Bottled. Brownish amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma of caramel, candy sugar, toffee and alcohol. Flavour is plum, grass, alcohol, caramel, some flowery hops and sugar. Quite much in it, and also very wellbalanced.

Another personal favourite. I reckon it is not everyone’s cup of tea, but I do so fancy the slight sweetness and clear Nutella overtones in the taste. Some malt, as well, and so very smooth. I could session this ale for a fornight.

The pinnacle of the brown ale world...draft at The Usual Suspects in Asheville, NC many times during my college career...intense caramel and hazelnut flavor, every brown ale should aspire to this masterpiece.

Wow this is one of the more original tasting beers I’ve had! Earthy aroma with some cherries. Reddish brown with a nice real head. Malty taste and can really taste the chocolate malt. Nutty taste towards the end along with a tiny bit of grain and hops. A tiny bit thin of a beer but still very worthwhile.

I didn’t know what to expect from this beer, the last time I had hazlenut flavor was in my coffee. Poured a brown/red with an off white head. Aroma of a mellow hazlenut, caramel and malts was quite intoxicating in itself. The flavor was nutty, earthy and malty with a slight bitterness in the end, leaving a hazlenut aftertaste. I thought it would make a nice dessert beer, but I doubt I would drink more than one at a sitting

bottle. cranberry/brown pour with thin bubbled tan head. caramel, hazelnut, malts, sugar, oak and hop aroma. creamy taste with hazelnut, sugar and malts. lingering aftertaste. Reminds me of flavored coffee.

I used to really like this. Maybe it was because one version of it has Iron Chef’s Miromoto on the bottle. Image is everything! Otherwise, a decent brown.
