Ive been looking forward to trying this for a good bit now. Lovely espresso colour with ruby glints, just the way I like it. Poured a medium-large light brown head that smelt like sour milk. After I let it warm in my hand a bit, and the head died off, the nuttiness made itself clear. Sweet malt aroma with plenty of hazelnut. Great mouthfeel, thick in the right places. Fabulous hazelnut chocolate flavour with plenty of toasted toffee, malt and hops. Really is balanced quite nicely.

Excellent nutty/malty flavor. Weak aroma does not translate to the flavor that this beer has. Going on my favorites list.

Bottle. Deep brown, with a tan head. Aroma is a bit off, somewhat sweet smelling. Might be the extract. Body is heavy, with a sweet fizzy taste and feel. Almost soft drink in character. The alcohol is well hidden with all of the malt action going on. Quite drinkable.

Not as good as I had hoped this beer would be. I have waited a long time to drink this, and had really high expectations. I wanted to like this beer--because Im a big fan of Rogue--but I just couldnt do it. The pour is brown with a good head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of weak malt and thats about it--just not much to speak of really. The taste is the same, just underwhelming me with blandness. Mouthfeel is alright, but I just kept wanting more. "

Tried this while visiting Grand Rapids MI. Pours a beautiful brown with a rich, nutty bouquet. Nicely hopped with malty burnt chocolate hazelnut flavours... Sort of like Nutella! Loved it. (650ml bottle)

(04.30.06) One pint, 6 oz brown bottle from DiCarlos, Mundelein, IL. 14P. 33 IBU. Clear dark amber with small off-white head. Soft carbonation. Caramel aroma. Medium bodied brown ale that starts with light malt sweetness. Burnt caramel and biscuit flavors from toasted malt. Finished with light malt fade and light bitterness. Smooth. Though no hazelnut aroma or flavor was detected, this is an excellent brown ale.

From bomber. Poured a murky brown with dissipating tan head. Nose is sweet nuts. Flavor is more sweet, roasted nuttiness. Palate is a little thin. One of the better browns Ive had, but still not that exciting.
