A very nice pour rich brown in colour, with a pleasant hazelnut aroma. Has a nice creamy tan head that dissipates rather quickly.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2006 A darned nice nut ale. The hazlenut approach was unique and pleasant, just phenomenal. Appearance was crystal clear ruby brown with a small head and minimal lacing. The aroma was strong hazelnuts with some chocolate behind it. Flavor was dry hazelnuts, with a sweet dark malt base (chocolate?). Mouthfeel light to moderate for the style. After two tastings of this, man, Im impressed. One of the best nut browns around.

Cant figure out why, having had this so many times, that I neglected to rate it. Deep garnet body with a small brown head. Nice roasted nut aroma, vanilla notes, malted Whoppers. Full bodied and creamy in the mouth. Same notes in the flavor as in the aroma. Had this once with a shot of Frangelica in it. Awesome.

Bottle, Kbenhavnske ldage 2006. Dark brown with an average head. Rich malty and nutty aromas. Mellow brown and nutty caramelly flavours. Some artificial caramel. Finishes with nougat and more caramel. Soft and without any influence of hops.

From a 22oz. distinctive Rogue bomber bottle with info and a blurb on the right side of bottle along with a good beef and pork symbols. Made a good appearance, poured a cloudy chocolate brown with a foamy tan head that settled into a thin lacing, moderate carbonation. Had a hazelnut and caramelized malts nose with a little roasted sweetness. A crisp, malty textured and creamy smooth medium bodied mouth feel, very good drinkability. Hazelnuts and caramelized malts, toasted and roasted with a nice sugary sweetness, a spicy hoppiness that is quick and fleeting in its bitterness, a chocolate maltiness shows up in the middle and a nutty and sweet malty finish. Another winner from Rogue, one of my favorite brewers, tasty, nutty and quite quaffable.

This beer has it all- not weak in any category. In appearance, its a nice dark brown, almost reddish color with a small to medium sized tan head. The aroma is chocolatey, sweet, almost milky- chocolate milkshake is coming to mind..., a touch of vanilla and brown sugar. It also tastes chocolatey and malty, but very nutty as well. Smooth and creamy, low carbonation- the palate is very appropriate for the flavours.

Pours a clear rich redbrown with a decent light tan head, dwindling over time to a thin film. The nose is delicate (my allergy ridden sinuses couldnt pick anything up at first, though after blowing my nose...). Milk chocolate, almost Nutella, given that distinct sweet hazelnut overtone. Just a touch of flowers at the end, though given the big malt, I suppose some more hops wouldve been nice for balance... though I dont think that would be appropriate for a beer that smells like desert. Though this is a great tasting beer, I was immediately wowed by the palate--silky smooth with the tiniest bubbles Ive ever encountered. Just enough viscosity to remain a session ale. This really nails the right mouthfeel for a brown, in my humble opinion. This brew really continues to shine in the flavor department. Huge malt, chocolatey and creamy sweet with just a hint of spicey hops at the end. The finish is a bit toasty for a brown, but I cant say Im complaining! The hazelnut isnt as obvious in the flavor, but it sneaks out in the lactic aftertaste. This is one of the nicest session beers Ive consumed.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Tap @ Frisco Grille (Rogue Wave Weekend) - Deep clear brown, thin tan creamy head. Nose held soft notes of rich hazelnut, brown sugar, with even softer caramel and raisin notes. Flavor was nutty all up in the house with light sweet chocolate and more brown sugar dominating. A light hop bitterness offers up a version of balance, but this take is all about the hazelnut. Light to medium bodied, light carbonation, soft nutty, semi-sweet finish. Decent stuff, but couldnt drink more then one in a sitting...
