Hazelnut Brown Nectar by Rogue Ales & Spirits was judged as a Spice, Herb or Vegetable Beer (BJCP Style Category 30A). This beer has enough hazelnut to make a statement but not enough to overwhelm. Big hazelnut aromas rise from the glass lightly scented with hints of chocolate and toast. It pours brilliant deep brown with ruby highlights under a ½” tan cap with fair retention that reduces to a thin ring of foam around the rim. The beer has well-developed hazelnut flavors balanced by traces of chocolate, malt, a hint of root beer and a medium-low hop bitterness. The carbonation is medium, and the creaminess is medium-low. The beer loses a couple of points for head retention, but it is a flavorful beer you can drink all night.
