Rogue's beers are notoriously hard to get here in Alberta despite their reputation as being one of the better US craft breweries. This is one of, like, 3 kinds that my store offers. They're also expensive as fuck. This 650ml bottle cost me over 9 dollars! So it is my expectation that this is some very, very good beer. Let's see.

it pours very dark brown, basically the identical shade of brown that the bottle is (and not the picture, but rather the bottle itself. There is a very thick layer of beige head which takes a good long while to settle down. The name of the beer lives up in the smell - hazelnut is definitely the main smell I'm getting here - and that's about it. The taste is fantastic - you're getting a large hit of hazelnut flavour, but it's a lot deeper than that. it's more of a hazelnut latte flavour without the milk - just coffee and hazelnut. There's also a subtle cigar aftertaste going on here - and no, I'm not smoking while doing this review, nor have I smoked any time recently. it's a very complex flavour that just makes me keep coming back for another sip - it's hard for a heavy beer to accomplish this for me, but here we are.

The mouthfeel is very smooth with some subtle carbonation - not too shabby.

Overall, an excellent beer. Rich flavour, nice look, smell that lives up to its name. I may just have to buy another bottle despite the price. Well done Rogue, well done.

Haven't had this one in over five years so it's as good a time as any to return. Beer pours a dark color with a thin fizzy tan head. Nice nutty aroma, with hints of coffee. Sweet flavor on the palette but not too sweet, nutty caramel and toffee flavors. Smooth and unobtrusive mouth feel. An outstanding beer in an under appreciated style, would definitely recommend anytime, but especially as a lighter desert style beer.
