3.63/5  rDev -10.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

APPERANCE:
Dark, almost black color with some ruby highlights. Tight off white head that lingers down to about half an inch

SMELL:
Fragrant roasted nut aroma, which pretty much dominates the aroma profile. Smell reminds me of a milk tea place I frequent. Very unique and "homey" smell, and makes you feel the same way a whiff of coffee in a cafe does

TASTE:
The roasted nutty nose carries through the palate and is the first thing you taste, lasting all throughout until the finish. Some dark bread and caramel sweetness pops out in the background, a hint of pepper spice, warming alcohol. It has an earthy tone to it. Herbal hoppiness is only apparent in the aftertaste. Finish is not as dry, with a herbal, earthy, nuttiness lingering in your tongue afterwards

MOUTHFEEL:
Heavy mouthfeel with a syrupy feel to it, which accentuates the earthiness even more. Carbonation is subdued but can be felt

OVERALL:
A very predominantly nutty brown ale. The unique roasted nut note is pretty much the star here, reducing everything else to faint hints. The flavor is to my liking but I found it just a tad too dominant. I would've love some more balance here. Nevertheless, a good solid brew. It's a good substitute for coffee beers, sipping one away amongst intelligent conversation

Bought the bomber from Total Wine today. Poured into glass.
Appearance reveals beautiful reds and rich browns. Slightly cloudy from carbonation. Very light brown, tan head.
Strong hazelnut aroma. Malts and spices in the background.
Wow. This beer is an explosion of hazelnut and luckily for me I am a fan of hazelnuts. Rich and abundant flavor! As you swallow, the hazelnut slowly calmer and you can begin to taste the malts and spices you smelled in the background. After taste is an ever so slight hopiness. Great flavor!
Mouthfeel is attractive. Very medium bodied. Great carbonation without being too fizzy.
I thoroughly enjoy this beer. Tastes exactly as advertised. Rogue is one of the best brewers in the nation for a reason. This beer is just another example. Bravo!
