Off white head, nice retention. Heavy red color with brown accents. Nice malt aroma with a deep nuttiness. Little to no hop presence in the aroma. Full mouthfeel, almost like a latte. Malty nose with nut notes, continues subtley until an immense burst of hazelnut in the finish. Another very coffee-like sensation, having that hazelnut flavor linger with some malt backing. This beer really tastes like a smooth beer hazelnut latte. Surprisingly refreshing.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2008 Second time around with a head to head match up with New Glarus Nut Brown I was stunned that this beer had no body. Good nut flavor but no substace. I would not, not drink it if you offered it to me though!!

I sampled the 1 pt. 0.9 fl. oz. bottle, which pours a slightly cloudy, dark copper colored body with a small, quickly vanishing tan head; there was no appreciable lacing. The aroma is rich with nuts and chocolate, while the palate entry is lightly sweet. Mid-palate also reveals nuts and milk chocolate, but also vanilla and caramel. The finish is malty with only light hops. This is a medium-bodied ale that is best enjoyed at 50F-60F.

Malt and nut aroma ,distinct but not strongtaste is smooth creamy carmel vanilla and hazelnut. This is hard to score, because I really don’t like hazelnut coffee, but I know this is a well made beer, and if I liked hazelnut, I would have rated this very high

Tasted like Frangelico. Not nearly as much aroma as you would expect though (very light and almost non-existent. Not nearly as sweet or as heavy as I expected. In fact, the mouth feel was a little watery. I thought it tasted and smelled delicious. Not what I think of though when I think of a brown ale. I would buy again and again but must be drunk in the right context. I think it would be difficult to pair with foods other than desserts (although it’s not that sweet). I really enjoyed it.

Pours brown with a thick tan head that is moderately diminishing. Nose is cream and hazelnut. The flavor is the same, with a nice coffee balance and hops at the end. Sweet and creamy, very good mouthfeel. Not many bubbles. Yum.

Blackish and ruddy dark brown that was clear until I poured in the brown yeast. Head was light brown, but receded to absolutely nothing after not long. Inviting aroma of toasted hazlenuts, bourbon, vanilla, and a little woodsmoke. Packed with flavour: hazlenut, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, roasted and rauch-malt. All said, it has not been lost that this is a sweet brown ale. There is some faint hops flavour and a tiny bit of bitterness. Medium to full body with low to mild carbonation.
