355ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear brown, thin off-white head. Aromas are chocolate and light nuts, touch of spice. Taste has more chocolate sweetness. Finishes crisp enough, not sticky. Good.

On tap. Served a dark brown color with a nice tan head that fades to lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts, hint of chocolate withbit of malt sweetness. Taste follows with roasted malt, hazelnut and bitof chocolate. Mild bitterness and the finish is quite dry. Medium body, smooth and creamy with a nice malty richness. Enjoyable beer. Nice take on the style.

Mmm delicious. Lots of malty goodness and nutty hazelnut flavor. Bomb. On tap it was real smooth. Light and dry, but also filling.

Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar has a very thick, cream-colored head, a pretty dark, obscured, brown appearance, and decent lacing left behind. The aroma is of medium-roasted barley malt, sweetness, and hazelnut. Taste is the same, with a tea note and low bitterness (I’d never guess 33 IBU). Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar finishes dry, easy going, and nice. RJT

Poured with short-lived light tan 1" head. Vibrant clear brown color. Many bubbles on side of glass like a soda. Very low aroma of hazelnut, had to sniff repeatedly and vigorous to detect. Mostly malt aroma. Adequate balance of malt sweetness and bitter, nice to drink, but didn't pick up as rich nutty character as I had expected. A bit metallic aftertaste. Low to Moderate body, high carbonation - very burpy. Overall drinkable brown ale but on the boring side, I had expected more special character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is one of my favorite beers, if not my favorite! Rich tones of coffee and grains, not too heavy and pairs great with red meat! I haven't had anything from Rogue that I do not like, yet! Lol

tectactoe (1167) - Michigan, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle: Swampy brown with a copper edge tint, light clarity & light haze throughout; a soapy, beige head stretched out thinly on top. Aroma is full force sticky toffee, more so than hazelnut even. Actually only a very mild hazelnut tone in the aroma. Slightly artificial, like concentrate with an undertone of residual sweetness. Off-notes of wet cardboard & dry rot... What? Is this oxidized already? Hazelnut is more relevant on the palate... Hazelnut, cola, toffee, dry cocoa powder, & nuts, leading into a lasting woodsy & earthy finish. I’m getting that weird, wet cardboard flavor & it’s really turning me off. Not as sweet as I was expecting... Rather dry, nutty aftertaste. Wasn’t a huge fan of this one... Not sure what that cardboard was all about. I’d like to try another bottle to see if things are different, but I won’t be rushing to do so.

Strong flavors of artificial hazelcut, but very watery, and overly nutty. Not something I’d buy again.
