Had this Rogue variation on tap. I think it might be the same recipe as the Morimoto but it definitely has a different flavor profile on tap. I like the bottle version but this stuff is really good on tap. Dark brown, hazelnut, color. Nice creamy tan head. Moderate lacing. Aroma is coffee with hazelnut and more nuttyness. Flavor leans on the sweet side with caramel and toffee malts. Nutty base. Lots of roasted hazelnut flavor in here. Creamy. A bit of coffee in here. Finish is somewhat dry but lingers. Mouthfeel is excellent. The flavors transition and work with each other quite well. There's a nice all around thickness to this beer. Better on tap than bottle imo.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a New Belgium globe.

Appearance: Pours a very dark caramel brown with yellow-orange highlights and a 2 finger creamy light tan head which dissipates into fairly large bubbles. Nice lacing.

Smell: Roasted hazelnuts and and caramel with a touch of vanilla and butter layered on top of the mild mustiness I usually get from a brown ale.

Taste: Vanilla up front followed by hazelnut and sweet malt before ending with mildly bitter hops. Aftertaste is a mix of nuttiness and bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very smooth.

Drinkability: High drinkability. Finishing a bomber by yourself will be no problem.

Overall: Excellent beer overall. The hazelnut really adds a nice character to the brown ale style. I'd recommend giving this one a try.

Pours dark redish brown with dense 1 fingered persistent head in a pint glass.
Aroma of caramel, nuts and mild chocolate.
Flavors similar with beautiful blend of dark crystal malts and hazelnuts peaking in and out of chocolate and sweet caramel malts. Saaz hops just noticable but essental to the flavor complexity. Full body with round dextrinous mouthfeel.
No worries about strong overbearing spices or malts. Just a little soft hazelnut lingers for a pleasant goodbye in the bittersweet finish.

Very drinkable paired well with brownies or any sweet desert.
Thanks Jason and Jenifer.
