Appearance is a clear, inviting brown with good lacing as you go.

Aroma is quite impressive; nothing short of hazelnut, roasty malt, and the smallest tad of hop in the background.

Taste is a smooth, balanced brown - somewhat mild, overall, for rogue - but thankfully they tame this down so you can really taste the hazelnut; there is no missing or mistaking it. Personally, I'm not a big hazelnut guy, but I must admit I'm impressed that they pin down the flavor and meld it so well with the brown ale overall.

The beer sits light on your tongue, not heavy or overbearing by any stretch. Overall quite a pleasant experience; one of the better examples of a flavored beer, for sure. If you're a brown ale type, and have a thing for hazelut in other beverage arenas, you can't pass this one up.

Served on tap in a pint glass.

A- Great looking beer! Dark amber to reddish. Not much head but it may be due to the tap pressure settings.

S- Sweet and a hinch of fruitiness followed by a bit of wood but not a big smell.

F- Berries on the beginning, followed by a perfectly achieved nutty flavor. At the end a pleasant cocoa aftertaste very similar to the Yoo-Hoo! drink.

O- Very nice beer! Certainly I will have it again.

This one is pretty strange. At first pour it looks amazing; deep reddish amber, small head, tight bubbles, great carbonation. Nose gets a little weird; biscuity, malty, and hazelnut... which doesn't seem to quite fit. Taste is very malty, syrupy sweet with hazelnut overtones. Sweetness lingers. Overall a nice effort, pretty much as expected.
