4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
