Bamaboy1975's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Bamaboy1975 (248) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 28, 2013
A- Pours a partially hazy brown/coppery color and doesn't appear to have a whole ton of bubbly carbonation rising to the top. The head is somewhat disappointing though, as it is rather shallow to begin with and the tan colored foam disappears rather quickly into a skirmish of bubbly patchwork. The lacing is also not as good as I thought it would be, as some patchy clumps of head do cling to the side of my pint glass but slide right back into the brew. S- The aromas are quite nice, there being a noticeable rich malty scent with sweet cooked brown sugar mixed into the background. The hazelnut is there too, but it isn't the overpowering aroma that I thought there might be....just subtle essence! I also notice a slightly yeasty aroma the really helps smooth out any bitter notes that there are on the finish. T- The flavors follow the aroma closely and very well! Again, rich caramel sweet malt is the dominant flavor with a hint of milk chocolate and toasted brown sugar. There is an Earthy nuttiness that compliments the sweetness overall on the palate and helps to add a mellow dryness to the beer. The finish is a blend of lingering hazelnut and bitter hops. Very nice indeed! M- This has a very smooth character, with very creamy carbonation hitting the palate. This is a medium-full bodied beer and is probably one of the most well rounded beers a person will come across I believe! This really is a brown nectar and is like velvet desert on the palate! D- Outside of the initial appearance, this beer has it all! It is full flavored and very well balanced with the hazelnut flavor at just the right amount, the alcohol is essentially non-existent, and is so sleek on the palate. I will most definitely purchase this again and highly recommend this beer! Rouge has put their spin on the brown ale style and more than hit a home run with this! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lovely hints of hazelnut and coffee and easy to drink. Light fizz but not too much ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bill Becker (1773) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 16, 2017
From Oct 2005 Poured from the bottle: Gorgeous Amber/brown colour with ample head that remained throughout. The smell is a bit on the light side....sweet but no hint of what the taste will bring. The taste is fantastic! Wonderful mix of chocolate and hazelnuts that are balanced to perfection. I've had this many times before and, Rogue willing, will have it many times in the future. Can you tell that it's one of my favs? ;^)

One of their best staple beers for sure. Very dessert-like texture. Sweet, almost like marshmellows. Portland airport ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Serving: from bottle. Aroma: moderate hazelnut. Appearance: average-sized, frothy, off-white initial head. Clear, dark-amber body. Taste: lightly sweet, hazelnut initial flavor and lightly acidic and smokey finish with long duration. Palate: medium body with watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: somewhat interesting and easy to drink

AwaKe (300) - Laval, CANADA - SEP 30, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2017 En bouteille. Étonnamment chocolaté. Au nez c'est très malt caramel, noix. En bouche c'est très Nutella, choco/noisette, avec une pointe de malt torréfié en finale qui résulte en une amertume style café. Le palais est modéré, ça aurait été idéal avec un peu plus de corps mais somme tout un solide produit.
