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, it’s pretty much just peanut butter-esque with not much else to give any other depth. But that one note? It’s 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 that’s about it. Decidedly one note, and that solitary note has flaws to it. I don’t hate it by any stretch, though. M: The general texture is kind of thin and even insubstantial. Despite that, there’s 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; I’m glad I only bought a single of these and wouldn’t buy it again. Having said that, it’s a good choice for hazelnut lovers - because let’s face it, the flavor is nothing BUT that. If this and Frangelic Mountain Brown have taught me anything, it’s that hazelnut beers give off great aromatic qualities...and not so great flavor profiles.

The hazelnut is very light. The mouth is more on woody flavour. Nice color of dark amber. Short last in mouth.

Bawelt (417) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAY 16, 2016
Bière assez simple, pas d’immense surprise mais pas de fautes notes voire plutôt gourmande ! Nez : très caramel, beaucoup de noisette. Bouche : relativement aqueuse, un peu plus amère que le nez, on retrouve légèrement le caramel derrière l’orge assez malté, typique d’une "ambrée". La noisette est très perceptible derrière tout cela, devient plus franche sur la finale et monopolise carrément la longueur (légèrement caramélisé), d’ailleurs toute relative. Très sympathique, buvable, plutôt équilibrée et se tient bien, bref bien fait. Les amateurs de bière plus franches et corpulentes vont surement trouver cela décevant.

De geur is enorm sterk. Precies een pot nutella dat je opendoet, echt lekker. De kleur is lichtbruin. De smaak is lekker vol, bijna romig. Echt een aanrader

Bottle. Pours dark amber with off white head. Aroma is sweet toffee nutty. Taste is sweet hazelnut honey like with a malty hazelnut finish. It’s pretty good.

Heidbummer (122) - SCOTLAND - APR 23, 2016
A beer of two halves. Pours ruby, thin head. Starts nutty and toasty and very drinkable then inexplicably fades really badly becoming thin and anonymous. Weird. Drink quickly I would recommend.

ferrinche (64) - Santiago de Compostela, SPAIN - APR 17, 2016
He de reconocer que no soy muy fan de las cervezas aromatizadas, pero me atreví con esta por las buenas críticas. Los de Rogue consiguen un resultado interesante con esta cerveza, y seguro que los bebedores aficionados a este tipo de cervezas quedaran satisfechos. Para mi gusto la cerveza en un primer momento sorprende y agrada al bebedor, consiguiendo un equilibro perfecto entre las noas ahumadas y las de la avellana, pero en un momento posterior, la cerveza llega a empalagar y a aburrir.

Light mouthfeel. Fake hazelnut flavor that overpowers everything. I took a few sips and couldn’t finish it, which is rare for me.
