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.

Root beer in color, foamy head that fizzles out after a minute or so.

One word: tasty.

You won't regret.

Poured hard into a pilsner glass. Nice thick cocoa colored head. Hazy reddish brown color, some lacing of the glass but quickly dissipated.
Smell: earthy, roasted hazelnut and malt.
Taste: very distinct malts with the hazelnut coming subtly through. Nice.
Feel is medium.
Overall a great American Brown Ale, distinguished by the hazelnut and mixed malts.

Pours a dark brown and light red when put to light. Strong hazelnut notes off the nose, with a strong but not in your face smell. Natural tasting hazelnut off first sip, with complex layered flavoring throughout. Easy to drink and tasty!
