Tap at Brewhaven. Fresh roasted coffee and hazelnut aroma. Aroma alone, I could drink this stuff for breakfast. Amber with a small beige head. Roasty coffee malt, hazelnut, astringent, black pepper flavor with a roasty bitter finish. Light to medium body, light carbonation.

Bottle (thanks Brad) poured into a snifter: Well the aroma of hazelnut is impressive, and you sense your in for a treat. Very easy to drink brown ale with great flavor. Fun and enjoyable. Really enjoyed this and hope to have more.

Bottle. Great aroma; chocolate malts. Notes of cinnamon, brown sugar, coffee, vanilla, and hazelnut. Palate is surprisingly light. Flavor sweet finishing dry, damn impressive.

Tulip pour, deep brown, light, thin head. Aroma is intense. Fantastic! Coffee, super hazelnut, smooth and sweet, caramel. Flavor is slightly less, good hazelnut notes, smooth creamed coffee, nutty, caramel sweetness. Really nice. Palate is a decent medium with light lacing. Fantastic!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Binny’s South Loop. Pours a translucent deep brown with red. Thin offwhite head that fades. The nose is a big blast of cocoa and coffee, hazlenut and vanilla. Yep, frangelico. The beer is kind of lost overall. On tasting, it really hides the abv well. Seems missing the base beer again in taste. Somewhat thin on the palate. Reminiscent of irish coffee. Sweet to start but it does dry out. An interesting go but not really a great beer. Would probably work better with they porter, actually. Okay.

Not sure where RB gets off calling this a Strong Ale. It’s obviously a brown ale brewed with coffee and artificial hazelnut flavoring. There is no beer like quality to this. It tastes like the $2 Iced Hazelniut Coffee I purchase at Dunkin Donuts except it costs $15. Drain pour
