A nice dark brown colour with a thick tan head that hits the road quick.
Smells very nutty, malty and sweet.
I thought it tasted alright, nothing amazing, almost too sweet for my liking, lots of hazelnut and bready malts, with a subtle hint of hops.
Thin mouthfeel, an easy drinking beer, I don't know what all the fuss is with this beer, I thought it was an OK brown ale, that's it.

One of my favorite beers ever. Dark brown color with a small 1/4" white head that laces the glass. The smell is sweet and nutty and mimics the actual taste of the beer. Tastes of light coffee up front, but sweet caramel and almond on the back end. It is tough to stop at just one of these, and got my normally non adventurous travelmates addicted as well (sampled at the Portland airport)

I am a big fan of Rogue and couldn't wait to see this beer on the shelf at the local wine and spirits store. The big old 750 mil was a great bottle to share and sample.
A - A nice dark brown ale. Not to cloudy like some. Not really as heavy as others either.
S - The dark roasted hazlenut was the front with lots of sweet chocolate behind it.
T - Wow. It was much lighter in taste. A great brown ale with a hint of hazlenut. Definitely not overwhelming at all.
M - Nice and creamy with tons of bubbles. Great finish creamy upfront then fades slowly away.
D - It would be a good beer to drink with dinner but not an all the time beer. A little light for my brown ale tastes.
Overall a a great beer and cant wait to pair it at my next beer tasting. Thanks Rogue.

Pours a deep brown colour, with a creamy brown head. Wonderful aroma of hazelnut, toasted notes, chocolate and grain. Smells like hazelnut chocolate. By far, the best brown ale I've had. The hazelnut flavour is insane. Shots of hazelnut flavouring, rich, nutty, balanced by a good bitterness. Wonderful, easy drinking brown ale. Enjoyed by all of my friends.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Duvel Belgian Tulip glass.
Appearance: A semi-aggressive pour resulted in a nice 1/4" beige head that retired to a thin foamy ring. Decent lacing when I tilt my glass. A darker brown glow was present when held up to the light.
Smell: A relatively light aroma of roasted hazelnuts, a little bit of toffee, vanilla and hint of malt. I was expecting a lot more going on with the nose but I found it too light for my liking.
Taste: Malty vanilla sweetness, definitive hazelnut & toffee middle with an ever so slight bitterness on the finish. Wow, the taste was much better than the smell. I can see why this beer does so well in the ratings with taste.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy on the tongue with the perfect level of carbonation.
Overall: A very easy drinking brown ale with a lot of flavor. Rogue surely nailed the style with this beer. If I'm going to drink a Rogue beer over 6% ABV my preference would still be Dead Guy Ale.

Pours a medium brown color that is transparent most of the way. A bubbly tan head forms at the top of the glass. Smell is a nutty presence but mostly seems a bit off with some grain and corn type aroma. Taste does remind me a little bit of peanut butter. Mouth feeling is strange since this one is kind of watery and little carbonation.

This beer came to the table as a black beer with no head. The smell was nutty with a strong hazelnut scent. The taste was similar with a good malt backbone. The mouthfeel was pretty moderate and smooth. Of the nut brown beers, this is probably the best I've had. I've never been a fan of the style, but this beer may change my mind. Now if they could just sell this stuff in 12 oz. at cheaper prices.
