Appearance: A deep ruby red with a fairly loose, small, creamy tan head . The head has no staying power, and leaves no lace. About average for a brown ale.

Smell: At first, it's mostly malt, but as it warms and the volatiles evaporate, you get a strong hazelnut nose.

Taste: Good roasted malts and hazelnut flavors and a toasty nuttiness. Has a mild hop bitterness at the back ofthe tounge. Very well balanced. I think I'm getting some caramel overtones to, but it's so subtle, it's hard to be sure. If you don't like my lackof certainty, go get your own damn beer and review it. ;)

Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel, average carbonation for a brown ale with just a bitof a bite at the end..

Drinkability: Tasty. Has a nice complexity but is still easy drinking.

Note: The quality control on this beer (Much like the Roque Red) leaves something to desired. Try it. If you don't like it, wait a few weeks and then get another bottle from a different store.

A: into a tulip, deep brown beer body, dark orange/red highlights center-pour produced a thick finger of tan head - persisted nicely, left sparse lace arms

S: deep, earthy malt and hop smell accented by dry hazelnut aromas; soft, earthy aromas suggesting molasses' sweetness and herbal tart/bitter-ness

T: not too bitter, faint chewy dark sweetness; suggests a wet, brown, pastry; dusky hazelnut presence; a yeast presence that is reminscent of some dark Belgian ales; flavors clear nicely on the finish, drying the mouth just enough before the next sip. Sweetened as it warmed.

M: somewhat tacky, soft and almost fuzzy; smooth, faint coat, light tingle that grew softer as the beer warmed

O: a very nice brown ale - the hazelnut isn't overpowering, cloying, or sweet - it fits well with the style and is a seamless blend. I'm not a big brown ale person, and the feels and tastes of the style are not my typical preference. That said, this was a very enjoyable beer that appealed in all areas. A fan of the style would no doubt enjoy this beer tremendously.

this is apparently the hazlenut nectar repackaged, and yeah, it's got the same ingredients, ibu, aa, etc, but my bottle still tasted a bit different. there's still the nice deep amber/ruby colour, but the smell and the taste are more chocolate than nutty this time. seems to have a slightly fuller body as well, yet it was still smooth as hell. not much more to say. i'd still give it a try if you've already had and enjoyed the hazlenut, as you clearly won't be disappointed.

An interesting concoction from Rogue. Smells malty malty malty and nutty. Toasty- almost marshmallow-like in the nose.

Taste is also very malty, more toastyness, with a bare hint of chocolate. Sweet, but not overly so. Hazlenutty, obviously, but I also got a vanilla extract thing going on in there. Pretty easy to drink, though I'm not sure I could have more than one of these. Interesting, a nice dessert type beer.
