2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2007 Brunlig øl uden skum.
Duften er af karamel og et streif af hasselnød.
Smagen er ligeså, dog en anelse røget og bitter-sur. Virker som opvaskevand med smag...
Megen lidt kulsyre.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Aroma of malt and nuts, brown sugar, choclate, and a little roast. Poured dark brown in color with a litte ruby too. Nice to look at. Almost opaque but you can see through when held up to a light. Small, rocky, light brown head that diminished quickly. No lacing. Complex flavor with malty hints of hazelnut, nut, roast, choclate, cream, vanilla and oreo cookies. Heavily sweet but neither bitter not sour. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Finish is sweet and short. Overall, nice flavor but too sweet and no hops.

Had it many times before, but never bothered to rate it. Pours out a nice dark brown color with a sweet aroma balanced by some chocolate. The taste is very complex, but smooth. Flavors are nice with notes of hazelnut, coffee, choclate. Flavors all complimented one another perfectly. Nice brew

This had a small head.I like head,but not too much,as it takes away from the main pleasure.The color was very dark brown.Not much in the aroma dept,probably due to the lack of head.It tasted as promised with a hazelnut tinge.This is the best brown ale I have had.I love hazelnuts with chocolate,so I guess you need to drink this with your chocolate cake or candy bar.It has a sticky,hazelnut finish.Nice!!I guess I will have to see what ’OMHPER’ rated as being better than this,since he was so down on American beers-I hope it wasn’t Newcastle.Do I smell a snob??He rated this higher than Newcastle,but it’s Brittish.

22 oz bomber. Pours a dark brown with a rich, full light brown head. Aroma of hazelnuts, coffee, and chocolate. Great malty flavor which is matched perfectly with the hazelnut. I enjoyed this beer very much.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells sweet, malty, and nutty. Dark brown body that light can only be seen through slightly. Head is about an inch thick give or take, and dissipates slowly. Tastes sweet with malt and nut dominating. Not really my kind of thing (I’m not that big on brown ales), but definitely a decent beer. The hazelnut extract makes the beer - it is a nice touch. Well-made and well-done.

pours a dark brown with ruby highlights, small tan head, medium carbonation. Aroma is coffee and hazelnut, obviously. Some malt in the aroma also. Taste is nutty, sweet malt, with a good amount of hazelnut throughout the taste. my favorite hazelnut beer, thus far.

Bomber. Pours a clear brown with a rocky tan head. Aroma of hazelnuts and vanilla. Medium body an carbonation. The taste is lightly sweet with hazelnuts, toffee, hazelnuts, vanilla, hazelnuts, chocolate and maybe a dash of smoke. The finish hazel-nutty, malty and lightly spicy. Is it one dimensional? Kinda, but the nuttiness though pervasive really isn’t overbearing. A nice change of pace beer.

Brownish red with big beige head (sounds a bit like an s.t.d.). Chocolate, raisins, figs in aroma. Chocolate and roasted nuts (again: s.t.d.) with a lot of malt flavour. Nice one (not an s.t.d.-remark you hear very often).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown, light brown head. It has a decent scent of nutty and chocolatey malts. Head dicepates to a film. This beer is all malt. A nutty bite, with slight cocoa aspects and a long lasting flavor. This beer is pleasant and smooth, but it’s thin and one-dimensional. It’s missing something that I can’t quite figure out, however, it’s close to being a good one.
