look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a dark tea brown color with a beige head that displays reasonable longevity and leaves some bolts of lace

Smell: Milk chocolate and nuts aroma

Taste: Starts with a chocolately flavor that, after the swallow starts to display some hazelnut complexity; the finish has a touch of vanilla and is a little bitter, but more like nut skin bitter than hoppy bitter

Mouthfeel: Medium to thick body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: Easy to drink and a definite improvement on the typical brown ale

Serving type: bottle

Not as impressed as I was with the bottled version.

Average brown ale appearance, slightly soapy head with not much volume. Not unattractive color, very rich. Good lacing definitely knocks the score up a notch.

The aroma seems very muted and a little weak. Mostly sweet, biscuity malt, with no sign of the hops or the hazelnut.

The flavor is just so good. A bit like a nicely flavored coffee in that it doesn't let the flavor overtake the drink. Toasted malt up front, slightly sweet, with a pleasantly full mouthfeel for style. Carbonation is excellent, and allows the hazelnut on the finish to expand on the palate and stick around, maximizing its usefulness.

Very impressive hazelnut character, mild and unobtrusive but inarguably present, it's a very nice piece of balancing work done by Rogue.

Serving type: on-tap
