Again a classic from Rogue that I've been trying to taste for long: the Hazelnut Brown Nectar! Although the label has changed somewhat from the usual "guys in monotone" design, the taste I hope stayed tge same - but what I had convinced me pretty much. Once the beer warms up to the right temperature you instantly start getting mildly sweet/spicy hazelnut aromas and the taste is just overwhelming. Not only fragrant hazelnuts but you feel like drinking a beer with a hazelnut milk chocolate. Although the sweet chocolate thing is rather a flavor and not a syrupy sweetness, it is quite okay. The beer itself is rather dry and somewhat carbonated I would say - it is on the "nectar" side that suits the ale character pretty well and doesn't make it like a porter or a stout. The dryness has some stickiness to it in the aftertaste but otherwise I think it is a very well made, well drinkable beer. Cheers, Rogue!

A curious beer It has not motivated me much. It's a beer that stands out for hazelnuts but nothing more. For my soft mass. Yes, the treatment of hazelnuts is very well done. In fact, the person next to him liked it a lot.

A cheap version of Guinness. Less body and smell. Aftertaste is on par with other ales. Won't buy again.

Had 3 Hazelnut Brown Nectars at a reputable restaurant. The inconsistency in smell and taste was incredible between the three. The first beer was very sour, no hazelnut aroma or flavor. Had to throw it out. The second was a fantastic beer. All flavors and aromas as advertised! The third was just like the first...horrible from the start. All three were from the same six pack...WTH Rogue?!? You have issues!!

Hazy chocolate brown, half finger of craterous head
Candied pecans, hazelnut, chocolate, malts
Bright tart taste, odd. Roasted and malts
Feels dry
I don't know if this has gone bad or if I'm just bad at beer

Meh.... A little too much like candy beer for my tastes. Bought a six pack and it took me forever to finish it.
