22oz. Bottle. Not a style I tend to seek out but it came highly recommended. Disappointment ensued. It pours a reasonably attractive brown with a swiftly vanishing head. The nose is artificial nuts, maple syrup, and sickly sweet caramel candy. The flavour is not far removed though painfully one dimensional with a mouthfeel somewhat flat and syrupy. I’d have a hard time finishing a 12oz bottle of this, much less 22ozs.

Rich in flavor and complexity, well balanced and crafted, this is certainly the best of this style that I have come across.

Had a keg in my frige. It ’went’ faster than a keg of Guinness. Truly a fantastic beer. Was my first nut ale here at the house. Definately my all time favorite nut brown. Well worth the $147 I paid for the keg

Bottle (650ml). Been saving this one for a while ... Poured bubbly hazy reddish-brown with a small light brown fizzy diminishing head. Bready aroma of roast malt, roasted nuts and chocolate - a wisp of hops, and a rich, oily malt aroma that builds as it warms. Taste is sweet roast nutty malt, chocolate, toffee, a hint of grape, and just enough bitterness backing it to keep it from being runaway sweet - very doughy and rich. Mouthfeel is fizzy, average body, very sticky - okay, it’s a little watery, but still ... a damn fine and unique brown ale. And I have a whole bomber to drink! Prosit!

Sincere (145) - wichita, Kansas, USA - FEB 11, 2006
Pours a dark amber color, with a copper colored head that dissapates quickly. Smells like chocolate and nuts, the odor just floods the nose. It has a very distinct hazelnut taste, with strong hints of chocolate and carmel. Great mouthfeel, through and through. Very complex, and very enjoyable.

ElPresidente1984 (173) - Maine, USA - FEB 10, 2006
bottle, pours dark brown, with a medium head. aroma is of sweet caramel, brown sugar and nuts. taste is very unique. the hazelnut flavor is dominant. flavor is vary good, but seems slightly simple. you have to wait a minute between sips or you lreally loose the flavor and it starts to taste alot more watery. but if you have patients and take it slow, this beer will not dissapoint.

Pours a reddish brown with a small head. Smells like sweet maple syrup and nuts. It has a rich hazelnut flavor complimented by maple and caramel. It was a little too sweet but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2006 to be fair, the aroma was somewhat muted by a very cold storing temperature and glass. unimpressive head, large sized bubbles. relatively effervescent beer, with good coloring. the real highlight is the flavor. not particularly a brown ale fan, the first words out of my mouth to my friends were "how could anybody not like this beer?" it’s delicious, and the nut flavour (not sure about the hazelnut, particularly), is substantial but not overpronounced. great mouth feel. rerate: wonderful aroma and a slightly sweet taste, but ultimately a brilliantly crafted beer.

Bottle: Dark brown colour, pours a beige heavy head but quickly fades. Aroma is spectacular, nutty, chocolate, sweet. Taste is silky, creamy and smooth, strong notes of hazelnut; truly a World Champion.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark reddish-brown with a small diminishing white head. Nice aroma of caramel malt, nuts and maybe even some chocolate. Delicious flavour of hazelnuts, caramel malt, roasted malt and a nice bitterness in the finish. Body’s a little thin but the mouthfeel is nice and creamy. If only all Nut Browns were this good, this is definitely the best one I’ve ever had. Great stuff.
