COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
100% Wisconsin malt of six different varieties impart the natural toasted color to the bottle conditioned unfiltered ale. Clean hazelnut notes result from these carefully chosen barley malts. Hops from Slovenia, Bavaria and the Pacific Northwest give Fat Squirrel its backbone.

ccex (982) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2015
12 oz. bottle pours a dark reddish/brown with small beige head that stays as a ring and leaves spots of lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, brown sugar, and hazelnut. Taste is slightly sweet with a slightly nutty finish and almost spicy aftertaste. Body is medium without much carbonation. Mouthfeel is almost creamy. Very satisfying. and it gets better as it warms up a bit.

Really good full bodied dark beer definately nutty, but not overpowering, light aftertaste - best that New Glarus makes IMHO.

ARH (615) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2015
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. Aromatics of sugary, warm baking spices, and fruits come out first, then turn more malty and roasted by mid sample. It pours a clear, oily orange brown with an off-white, foamy head that retains a medium ring with a light web surface, and leaves behind a snowy lace on the glass. Medium sweet and bitter balance out the taste of this beer. It’s smooth, with an almost creamy carbonation, and a medium light body containing notes of roasted nuts. As it warms the palate picks up more caramel. It finishes dry and spicy with a mildly astringent and toasted bread aftertaste that mellows quickly. After an extended period, the aftertaste comes through as a light spiciness.

"poured light for a brown ale. mahogony. smelled of pleasant sweet malt and nuts. nice malt profile in the nose and flavor. clean hazelnut flavor. not as "stand up and take notice" as say, a Rogue Hazelnut brown, but above average with a smooth finish."

Thanks to HisBoyElroy on the split. This beer pours a very dark red color with minimal head. It has a fresh light hop aroma. Not a whole ton of flavor. A bit of a copper hop note with a refreshing quenching flavor. A slight amber flavor. Average beer here to me yet unique.
