A rich, brown brew with a quickly dissipating head. Crisp and dry and nutty with a hint of caramel, sweet malts and coffee in the finish. Nice and smooth and easy to drink, although nothing is particularly striking, except the coffee in the finish.

Brown nectar indeed. Pours dark brown, with sweet malts and a distinct hazelnut flavor, as oh-so-subtely suggested on the bottle. However, the flavor seemed to thin as the bottle was drained. A good beer, but I've had better browns.

hazelnut color and cream head. Aroma has a hazel-chocolate and a gramcracker smell. Tastes a little like a gram cracker, with good hazelnut. Mild carbonation.

Wow. Can you say hazelnut. This is a very good beer but unless you like hazelnut flavoring, this may be a bit much.

Not much aroma or head. Nice brown color and not as sweet as I thought it would be. Toasted/Roasted flavor.

Bottle - Not an over-abundance of aroma. Dark Brown color. Roasted malt flavor. Complex but not overwhelming. Clear finish.

Given the accolades it has received here, I suppose I expected a bit more than this thinnish brown ale happened to offer. It had its moments, but never approached anything resembling greatness.

Beautiful rich deep red-brown beer. The hazelnut tones are not overwhelming, but subtle and linger in the palate after the beer is down. Small lasting head, moderate carbonation. The palate is complex, a rich nutty flavor with a coffee base and a little sting in the back of the throat. Long lasting nutty palate with a lingering aroma of hazelnut.

VAYankee (327) - Virginia, USA - MAR 19, 2003
A dark brown ale with a foamy off-white head. Upon opening the bottle I noticed a strong, pleasing aroma of with a hint of hazelnut that begs 'drink me'. This nectar starts out with nutty, slightly sweet flavor that goes down smooth. This is followed by roasted hop aftertaste. This gets my vote as the best brown ale around.

Rib Eye (147) - USA - MAR 18, 2003
A damned good brown ale! Not nearly as sweet as some of the reviews here would lead one to believe. There is a strong hop character to balance the malty profile of this winner from Rogue.
