look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: On tap, served in a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Reddish brown, crystal clear. No head to speak of, just a ring of foam that fades to nothing.

Smell: Amazingly enough, very little smell at all, neutral.

Taste: Very creamy taste, almost milky. Nutty finish, no bitterness. A slight sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Low carbonation, as expected for a brown ale.

Drinkability: Yes, please, several more.

Very deep brown body with a perfect 2 inch tan head, rocky, with small and regular bubbles, fine lacing and lasting. Sweet nose, chocolate mainly with hints of maple and coffee. The taste is pretty malty, sweet, surprisingly very fresh with loads of nice flavors among which none really stood out, but honey, chocolate, milk, nuts, toffee, caramel, coffee, maple, rich cookies. Soft, creamy and chewy palate. Tremendous malt/hops balance, more on the malt size, but hops is noticeable, especially toward the finish where I noticed a woody/herbal hops flavor and a roastiness that added to the complexity. Great bursting vanilla aftertaste. Lovely beer which I'm frightened I won't be able to get a crack at near often enough living up here:( Two thumbs up to JoeT for this great desert.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

appearance - chestnut brown with a frothy white head

smell - I just can't pick up much here, a bit of cocoa and malt

taste - this is much better than the nose, hazelnut, cocoa, malt are all bold

mouthfeel - light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, good flavors on this as the taste lingers really well on this, slightly sweet, but not overpowering, pretty smooth finish

overall - for the price, not the best value (~$6 for 22oz), but a good beverage worth trying

This beer pours an auburn, dark red color. The head is tan and fades rather quickly. Like the name would suggest, it smells of hazelnuts. It also has a slightly malty smell. There are faint scents of cinnamon. It tastes very sweet. The hazelnut flavor is apparent. It has a lightly toasted maly flavor. There is also a slight chocolate taste to it. This beer is creamy and smooth. It is carbonated just right. This beer is medium bodied. It is a very good beer. As with the Morimoto Hazelnut Signature Ale, this beer might not make the best session beer due to the very sweet flavor. If you can find this beer, it is definately worth your time and money.

Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar has an amber brown colour and a 3 mm head that fades quickly. The smell is all hazelnuts: sweet and earthy. The taste is slightly sour with earthy maltiness. The finish is a little sour too. This beer has a decent foamy texture. Overall, a very nice and interesting brew.

Clear, bubbly brownish red appearance. Head fades quickly. More red than brown in the light.

A unique sugary sweet (but not at all cloying) brown aroma that is unlike any other brown I've ever had. It's like cake and bready brown sugar with that dry hazelnut adding richness. Just tremendous; it's a nutty, bready confection.

The taste is sweet, like real bready brown sugar. Grounded with sweet, bready yeast. Beautifully balanced between the sweet sugar and the nutty hazelnut. Hints of oatmeal and cocoa powder.

The feel is so dry and thick, like a light milkshake. Perfect consistency for this style. It's a great, sweet (but not saccharine) beer. Bready and confectionary. Wonderful and nutty.
