Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar

Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar

Ratebeer 3.76 96th percentile
Beer Advocate A

Taste +3

The nose is a malt heavy nectar, with additions of roast and (yes) hazelnuts. Upfront the brew give a roasted malt sweetness, followed very close-after with a sudden hop bitterness. The hops are a bit flowery and spicy. Again there is a prevailing flavour of roast, cashews and hazelnut at all points of tasting. The nutty bits gives a very smooth mouth feel to this beer. As it warms up, the flavours get better. For those who follow the numbers, it has 33 IBU.

Aftertaste +1

The smooth nut finish lasts as long as an in-law visit.

Alcohol Content +1 6.22%

You could never tell.

Value +1

This is a great beer; something flavourful and unique.

Ingame Enhancement +1

Maybe a little L4D tonight, but it does not matter. I started my first batch of home-brew today.
Overall 7/10

For something completely different, give this one a try.

Can't Belive I found this at a publix in Orlando, home of bud light (yuck) I used to live 30 min from the brewery and went there all the time for their "garage" sales and buy all there miss-labeled beer. I missed this stuff SO much

My son introduced me to this over the weekend and it's my new favorite. I love how smooth and totally UNbitter it is. Yum.
