This is certainly a top notch porter. Very rich and full bodied. The hazelnut is appropriately balanced but prominent. From BevMo.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours jet black with a tan head that dissipates quickly. Nose is full of hazelnuts with chocolate and caramel notes. Taste is very hazelnut forward, back end following through with some mild caramel and toasted malts to finish. Quite high in carbonation for the style and a thin mouthfeel. Nice but not my cup of tea.

Pours a very dark brown with a short, nougat colored head. Dark roasted coffee and roasted nuts. A bit watery on the palate. Very dark roasted malt is most prominent in the first few sips. Hazelnut becomes more abundant after that. Some instant cocoa mix flavor. Quite a bit of coffee.

Bottle shared at the return of Old Spice tasting. Small sample. The aroma has hazul nuts, milk chocolate. Black coloured beer with a thin, off-white head. The taste has chocolate and hazel nuts. Very smooth mouthfeel, low on carbonation. Very nicely done. Good idea, but not my thing.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with nice beige head. Aroma of caramel, hazelnuts, coffee. In taste medium sweet, nutty with roasty and medium bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation, smooth. Quite ok except the fact that hazelnut tastes a bit artificial.
