UPDATED: FEB 1, 2017 Bottle at home. 355ml/ Expiry date : Februar 2017. Pours reddish brown, almost no head. Big hop taste, caramel, malts, sweetness, hazelnut...low carbonation, more godlike malt sweetness and hazelnuts. Pleasent bitterness...my mouth is watering for another sip, and another, and another... excellent.

Bottiglia 33cl. Rosso scuro, aroma di nocciola e malto caramellato. Idem in bocca dove si percepisce anche un p di vaniglia. Corpo medio, nocciola sempre presente ma mai nauseante. Rogue non ne sbaglia una!

AleRider78 (972) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2017
Had a bottle at Pub Italia, and arrived with average size head that doesnt stick around long but leaves a bit of lace. Has a dark amber appearance with reddish hues. Aromas are pretty much hazelnut for me and not much else, maybe light malts as well. Flavours of hazelnut are at the forefront for sure, along with light chocolate notes and hints of vanilla. Some mild roasted malts also. Nectar coming from citrus hops. Creaminess at first, slightly watery at the end. Pretty smooth mouthfeel with a little bit of the hazelnut in the finish. Very good but I think one pint is sufficient, otherwise the taste becomes too much.

Bottle. Reddish Brown in colour, Red against light. Hazelnut aroma. Very Malty; very very nutty, toasty/roasty malts, caramel. Sweet nutty malty with slight balancing hop bitterness. Dry nutty aftertaste. Rather one-dimensional. Easy drinking. Decent. (2011-10-01)

Alpha10 (721) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2017
2017/01/19 - Pours a hazy medium brown/amber colour with a thin, creamy, khaki coloured head that quickly dissipates and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is strong hazelnut, hints of dry dark fruit, roasted malt, butterscotch, cocoa, biscuit and light vanilla. Taste is more hazelnut, biscuit, light cocoa, toffee and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is medium, with lightly biting carbonation and a lightly sweet, dusty, drying finish. Highly drinkable. Hazelnut takes center stage without being overbearing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap @ Fermentoren, Aarhus. Pours a dark reddish brown with a small offwhite/light brown head. Aroma has a huge hazelnut sweetness and toastiness in the front, cocoa, vanilla, milk chocolate. Taste has a lot of hazelnut aswell, light bitter notes, coffee, milk chocolate, dry cocoa, caramel. This is a brown ale I can slam!

hauxe (624) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2017
Pours brown from the bottle and leaves a thick frothy head that soon subsides to a thin, creamy layer. A sticky lacing clings to the glass. The aroma is all hazelnut and chocolate. Reminded me sof Nutella. Taste is lightly sweet, nutty, with a chocolate undertones. The finish is bittersweet and nutty, but takes a light sour twist. Overall quite good, although the taste did not quite live up to the aroma.
