Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into my Evolution pint glass.

a - Pours a deep mahogany brown color with two inches of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Head only lasts for a few seconds and leaves no lacing on the glass.

s - Smells of caramel malts, roasted malts, toasted malts, hazelnuts, light vanilla, and bready malts. Very malty but pretty nice.

t - Taste follows the nose pretty closely. Tastes of roasted malts, caramel malts, vanilla, bready malts, toasted and burnt malts, and light nuts/hazelnut. More vanilla or cream than the nose which I like; a step up.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. Smooth, and pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a pretty good brown ale. I liked the taste a little more than the nose, due to more vanilla/cream. Was pretty easy to drink a whole bomber, would have it again.

A - Cloudy red-brown with a one finger off white head. Head disappeared to absolutely ZERO by the time I was near the end of my mug, with no lacing to speak of.

S - Musty, earthy, and a good amount of the hazelnut promised in the title.

T - Intial taste is an earthy malt, followed by a big blast of hazelnut. Very strange hop character comes through right at the end. I expected this to have more intense and complex flavors for a brown, with more roasted/toasted notes. It just wasnt there. Disappointing. Lastly, I dont feel the hazelnut taste worked well with the hops and other components.

M - Severly undercarbonated. Just kind of sits in your mouth, leaving a syrupy feel when swallowed.

O - I love brown ales, and was eager to try this, but overall I would have to say this is a misfire from Rogue. Lack of carbonation, off flavor combinations, and too much hazelnut (and not much else) left me scratching my head. I wont be buying this again. Give me a Breckenridge Mighty Brown or a DFH Indian Brown Ale anyday.

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

Appearance: Crystal brown with yeastiness apparent. Good foam, great lacing. Very unique color.

Smell: Brown sugar and roasted hazelnuts. Subdued but refreshing. Very dessert-like.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Excellent! Finaly a nut brown that I really enjoy. Burnt toffee sugar, molasses, and roasted hazelnuts. I worried the hazelnuts would overpower, but that is not the case at all. Nice clean finish for this style that. This works to whet your whistle, but still refreshes with satisfaction.

Drinkability: Great for any occasion.

Overall: A knockout.
