3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11/26/12. 12oz bottle. Brown pour, more of a clear red under the light, under a small khaki head that fades fast and laces a touch. Slightly tangy and metallic malty aroma with hints of bread, burnt caramel, and nuttiness. Sweet, malty flavor again with a hint of tang and metal and some breadiness and caramel with a lingering nutty aspect... I hadnít looked at the label until now, but I suppose thatís the hazelnut. Eh.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Harris Teeterís nut brown is better than expected, combining a nice earthy malt with a soft carbonation and nutty finish. A pretty pour, Barrel Trolley nut brown sports a fluffy off-white head and clear deep brown body. A bit of coppery metallic character shows in the otherwise pleasant finish, detracting from the overall appeal of the beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is malty and slightly toasted with caramel, nuts, and chocolate. The appearance is light brown with a large head. The taste is like the aroma but astringent. The palate is average. Overall the only nice thing about it is the hazelnut essence the rest is crap.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown w/ a tiny white head that leaves a little bit of lacing. The aroma is dominated by the hazelnut. The taste is nutty & smooth throughout. Itís nicely balanced & has a light creamy mouthfeel. A very solid beer thatís everything you would expect from a brown. Quite nice!
