Bottle - As soon as i opened the bottle the hazelnut aroma hit. Pours reddish brown with tight off white head. The aroma is very inviting as you would expect dominated by hazelnut. rich sweet taste with creamy nuttiness. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. best I’ve had in a while!

larsga (6553) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2015
Medium beige head. Clear brown body. Caramelly popcorn aroma with thick rough nutty notes. Dryish roasty nutty popcorn taste. Mid-to-thin body. Mild, soft, slick mouthfeel. Dryish earthy popcorn and perfumy butterscotch aftertaste. Lingering buttery hazelnut and vanilla finish. Awful. Artificial. Drainpour. (0.355l bottle, from Vinbudin Kringlan, Reykjavik. Label said 6.2%.)

On tap at Llywelyns. It poured a brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was very malty with some nuts. The taste was very nutty with malts, caramel, earthy hops and woody notes. It had a medium body with medium carbonation. Tasty.

tomekk1978 (759) - Ząbki, POLAND - APR 30, 2015
Aromat: przede wszystkim wyraźne utlenienie, kwaskowość i melanoidyny, z pod których jedynie w niewielkim stopniu przebija się orzech. Barwa: czerwona / miedziana, zgaszona. Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, niewielka i szybko opadająca. Smak: nuta kwaskowa, pochodząca z ciemnych słodów, z orzechowym posmakiem. Słodycz niewielka, trochę miodowa. Goryczka symboliczna. Średnia pełnia, umiarkowane do wysokiego wysycenie, nieco szczypiące w język. Wytrawny i alkoholowy finisz. Trafił mi się niestety egzemplarz z datą do 04/2015 i to było czuć :(

Notes of caramel and nuts, creamy, with a great finish of roasted hazelnuts. Poors dark brown with a small head. Tastes slightly sweet and well-balanced. The hazelnuts are not too dominant. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel.

12 oz / 355 ml bottle. Served at Metro in Lahti. Strong hazelnut flavor. Nice dark beer. Rouge makes good beer. I would drink again but probably not going to be the first choice.

W zapachu i smaku coś specyficznego, przypominającego ciasto drożdżowe z truskawkami, ciekawe : )
