look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- Amber brown with barely a finger of head.

Aroma-Sweet chocolate, nutty, and coffee scents.

Taste- The hazelnut is the dominant feature, but that isn't a bad thing by any means. The hazelnut is accompanied by some milk chocolate, coffee, and honey.

Feel-Very malty which leads to a somewhat sticky feel, but nothing that lingers. Full bodied beer with little carbonation.

Overall-Very good beer thats perfect for those with a sweet tooth when it comes to beers. Personally this is too sweet for me to frequently have, but it certainly will be a top choice for a dessert beer in the future.

Bottle bought from the local supermarket

Had high hopes for this as really enjoyed the chocolate stout

As soon as I popped it had a bit of froth rising wanting to get out

Medium brown/sight tinge of red with a finger of head that settles quite quickly

Smells.. this is where the disappointment started for me. No real hazlenut notes here. Vaguely remember a homebrew kit that smelt very close to this. Nothing spacial.

Taste.. much the same. Getting a slight hazelnut taste here and a good finish. Quite abrupt.

Not a bad drop but expected more from a rogue beer after tasting their chocolate stout. Will definitely be buying more of their beers just not this one.
