one of my all time favorite brews. Have been to Portland twice for vacation and visited the brewery many, many times. Was lucky enough to catch a "garage sale" there where they were selling kegs and boxes of the 22oz bottles of various rogue ales for great discounts! I picked up 3 cases of the 22oz hazelnut brown nectar while there and was set for beer outside of bars all vacation. This is the beer that got me in to craft beer and my love for brown and nutty ales.

Very nice smell of hazelnuts, but too much carbonization, what often bothers me with Rogue ales.

I've had this several times in mugs and pint glasses. Today's is in a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking dark brown color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Light trickling lacing stuck to the sides decently and slides after about a minute.
The smell had a cooked nutty caramel flavoring. Every time I've had it, I could never really tell if that was hazelnut specifically, but it has a definite nuttiness about it.
The taste was semi-roasty with a decent nutty and caramel flavoring running underneath. A light rolling nutty aftertaste starts and leads into the finish.
The mouthfeel was about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me as it wasn't too sharp but mainly standard.
Overall, I say this was a decent American Brown Ale. I might have this again.
