This dark, smooth, hazelnut stout is one of our favorites! Brewed with hazelnut-flavored coffee.

On tap at brewpub, Black Party 2008: Pour jet black with a fading frothy tan head and okay lace upon the glass, some oily legs as well. The aroma has notes of hazelnut, orange zest, chocolate, vanilla, espresso, charred malt, oatmeal, and some herbal hop. A very welcoming and relaxing nose indeed!

The taste is a wonderful mix of sweet hazelnut and malt balanced by some coffee and hop bitterness. The finish does display some herbal notes and even a hint of smoke but what you get initially from this beer is what stays till the end. The mouth feel is very smooth and very drinkable, I almost finished the pint before writing my notes. This is not for everyone but if you can dig a nutty stout then you must try this... I did twice!

On nitro @ Founderís. If you only sort of like hazelnut, you probably will not appreciate this beer. Very fragrant nose of roasted hazelnut and faint coffee and maybe a hint of vanilla. Tastes much like it smells, without tasting artificial. I really enjoyed it, but then again, I really like hazelnuts.

On nitro draft at Founders. Pours a dark brown, near black on the pour. Very nice, inch big, cascading head. Smell is all hazelnut espresso and I love it. Thereís even more in the taste. If youíre not into hazelnut, this maybe tough for you, but Iím totally digging it. Very smooth and creamy from the nitro tap. Perfect cold night beer.

Thats what that smell is! Just had on tap of this, and couldnít put my finger on that smell. Nice creamy head. Very interesting idea for a stout. I thought it almost tasted like a cappuccino-ish stout. Great idea, just not a big fan of the flavors used.

Pretty much your hazelnut bomb. Aroma of hazelnut and kettle corn overpower everything.There is nothing more to say about this brew,if your into the aroma and taste of hazelnut,this is your brew.Everyone at our table loved it,although we wondered if we would really want a pint of it,but you know what,it was big ballsy,and I give Founders all the credit for doing it this big

draught, immediate aroma of hazlenut. Thatís it. Hazlenut and oatmeal stout, light chocolate. Very tasty, if you absolutely love hazlenut. Slight roasted hazlenut coffee flavor. Buttery, but smooth and creamy. The hazlenut is FAR too overpowering, thatís its only flaw. I enjoy this much better mixed. Try it with the Redís Rye sometime, itís FANTASTIC

From growler...imagine it wouldve been nice and creamy on nitro, still was out of the growler but had more potential, huge aroma of malt vanilla and coffee, flavor of roast, chocolate malt, nut flavors. Would love to try on Nitro.

Draft at Founders. Dark brown pour with an average creamy off-white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Soild toasted malt and hazelnut aroma. Medium body with a creamy texture. Solid sweet toasted malt and hazelnut flavor with a moderate finish.
