This is a great beer. Poured a rich head, about an inch, good retention. The beer is a dark amber or brown. Smells and tastes exactly as advertised. Hazel nut is clearly evident, and well done I will add. Sort of sweet, maybe a hint of caramel.

Its a pretty crisp mouth feel. Such a good beer, I would easily buy more of this if it were not so expensive. I have to say I have yet to be disappointed by a Rogue made beer.

This is well worth picking up.

From the 22 ouncer with no date, lot code, or other identifying note. Sampled on March 12, 2010. The pour is a handome mahogany brown color with decent clarity. The head is silky and tan and about a half-inch thick. The hazelnuts in the brew are evident in the aroma and because of that, it is one of the more unique aromas I have tried. Other than hazelnuts the overall characteristic is sweet and sugary. There is a nice full-bodied texture followed by a prodigious mix of caramel malts, hazelnuts, bread, and maple in the flavor. Bitter hops make a faint appearance but they are overpowered by the sweeter sensations. Rather good.
