This pours a very dark amber-brown with a relatively weak and diminishing off white head. The nose is very malty with strong hints of brown sugar and perhaps mahagony. The flavors are relatively subtle: there is a definite brown sugar and woodiness upfront, a surprisingly German-tasting maltiness in the middle, and the bitterness is more of a tart sourness that lingers in the end. Thereís a strong dark chocolate presence in there also that makes it strongly resemble a porter. This is a very good beer.

Nice brown/dark amber color. Smells sweet, malts, caramel. Tastes obviously nutty, sweet hazelnut, a little biscuit/roast in the back. Very smooth. Excellent beer. Bottles at Redlight Redlight in Winter Park, Fl.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUL 4, 2005
(22 oz. bottle) Pours a deep coppery brown, nice biscuit head, some lacing. Notes of caramel and coffee. Mouthfeel mostly smooth, a little fizzy. Flavor, smoothness and whole experience gets better as you drink it. I taste more coffee and chocolate than nuttiness though. Mmm yummy smooth.

Pours brown with a minimal head. Interesting aroma of hazelnut, brown sugar, and malts. Nutty flavor with slight roasted notes and some brown sugar sweetness. Long-lasting aftertaste. Very smooth.

Very nice, creamy and dark with a nice smoky flavour. There is a definite nuttiness to this one that is often lacking in other nut brown beers. Its really very well done. I actually had some packaged incorrectly in the wrong bottle.

twindadplus2 (630) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Deep brown with a small tan head that vanishes quickly. Aroma is mild nutty, roasted malts. Flavors are what really make this one though; Hazelnut, roasted malt, toffee, caramel. Heavy and creamy with just enough hoppy bitterness to keep the finish dry, crisp and smooth. Outstanding!

Ughsmash (7387) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Deep brown pour with a thin creamy head. Hazelnut powered the aroma, followed by some vanilla, sweet malts, and toffee. Hazelnut, brown sugar, and vanilla provided much of the flavor. There was a hint of chocolate. Very smooth mouthfeel and long hazelnut finish... almost like I had just finished a cold cappuccino (but in a good way).

22 oz bottle from Windy City El Cajon. I am not a big brown ale fan. But I may have found one I can stand. Aromas were not much to speak of, caramel and some toffee, but the flavors really kicked in. I first tasted the head and the hazelnut actually surprised me. Then in the beer, hazelnut and vanilla and cream. Very creamy and very smooth. But then that familiar Brown Ale taste to finish it off.... I liked it, but itís still a Brown Ale.
