Not really a brown ale. Belongs in the herb and spice catagory. It is hard to drink more than just one.

Rogue Brown Nectar is truly a beer worth trying if you like an excellent Brown ale with a unique flavor. This beer makes my top ten list.

Best Brown I have tried so far. Much more flavorful than Newcastle. A little more hoppy than I expected, but I guess that’s Rogue for you. I agree with one poster that said it was a little thin on the palate (even though it poured thick), but it had enough going on that I still felt it deserved a ’4’ for palate. Nice:)

Well, Rogue left out the hops and bumped up the malt character on this one. It makes for an incredibly rich, nutty and sweet brown. Pleasant deep brown color with an eggshell head that didn’t stick around. Plenty of vanilla, toffee, sweet chocolate and subdued nuttiness in both aroma and flavor. You could smell this one a mile away. Starts very sweet and finishes a bit more subdued and refined. There’s alot going on in this one.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2003 The beer disembogues a transpicuous deep ruby color with a Bunyanesque sized head that is spumescent in texture and a beauteous tan color, as it ever so slowly transmogrifies the lace forms a thick and glutinous sheet to meld with the glass. A sweet nutlike malted aroma dominates hints of vanilla, quite fresh and clean, start quite sweet with the top a bit thin for my liking. Finish is moderate in carbonation with the hop personable in their spicy bite, quite dry with a lingering bittersweet flavor, drinkable as all Rogue beers are, but certainly not their best “Whatever” the name.

This is a very good specialty that’s great for dessert.

beautiful creamy dark head, perfect carbonation, smooth taste, with a extra hoppy after taste to balance off the hazelnut/chocolate flavor.a really good brew!

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2003 Deep red/brown.Pretty nice head and lace. Nice dessert-like aroma of chocolate and sweet hazelnut . Palate is full of sweet and roasted nuts mingling with a smooth malt profile. Body is a little thin but the finish is rich,smooth hazelnut with a quick shot of hops at the end creating a little bit of dryness. Nice beer. Didnt think it was too sweet either. Kicks Newcastle's(had it earlier at dinner) ass like Rocky beating on Clubber.

A great beer. Very nutty tasting. The hazelnuts stand out.
