Let me preface this by saying that nut ales, particularly the darker variety, are not my forte. However, with fall here and winter on its way it was time find out what all the fuss is about. So I picked up a decent sized bottle of Rogue's Hazelnut Brown Nectar from the LCBO, waited for a nice cool fall day and sat outside on my deck under a patio heater - determined to find out why people love this stuff.

Wow does this beer ever look good. A deep and rich mahogany color - just beautiful! The head is an offwhite light brown made up of small bubbles.. but it fades quickly to a small blanket at the top of the drink. Smell-wise, there isn't as much there as I thought there might be.. however there is some nuttiness and roasted malts. The taste is a pleasant suprise though.. lots of rich and sweet roasted malt, nuttiness.. perhaps even a little bit of a coffee taste towards the end. It feels right on the tongue as well. Not watery.. not thick, but a well draped and lightly carbonated liquid. I have read reviews on other sites complaining that the drink is too sweet and I disagree. It's lightly sweet in the beginning but transitions well to a solidly complex and hoppy finish.

I think I could grow to like this. Not an every day beer but certainly fitting now that the cooler weather arrived. If you haven't tried Rogue yet - keep an eye out as this one won't let you down. I guarantee towards the end of your drink you'll be thinking only two words: yum, yum.
