12oz bottle into my FW Imperial Nonic
Notes from 03/06/14

A: Dark chestnut brown body with some garnet tones and a nicely conditioned look. Condensed whip of oatmeal colored cream on top with ample stay power. A few slippery dots and ribbons of lace left clinging to the glass.

S: Scented toasted biscuit with hazelnut and cocoa notes. There is some brown sugar sweetness to the aroma and a bit of honey coated cereals mixed in. Smells nice and inviting. Not artificial like or too overpowered by the hazelnut additions.

T: Melba toast, brown sugar, and a mild hazelnut flavoring. I get toasted grains and some nice nutty nuances of chocolate and coffee. There is a moderately low bitterness to the beer and a touch of earthiness coming through. Well balanced with a light dry crisp nature. Alcohol is completely masked making for a nice session. A tasty little brown ale.

M: Body is moderate full and mostly creamy with a light drying at the finish. A touch watered down in the end but with a clean very retreat.

D: A nice and toasty brown with good balance and some subtle flavor additions. I particularly appreciate the restrained approach here. This may in fact be one of Rogue’s better offerings.
