Bomber bottle, poured dark brown and some amber, few bubbles, nose of chocolate, hint of nuts, malt sweet, and semi-sweet chocolate, taste of dark malts, coffee, hint of cherry, little sweet malt flavor, some bitterness on the tongue, nice drink.

Pours a dark brown with red tendencies; head is fairly small and off-white with little lasting ability. Fruitiness in the nose is noticible right away, with notes of hazlenut (obviously), toffee, choclate, and some dates and fig, as if from a Belgian dark. Flavor is not quite the same, but chocloate dominates with toffee, hazlenut, date, and an earthy, root flavor; bitterness is low. Palate is medium with moderate carbonation and a watery, slick feel. Finishes earthy and chocolatey with dryness. One of a kind brown ale with some intiguing qualities, especially the nose, nut the finish and lack of balance really kills it for me. Plenty of charcter and better than most browns.

Sampled from tap on 11/09/2006 at Dilly Deli... Color is brown and clear with a nice, off-white head. Aroma is hazelnut with hints of chocolate. Flavor is a very nice, nutty hazelnut with a bit of sweetness and chocolate to it. Very enjoyable and quite smooth and easy to drink! 16 fl oz draught, $4.00 at Dilly Deli.

6/21/2008: Rogue Hazelnut Brown has a sweet hazelnut aroma and tastes nutty and a lot like Nutella. It is balanced overall and has a dry coffee-like finish. It is medium-bodied, clear, deep golden-caramel in color, and has a khaki head. Always good!

22 fl. oz. bottle (14° Plato, 33 IBU, 73.6 AA, 36° L) enjoyed during the Grand Banquet at the 2009 American Homebrewers Association Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Pours dark bown with beige head. Stunning aroma with caramel, some coffee and a little flowery tones. Taste is very full, complex with caramel and coffee.

The carbonation is overdone, and ruins the beer. A letdown considering I orderd it online and waiting a while to get it. Other than that though, it was a very nice brown ale.

Bottle. Pours dark brown. Hazelnut aroma and flavor. Flavor was somewhat simple, and too much carbonation. Didn’t think much of it.

Sampled at an American Beer Tasting Event but unfortunately I forgot my notes. The added hazelnut oil is clear in both aroma and flavour - in a good way. However, not too interesting...

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, I’m not a fan of browns. It’s 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 isn’t as complex as it could or maybe should be. It tastes clean, almost sterilized. Will I buy this again? Oh yeah. Tasty treat.
