TheEpeeist (3175) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2010
22 oz bottle. Clear tawny brown with a resilient beige head. Nose is toffee, hazelnut and wet wood; oddly muted for the bold components. Flabby medium body, kind of watery. Taste is brown sugar, burnt nuts, rum and lime. The barrel has sapped much of what i liked in the base brew. Sadly disappointing.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Sampled on draft this beer poured a very dark brown color with a small beige head that produced some lacing. The aroma was sweetish, woody and malty with touches of toast, nut and smoke. The flavor was dry, malty and a bit roasty with touches of bourbon, nut and cocoa. The finish was long, dry, smoky and woody. Fairly full bodied. Ok.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2010
draft. clear bronze with a creamy tan head. toffee and honey-drizzled hazelnut nose - sweetness medium to high. rum character is low, oak character is low (seems to be a theme with these JJ releases). nutty malt is mostly sweet and chewy. medium body. thin finish. not the biggest fan of the hazelnut, and this version honestly doesn’t seem that different from the untouched hazelnut nectar.

mcberko (5357) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2010
Sampled on tap at the Alibi Room, pours a light brown. Aroma of subtle nuts, roasted malts and hazelnuts. Flavour is somewhat muted with nuts, wood, roasted malts and various nuts - not close to the Hazelnut Brown Nectar.

TheBeerGod (5045) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown with a short tan head. Aroma is sweet malt, candied nuts, spicy notes, and chocolate. Taste is sweet malt, strong nuttiness, chocolate covered nuts, spicy notes and cocoa. Body is medium with a very soft carbonation. Almost slick, at times. Ends with more spicy notes, strong nutty flavors, sweet malt, light chocolate and cocoa. Tasty!

Clark reddish brown with a fizzy head. Rum and hazel nut aroma and taste with spiced rum finish. Good hazel nut and cinnamon notes throughout.

BMan1113VR (7787) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Bottle. Pours with an exceptionally light brown body and a small, tan head. Aroma of earth, hazelnuts, chocolate, assorted nuts, nutella, nougat. Taste is nutty, earthy, lightly meaty, chocolate, nutella. Almost no rum or barrel character as far as I can tell. Light bubbles and dry. Some decadence from the hazelnuts, but not super interesting.

demitriustown (1033) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - AUG 19, 2010
Bomber: Aroma is roasted hazelnut, chocolate, malt, caramel. Hops are really subdued almost not noticable at all. Appearance is a slightly cloudy light brown with a thin off white head that lingers. Taste has got a wonderful nutty, malty, and slight rum taste to it. This stuff is really drinkable and nicely flavorful. Palate is medium carbonation, mouthfeel somewhat doughy, and a nice nutty rum aftertaste. Overall, I’m surprised. Usually Rogue beers are a let fown for me. This one is really nice. Cheers!

Bouteille de 22 oz partagée lors d’une dégustation Ratebeer Montréal chez moi. Arôme: Légère odeur d’épices et de noix. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’épices avec une pointe de noix et de céréales. Courte durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de caramel en arrière goût. (Rating #2942)
