On tap at the brewery Pours dark brown almost black with a tan creamy head. The aroma leads in the flavor which is full of rich hazlenut coffee but it becomes cheap as it warms up. From a nice cafe thatís interesting and inviting to coffee at the truck stop in the middle of the night with hazlenut creamer stirred in.

Tmoney99 (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Draft sample at MBG Winterfest 2009. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate roasted coffee, chocolate and nutty aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a solid drinkable beer.

WakeandBake (549) - Greenville, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Draft at Brew HaHa . A dark brown to black color with a medium fluffy tan head.Aroma of hazelnut coffee and vanilla . Flavor of sweet dark roasted hazelnut coffee and some dark chocolate.Just enough carbonation for a smooth creamy mouthfeel, a hint at bitterness on the finish. A solid offering,and I would love a growler of this stuff.

Nitro at the brewpub. Black with brown head. String coffee aroma with a hint of chocolate. Flavor contains obvious hazelnut with quality malt sweetness and enough bitterness to suffice. Drinkable and very enjoyable.

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckiní hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Draft @ brewpub: This is definitely the standout here. Aroma is very fragrant of hazlenut, almost overpoweringly so. Flavor is roasted coffee and hazelnuts. Sweet, fragrant finish. Minimal to non-existent hop profile.

milewide (1473) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 25, 2007
On tap. Hazelhut flavoring is main aroma and flavor. Owner, Laura, gave me sample of both nitro and CO2. Nitro was much more creamy with small bubbles in head. CO2 had big bubble head---but much more flavor as Laura promised. I liked CO2 better!

Pailhead (4633) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2007
On tap: the aroma consists of sweet chocolate, hazelnut coffee, and vanilla. Itís a dark brown with no transparency and a soapy off-white head. The flavor starts with light chocolate,caramel, and hazelnut. The finish has lots of roasted coffee.

aarossell (151) - Grandville, Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Very nice, rich stout. Immediate taste of hazelnut. Faint aroma, rich dark brown color. Buttery, coffee, nutty, and overwhelming hazelnut. Much like the crusaders weizen, too much flavoring. Good, though, in small doses.

mds (2200) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2006
Draught. Dark brown body with a small head. Rich hazelnut, vanilla, and creamy bread in the aroma. Interesting flavour with a creamy nuttiness, chocolate, and toasted malt. Quite nice and tasty.
