Rich malts create a toffee & butterscotch flavor; combined with hazelnuts this brown ale has a great nutty twist, like Hazel herself!

Amber-brown, off white head. Syrupy, roast, caramel, and spice aroma. Medium bodied, vanilla, like aroma. Ok balance, malt dominant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JMerritt (1890) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2015
On tap at Buffalo Philís in the Dells. Very dark brown, pretty much black, with a frothy, light brown head. Very rich hazelnut aroma with light cocoa, mild coffee and a little vanilla. Nutty sweet flavor is almost peanut buttery in its thickness, and cocoa lends a slightly earthy finish. Quite good!

cards04 (2350) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
One of the better beers of the night. Great hazelnut coffee aromas. The flavors actually mimic the aromas. Sweet and roasty hazelnut flavors. Coffee too. Very nice.

Frozer (203) - Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Dark coffee brown color with tan head. Very strong Hazelnut aroma. Flavor is dominated by Hazelnut. Some chocolate in the background. The amount of Hazelnut flavor makes this beer stand out.

nuplastikk (5072) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2014
12oz bottle. Unfiltered opaque burgundy brown body. Soda-like head mostly fades away after a few minutes. Massive hazelnut aroma. Massive hazelnut flavor. Big nutty tones, pretty unique. Besides that there isnít a whole lot going on, some chocolate and presumably amber malt to round it out. I somehow doubt there isnít some sort of flavor extract at play here, but I still kind of dig it, could see myself ordering another one.

Skyview (5310) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2013
On draught at the Moosejaw brewpub in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. Pours a clear dark brownish copper colored brew with a creamy beige head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of hazelnuts and praline, roasted caramel malt and floral hops. Taste is medium to full bodied, soft carbonation with more distinct praline/hazelnut flavors, caramel and a touch of citrus. Finish has a short lived noble hop bitterness with a lingering praline and caramel aftertaste. Man, does this remind me of the Stuckeyís old pecan log rolls from years past.
