Pours deep amber with a fair-sized but short-lived head. Nice hazelnut aroma but otherwise pretty generic.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours an almost clear dark amber with a half finger of off-white head. Aroma of toffee and caramel with something a little Roasty. Tast is light bitter. Caramel and toffee with a hint of hazelnut in the finish. Not bad actually, I was pleasantly surprised.

Acquired in a 3 mixed bomber pack with a glass. Copper amber in color. Really nice clean toasted hazelnut aroma. More toasted hazelnut notes in the aroma. Overall, I wasn’t sure what to expect with this but I’m pleasantly surprised and delighted. This would probably pair well with some dark chocolate.

Poured this into the supplied glass. Pours a nice amber color, clear, head dissipates quickly. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin, crisp, watery. Which doesn’t help the overall enjoyment. Flavor is nutty, some oak. Some alcohol flavor comes through, astringent on the end of it, really turns me off on this.

From a bottle into a chilled Pint glass, shared with 2 brothers and a friend. Not enough hazelnut or dark for the name. Thin in the mouth. More flavor as it warms, quite decent toward the end.

surprised since i got this at a walgreens over xmas, but honestly its pretty decent. a mildly hoppy amber with a good dose of hazelnut flavor, a bit of toffee/butterscotch/caramel and oats. quite surprising.

This is part of the Gnarly Oak gift pack I bought at Walgreens over the holidays, $12.99 for three 22 ounce bombers and a glass. Beer #2 for me is Hazelnut Dark. Served in the Gnarly Oak glass, the beer pours a clear amber color with an inch light tan head. Head retention is good, and there’s a little bit of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells mostly like hazelnuts, along with some caramel and bready malt. Taste pretty much follows the aroma, the strongest flavor is hazelnut, and there’s also some caramel, bready malt, and some light hops. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit creamy and is well carbonated. I thought this was a solid brew, but then I do like hazelnuts so I might be a bit biased. I’d like to try this one again in the future.
