Rogue's Hazelnut Brown Nectar
 
We had a few bomber's of Rogue's Hazelnut Brown Nectar at the NHBC awards banquet last night. Not too many folks at the table liked it but I fell in love. This is one of the best beers I've ever had.
I'll be looking for it at the store and definitely trying to clone this one!

I'm one of those that wasn't as impressed by it as I hoped I would be...It was the first Rogue that I've had that I was disappointed in.

That's a friend of mine's recipe, Chris Studach. He's also the one pictured on the bottle. In fact, we hung out a couple weeks ago at the Sasquatch Brewfest in Eugene with John Maier.

I made a clone of this and it came out really well:

I added 2 oz. of hazelnut extract at bottling. I think it's the BYO clone recipe I used.

Obviously the folks at "Draft on Tap" magazine (May/June edition) feel the same way u do about that beer.

They gave it a pretty high Taste Review. A 92 out of a possible 100. :mug:

Hey, do you think I could pick his brain for a few hints on brewing a clone?

brewt00l 06-23-2008 02:58 AM

I haven't had that one for years but I remember really enjoying the hazelnutty flavor. I've thought about making the clone recipe in the 150 clones for some time now.

Brewtopia 06-23-2008 03:11 AM

You bet. I'll give him a call this week.

BrewWench 06-23-2008 03:57 AM

I love it! One of my faves, actually.
