Four different malted barleys combine to create a distinctive, full-bodied beer with a roasted nuttiness, uniquely enhanced by a hint of hazelnuts. Smooth and creamy with the nose of the Willamette hop, this porter is a beer style unto itself.

Decent enough. Smells Amazing but the taste isn’t quite as good as the smell. The hazelnut is good and sweet but there’s a slight aftertaste. I liked it and would have again. But the smell made me think more was in store.

Satyroneto (177) - BRAZIL - MAR 11, 2015
Marrom escura, quase negra; espuma bege de média/alta formação e baixa persistência sem lacing. Aroma de torrado de café e leves toques de baunilha, chocolate e nozes; com o aumento da temperatura, intenso aroma licoroso de frangélico. Sabor de café com final licoroso de frangélico e leve amargor; retrogosto de levíssima adstringência e licor de nozes. Corpo aveludado e final sedoso com baixa carbonatação.

dark brown to black Nose is nice. aroma is certainly hazelnut heavy. taste is roasted old chocolate, some rye, kind of stale tasting but hazelnut does come through.

Altro birrificio del Maine, da Bangor, città che indirettamente conosco. In realtà i proprietari sono gli stessi della Shipyard. Si tratta di una porter aromatizzata, dal tipico colore marrone scuro e schiuma beige. Già al naso l’aroma di nocciole è distinto, con malto e leggero caramello. L’assaggio è netto: cioccolato, malto tostato, sono superati da un netto prevalere della nocciola. E’ invadente forse, ma non stucchevole. Leggera e poco carbonata, resta una birra da bere una volta e via, visto il suo sapore così spiccatamente nocciolato.

12 oz bottle served in a goblet. Pours a very dark brown; dark enough to be nearly opaque in the glass. Medium size tan head is creamy and has decent retention. Aroma: plenty of hazelnut and generic roasted nut notes with some dark bread and sweet caramel. The taste: Dark malts are more apparent and theres a nice bit of spicy hops. Plenty of hazelnut here too, but not overdone. Transforms from sweet upon hitting the tongue to moderately bitter in the aftertaste. M: Near creamy smooth; medium-full body; medium carbonation. O: While it is not up to the Rogue Hazelnut overall, it is a fine brew; one of the best I’ve had from this brewery. The aroma is exceptional.

Bottiglia. Colore marrone scuro con una schiuma color cappuccino mediamente persistente. Aromi di malto tostato, nocciole e cioccolato. Al palato è molto beverina e il malto la fa da padrone, sul finale si sentono le nocciole. Corpo medio con una carbonazione bassa. Una bella porter

This beer looks and smells good with pretty good flavor. However, the aftertaste leaves something to be desired. I’ll finish the six pack that I bought, but would not buy it again.
