3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Somewhat clear mahogany color with 1/4" quickly dissipating head.
S: Chocolate malt and that’s about it. Maybe a bark-like essence. Cinnamon? A slight hint of coffee creamer (hazelnut).
T: Again chocolatey without any sweetness. A hoppy bite with a hint of roast/toast dark bread.
M: Medium body with more carbonation than expected but not enough to distract. I don’t get much of the the nuttiness I remember.
O: I thought this was the best stuff in the world back in the 1990s. OK but doesn’t hold up to my memories. Oh well. Rogue seems to have a bit of a reputation problem now and I definitely don’t like their refusal to date their products. I guess I can let this go. Too expensive to be this mediocre.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Incredibly heavy and good smell of nuts. The taste is of nuts and hints of chocolate too. Slightly bitter which fills the upper part of the mouth a weak moment. Seems that the beer loses flavor very quickly and almost becomes watery. Okay rating yet. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Aroma is colossal hazelnut at Nutella level. Taste is more mild but the texture is hugely creamy. This ain't an every day beer, but delicious nonetheless.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Standard American brown ale with light beige, moussy, lacing head and clear, warm, beautiful, deep copper colour. Aroma abounds with toasted malts; impressions of roasted pine nuts and chestnuts dominate, bark, autumn leaves, nutmeg, bitter honey, peanuts, burning wood, caramel, the kind of cocoa powder I used to make chocolate milk with as a child, biscuit, moccha, cardboard. Restrainedly sweetish onset, toasty, smooth and slick with rather thin body and lowish carbonation, nutty and slightly caramelly maltiness, somewhat resinous, peanut- and toasted bread-like till the very end, with some leafy hops adding a mild bitterness. Brown ales will never be my favorite style, but this is an enjoyable, straightforward example, with a pleasant sweet roasted nuttiness as its main theme, lasting for quite a long time after swallowing. Glad I tried this.

Bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a thin tan head. Mild aroma and taste of nuts and malt. A bit thin-bodied and bland for my taste.

Dark reddish-brown color with big head. Hazelnut aroma, lots of hazelnut, caramel, chocolate. Hazelnut chocolate is probably the best way to describe it. Very full-bodied taste but still a light fresh taste. I like it, but it’s a bit too light.
