Ooured from bottle into pint glass. Very nice amber/copper pour with a generous 2 finger off white head. Great lacing and retention throughout. Smell is a blend of carmel, brown sugar, roasted malts and nuts. Very inviting. Taste follows the nose and adds a level of complexity that makes this beer special. The carmel notes on the front give way to a nutty, coffee, roasted malts flavor that is spot on. A nice hop finish and this one is tough to set down. Feel is spot on as well. Creamy, silky on the tongue and the perfect level of carbonation. Overall- One of the best, if not the best brown I have had. Great combination of malts, nuts, carmel, sugar and hops. So easy to drink, very sessionable and a great effort from Rogue. A must have-

Bottle from the shop poured at home. Pours medium brown color, slightly clear, with a small white head. Smell is nutty hazelnuts, hint of chocolate. Dryer than expected, but very good hazelnut notes pairing well with the very light chocolate. Not particularly bold in the flavor, but not completely watered down. Finish lingers in a way that I don't like. A bit of a stale aftertaste. Overall a decent brown.

The beer poured out from a bottle. Was clear and copper in colour. Had a sweet molasses nose to it and tasted like a nice red ale. Sweet, malty molasses finish. There were some notes of hazelnut detected in the flavour, but they were not overwhelming.

Would I buy this beer again? Maybe.
