can't believe this is my first time having this. roasted hazelnut blasts out of the glass with every whiff. Just enough hops to bitter it up, nutty taste with a good.roast quality. This will be my go to Thanksgiving beer for years to come. For now, it's perfect for a happy hour brown.

Mouthfeel is watery and appropriate, clean finish that leaves just a touch if the 13 malts that shape it. The only thing to improve is the higher than necessary alcohol by volume.

Quality from Rogue. I knew they could do it!

Another fine quality product from Rogue.

Purchased in a 22 oz bomber. My 2 cents about Rogue's "expensive" bomber controversy is that I'd really rather purchase it this way than in a six-pack. If I'm not blown away by a beer, I'd much rather only drink 22 ounces of it than 72.

And with that being said, this beer is worth the $5 bottle.

The scent gets your taste buds thumping in anticipation. Pleasantly sweet with maple-syrup tones, but not sicky-sweet or overpowering.

This beer fills your mouth full-up with its complexity. There's so much going on... It's hard to describe it all. I will leave some things to you to find out for yourself. I will say the hazelnut flavor is fully present & very well balanced in the mix.

Definitely a highly drinkable beer worth your $$$. This is easily the best brown ale i've ever had.

A: Brilliant brown under a ½” white foam collar that dissipates to a thick film.
S: Big nutrella nose at first but it slowly calms down.
T: Nutrella up front that fades to nuts in general by the aftertaste.
F: Creamy medium body and carbonation.
O: This is an interesting beer but there was just a shade too much hazelnut that dominates the brown ale flavors.
