From the brewer

Dedicated to the homebrewer in each of us! The homebrewer who inspired this creation is Chris Studach, a friend of Rogue’s resident wizard John Maier, who added a Northwest twist to the classic style by adding hazelnuts for the host homebrew at the 1993 American Homebrewers Association
convention. Chris put the nut in nut brown!

Who's been drinking this

Delighted that this is still very enjoyable after over a thousand beers in between. Light, caramel sweet and overtly nutty.
Big hazelnut flavors, lighter bodied for such a dark beer. Some roasted malts follow the hazelnut start and the finish is nice and clean

Smoother on draft than in the bottle. Both are still excellent.
All the best parts of a good porter plus some hazelnut! Goes well with popcorn and Star Trek. Or anything else, really.
