Bottl from Rehills, Nwcastle. A hazy red-brown coloured beer that has a thin white head. It has a very rich hazelnut and nutty flavour with chocolate notes and a malty, nutty roasted finish. Unusual and excellent!

rosenbergh (8066) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 11, 2015
12 oz bottle. BBE 04/2015. At the Majatalo, Tampere, Finland. Hazy brown colour with a tiny tan head. Hazelnut, chocolate, sweetness and some maltiness in the aroma. Not bad. The flavour is hazelnut, chocolate, malt, sugary sweetness and mild bitterness. Watery. Thin for a 6.2% brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NikkTwist (1886) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2015
Draft at Moriartys. Very dark slightly hazy copper that starts with a light tan foam that mostly disappears. Strong solid flavors of hazelnuts and semi-sweet chocolate. Ergo Nutella. Nice dark malts. Hint of burnt peanut shells. Impressed with how clean the flavors are. No bad notes. Admittedly not overly complex but bests most other chocolate hazelnut beers I have had. Nearly a Porter, billed as a Brown Ale is being pleasantly modest. Would love to see Rogue try an Oatmeal Stout with these same flavors.

Pedrens (140) - SPAIN - APR 5, 2015
Botella 33 cl. Cokor marron oscuro con espuma beige, media formacion y persistencia. El aroma demasiado dominado por la avellana, recuerda a frangelico o licor similar de fondo buena carga de maltas, cuando oxigena recuerda a madera tb, bizcocho. En boca aceitosa cremosa, donde esta muy presente la avellana, pero tiene mas gracia hay buen equilibrio con las maltas y lúpulos. Final mas maltoso no demasiado largo. Sin ser de mi devoción las Birras con extractos, creo q esta bastante rica y muy bien hecha.

Ik kan helaas niks over dit biertje schrijven omdat ik het in Nederland heb gedronken en geen info heb opgeschreven. Wat ik wel heb gedaan is een cijfer gegeven. Ik hoop dat ik hierdoor genoeg info voor mezelf heb creëert.

alteregoo (213) - POLAND - APR 3, 2015
Piana beżowa, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, nietrwała, pozostaje w postaci kożuszka. Barwa brązowa, herbaciana, mętna. W aromacie faktycznie na pierwszym planie orzechy laskowe, gdzieś dalej toffi, mleczna czekolada i kawa cappuccino. W smaku intensywny orzech laskowy przykrywa całą resztę. Piwo nie jest słodkie, jest za to lekka kwaskowatość od ciemnych słodów, karmel, krówka i minimalna korzenna goryczka. Wysycenie średnie. W afterteasie placek orzechowy ze sztucznym olejkiem. Generalnie dość duże rozczarowanie - piwo jest wodniste, nienaturalnie orzechowe, ani wytrawne, ani deserowe. Pijalność raczej niska z uwagi na powyższe...

muffel (144) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - APR 1, 2015
On tap at Matchbox, Washington DC. Cloudy dark brown color with a small, light beige head that leaves a little lacing. Mild carbonation and thin to medium body. Strong hazelnut aroma. Flavor is hazelnut, milk chocolate, caramel and sweet malts. Bittersweet malty aftertaste. Could’ve done with slightly less hazelnut extract.

Pours dark brown, hazy with a super thin head. Aroma has already some hazelnut, feels like Christmas, super nutty. Taste is also full of hazelnut, loads of vanilla. Doesn’t really feel like a beer but more like a spiced and chilled Christmas drink. Aftertaste is drier, lasts long. Hmm, I am actually not sure if I like this that much, bit too Christmasy for me, wasn’t really expecting this. Hazelnut does not feel very natural as well, more like the flavour I get when I put a few drops of hazelnut extract into my coffee.
