It comes in a medium brown flavor.

The aroma has hazelnut and a honey sweetness.

The taste definitely has a hazelnut kick to it. It's sweet and has a nutty pop. It reminds me of other brown ales like Samuel Smith's, but it has a wonderful hazelnut and hop flavor to it. There's a slight coffee bitterness.

It has a nice finish and great carbonation. One of my first Rogue beers and quite good for a brown ale. I wish more had this distinct character.

Served in a standard shaker at The Saucer. Pours a deep, pretty brown color with some ruby hues and limited light penetration. It lacks any head to speak of and leaves no lacing to the glass. The nose is a good strong, sweet malt with some woody, earthy hops undertones. It has a strong smell of toasted cereal and just a hint of that hazelnut. The flavor is just too much hazelnut to me. The hops do a good job of cutting down the double whammy of malty sweetness and the hazelnut, which in this case tastes almost like Starbucks hazelnut syrup has been added. Finishes dry with a pretty good palate feel. I hesitated to review this beer due to my growing distaste for hazelnut purely because I'm sick of all the flavored syrups at coffee bars. Therefore, I really tried to review this one with the style in mind first of all, and my palate second of all (which is what I try to do no matter what). I even when back for a second round just to finalize my thoughts. I really think that overall, the hazelnut was just too much and overwhelmed the natural malt goodness of a good brown.
