beverina. Ben riuscita questa Brown ale.
