A: Honey, redish brown, mahogany. The color in this beer is so alive that it's like it's about to talk to you. This brew has the looks alright. Nice big, thick head and a wonderful lacing.

S: A lot of wood and hazelnut. You can really get the nutshell in the nose. Real strong and natural, the aroma is very complex but well defined at the same time.

T: You can feel in the mouth pretty much all that was perceived in the aroma. Nice balance between malt, hops, alcohol. Strong, pretty direct. Nice dry finish.

M: Nice body, medium carbonation.

D: Very, very high. I could not get tired of this magnificent brew.

Rogue is my favorite brewery from the USA, I think they do everything right and I think the don't follow trends, they just stick to doing what the do best. Make great beer with an awesome balance. And balance it´s really hard to get in this days, when brewers want to impact dramatically at all costs, sometimes.

probably the best brown ale i have had to date but i haven't had them all ;)
pours very deep mahogany brown with a nice 1 inch head that dissipates slowly and leaves nice lacing.
smell is nutty sweet, hazelnuts, caramel malts and brown sugar with hints of earthiness perhaps from hops.
taste was sublime. big hit of sweet malts followed by a nice nutty taste that lingers on the tongue and a hoppy essence at in the background is just enough to keep this one in balance. Finshes sticky yet very smooth with a light crispness in the end.
very very enjoyable. I'm sorry I waited so long to give this one a try.
