22oz bomber, no date. Pours a slightly hazy brown with ruby highlights and a slowly fading beige head. Aroma has quite a bit of hazelnuts, some bready malts, a bit of yeast and grassy hops. Flavor is much the same with some roasty malts coming through as well. There was some slight acidity toward the finish. Some sweetness noted. Medium bodied with low carbonation, smooth body. The only other hazelnut beer Ive had was the Berghoff, and this is better--much better. Was impressed with this.

This is a great Oregon beer, excellent longevity of flavors, has been hard to find in Chicago. I would suggest stopping by the Rogue brewery if one had the chance.

Hazy deep red/brown with a medium head. No lacing. Aroma is hazelnuts and roasted malts, chocolate malts and a little vanilla. Im really surprised that more brewers arent using hazelnuts, because this tastes terrific. Rich and creamy. But its very sweet. Probably not a session beer.

I liked this one. Has a good hazelnut flavor along with some chocolate notes. Nice sweet but not too sweet beer.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2009 Bottle: 650 ml. Dark brown (reddish) Fine creamy head. An amazing malty beer with a flavor and taste of caramel, nougat, white chocholate and hazel nuts (of course). Some may criticize it for lacking bitterness and hoppy character, but I think its perfect as a sweet not bitter brown ale.

I must have not been drinking the same brew as everybody else. Draught. Dark brown, no head. Pleasant nutty aroma. Flavor is sweet and pungent with an offensive quality I cant discribe. Syrupy mouthfeel. I took three drinks of this and decided I couldnt drink it any more. My friend drank the rest and loved it but I must say I was dissapointed.

Dark brown ale with a golden tan head that dissolves quickly. Taste of dark chocolate, almond, and obviously hazelnut. This beer definitely reminds me of an iced hazelnut coffee, maybe even a little mocha. I like the uniqueness of the taste, but cant decide if Im a fan or if it is just something different

Bottled. Another good beer by rogue. Ruby color with brown thin head. Chocolate / nut and roasted aromas were detected. A little thin in the body but a smooth nutty taste with a hint of sweetness. Good brew.

22 oz. bottle. As soon as I took my first taste of this one, I knew it was unique among the brown ales Ive tried. Poured a nice dark brown with a good portion of tan head. The aroma seemed somewhat subdued, with slight nuttiness in the nose. But the taste! After letting it sit on my tongue for a second or two, I was hit with an enormous sweet hazelnut flavor; it was unreal. Definitely the strongest flavor Ive experienced in a beer. After the initial hazelnut punch, some coffee made an appearance on the back of my tongue. The finish was smooth and malty. Though Rogue suggests serving this beer with pork or beef, I must disagree. I think this beer is too sweet to mesh well with dinner. Id personally prefer it with dessert. I just wish the aroma was more assertive.
