22oz bottle pours out dark brown almost black topped with a tan head. Nose is great sweet milk chocolate some nutty notes along with a nice roast malt kick. Taste is more of the sweet milk chocolate nutty notes must be the hazelnut and a great end.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle dated 05/04/2015.
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a thick dark brown color close to black. An off white one finger head dissipates into a messy sticky stringy lacing.
The smell started off with the chocolate, pretty thick and as it warmed, a gentle hazelnut makes its presence to assist in the balance.
The taste started sweet through the chocolate and once again as it warmed, light hazelnut broadens the taste. The aftertaste definitely had a long milk chocolate leading into a wet chocolate finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a slight sessionability about it. Its actually more of a sipper to be honest. Carbonation felt right as a porter and the chocolate and hazelnut helped to smooth things out nicely.
Overall, I’d say this was a pretty nice chocolate hazelnut porter, hits all the right spots. Would probably even be better on a chilly Autumn evening.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle- Pours black with a tan head that reduces leaving a blanket. Aroma is chocolate up front, more bitter/sweet, hazelnut follows, they co-mingle nicely, strong malt presence. The taste is very porteresque if that’s a word (pretty sure it actually isn’t), roasted malts, chocolate, the hazelnuts add a nice nutty depth to the beer. Dessert in a glass.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Awesome chocolate bouquet. Pours dark brown with caramel head that whilst thick, dissipates quickly. Choc hazelnut dominates the flavour. Whilst it says natural additives, it is a little bit too much. Still good. Pleasant nutty finish that lingers on and on and on.
