An aroma of hazelnut, caramel, and toasted malt. A dark brown beer with a hint of red when held to the light. It has a flavor of sweet hazelnut coffee. A good finishing bitter that eases on you and lasts. A smoothly carbonated beer that the palate doesnt weaken much as it warms.

Brown Ales are pretty much the same from brewer to brewer, but this one set itself apart from the rest by being bold, thick, and nutty. Another awesome beer from Rogue! If you like Newcastle, give this a whirl and see if you still think your precious import is the bomb.

Bottled. Pours dark brown with a thin creamy head. The aroma is a really sweet syrupy malt aroma and the taste pretty much matches. This is a medium body ale, with a slight malty syrupy quality to it that makes it a very hard to forget beer. It has a very sweet finish. Great beer!

Ive enjoyed this one both on draught, and in 220z bombers. This beer has its fans and its share of critics as well. I enjoy this beer, and find the addition of hazelnut to be a nice one. Pours to a beautiful, bright, deep brown color, with a creamy, tan head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose on this beer is excellent with lots of fragrant hazelnut aroma, paired with nutty and sweet malt aroma. The palate is firm, with good sweet malt, and nutty malt flavors. This beer finishes, with more good sweet and nutty malt flavor up front, then ends sligjhtly cloying, with a very pleasing hazelnut flavor that lingers. If you enjoy hazelnut, then you will enjoy this beer. While hazelnut is indeed the star of this show, I really enjoyed the aroma and flavors of sweet and nutty malt. The hazelnut character is too much for some tastes, but this beer makes for a wonderful desert beer, and a great beer to enjoy after a nice meal.

Bottle: Gorgeous ruby brown in color, with very little head. Sweet and Nutty with toasted malts abounding. Not as complex as I wanted but a very good ale none the less.

22 oz bottle. Drank after I defended my dissertation, 4/11/06. Poured a dark brown color with a small head. Basically, this is Nutella beer (for those of you who have had Nutella, a chocolate hazelnut spread). The sweet, nutty aroma almost scared me away from this one, but the more a tasted, the more I liked it. All in all, I say this one is pretty excellent. Rogue rocks!

Surprisingly little body to this beer in the mouth. The sensation somehow seemed completely limited to the nose. Nothing unpleasant about it though.

The 22 oz bottle poured a slightly hazy, dark mahogany brown colored beverage with a small off-white head that was mostly lasting and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma had a decided aroma of hazelnut, grassy hops and roasted malts. This one had a medium body with lively carbonation and a slightly thin texture although there was an alcohol warmth in the finish. The flavor started off with a sweet and nutty presence that lasted through the medium-long finish.

The commercial description is perfect. I would include sweet coffee aromas. You think its gonna be sweet from the aroma and front end flavors but to my amazement it stays totally dry. This is a very interesting brew. The color is a rich brown with a splash of red creating a slightly tawnied blood hue. Pours a chocolate milk colored froth that hangs around for a while. Overall; a very rich and aromatic brew that is ballanced. The finish is smooth and lingers.
