Quality, as expected from Rogue. Good, warm aroma of nut brown ale; pours black/deep brown with a fluffy head that dissipates fairly quickly. Roasted brown ale flavor; I found the hazelnut subtle, not overwhelming. Some chocolate notes. Very easy to drink. (10/20/12 @home)

HIGHB4LL (611) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger light brown head, head does not last, light oily lacing, copper to brown color, clear. Aroma: nutty, grassy and floral hops, light coffee, toffee. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, light bitter finish, oily texture. Taste: sweet toffee and nuttiness, into light coffee, and finishing with light bitter grass finish. Overall, amazing beer. Such bold flavors and balance is super good. Always been a fan of this beer, can not believe that I have not rated this one before!

Oddly enough, I like hazelnut more in my beer than in my coffee. It's not my go to, but it's a nice change of pace. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fiveacestx (605) - Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle - dark tea brown color with a small head. Has a sugary molasses nutty caramel taste. Not very malty. Very smooth. Nice sipping beer and one of the better brown ales that I’ve had.

Lekker biertje. Door de hazelnootaroma’s bijzonder. Prima nasmaak ook. gelukkig niet al te kruidig want dat zou botsen met de hazelnoot

the hazelnut lends a unique quality to the otherwise standard fare. it;s got a good body and aroma (of a traditional brown) with the hazelnut flavor lingering on the finish. nicely done."

Carmel with back taste of strong hazelnut. Pours dark brown with no head and taste improves as you drink. My new favorite brown.

Muggus69 (1232) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2014
355mL bottle BB 30/12/15 Pale bronze body, beige head. Mild aroma; crystally toffee malts, bit of milk chocolate, gets a toasted hazelnut note as it warms. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, smooth slightly silky texture. Hazelnut certainly makes itself known on th palate - toasted, roasted nuttiness blends nicely with undertones of chocolate malt & caramel. Restrained bitterness leaves finish with a touch of sweetness. Nice enough, hazelnut flavour is not over-the-top, but never seems properly integrated with the rest of the beer.
