UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Bottle: Swampy brown with a copper edge tint, light clarity & light haze throughout; a soapy, beige head stretched out thinly on top. Aroma is full force sticky toffee, more so than hazelnut even. Actually only a very mild hazelnut tone in the aroma. Slightly artificial, like concentrate with an undertone of residual sweetness. Off-notes of wet cardboard & dry rot... What? Is this oxidized already? Hazelnut is more relevant on the palate... Hazelnut, cola, toffee, dry cocoa powder, & nuts, leading into a lasting woodsy & earthy finish. I’m getting that weird, wet cardboard flavor & it’s really turning me off. Not as sweet as I was expecting... Rather dry, nutty aftertaste. Wasn’t a huge fan of this one... Not sure what that cardboard was all about. I’d like to try another bottle to see if things are different, but I won’t be rushing to do so.

Ruby amber pour with nearly no head. Very nutty nose. Weak, soft mouthfeel. Uneventful flavor. Some nuttiness. Finishes bitterly.

Bottle. Pours brown with a beige head. The aroma is Nutella and toasted malt. Nutty and malty flavor. Low bitterness.

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
