Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar
Ratebeer 3.76 96th percentile
Beer Advocate A
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.
The smooth nut finish lasts as long as an in-law visit.

Maybe a little L4D tonight, but it does not matter. I started my first batch of home-brew today.
For something completely different, give this one a try.
