22 oz bottle served in a stemmed stubby flute.

A: A fine dark brown color; Cloudy with a sudsy/creamy head. Head has only a short life.

S: Aroma of light malt is nearly buried under the powerful aroma of roasted hazelnuts.

T: A remarkable nutty flavor; unusual, but true to the "Hazelnut Brown" label. Markedly nutty; more so than any beer I can remember. This component is mainly hazelnut but there is a bit of generic roasted nut flavor there too. It finishes with an extravagant roasted hazelnut and malt flavor, with hints of chocolate, oats, and spicy hops. Excellent bitter/sweet balance.

M: smooth; rather full bodied; excellent, moderate carbonation.

O: This is a world-class nut brown ale. Not to be missed by any beer aficionado, this is an easy-drinking beer I'll be recommending to others.

#82 on the beers of fame list as of last fall.

This might actually be comparable to CCB Maduro. Very translucent brown body. It smells dry and full of hazelnut. slightly sweet smell. The taste is just right for a brown. Light and sweet. Slightly dry, but only enough to even things out. Light hazelnut flavor which hides the sweet base. Finishes nutty and sweet.

A: single finger head on a clear amber body. Excellent lacing.

S: chocolate, toffee, nuts, caramel malts.

T: Light roasted malts, milk chocolate, mild oak, hazelnut, burnt toast and a hint of vanilla.

M: very very smooth. Medium creamy body and lighter side of moderate carbonation.

Overall: this is an excellent brown ale. Many of these are boring and simple but this one is smooth, highly drinkable and complex. One of rogues best.
