3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the tasting room in St. Pete, FL. Snifter. Pours a deep brown, nearly black opaque with a thin eggshell head. Some very mild lacing. The aroma is mostly roasted malt and hazelnut (the Nutella.) Taste is very hazelnut with roasted malts and a hint of vanilla cream. If you like hazelnut, you’d like this. If not skip it. Medium body, light carbonation. Clean finish.

Pours unclear thick dark and murky brownish black with a small cream beige head. Aroma brings clean smooth sweet nutty notes, like a fresh hazelnut dream. Flavor brings creamy nutty flavors as well, like a hazelnut wafer in your mouth.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample from growler at Kurtkeller 005: Coffee-tastic 01 on 02/08/2014. The beer pours a dark brown color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass, as well as a bit of staining. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt and hazelnuts. Medium-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of chocolate malt, hazelnuts and mild coffee. The finish is sweet with a lingering Nutella® aftertaste. As advertised, a tasty beer all around.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2014 Wow! I want to lick the inside of the glass. This is one SEXY porter. The aroma and palate are out of this world. The flavor is sweet but not sickly. SO DAMN GOOD!

I've said it before and I'll say it again-Rapp beats Cigar City time and time again. This is the best porter I've ever had, hands down.

Hazelnut dominates the chocolate and rich malt in taste, and even more so in aroma. A little thin without the bitterness of a porter. More malt and this would be fantastic

Snifter pour at the brewery. Nose is sweet dark malts, chocolate, smooth hazelnut. Flavor has mild roasted malts with more sweet chocolate. Hazelnut presence is there for sure. Medium body with a nitro pour. Not a bad drink overall.

Tap at Rapp thanks to tastybeer. Pours a clear deep inky red with minimal foam. Nose is decadent Nutella, rich and powerful chocolate hazelnut. Taste is thinner than expected, bright cherry with malted milk ball. Palate is pretty spot on and doesn’t go chalky, mealy. Pretty yummy.

draft at Rapp, Tons of flavors, never had nutella, big chocolate &hazelnut aromas & flavors. Dessert beer, Hazelnut flavors shine & pair phenomenally with the chocolate. Very well made, medium bodied, seek this out
