Not bad, although the tatse of hazelnut faded with each sip. Good in a pinch though. timmy4 (19) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 4, 2005
I’ve never had a beer quite like this. This brown ale seems more like a stout to me. If you are a stout lover and you enjoy hazelnut coffee, this is a must try for you. awebster (165) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 31, 2005
A bit too nutty characteristics for me. Kind of earthy, not that appealing to me. A quality-made beer, but it just doesn’t do it for me. Ayumbomb (63) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 28, 2005
One of the best rogue beers. This beer was extremely creamy, with a tasty chocolate, hazelnut and caramel flavor. And if you don’t like a good amount of bitterness in your beers (I do to a degree), this beer will do it for you. Very smooth going down. I will definitely try again. amalsugar (41) - Tremonton, Utah, USA - OCT 28, 2005
Great aroma and appearance. A good feel in the mouth and great tastes of coffee with a hint of hazelnut. This is one that I tried to clone and I found that I prefer just a little more hazelnut flavor, but an excellent beer in the rogue line up.

Super creamy, nutty, almost "cream soda" taste to it. Buttery but not a great deal of flavor in this one: fairly one dimensional. CaptKirk (175) - Hephzibah, Georgia, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Nice reddish color with a coffee, nutty aroma. This is one beer that is as good on tap as it is in the bottle. One of the best beers in the Rogue lineup and is a must try. Finishes very smooth and clean with very little bitterness that makes you want to continue to drink this to make sure it’s true as you think. Wonderful beer. tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 15, 2005
(Knoxville Brewers’ Jam). Pours reddish brown with a beige head. The aroma is caramel and a bit of butterscotch. The flavor is just a bit on the buttery side, but boasts brown sugar, hazelnut coffee, and just a touch of salinity. Smooth. RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - OCT 7, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2006 Pours a reddish brown with a one finger head that quickly recedes to a thin ring, with mild lacing.
Smells sweet, nutty, mild chocolate, and roasted malts.
Taste was some chococalte, hazelnut, caramel, with a sweet malty finish. Color me crazy, but this reminds me somewhat of a dopplebock when it gets a litte warmer. This one goes down very smooth, with only a touch of bitterness.

tastes like Postum-flavored soda, burnt root beer, earthy, charcoal and dirt, can’t find the hazelnuts unless they toasted the shells . . .
light bubbly mouth feel, not frothy, but weak and insubstantial, incandescent and tinny
aftertaste of smoke and fish, weird tingly head rush
