4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the Hideout. It’s generally available on both CO2 and Nitrous. I’ve had it both ways; both are great, but I usually prefer it on CO2 as the harsher carbonation plays well against the sweetness of the hazelnut flavor - which is very noticeable in this beer. I can’t seem to come in here without succumbing to at least one pint, and find it to be remarkably consistent. They really do this one well.

On tap at the brewpub. The option was nitro or CO2 and this was CO2. Black with some red. Little head. Such a nice aroma! Cappucchino with hazelnuts. The flavor doesn’t jump out likebthe aroma, but how could it?! Very nice it is much
Ike the nose, though and is tasty as can be. Very good!

On tap at The Hideout Brewpub. Dark brown with ruby low-lights and a medium tan head. Aroma of hazelnut, coffee and dark malts. Taste of hazelnut, coffee, roasted malt and mild chocolate. Semi bitter on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap at the brewpub last summer - Pours black with a light tan head. It smells of roast malt and hazelnuts. The flavor is really nutty with the roast malt and a hint of chocolate secondary. It’s medium bodied and some roast coffee lingers on the palate.
