Bottle. Poured a nice rich clear medium to dark brown with an average sized light brown head that was mostly diminishing leaving just a little residue hanging around allowing for good lacing. The aroma was of a nutty caramel malt and a doughy yeast with a nice note of hazelnut, brown sugar and a ever so light touch of coffee. It tasted lightly sweet with hints of caramel and coffee in the beginning. Then it matured into a very malty-nutty flavor with the hazelnut being the most pronounced at the finish, although the flavor could of lasted a little longer on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was medium in body and creamy yet slightly watery in texture as alot of brown ales can be with the carbonation being ever so perfectly soft. Overall a very nice malty nut brown ale, this happens to be my favorite style and this brew fits it very well indeed.
Pleasant light hazelnut and cafe latte beer. Desert like, slightly sweet. Pleasant PlanetPhips (8) - - OCT 17, 2017 does not count
Lovely hints of hazelnut and coffee and easy to drink.
Light fizz but not too much

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? ;^) bdleedahl (594) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - OCT 8, 2017
One of their best staple beers for sure. Very dessert-like texture. Sweet, almost like marshmellows. Portland airport

Easily one of the best standard Rogue offerings. Malty and sweet, light roastiness, some sweet caramel and chocolate. 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. miniash (22) - - SEP 24, 2017

Nice dark brown color. Nutty aroma. You really get more and more of the hazelnut with each sip. It starts to taste like Nutella after a whilef but not too sweet at all. Delicious!
