look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 22oz. bottle into a pint glass.

A: Beautiful dark brown amber color. Looks very high quality, amazing clarity. Solid 3 finger light tan, khaki head with nice tight tiny bubbles, nice and foamy, great lacing, but the head retention is little more than average.

S: Smells nutty, sweet, roasty, roasted malts, notes of hops, a hint of floral citrus, and of course hazelnut. Aroma is a tough on the light side, but you can definitely smell it without too much trouble. Delish!

T: Starts off almost dry and citrusy, with a bit of hops, earthy and bready on the mid palate, finishes with a decadent roasted nutty hazelnut, lightly sweet, and outstanding roasted malts and oats, chocolate, coffee, and dries up just a bit. Could use a bit more hazelnut for a hazelnut beer, but it tastes outstanding nonetheless.

M: Just the perfect amount of carbonation, nice and full bodied, chewy and sticks to the mouth, not sticky, but leaves a perfect coating. I couldn't ask for more in this department.

O: This is excellent. I like Rogue a lot. I wouldn't say this beats their Chocolate Stout in my opinion, but this is a very solid and tasty beer, amazing quality and it's been a wonderful experience to try this for the first time. I will buy this again and I will be recommending this beer with pleasure.

Poured from the tap, has a nice viscous brown semi-transparent brown with a off white head that leaves ok lacing.

S: lots of sweet malt, carmel, hops and of course hazelnuts.

T: follows the nose, great carmel sweetness is blends well with the nutty hazelnuts and ends with a twang of hoppy bite,

M: pretty light, lighter than most brown ales ive had, i think its because of the carbonation

O: a solid brown ale, deff will be buying this again.

Poured from bottle into tulip.
Pours a thick brown molasses. Malty aroma, the hazlenut is present with chocolate notes.
Taste is of bitter malt, nutty, and slight alcohol. This is a great Brown. The hazlenut isnt overpowering, although I was kind of hoping it would be. Its slightly bitter, but it balances well with the malt and nutty combination.
Worth a try for sure.
