Hazelnut Brown Nectar
Rogue Ales
Style: American Brown Ale
ABV: 6.20 %

LOOK: Deep brown in color, excellent clarity. Soapy white foam forms leaving some lace behind.

SMELL: Vanilla, brown sugar, hazelnut coffee, espresso.

TASTE: Malt sweetness, brown sugar, molasses, and vanilla upfront. In the aftertaste there is a nutty vanilla note that can be attributed to the hazelnuts used in brewing. There is little bitterness or alcohol flavor.

FEEL: Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation. Vanilla and hazelnut flavors linger on the palette.

OVERALL: As solid as a brown ale that you can find. A bit sweet, but also very tasty. Would pair nicely with most desserts.

A nice dark brown color withy a big thick light tan head that lasts quite a while. Aroma is slightly sweet,nutty,malty,some maple or maybe brown sugar. Flavor is a nice nutty malt type roast,some toffee,chocolate,hints of grass and vanilla,sweet but not too much,you can even taste that "free range coastal water" just right,nicly balanced a very good brown,quite drinkable.

Pours a dark chestnut brown, with a thick off-white head with a decent amount of staying power. Good lacing.

The hazelnut smell is certainly present, as is chocolate. Coffee too. Smells like baking! Very sweet. Quite nice.

The roasted hazelnut is present in the taste as well, as well as a slight bitterness. Taste is nice, but not particularly complex. Perhaps a bit of caramel. Good, but not as exciting as the nose, for me.

Body is the weakest part of the beer. Thinner than I would like, and I do think that this detracts from the flavour. In its scent, it actually bears some similarities to a stout, and I think that a similar thickness would be quite welcome. Too watery. Minimal carbonation.

Overall, a good beer. Would be greatly improved with a bigger body. Still, definitely a nice one.
