[Tap] Pours a light brown color without any head. Aroma of hazelnut, vanilla and cocoa. Caramel malts backbone in the taste. Nutty notes, along with brown sugar, molasses, cherry, plums and soft hoppy finish. Rich palate and fine carbonation. Exceptionally balanced, with a creamy mouthfeel. This beer is a nice change of pace.

750 mL bottle. Cloudy brown pour with no head. Aroma of caramel malt and herbs. Flat taste of lemongrass, caramel and yeast with a lingering finish. Had potential, think the bottle may have been spoiled with zero head.

elihapa (1532) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Bomber, beautiful packaging. Aroma is big, and lush: malt, sweet chestnut, baker’s chocolate, and nutella. Mouthfeel is medium in fullness, with good creaminess and a lightly dry finish. Flavor bursts forward with chocolate and chestnut, perfect harmony. There is a depth of malt flavor achieved here that I find particularly special. Great beer overall.

wedgie9 (2487) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Tasted on draft at the Purple Pig. Pours cloudy dark amber with a thick off-white head that recedes to lace. Nose of banana bread and malt with hazelnuts as an afterthought. Flavor is caramel malt with nice bitterness and a slightly sour note. The hazelnuts really come through strongly on the palate. The body is fairly full with average carbonation and a long finish that reminds me of Christmas.
