Simply the best that the Hideout has to offer, If youríe in Western Michigan, get your ass to the Hideout to try this one. You will not be disappointed. Donít drink too much. It goes down easily. Donít listen to all the other pretentious assholes that are on this site, If you want a good beer, try this one. If you donít like it. Youíre a douche bag.

On tap at the Hideout. Itís generally available on both CO2 and Nitrous. Iíve 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 canít 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 doesnít 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!

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.

Very good all around. Deep black, that is smooth with the nitro pour. Rich creamy tan head. The hazelnut is present and just at the right level so as not to be too much in either aroma or taste. Probably a little rich so as you wonít have too many at one sitting, but a great way to finish the night.

Delicious and tastefully done. Pours a nice deep black with thcik tan head. Nose is awesome espressor and chocolate, with a thin fain air of well done hazelnut. Definitely no artificial flavor syrup in this one. taste is more of the same, with a nice bold acidic espresso note followed by a warm creamy hazelnut that lingers for a few minutes after each sip. Smooth going down. Yum yum.
