Reviewed 2/20/13. 12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass. A: Pours a dark chestnut color. The head is a one finger light mocha shade featuring a good texture, but not much retention. S: Strongly nutty - not just in terms of hazelnut, but other variants like almonds, walnuts, and pecans come through. Aromatically, itís pretty much just peanut butter-esque with not much else to give any other depth. But that one note? Itís extremely inviting and enjoyable. T: Much sweeter than the aroma, and veering dangerously to artificial in terms of how it comes off. The flavor profile is hazelnut...and thatís about it. Decidedly one note, and that solitary note has flaws to it. I donít hate it by any stretch, though. M: The general texture is kind of thin and even insubstantial. Despite that, thereís a lot of coarse finishing astringency that comes off slightly clashing with the sweetness and limp body. Hell, it even manages to be both watery AND sugary in its finish. Only thing it does right here is ease of drinkability. O: Not particularly likable aside from the aroma; Iím glad I only bought a single of these and wouldnít buy it again. Having said that, itís a good choice for hazelnut lovers - because letís face it, the flavor is nothing BUT that. If this and Frangelic Mountain Brown have taught me anything, itís that hazelnut beers give off great aromatic qualities...and not so great flavor profiles.

jsporrer (711) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2016
Pours a clear medium brown with a big head of white foam. Nice aroma of hazelnuts. Nice roasted nutty flavor but not that great. A tad thin. Fairly enjoyable. Ok but not great.

petewhitley (519) - Nagoya, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2016
nuts, caramel, brown, cloudy, minimal head, medium sweetness, light body, creamy, flat. Intense, nutty aroma. Muddy brown color, but not off-putting. Hazelnut of course, but equally caramel in taste. Soft and smooth on the tongue, dark chocolate aftertaste. The right beer for the right time to be sure; unfortunately I drank this on an empty stomach and missed the opportunity to compliment a meal.

Fantastic! Surprisingly un-Rogue-like. Very mild hops for an American Brown. Interesting raisin like caramel. Beautiful hints of red! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dysenteri (128) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2016
33 cl bottle from Boxbeers. Copper brown with white/beige head. Aroma is lots of hazelnut, fruity, spices/herbs, cardamon, cinnamon, nutty, malts. I feel like having "šppelkaka". More of the same spices in the taste, medium sweet, not bitter at all. Light body, creamy with soft carbonation. A beer for the winter or with a dessert, on its own its a bit too much of the cardamon vibe.
