drowland (5981) - Valdosta, 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 hadn’t looked at the label until now, but I suppose that’s the hazelnut. Eh.

PorterPounder (5371) - 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 isn’t too strong. The best of these barrel trolley beers.

nick76 (4180) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2012
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.

Aurelius (4062) - 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.

12 ounce bottle pours a copper amber color with aromas of nuts, light earth, and some toffee. Flavors are livht caramel, malt, nuts, and some earth. Decent brown ale.

maxwelldeux (3502) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 24, 2013
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.

alexanderj (3299) - Branson, Missouri, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Bottle; poured a darkish cola type brown. Medium sized head with an off white head. ARoma of caramel and vegetables; Flavor was better, as the aroma was not up to par. Flavor had some decent nut, caramel combination. Not anything to write home about, but its probably better than their other beers.
