Bottle. Brown, clear with no head. Aroma: Wow effect, hazelnuts! After it goes cereal and caramel. Bit sweet taste, no bitterness. Rich flavours: hazelnuts, caramel, English walnut, some chocolate. Nice creamy finish, but high carbonation. Very good beer!

Draft at Beer and Bacon. Pours cloudy dark copper with a bubbly beige head. Tastes like malty, roasted grains, dry with a light sweetness. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet malt, and roasted grains and nuts.

Strong hazelnut flavor and aroma. Actually surprised me how much hazelnut I could taste. The head formed thick on this one.

ARH (376) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2014
On tap poured into an 8oz shaker. Mellow, light aromas of primarily vanilla and toffee comes through. I was expecting more hazelnut in the nose, but not so much. The murky, red brown beer is topped with a light, cloudy tan head that retains a thick ring, and has a runny lace that leaves the glass clean. A mellow, medium malty sweetness combines with a light bitterness on the tongue. The malty, syrupy texture holds a medium full, rich malty body and an average amount of soft carbonation. The roasted hazelnut comes through with a vengeance at the finish with notes of toffee, coffee, honey, and toast. A mostly nutty with some coffee remains in the aftertaste.

On tap. Dark cooper color with little head. Sweet malt aroma. Hazelnut really comes out in the flavor, along with sweetness. Very solid beer.

GenkiGonzo (240) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle at Cherry Bomb. Dark amber. Sweet malty aroma with lots of hazelnut. Flavour is incredibly smooth, nice sweetness from the hazelnut along with chocolate toffee notes. What a surprise! Drink it if you can find it!

chucklemation (454) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Pours a dark reddish-brown with a foamy, quickly-dissipating white head. Has a sweet brown sugar, caramel, and malty aroma. Flavor is sweet, though less sweet than the aroma, with brown sugar, caramel, malts, and a small touch of hazelnut. Surprisingly little hazelnut. Has a medium body feel. The more I drank this the more I liked it, as I feel most of the flavor was on the bottom. Delicious.

2014.05.04 - 12oz bottle at Mimosa. Not going to write a detailed review. Tasty, surprisingly so. One of the few Rogues I have tried that were interesting (not that I've tried that many).
