Unfortunately, I drank this as part of Brewer's Night at Latona Tavern in Seattle -- this was one of several Rogue beers I had. I can't give a proper review, as I didn't take notes while drinking it. However, it was the first and only time this beer will be served cask aged, and I couldn't let that occasion pass without note.
The main thing I can comment on is the flavor: nutty, definite hazelnut taste, but without coming across as a gimmicky beer. That is, the hazelnut blends right in to the maltiness and hoppiness of the beer without seeming like an adjunct. Medium body (that is, it didn't stand out in my mind as too thin or too heavy) and an uncertain color--Latona's lighting is not the best--round out what is certain to be the most unique beer you've tasted in a while. Recommend you have this with chocolate and maybe some butter wafers to get the full effect; I can't imagine strawberry or raspberry preserves would detract, either.
Likes: flavor, mouthfeel, appearance.
Dislikes: limited availability :)
Serving type: cask

Heard great things about this beer so decided to give it a shot. Here goes:
A: OK, not good or bad. Beer pours an opaque brown; no light gets through. Very little head and moderate lacing.
S: Wow, simply outstanding. Can detect nutmeg, nutella, hazelnut, peanut butter and chocolate. Very little hops, however; this is a pure malt brew.
T: Taste follows the nose. Again, it's outstanding. Lots of nutella, hazelnut, peanut butter, chocolate, etc. The beer is a pure malt brew; I can't really detect any hops.
M: Very good but nothing special. Somewhat creamy but not very much so.
O: An excellent brown ale. Lots of nuts and chocolate. Would highly recommend it.
