Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar. My New Year's Beer Selection. Reviewed from notes.

(Appearance) Thick light tannish creamy head with average retention. Medium brown body color. Decent appearance. 3.5

(Smell) Musty hazelnut toffee aroma smells a little like wet dog. Hazelnut is a little artificial and dominates the nose. It doesn't allow for any balance and makes for a particuoarly unpleasant aroma. 2.5

(Taste) Cloying nutty flavor up front with a bitter roasted malt finish. A bit heavy on the hazelnut throughout and not in a pleasing way either. Not for everybody, even if you like hazelnut, this may not be an enjoyable beer. 2.75

(Mouthfeel) Creamy flavor with faint crispness throughout. Medium body for the style, medium body overall. Alcohol presence is light. 3.5

(Overall) I didn't fine the hazelnut to be a pleasing additive in this beer, and it really dominated the flavor and aroma throughout. Probably worth a try one but it is likely to offend more than the few it may please. 2.75

Drank on-tap at The Gaff, Waltham, MA
Served in a stemmed glass

The beer poured a near crystal clear mahogany color and was topped by a frothy, bubbly, one-plus finger tall crop of khaki colored foam. The head slowly dropped, leaving behind spotty drips of lacing.

The aroma was mild initially. Dry and powdery. Later, toasted malts came out. As the beer warmed, the nose really opened open. Sweet hazelnut notes were apparent. Lots of freshly brewed coffee as well. The coffee smell reminded me a lot of Dunkin' Donuts.

The same notes that appeared later in the aroma also dominated the flavor profile. Lots of sweet caramel and toasted malts on the front end. Hazelnut notes then took over. Good amount of sweetned and creamed coffee as well. Touch of cocoa. A hint of dry roastiness appeared on the finish.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied. Smooth, slick and creamy with a fine and moderate carbonation.

Rogue's Hazelnut Nectar Ale is immensely flavorful and highly drinkable. I forgot how good this beer is.
