4.97/5  rDev +22.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance:
Deep amber-brownish color, hazy. Very creamy head. Lacing looks awesome on the glass.

Aroma:
Very malty in the nose.... Toffee, honey, tons of sweet hazelnut and toasted malts.

Taste & Mouthfeel:
Very rich maltiness up front, hazelnut, toffee, honey, toasted malts. Very mild bitterness from the hops in the middle, a little earthy/tea-like. Slight roasted coffee at the end. Mouthfeel is awesome, very silk and creamy.

Finish & Aftertaste:
Very smooth, slight roasted aftertaste.

Overall Impressions:
Very complex for a brown ale, yet very drinkable. Truly one of my favorite.

A- Nice head, that dissipates after a moment, but a very nice pour. I didn't have much lacing, but otherwise, the beer is really nice to look at.

S- Nutty, coffee kind of smell. Smells like toasted malts, and reminds me of sitting by a warm fire.

T- Sweet, but not too much so, smooth, so smooth... mellow taste that manages to incorporate a little bit of slight hops, and give it a slight kick. Really complex and beautiful taste.

F- So smooth. Perfect carbonation. This beer is so smooth I could picture having one, and wondering where it went.

O- Love it. I think it's seriously a great beer.

Poured from tap at Yardhouse into a Pint glass.

Color: Hazy dark brown with a beige head.

Smell: Hazelnut, sweet notes and malt.

Taste: Hazelnut, cream, chocolate, malt.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy (gigidy) with a slight dryness.

Overall: I am in awe how delicious this brew taste. Reminds me a little bit of raisinets. Everyone at the table (4) loved it!It's creamy, seet, hazelnut and a great malt. It is not too heavy or too light. Love it! Love Rogue! Cheers!

Arguably my favorite beer w/ easy access too. I would put the Plinys ahead of this. Tried this first on tap at Kennewick Brews & Blues fest 2010, kept drinking it. The look is a light brown but the smell is a rich aroma of nectar & brown. At first taste the nectar overpowers at the end, which makes it quite pleasing. Initial taste is a rich brown. Beer is just tasty as hell. Bottles are alittle differ taste to it but not much. Had oppt to have this freshly tapped in 3cities & at Rogue in newport & pdx. Ask for a "snickers" then order a "super snickers"...combo choco stout & hazel. Combo dbl choco stout & john john hazlenut. Deadly stuff.

probably the best brown ale i have had to date but i haven't had them all ;)
pours very deep mahogany brown with a nice 1 inch head that dissipates slowly and leaves nice lacing.
smell is nutty sweet, hazelnuts, caramel malts and brown sugar with hints of earthiness perhaps from hops.
taste was sublime. big hit of sweet malts followed by a nice nutty taste that lingers on the tongue and a hoppy essence at in the background is just enough to keep this one in balance. Finshes sticky yet very smooth with a light crispness in the end.
very very enjoyable. I'm sorry I waited so long to give this one a try.

A: Honey, redish brown, mahogany. The color in this beer is so alive that it's like it's about to talk to you. This brew has the looks alright. Nice big, thick head and a wonderful lacing.

S: A lot of wood and hazelnut. You can really get the nutshell in the nose. Real strong and natural, the aroma is very complex but well defined at the same time.

T: You can feel in the mouth pretty much all that was perceived in the aroma. Nice balance between malt, hops, alcohol. Strong, pretty direct. Nice dry finish.

M: Nice body, medium carbonation.

D: Very, very high. I could not get tired of this magnificent brew.

Rogue is my favorite brewery from the USA, I think they do everything right and I think the don't follow trends, they just stick to doing what the do best. Make great beer with an awesome balance. And balance it´s really hard to get in this days, when brewers want to impact dramatically at all costs, sometimes.

This is one awesome beer. Very drinkable. Similar to Newcastle Brown and Robert the Bruce. I love this beer. Very good Hazel Nut taste and very smoooth! One of my favorites. Don't let the funky label keep you from buying this beer, it is awesome. Label does say it won an award for best Brown Ale World Champion, and I believe it. A+ rating.

Maybe I am giving this beer too much credit but I think it is delicious. I think the look of the beer is fantastic in color, nice dark brown in color and a tan creamy head during pour. The mouthfeel of this beer is great extremely smooth which makes it very drinkable. You can smell the strong hazlenut aroma with each sip. I happen to enjoy the smell of hazlenut which makes this beer that much better to me.

The only negative I can see others having about this beer would be the strong scent of hazlenut. I believe one bottle of this or a couple of pints is just perfect. I'm very happy with this beer.
