Purchased bomber from Shoppette on Kadena, Okinawa, Japan.

P - The beer is poured furiously which creates two fingers of head that wilt into nothing leaving the beer completely unprotected from my mouth.
S - Brown sugar and mild amber malts off the nose.
T - Taste is slightly sweet, again brown sugar, then a hint of bitter bark. The hazelnut nectar addition does lend influence to both the nose and the palate and is noticeable throughout the beer.
B - Medium bodied, mild small bubble carbonation and a lingering hazelnut like after taste.

Overall a nice ABA, fits the style in a delicious manner. I could see this in a pitcher for my friends while bowling or playing pool. Very easy to drink, quaffable and mild.

An imperial Xmas version of this would be rocking. Some spices and higher abv... Rogue are you listening?

Pours an amzing deep reddish brown color with decent head and lacing, not a lot. Aroma is not exceptionally strong, but the nuttiness and male sweetness comes across quite well and subtlely. Taste has a bit of bitter kick to it, but balances pretty well with the roasted malts and nuts. Good brown ale that is drinkable and not overpowering.

Bottle: Poured a dark brown color ale with a foamy dark head with average retention. Aroma is nutty from the hazelnut flavour and malty with some roastiness. Taste is quite enjoyable with the hazelnut easily identifiable and roasted malt balancing everything else. Overall, I would say that this is a very good session beer.

Originally sampled on 30 January 2002. I am writing this review from my notes. This pours nearly clear, root beer brown w/ a slight tan head. Slightly sweet, nutty (duh) taste on the palate. This is a very enjoyable brew, thx beerguy101 for getting it to me
