Pours browny amber with good head and great lacing.

Smell has sweet brown ale malt, lots of hazelnut flavour. Pretty nice and unsurprisingly the nutty brown ale notes integrate well with nutty notes of, well...hazelnut.

Taste carries through. Not quite as potent but similarly well poised balanced between the two types of nut flavour. A slight spearmint/menthol note on the swallow.

Mouthfeel is decent - the gaps in flavour in the previous Rogue beer I had are readily filled with hazelnut flavour in this one.

Great beer. Better executed than Frangelic Mountain Brown (which I also enjoyed).

Very well integrated hazelnut flavour, somehow it doesn't seem artificial or syrupy at all. Nice and fairly dry beer actually. No artifical sweetness.

I do find it funny how really the only enjoyable brown ales are ones with adjuncts. Perhaps brewers will catch on someday.

Anyhow, great beer and deservedly regarded as a classic.

A slightly reddish-tinged brown in color. An off-white three-finger, rocky head shows good retention and leaves some scattered streaks of lacing. Hazelnut is prominent on the nose. Slightly sweet, buttery, and nutty aroma. Slight floral hop note.

Nice interplay of hazelnut, caramel malt, and bitterness. The hazelnut flavor is out front without being overly dominant. The bitterness could be toned down a bit as it slightly overshadows the malt body. Mouthfeel is quite nice with a soft, sudsy carbonation.

Hazelnut Brown Nectar nicely melds hazelnut and brown ale flavors. It's a bit pricey for a bomber, but once you crack it open, it's hard to stop drinking until the bottle's empty.
