3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Wow! What a nice beer to be finding at your local Jewel. Complex chocolate with other flavors (your dad's pipe smoke?), nuttiness is implied more than overt. Take this one home with you and it'll respect you in the morning.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with minimal head. Aroma of hazelnut, vanilla, roasted malt, and caramel. Medium light bodied. Creamy slick texture. Some cocoa in taste as well. Very nice. Smooth. Almost beats Roque hazelnut nectar.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle pours a dark, translucent, deep mahogany brown with some thin, slightly off white head. Nose is very bready, crust, brown sugar, some yeast, some toasted malt, some root veg, a little soil. Flavor is the same, malty, caramel, bread crust, some toast, a little burnt milk, some overcooked root veg. Clean finish.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep ruby hue with a foamy tan head. Aroma of caramel syrup and chocolate. Taste is sweet upfront with a roasted chocolate and caramel flavor that lingers dark and slightly smokey without too much bitterness. Very well balanced. Palate is neutral. Very drinkable.
