3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, big thanks to the callipalegic. Dark fruit, interesting ashy spicy note. Berry, and hints of coffee. Alex tasted it, she says the flavor reminds her of chocolate covered strawberries. Definitely lots of strawberry in the aftertaste, and some herbal quality which may or may not be from the vape in between sips. Earthy hops, and some chocolate. The cocoa aspect is very nice. Hazy brown red color, with a thin off-white head. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lightly crisp carbonation. Hazelnut is not so noticeable for me up front, but becomes much more noticeable in the aftertaste and the finish. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Decent hazelnut brown ale. Better than expected. Really appreciate it more towards the end, as it sits and warms up, and as the carbonation settles. Not bad at all, better than expected. In my opinion, a little bit better than Rogue Hazelnut (less sweet, bit more dry).

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Must be an old bottle, hope it aged well, heheh. Smells almost like a barley wine. First taste is as expected, quite winter spice like. I don’t miss these beers and I don’t think its a brown ale, only in looks. Yes this must have some kindah winter spice in there. Stronger intense spice begins to build. Wew, way to impressive to be a simple brown. Begins to get mouth coating. Long higher alky medicinal finish. Seems like more than 7% to me, but hey, I’m just a neophyte. Worst brown ale I’ve had in a while says my girlie lager taste buds.

Bottle sample from distributor at Dilly Deli (from notes). Poured a clear dark ruby brown color with a medium sized off white head that was mostly lasting. The aroma and flavor have some nutty character, caramel, toffee, earthy hops, dry with a body that is a touch thin. Worth trying once.

Pour on tap at Black Bottle, dark brownish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, nuts, hints of earth, slight grainy notes into a bit of grass, slight fruity notes as well. Taste is a mix of earth, fruit, nuts, into some caramel, toffee in there, finishing dry, slightly sweet.
