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.
