A big Hazelnut Brown Ale with a warm, nutty, toffee-like flavor. A wonderful winter warmer to enjoy with friends during the holiday seasons. A wildly big strong ale we call the Big Shot.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2010
draft @ redlight redlight. Nutty toffee aroma with caramel and hazelnuts. Pours a reddish amber with a thin off white head. Nutty and caramel malts upfront with toffee and an earthy bitterness with hints of coffee and hops. Not bad.

Bomber from Binny’s Orland Park. Pours clear brown with tan head. Aromas of chocolate, toffee, and nutty malts. Flavor is nutty with toffee, light hops, and good dose of chocolate malt. Mouthfeel is a little thin. Decent brown

rader58 (852) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Pours a slightly cloudy medium brown color. Aroma of hazelnut and toffee with a hint of vanilla and leaves. Flavor is nutty with a slight bitterness and a somewhat dry finish. By the aroma I was expecting more, but the flavor has left me a bit disappointed.

jjuf1853 (1299) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Draft. Pours a dark brown/hazelnut color with a beige head. The aroma is quite musty with some bready malt and spice notes. The flavor is unimpresive at best with a waxy aftertaste that reminds me of Crayola crayons.

PorterPounder (6711) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 15, 2010
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 22 oz bomber. Iced tea looking pour with a sticky off-white head. Aroma has an earthy quality to it with some black dirt and a hint of nuttiness - but slightly stale. Flavor is kind of worn out, pick up some faint Christmas spices, some black dirt, a hint of chocolate and some nuttiness. Mouthfeel is slightly faded - methinks this is suffering from too long shelf life.

Cybercat (4432) - Georgia, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Pours a dark coppery amber with a decent, if not too thick, light beige head. Aroma is not strong but still appealing, mainly malty with hints of spice and miso. Flavor is malty and woody with a spicy undertone, OK if not spectacular. Texture is fairly smooth, fizzy and tingly.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Pours brown with a thin tan head. Light aroma of chocolate, nuts, toffee. Light chocolate in the flavor with a little bit of bitterness. Was hoping for something with a little more spices or flavor for a seasonal. Decent though.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2010
Slightly cloudy, brownish amber pour with a thin offwhite head. Aroma of milk chocolate. Flavor of Quick (coacoa powder to make chocolate milk) and caramel. This is one strange brown ale, it’s clean, but strange.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5965) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a red-brown color with a huge orange-tan head. The aroma was toasty cocoa with a fruity presence and a touch of licorice. The flavor was bitter and fruity with notes of cocoa, toast, anise and bourbon. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

sebletitje (8270) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 26, 2010
Draft at OTH. Pours amber, off-white head aroma, lots of roasted goodness, coffeish, malts, grainy, mild nuttiness. flavor, reminded me a lot of Ft Collins common ground coffee amber, a dry palate, plenty of roast/toast and mild coffee presence. Grainy palate, mild chocolate. Love the balance of mild hop bitterness quickly followed by a good caramel, nutty roasted finish. Overall profile is really favoring the toasted malt side. Tasty.
