750ml bottle. 2012 vintage. into a FW teku glass.

dark, murky brown color with a slight head. the smell is very aromatic with roasty coffee and sweet caramel. hazelnuts are also still present. the taste has a bit of coffee, bit of sweetness...tastes kind of like an old school fountain drink. quite tasty. medium bodied, low carbonation. moderately drinkable.

overall pretty good! hard to drink a whole 750 alone but good once.

A 750 ML bottle with no bottled on date. I think I have had this one for 9 or 10 months.

A - Rich mahogany, with a touch of clarity, small head and no lace. Looks thin

S - Hazelnut to the face! Really...that all I can smell!

T - Sweet, and hazelnut coffee. They must have dumped pounds of the hazelnut into this one.

M - Thin and light bodied

O - Interesting, but not that good. Too heavy on the hazelnut. Too thin and light bodied

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

big bottle into a tulip. kept at cellaring conditions.

A: a lot of haze on a muddy brown body. head is slightly off-white and frothy. good retention and lacing.

S: smells like something Rogue makes. loads of sweetness and hazelnut. reminds me of a specialty brew from Dunkin Donuts.

D: tons of sweetness this thing is still loaded with hazelnut. really drinks like a dessert coffee. as it continues, it is almost too sweet. lots of body.

M: moderate carb on a big body.

D: like I said on the nose, drinks a lot like a specialty cup of coffee from DD or any brew Rogue would do. I think I like it but part of me hates the utter lack in complexity. indifferent.
