Great beer! Hazelnut flavor actually comes through and adds good character to the beer. Nice dark reddish brown color and an aroma of nuts and malt.

Some roast and light chocolate. Pours dark mahogany with decent head. Caramel and nut. Light bittersweet finish. Bottle pour at senate wildlife event in dc. Very nice for a brown. Drinking on the government’s dime.

Dark brown pour, light tan head. Hazelnut almost overpowers this beer, but it is such a unique flavor that i’ll still give it a high mark. Mild spices in the finish.

janubio (608) - SPAIN - FEB 24, 2016
Pours an amber colour, with a small white head that fades soon, leaving a ring and lace. Smell of chocolate, spices, cherries, nuts. Medium body and average carbonation. Taste of chocolate, cherries, hints of nuts.

Zymurgeist2 (1628) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Tap at Harry’s Hofbrau in San Jose. Aroma is a rich hazelnut and sweet malt both showing strongly. Clear brown with tan head. Taste is delicate nuttiness that really marries well with the malt. Moderate residual sweetness and crystal malt flavors are very nice. This was very enjoyable.

adasko (1522) - Poznan, POLAND - FEB 17, 2016
Pours hazy, dark copper color. rather poor head. Really nice malty, caramel and hazelnut aroma. Very pleasant, not to sweet. Almost exactly the same in the taste but the particular notes are even more intense. Nice mouth feel, a bit over carbonated. Smooth and soft bitterness in the aftertaste. Quite good beer, but I’m rather disappointed that it was brewed with hazelnut extract. It sounds just too easy...

huineman (518) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 8, 2016
Pours brownish amber with not very long-lasting tan head. Aroma is mostly nutty: hazelnut (of course), walnut, chocolate, prunes, figtree leaf, honey, brown sugar. Well balanced in the mouth: seems sweet due to its aroma, but it’s not. Medium bitterness.

tarmok (1002) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 30, 2016
