The abundance of enjoyment from this unique beer lies in its taste, a malty sweetness with its hazelnut flavor with notes of spice. The combination is like comfort food, perfect for a rainy day.

Dark brown pour. Big khaki head. Some lacing. Sour aroma and taste. Might be infected. But it tastes pretty good.

August 2010. 22 oz. bottle. Dark amber color with an offwhite head. Malty aromas with nuts, spice, caramel. A little sweet from the barrel ageing, but a nice brew.

3/09/2011: Rogue John John Ale (Ale with Natural
Hazelnut Flavor Aged in Hazelnut Spice Rum Barrels)... Aroma:
Caramel, dulce de leche; pumpkin pie spiciness. Appearance: Deep
ruby-amber color with a foamy ivory-colored head; murky complexion.
Flavor: Caramel, dust, stale coffee, pie spices (cinnamon, allspice,
clove), toasted nuts, thin hazelnut liqueur. Palate: Medium; bubbly;
seems a little thin. Overall: The hazelnut definitely comes through,
but this beer is disappointing (as expected) and mediocre at

Not very good, disappointed. Pours a beautiful red with a light tan head. Smells very nice, of spiced run and bananas. Taste however is very weird, very tart, far too carbonated with lots of rum, and a very sour aftertaste. Almost no hazelnut. Give rogue credit for trying different things, but this one isn't a winner, unlike voodoo doughnut.

A nice brown ale, this pours a murky, middle brown with reddish tones, and a small, fizzy, tan head. Nose is nutty and malty. Flavor echoes the nose, with a decidedly vinous quality that makes the beer very enjoyable and slightly warming despite the low ABV. Highly drinkable.

22oz bomber. This one was a gusher. Pours a hazy dark brown color with a thick tan head. Aroma of hazelnut, some spices, with a nice strong rum presence. Taste was kinda blah. Very little hazelnut flavor and slight rum notes. Wasn't bad, but tasted more like an average brown ale to me. Aroma was definitely better then the taste.

My favorite of the John John series. Smells of nutty coffee and light spices. Flavor is mild dried dark fruits and oak over top of the Dead Guy profile. Texture to this one is a little too prickly, though.
Does not age well, however. Had a year-old bottle that got lost in the cellar - nose was burning styrofoam, flavor had lost it’s brightness and begun to show serious oxidation signs.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2013 Has a nice hazelnut taste and aroma that bolsters a well-balanced, medium-bodied brown ale. One of the better brown ales out there. Fairly straight-forward for a Rogue.

22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a small beige head. The aroma is sweet malts, noticeable spices, light barrel notes and some hazelnut. The flavor has caramel malts, mild spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, very light hazelnut and barrel notes. Thin, soft body.
