Tmoney99 (12064) - 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.

A wierd one. It is stout-like but a bit thin, rather than hazelnut i get fruits and vanilla.

jercraigs (8670) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2006
Michigan Brewers Festival 2006. Hazy dark brown body. Aroma of sweet mocha and hazelnut. Flavour is a bit rough/sharp, some sweet malt and a very dilute roast. Average palate is a touch thin. I had hoped for more. 7/3/6/3/13

Michigan BGF 06, Day2: My last brew of the fest (gotta get one more stoutie rating, ha!). Deep black with small frothy tan head and some lace. The aroma has notes of hazelnut (duh), sweet caramel, chocolate, crabapple, and espresso. The taste is sweet and smooth but not cloy or syrupy. A nice grainy and espresso bite towards the finish. The nutty qualities shine more on the aftertaste. Not too shabby at all, I like the hazelnut addition and it adds to the beer.

HogTownHarry (6302) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2006
Draught. At 2006 Michigan Brewers’ Guild Festival. Murky deep brown, no head, kind of sludgey looking. Nutty, very sweet roast malt aroma, very much hazelnut dominated, with some light dry floral hops. Taste was a little wan, I mostly got vague roast malt, hazelnut and some watery nutshell bitterness in the finish. Extremely weak body, flat, bitterness in the finish - ehh, not much here, barely brown ale blood and bone character.

On tap: the aroma consists of sweet chocolate, hazelnut coffee, and vanilla. It’s 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.

Strykzone (5626) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2011
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!

ClarkVV (4353) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Draught pint at the brewery on 5/12/06. Deep, midnight-black beer is opaque and almost looks chewy-thick from just the appearance. Creamy-caramel head is fairly well-retained, though not much lacing sticks. Nose alerts to the presence of hazelntu immediately, with lactose-like sugars, oddly enough, followed by a crunchy, not quite acrid, roastiness that has notes of heavy coffee and hersheys syrup fudge, bolstered by hazelnuts. Well I would rate the rest of this, it’s lovely and tastefully done, but I have to go drink a Drie Fonteinen beer. (and keep that nitro off of this!)

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.
