12oz bottle poured into a straight-sided pint glass. No bottling info...hopefully it’s not too ancient.
A: Regrettably poured it straight down the middle and got huge head. Off-white, bubbles on the large side. Lots of lacing. Body is medium brown and slightly hazy.
S: Warm hazelnuts and butterscotch. The aroma REALLY intensifies if you swirl it around a bit. Some hops are there, but way in the background.
T: That’s pretty darn nice. Not a bold brown ale by any means. Nice levels of hazelnut, toasted malt, caramel and some grassy hops.
M: Light body, somewhat watery texture, lively carb. Slight acidic finish. Easy to drink.
O: Not the bold brown that I anticipated, but that’s just fine. This was unique, nicely executed and a pleasure to drink.

12oz bottle into my FW Imperial Nonic
Notes from 03/06/14
A: Dark chestnut brown body with some garnet tones and a nicely conditioned look. Condensed whip of oatmeal colored cream on top with ample stay power. A few slippery dots and ribbons of lace left clinging to the glass.
S: Scented toasted biscuit with hazelnut and cocoa notes. There is some brown sugar sweetness to the aroma and a bit of honey coated cereals mixed in. Smells nice and inviting. Not artificial like or too overpowered by the hazelnut additions.
T: Melba toast, brown sugar, and a mild hazelnut flavoring. I get toasted grains and some nice nutty nuances of chocolate and coffee. There is a moderately low bitterness to the beer and a touch of earthiness coming through. Well balanced with a light dry crisp nature. Alcohol is completely masked making for a nice session. A tasty little brown ale.
M: Body is moderate full and mostly creamy with a light drying at the finish. A touch watered down in the end but with a clean very retreat.
D: A nice and toasty brown with good balance and some subtle flavor additions. I particularly appreciate the restrained approach here. This may in fact be one of Rogue’s better offerings.
