A - Brown ale with a nice tan head. Head disappeared pretty quickly leaving no traces of lacing. Slightly cloudy but no sediment floating around.

S - Hazelnut, strong booze, brown sugar. Smells sour/tart with a lot of booze.

T - I sincerely hope this isn't supposed to taste like hazelnut vinegar. Yuck. I'm hoping this is an old bottle or something because this is disgusting. Not much else to say, I wish there was a positive because I really am a Rogue fan.

M - Sour on the tongue. Bitter beer face!!!

O - Not sure if what I got in the bottle was the intended flavor or not, but if it was it's one of the worst beers I've ever had.

Bomber poured into a pint glass.

Appearance- Caramel Brown color with white head.

Smell- Rum, toasted nut, toffee, and sweet malt.

Taste- I get a caramel nutty flavor up front followed by mellow rum notes. Works so well together. I wish there was more rum barrel aged beers to go along with bourbon barrel aged beers.

Mouthfeel- A light medium which is just a tad bit on the watery side.

Overall- Very complex flavors and smells makes for a solid beer.
