I'll go ahead and say that first and foremost, I am a huge fan of Rogue Ales. Myself, and the bar I am employed at are members of Rogue Nation; not to mention I have Dead Guy tattooed on my leg.

That aside I have had the hazelnut brown nectar both in a bottle and on tap.

A- The ale pours out a deep transparent brown with a yellow cream head.

S- anyone without a cold can place their sniffer up to the bottle or the glass and get the pleasant aroma of hazelnut from this well crafted brew.

T- Easy drinking brown ale. This can be a one and done or an all night feast. Light in taste with a pleasing zing of hazelnut on the back end and smooth roast all the way through.

M- coats but doesn't linger on the pallet and is an easy transition either way.

Overall- This brew gets a majority of my recommendations for the in between drinkers.

A- pours clear brown with a fuzzy white head that quickly reduces to a small ring around the glass, no lace

S- sweet and nutty, almonds, hazelnuts. Caramel malt, like the hazelnut syrup used in coffee

T- nutty hazelnut dominates, very sweet with some toffee and caramel malt, just a touch of coffee on the end.

M- medium body and carbonation, fizzy mouthfeel, slightly slick finish

O- a slow sipper due to the sweetness, would make a good dessert beer but definitely couldn't do more than 12ounces. Solid hazelnut brown ale overall.
