650ml - Brown liguid with cream clored head, nutty and woody nose. Pronounced hazelnut and chocolate on palate fading to a creamy finish. Funky but good.

Honestly, Im not a fan of browns. Its just a really boring style to me. This beer, however... this beer, is not boring. Pours a ruby/brown body with a tan head. Nose is sweet and mellow. Great fragrance. Flavor is sweet. Chocolates, hazelnuts... Nutella? Very Earthy at the same time. Finishes dry. The bitterness is negligible. Very agreeable. The flavor suffers a bit in that it isnt as complex as it could or maybe should be. It tastes clean, almost sterilized. Will I buy this again? Oh yeah. Tasty treat.

Bomber. Astonishingly good for a brown. Pours deep mahogany with a SuperFund-size billowing tan head. Sweet, chocolatey, lightly filbert-y (the northwest name for "hazelnuts") nose. Fairly light body, medium carb. Sweet, gentle, almost neutral attack that gives way quickly to sweet malts on the mid palate. This is really, really flavorful for a brown, but no matter how many dull browns youve had, it still tastes like one. Oddly enough. Clean, neutral finish. Good stuff.

Pailhead (6525) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2006
Bottle: Roasted hazelnut aroma with moderate vanilla, chocoalte, and caramel. Pours a transparent reddish-brown with a small beige head. Flavor starts with roasty hazelnut and moderate vanilla. Hints of chocolate and caramel in the background. Finishes with a real light grassy bitterness. Definitely one of the better brown ales out there.

I just moved into Portland so Im having my fair mix of Rogue brews. The only other Rogue I have had before moving was their Dead Guy Ale... I am thoroughly impressed with both of them. This beer had a dark amber/brown color, slightly transparent. The guy right next to me was smoking at the bar I couldnt get a good sniff because my nose was all crazy. Head was a little thin but a bright contrast white compared to the beer. Taste of course had hazelnut but there was another sweetness in there, almost like cramel or toffee. Very sweet! Extremely smooth and nothing but joy as I drank the beer.

As my wife stated the rating before, this poured a brown-amber color and it had a pretty minimal off-white head that dissipated pretty quickly. The flavor was pretty smooth, slightly sweet, with a hazelnut aftertaste. Medium character, not too complex.

With a nice hazelnut aroma, this poured a brown-amber color and had minimal white head. The flavor was sweet, nutty and malty. Smooth, slightly carbonated palate, and nicely balanced all around. Very drinkable and quite enjoyable on a fall evening.

Good but I didnt like it as well as the Lost Coast Downtown Brown. It had a stronger after taste.

Bomber courtesy of ford9719. Pours brown, with an amber tint, with a finger of tan head. Chocolate, nutty notes. Smooth with chocolate accents. Malts are wells balanced. Very clean brown, a fine beer.

1 finger head. the chocolate aroma and taste is very present. Very dark but not to thick. A beer that i could drink every day and also I think that this would be a beer that you could buy and let age for a year and then that it will be better.
