Bought the bomber from Total Wine today. Poured into glass.
Appearance reveals beautiful reds and rich browns. Slightly cloudy from carbonation. Very light brown, tan head.
Strong hazelnut aroma. Malts and spices in the background.
Wow. This beer is an explosion of hazelnut and luckily for me I am a fan of hazelnuts. Rich and abundant flavor! As you swallow, the hazelnut slowly calmer and you can begin to taste the malts and spices you smelled in the background. After taste is an ever so slight hopiness. Great flavor!
Mouthfeel is attractive. Very medium bodied. Great carbonation without being too fizzy.
I thoroughly enjoy this beer. Tastes exactly as advertised. Rogue is one of the best brewers in the nation for a reason. This beer is just another example. Bravo!

Pours a cloudy medium brown color with orange/red highlights. I got a finger's worth of creamy tan head with an excellent showing of lace and a good amount of retention.

Aromas are fantastic -- rich and sweet malts are dominant and remind me of brew day for my homebrews. Smells of caramel and molasses combine with nutty and earthy notes. I could smell this beer all day long...

The taste features dark malts and chocolate, with some earthy, maple character. Other flavors are nuts, oak/wood, and roasted malts. A big and malty beer, but the sweetness doesn't overpower at all.

Medium-bodied, with a good amount of carbonation. The finish is of nuttiness and sweetness, but is also balanced by the earthy hops.

Overall, this was a wonderful beer -- one I'd recommend and would seek out again.
