Had this beer on tap at the Yardhouse last night.Very light and easy to drink with a strong nutty taste to it.It had a fruit taste to it although it`s hard to identify what it is.I have to say I like it very much.I have had a couple of Rogue beers with mixed luck but I would say this is Second best to the Chocolate Stout.At 6.2ABV I would say its a Semi-functional beer.Give it a try.

This is a pretty tasty brew—sweet, but with a very mild hop character appropriate for a brown. That said, I feel like I could probably grab any decent brown, add a little hazelnut extract (which, as they state on the bottle, is how they get the hazelnut flavor) and end up with basically exactly this.

A: [2.75] No head formation. The color is a dark brown - like root beer - with a slight reddish cast. The bottle does not indicate ABV or IBU. There is some born on code on the bottom - but I am not sure what it means.

S: [4.00] Toffee, brown sugar some coffee.Slight hint of hard apple cider. The overall smell is pleasant.

T: [3.75] Caramel and toffee. The caramel that is on caramel apples. Biscuity breadiness.

M: [4.00] It is much creamier and "thick" than I anticipated. I thought it would be thin and watery. It has a nice body to the beer. Carbonation is totally in check.

O: [3.75] There is no sense of alcohol (I would guess ~5.5% ABV). This is a sweet and mellow bodied beer. It has a unique flavor profile. The flavor is robust and caramelized. I really liked it.
