Dark brown in color with a hazelnut aroma, a rich nutty flavor and a smooth malty finish. Hazelnut Brown Nectar Ale is a blend of Great Western 2-row Pale, Munich, Hugh Baird Brown, Crystal 80 and Crystal 135, Carastan, and Beeston Pale Chocolate malts; hazelnut extract; Perle and Saaz hops.

22 oz. Good dark amber appearance and creamy head. Body is very weak and taste lacks the fullness of Bells' Best. The hazelnut would have been good if it was bolstered by some roasted maltiness. I was disappointed but will allow for the fact that this may have been a bad bottle/too late in the season or it is just better on tap.

Have had both in the bottle and out of a keg. Definitely the quintessential Brown Ale. Lovely nose of sweet malt and hazelnuts, with a deep, brown color and a full, light brown head. The mouth begins with rich maltiness which is suddenly chased by a mouth-filling nuttiness that coats the tongue and throat. The aftertaste lingers and seems to change as it lies in the back of the throat. One of the best beers made.

rauchbier (3607) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2003
Bottled. Deep red brown, thin creamy beige head and good condition. Low chocolate and nut aromas, decidedly hazelnutty in the mouth, like liquid nutella, with a faintly tart edge and a dry bitterness developing in the aftertaste

Nice brown color, with a creamy white head, and a mildly nutty aroma. I thought this tasted very nice, the hazelnut flavor well balanced with the malt and hops. Smooth from front to back, definately worth a try.

Purists may be skeptical, but this is genius. Nuts are one of the few non-traditional flavors welcome in beer. No to jalapenos, no to cotton candy, yes to hazelnut. This brew is brilliant!

Very good brew! Nice nutty tone with very good malts - chocolately taste compliments the nut perfectly!

zborgerd (187) - Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2003
Pours dark/medium brown. Little to no head that goes quickly. Nutty, coffee aroma. Mocha, hazelnut taste. Could be a little better for me if it had a bit more alcohol and a creamier consistency. Otherwise, very well done.

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - MAY 26, 2003
Pours a medium tan head with fine-small bubbles. It had fair lacing on the sides of my mug. It had a brown body. It has a coffee flavor to it which I enjoyed. There was no bitterness to this brew. It had a slight sweet aftertaste to it that was not overwhelming to me.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 26, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew pours a creamy small head of light brown bubbles and a semi transparent dark brown body. With a mild malt aroma, this brew has a taste of caramel and spice with just a hint of coffee flavoring. It goes down very smoothly yet leaves a slight dry lingering after taste of the coffee flavoring.

Another great Rogue product. Pours nicely and looks like a brown ale/stout hybrid. Tastes that way too - a teriffic combination. Feel and finish near perfect. This IS nectar. Why didn't I buy more bottles?
