hopscotch (9227) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Draft... This beer rocks!… Tar-black pour with a miniscule, fleeting, khaki head. The awesome, decadent aroma is a fusion of hazelnut brownie, caramel and dark-roast coffee. Full-bodied and silky with Key West carbonation. The bittersweet, carbonic flavor boasts Cuban-roast coffee with a shot of delightful hazelnut extract. Finishes burnt and bittersweet with a nutty, dark chocolate aftertaste. Another world class imperial stout from Doug!

HonusWagner (1423) - Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 That sure is a lot of Hazelnut. Smells like hazelnut coffee mixer. Tastes basically the same, with some cocoa and booze layered on. This is basically BA Stout Frangelic Mountain.

Black pour, disappearing brown head. Nose is huuuuge hazelnuts, some coffee, but the hazelnut aroma is ridiculous. The taste is hazelnut butter, sweet coffee, chocolate, some coffee liquer. Smooth medium-full mouthfeel. One of the best 3-4 BA beers I’ve had from Cycle/Peg’s.

Ungstrup (29476) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2013
Draft. A black beer with a dark brown head. Thebaroma has notes of coffee and hazelnuts. The flavor is sweet with coffee and hazelnuts, leading to a dry roasted finish.

Nocturne (833) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 On tap at Mikkeller Bar SF. Darkest brown with a small lighter brown head. An absolutely ridiculous amount of hazelnut in the aroma! Stunning. Super roasty, chocolatey and nutty taste. Light dark fruit and cherry at the fringes. I read that this was barrel aged; what’s most impressive is how the barrel doesn’t hog the limelight but subtly enhances the beer. Although hazelnuts dominate, everything seems to work in harmony. I thought this was absolutely fantastic.

50belair (2355) - Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2013
On tap at Peg’s. Huge hazelnut and coffee aromas. Big coffee, rich hazelnut, luscious dark roasted malts, subtle booze and woody notes. Great mouthfeel and body. Impressive.

oh6gdx (20618) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2013
Draught@Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Pitch black colour, not much head. Aroma is nutty, mild roasted malts, some toffee, chocolate and mild coffee as well. Brilliant! Flavour is very similar, nutty and chocolaty with some toffee, leather and roasted notes kicking in. Beautifully balanced. This was probably my favourite beer over the 3,5 hectic days in Copenhagen during the CPH BF 2013.

pentaz (1240) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2013
Draught @ Mikkellerbar, Viktoriagade. Pours black with a small beige head. "The nut is strong in this one!". Aroma is dominated by hazelnut, chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, wood, coffee, Taste is medium+ sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium+, texture is thick and oily, carbonation is soft. Finishes sweet and roasted. The hazelnut is evident even before you bring the glass to you nose and took all of my attention so I didn’t really enjoy the beer. It’s almost as if somebody has dropped a bottle with hazelnut essence in the batch. Too much nuttiness for me.
