4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft… This beer rocks!… Clear, dark, burnt-orange ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. The bouquet provides huge, wonderful hazelnut and espresso components to go along with nuances of chocolate, fudge and toasted nuts discovered in the base beer. Medium to full-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is loaded with hazelnut wonderfulness intermingling with less significant, but satisfying notations of chocolate, espresso and caramel. Balanced fairly nicely, although it does subtly tip its hat toward the sweet side. Finishes nutty, and then leaves tannin-nutshell and maple aftertastes in my mouth. Excellent, world class beer!

On draft at 7venth Sun. Pours a medium brown with an off-white head. Nose is some nuts, some toasted malts, and a nutella/ chocolate presence. Flavor is similar with big nutella blending into the chocolate and nuts along with some mild yeast. Light to medium in body and very nice overall.

Pours a dark brown with a thin white head. Aroma is bombarded with hazelnut, smells like a morning cup of coffee, taste follows. This is such a nice treatment, I can't drink a ton of this but it's very tasty in smaller glasses.

Tap at 7venth Sun. Muddy mahogany pour. Weak retention and lace. Nose is absolutely insane marzipan, amaretto, toasted almonds, hazelnut chocolate. Insane. Taste is wildly thick hazelnut chocolate cake, amaretto coffee, marzipan, Irish cream. Rich as hell. Absolutely mind blowing.

On draft at 7venth Sun, poured a cloudy brown color, aromas of nuts, vanilla, creamer, and a touch of chocolate. Flavor is the same as the aromas, a real nice beer overall, would love to have this beer while tail gaiting.

Pours hazy brown. Nose is GIANT hazelnut. Like smelling a flavored coffee creamer. Flavor is nutty, oily, malty, yeasty. Thought the flavor would be overwhelming, but it melds nicely with the base beer.
