This beer is just so rich and nutty. I only have 1-2 bottles at a time as it's a special flavor that needs to be savored when your taste buds are ready for action. And there's coffee too. It's just an excellent beer. You could pop this one open at breakfast and drink with your pancakes. Seriously.

L : Pours a light chestnut color with hints of cola, and forms a tea-like body with 1 finger of rooty head.

S : Pure hazelnut bliss. A hint of coffee bean and cashew behind it, along with a jar of assorted grains and some musty brewery air.

T : Hazelnut comes first, but in a 2-D, non-sweet way; firm nuttiness and cashew follow, with a spread of roast malts and toffee. It ends as it starts, semi-sweet; not quite as musky and upfront as hazelnut, but more smooth and subdued like toffee.

F : Lots of soda-like carbonation, with a semi-dry, slightly chalky finish. I could have done with a smoother feel overall.

O : Hazelnut Brown Nectar may be the best Brown Ale on the planet. It's delicious, not too overly sweet, and does what it advertises. It's an enjoyment, much like a Heath bar. Try it, you'll like it.
