Color is off brown with darkening hues. Off white head, copious amounts of lacing. Malt's-a-popping in the nose. Some sweet cherry port, chicory, and hazelnut. Flavor is sweet but that is little surprise...reminiscent of tiramisu but less of a coffee taste...toffee, dried cherry. Just tons of malt without any balancing agent.

A bit too sweet to make an evening out of. Theres a ton of flavor going on and its very entertaining to sip. Just a bit so sweet that it gets a bit uncomfortable on the tongue after a pint.

bought a 22oz bottle at world market in lansing, michigan. ($3.99)
nice packaging, always a fan of rogue theme, pours a rich brown with reddish highlight from the light shining through, not much of a head, thin and fizzled out fast.
aroma is malty, nutty, hint of hops. the nuttyness is perfect.
the flavor malty, hopsack, nutty, carmelized malt, ending with a sustained nuttyness.
this beer is really good, not overly nutty, very malty, and smooth.
tasty, tasty, tasty.

A nice dark brown colour with a thick tan head that hits the road quick.

Smells very nutty, malty and sweet.

I thought it tasted alright, nothing amazing, almost too sweet for my liking, lots of hazelnut and bready malts, with a subtle hint of hops.

Thin mouthfeel, an easy drinking beer, I don't know what all the fuss is with this beer, I thought it was an OK brown ale, that's it.

One of my favorite beers ever. Dark brown color with a small 1/4" white head that laces the glass. The smell is sweet and nutty and mimics the actual taste of the beer. Tastes of light coffee up front, but sweet caramel and almond on the back end. It is tough to stop at just one of these, and got my normally non adventurous travelmates addicted as well (sampled at the Portland airport)

Poured into a pint glass and got a thick white head that was pretty thick and covered a dark crystal clear amber body that had some mild carbonation in it; the head eventually thins out, but maintains a thin even carpet of bubbles with some thick lacing. It has a strong brown sugar and caramel smell to it, along with some wheat and sweet bread smells to it; there is also a very slight tart smell of raisins to it. It has a smooth semi-bitter taste and is sweet all around; there is some mild hazelnut and hops mixed in as well as some maple syrup flavors and a hint of coffee in its aftertaste and some prunes too. It has a medium body that's very satisfying.

Pours a deep brown colour, with a creamy brown head. Wonderful aroma of hazelnut, toasted notes, chocolate and grain. Smells like hazelnut chocolate. By far, the best brown ale I've had. The hazelnut flavour is insane. Shots of hazelnut flavouring, rich, nutty, balanced by a good bitterness. Wonderful, easy drinking brown ale. Enjoyed by all of my friends.

Pours a medium brown color that is transparent most of the way. A bubbly tan head forms at the top of the glass. Smell is a nutty presence but mostly seems a bit off with some grain and corn type aroma. Taste does remind me a little bit of peanut butter. Mouth feeling is strange since this one is kind of watery and little carbonation.

This beer came to the table as a black beer with no head. The smell was nutty with a strong hazelnut scent. The taste was similar with a good malt backbone. The mouthfeel was pretty moderate and smooth. Of the nut brown beers, this is probably the best I've had. I've never been a fan of the style, but this beer may change my mind. Now if they could just sell this stuff in 12 oz. at cheaper prices.
