(Sampled from bottle, thanks Marsiblursi) Clear red-brown color. Tan to brown head. Sweet chocolate, a bit raissin scent. Salty and yet sweet taste. Hazelnut flavored coffee dominates the aftertaste. Mineral water and melted chocolate ice-cream with nuts body and taste. Rather dry finish. Medium low bitterness, normal mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle. Ugly pour, cola coloured with a head that disappears just as quickly. Aroma is malty, toasted nuts, brown sugar, light toffee and some sweetish chocolate. Flavour is similar, chocolate malt, hazelnuts, toffee, bread and toast. Thin bodies, leafy hops through the finish wiht a moderate bitterness. Okay, but not great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle into a Dimpled Mug glass. Pours a very dark brown that isn’t see through. The head is quite creamy and quickly dissapates to the sides of the glass. The aroma is very roasty amd malty with overtones of carmalized malt and nuts. The flavor is actually more roasted than I was expected. It starts off with a tiny bit of a coffee hint that moves into a sweet nutty and roasted malty finish. A hop note kicks in towards the end of the finish. A very solid and very drinkable brew.

The nut flavor is nicley pronounced. Very smooth. Quite flavorful yet too mild and sweet for my tastes. I prefer the bolder Big Sky Moose Drool Brown Ale I’ve tried.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bomber. Pours a dark sandy brown color with a creamy thick beige brown head. Aroma is of sweet hazelnut cream, malt, fresh caramel and a hint of sweet butter. Taste is very smooth with hints of sweet hazelnut,some malts, chewy caramel and a slight hint of hazelnut roasted coffee beans. Quite enjoyable, but I couldnt drink more than one of these in a sitting.
