3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ the brewery. Pours very dark caramel brown with thin head. Aroma is big roasty nutty dark malt. Taste is thin dark roasted malt with a nutty dry caramel finish. Kinda meh, but this isnít my favorite style so thatís probably not fair.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark brown, almost going into black. Medium small beige head on top of it. Rich malty nose with dark chocolate upfront, bicuits and some vanilla with a bit of bourbon in the finish. Later on a fine hazelnut develops. Taste follows with pleasant chocolate sweetness. Silky body with hints of bitterness. Creamy maltiness. Full body but lightly drinkable. A hint of warmth in the end. A slightl sparkly feel in aftertaste. A delight

Bottle to glass - Color of root beer, thin wispy light beige head. Very rich aroma of roasted nuts, maple and coffee.... Notes of vanilla. Great smell. A tad underwhelming by comparison on the tongue. Some what standard brown. Caramel malts, roasted nuts. Earthy bitter finish. Par.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark Ruby brown with dissipating head. Delicious hazelnut aroma with a little vanilla and coffee bean. Nutty taste, sweet, lightly acidic. A little creamy but nothing like rogues.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is, like, the Fabrege Egg of nut browns or something. And not just some knockoff that looks sparkly and pretty from a distance but lacks craftsmanship once you get up close and start poking around its details. Complex and bittersweet and the dry finish leaves you ready for another sip immediately.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2016 Pours a nice mahogany with minimal, quick-disappeared tan head. Aroma is amazing, fully realizing the nut component with hazelnuts dominating a malty roast. Flavor is similar though thereís a weakness and slight acidity. Finish is somewhat dry.
EDIT: On second try with clean palate, the flavor matches my aroma description. Great stuff - maybe my new favorite of the style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good nut brown ale. Pours a little think with a hint of coffee and vanilla smell. The taste is clean and the beer is easy to drink! Not my favorite style but a well done variation.
