Pours Ceylon tea color, nice head and lace, aroma subdued, palate is medium-bodied and medium-malt density, finish just okay - certainly drinkable, but unremarkable. By the way, didn’t pick up the hazelnut at all.

Bottle. Pours a clear darker brown color with very little head on it. Nose is quite malt forward, being dominated by some caramel tones, but a little toasting and just a slight bit of nuttiness on the back end. Taste is a little sweet, but has some nice toasting to it. Very drinkable beer.
