Beer 367/365 – Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar

Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar

Style: American Brown Ale

ABV: 6.2%

Purchased at: Giant Eagle Market District – Robinson, PA

What makes this beer different: Tons of nutty flavor.

Will I be drinking this again: Maybe! Very unique.

Grade: B+

11/29/2010: I’ve seen this beer on the shelves for years, but never got around to trying it. To be honest Rogue overall seems to be a bit overrated to me, although I will say their regular chocolate stout is a pretty damn good beer. Other than that I won’t go out of my way for much of their beer.

The nose is without a doubt very nutty, possibly the nuttiest of any brown ale I have ever smelled. Surprisingly the dominant flavor is a nice roasted malt, followed by a good nutty flavor. To be honest I would not have guess it to be hazelnut if I hadn’t known that was the secret ingredient. Also a bit of chocolate and tobacco like flavors in the mix. Hazelnut nectar actually ends up being a bit on the bitter end of the brown ale scale. Medium mouthfeel but a bit syrupy. Overall a pretty decent beer, a bit better than I expected.

Picture of the day: This kid is handicapable.

  3. Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    • Hi there. I would definitely recommend WordPress. Very straight forward and easy to use.
