Fantastic beer. Brillant aroma accompanied by beautiful color and wonderful taste. Really appreciated how well the sweet yet measured hoppiness produced a wonderful flavor. Neither overly sweet nor overly hoppy. Have been very impressed with Rouge beers so far.

Not the typically Rogue-ish hop fest you might expect. Incredibly decadent dark roasted chocolate, dry hazelnut, sweet toffeeish caramel. Even gained a slight port like character with food. May have lacked a little bitterness in the finish but did a great job without it. I have to say I loved this one.

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

Nice and smooth, but not too smooth.

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.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 21, 2001
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!
