Bamaboy1975's rating

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

Very interesting beer. There is a subtle hazelnut flavor that come through on a nice background of malt with just enough hops to not make this obnoxiously sweet.

TeijoA (65) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 11, 2017
35,5 cl bottle. Dark red/brown color with not much of a beige head. Aroma is pure hazelnut, especially when stirred. Also malt and peanut butter, some toffee, a little citrus in there. Taste is along the same lines, but with more citrus and the hazelnut comes in very strongly at the finish. Not the biggest fan of hazelnut, but that part works pretty alright here anyway. A bit too much of a brown ale/IPA hybrid though, Id prefer more body, even more malt and less hops (even though its not bitter at all). Beyond that, its a solid brew, pretty high drinkability especially if youre into hazelnut.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2017 This was a pretty good surprise. I chose this one without knowing what to expect and I wasn?t disappointed. I usually tend to drink stronger beers, but its rather low alcohol level should not keep you away from this one as it is one of the most pleasant and tasty beer I had. Very sweet, close to no head and almost oily in mouth, and a delightful, quite present, nutty aroma. Not a beer you?d choose to get a refreshing drink, but goes perfectly with a good meal or a quiet moment. Damn cool! APPROVED BY TAVERNY?S BLACK METAL CREW!
