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 itís a bit too light.

33cl on tap in Piwna Stopa, Poznan, PL. Pours deep brown with small head. Lots, lots of nuts in aroma, very intensive. Taste is a mixture of caramel and nuts, which gives an impression of nougat. Average carbonation. I would like to have even more body in it, then it would really be a nectar. Very drinkable

35cl bottle bought from cerveteca bar in Lisbon. It pours a dark reddish-brown colour with a large creamy and lasting tan head. Aroma is roasted nuts, roasted malts, caramel and chocolate. Taste is overwhelmingly nutty and sweet at the beginning, caramel malts, roasted flavour, chocolate and mocca feel, some dark fruits and a little bitter at the end. It has a medium body with a creamy feel and decent carbonation. This beer has a very nutella-like flavour, and itís very ejnoyable.

330ml bottle from Dronfield Beer Stop - Cloudy muddy brown body, no head. Nose is dusty nuts, overwhelmingly so. The taste is equally nutty, but not in a good way. Not a fan of this one and rather disappointing.

Bottle poured into shaker: Dark reddish brown with a tan head. The aroma was roasted nut, caramel and chocolate. It has a smooth malty flavor with a chocolate and a little bit of espresso flavor. A very creamy and medium body ale. Very enjoyable.

MarcoDL (2452) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2015
Bottle. Light brown pour. Aroma of malt and hazelnut, bit too mild. Taste of creamy hazelnut, with some spices, brown malt, pumpkin and a nutty bitter finish. Thin body, but a nice beer.

I keep telling myself that this is a brown ale and itís really not going to be a viscous pour, so as dark as it is, Iím not surprised when it flows out of the bottle at about the rate of an RC cola. (Dating myself?) The liquid is a toasted honey-brown and light-bodied. It threatens to go over the top of the mug with a fat, delicate head that is so ambitious, I actually have to sip the foam down to a level that is compatible with a good photo. :-) Itís gone in minutes, leaving only a thin stream of islands across the surface. Head aside, the first drag demonstrates a fairly light-bodied beverage, nicely carbonated and tasting of slightly overdone chocolate chip cookies without the chips. A deep vanilla and toasted hazelnut make a play for my sweet tooth; silky warm malts seal the deal. Iím hooked on this Rogue and am happily surprised by the tempting and creamy texture despite the lightness of the beer. The finish is decadent, keeping the flavor true to the end and inviting me to enjoy yet another go...

bartlebier (2072) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2015
12oz bottle bb04/2015, Maruhn. Mistook this for a porter instead of a brown ale... Pours a quite thin caramel brown. Instant full-wallop hazelnut concentrate in the nose, an immediate flashback to the 90s and its hazelnut-infused espresso shots with a generous helping brown sugar. Cherry Coke says Hi, wearing its glitzy shoulder pads. Taste is a supremacy of inferior Nutella spread and roasted hazelnuts ruining a palpably decent, if watery brown ale underneath, the delicate citrus zing of Saaz and Perle peeping gently from underneath the cheap nutty overload at the very end like the innocent glint in the eye of a shy first-time bukkake victim caught off guard in a cheap motel. Why this racy kitsch when hazelnut flavours can be had as a nuance of roasted malts? (Cf. Hermann Broch: Das BŲse im Wertsystem der Kunst.)
