22 oz. bottle poured into a mug. Small tan head with good retention. Poured a dark copper that was rather hazy. Aroma was malty with a hint of nuttiness. Taste was that of spice, nut, and sweet malt. This is a good beer for this time of year.

hopscotch (10147) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2010
Bottle… Lightly hazed, burnt orange ale with a small, foamy, off-white head. Great retention. Nutty, malty aroma – hazelnut and butter-pecan ice cream. Medium-bodied with stinging carbonation. Well-balanced flavor with a modest lactic acid component that is not present in the un-treated base beer. Other than that, like the base beer, this one delivers big-time nuttiness. Minerally bitterness tempers big-time caramel and praline sweetness. Short, crisp, clean finish. Very enjoyable.

mixmasterob (976) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2010
On draught @ Smoky Oak in Charleston. Brown pour with no head into a pint glass. Aroma was big time rum and barrel. Flavors were similar yet a bit flat and unappealing. Lots of rum alongside a spice character I couldn’t ID. Mouthfeel was super thin, almost watery, way off putting. Finish was sweet and spicy, not a fan of this one and I love the Hazelnut brown.

VertBaconStrips (2200) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 30, 2010
Nice clear reddish brown with a thick light tan pour, slippery spotty lacing and good retention. Good return on a vigorous swirl as well. The aroma is quite complex: nutty hazelnuts, bit of wood, warmth, those strange brown wrapped chewy candies that you never ate from halloween, light rum notes, sweet raisins, borderline smoke, sweetness and richness. Very nice subtle aromas can be found. Has a spice similar to x-mas beers. The taste is also interesting: Rum and hazelnuts dominate, cinnamon, caramel. not my favorite but it’s enjoyable and fairly straight forward. There’s also a bit of wood, hints of something almost chocolatey. Zippy hints of rum, zero hops (it’s a Rogue first!). Nice carbonation. Finishes.

dyetube (1337) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 29, 2010
This beer pours a deep brown with a medium tan head. The aromas are nuts malt, vanilla. The mouthfeel is watery and lightly bitter end a little sweet. Not a great beer but not bad either.

hero12 (184) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Pours a very dark amber color with a small white head. Intriguing nose, sweet and matly. Initial taste was different, but not that good, but as the beer warmed, I started to enjoy it a lot more. I couldn’t really put my finger on what I liked about this beer, but it is very enjoyable in small ammounts. I know I couldn’t have more than a glass of this, glad it was shared.

Bottle at the Beerhive shared with Mikey. Pours a clear ruby/amber color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet berries and some rum. The flavor is sweet berries, medicinal, some rum barrel, odd. A thin palate. Not working for me.

pintbypint (2977) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 26, 2010
650ml brown bottle. Medium brown orange coloured beer with a thin tan head which fades to a skiff on the surface. Seems to be a little hazy. Light toffee aroma, brown sugar, a little fruity. Flavour is of caramel, hazelnut, light rum notes. Bit of woody dryness in the finish, touch of alcohol, trace of rum spiciness. Low bitterness. Soft mouthfeel/texture, carboantion is light. Decent.

Damico (2952) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2010
The aroma of delicious sweet cinnamon, cloves, and spiced rum, I love it. It pours dark amber thick with a nice tan head. The flavor of as delicious balanced sweet and spicy brown ale. The body is lighter and the ending on the palate is a bit bland and malty.
