bhensonb (13982) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle from a sixer from a discount grocery. Pours a dark copper with a beige head. Aroma seems a bit malty. Near medium body with somewhat foamy/fizzy carbonation. Flavor is more mild treacle than anything, but there is enough hop of some sort to keep the sweet a bit under control. Maybe there actually is a touch of hazelnut. Hard to be sure.

12 ounce bottle from Harris Teeter Crozet. Pours a clear brown color with a frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of nutty notes , brown malts and a faint herbalness. The taste is caramel malts and mild nutty and herbal notes. Medium bodied. Solid beer.

drowland (7876) - Georgia, USA - NOV 26, 2012
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.

PorterPounder (7228) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, sticky off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma has some brief nutty notes, some hard candy sweetness. Flavor has a hint of caramel, a touch of nuttiness, some back end metallic notes. Mouthfeel is a tad thin and tinny. Does in a pinch.

This is surprisingly good. Has a definite hazelnut flavor but it isnít too strong. The best of these barrel trolley beers.

Aurelius (5032) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Muted, tannic aroma. The foam smells doggy. Deep, clear ruby brown, big fluffy bone-colored head, standard US longneck, OK throwback label. Sweetish, clear gel and roast flavor. Unremarkable, but pretty clean drinking. Some tar and cherry in the finish. Medium body, slippery mouthfeel. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

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.
