Not an ale, or even a beer, but "nectar", eh? Only Rogue has the moxie to pull that off, and pull it off, they do! Color is a perfect brown, reddish at the sides. Solid, thick, bubbly tannish head. Aroma is swimming in nuts, completely nutty, call the boys in white coats with the butterfly nets..this ale is totally nuts!! A touch of cocoa in the nose, also, but the hazelnut is king of the castle here. On the palate: buzzing with hops, lush, full maltiness, medium to full body. This one rare brown ale that is brimming over with character! Persistently smooth and satisfying, with a late fruitiness that shows up in the finish. Another winner from the reliable Rogue stable!

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2004
Pours a dark brown with no head. Lots of hazelnut on the nose. Smells like something I'd get at Starbucks, but better! Mildly sweet and hoppy as well. Creamy mouthfeel. Caramel, coffee, and hazelnut on the tongue. Nice dry hop finish, with a aftertaste of coffee and hazelnut. This is an awesome beer! I tend to not like brown ales but this one is amazing!

jollyraider (252) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 3, 2004
Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of hops, flavor is lots of malts and of course, sweet hazelnut. Too sweet for me to drink more than the bomber, and not my thing, but a really solid beer.

DocLock (9876) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2004
I was very impressed with this one. It pours deep brown, with a subdued head. The first sip provided a blast of hazenut flavor, with a good sweetness. Hints of caramel, toffee, almonds, and brown sugar presented themselves. The finish was smooth and malty, with a nice hop kicker. A wonderful brown ale.

Not being a big fan of hazelnuts, I can still appreciate the quality of this beer. Rich malty presence with hazelnuts at the finish.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2004 While not the very best beer from this brewer, it ranks up there pretty highly. Smooth, very smooth, with a silky quality to it that is unrivaled among the population of brown ales. I really enjoy this one.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2011 This is a great beer. A favorite for both my wife and me and the Rogue beer we go for the most. +++ Sampled from a22 oz brown bottle this beer pours a very dark brown color with a small tan head. There is a sweet hazelnut and coffee aroma. The texture is smooth and creamy. The flavor is very nutty, moderately roasty and slightly bitter on the lingering aftertaste. Wonderful.
