On draft at Aqueous, Nemacolin. Poured hazy brown with thin brown head. Flavor is of roasted malt, chocolate, toffee, woody, and plenty nutty. Medium bodied. Really a fine beer if nuts are your thing.

Nice nutty, sweet flavor. Plenty of chocolate as well as hazelnut. Enough hops to keep it balanced and not too sweet. My wife likes it too; a good beer for everybody.

A distinctly pleasant surprise to find this so far from home in one of my locals in Christchurch. Well, it des what it says on the label: itís ruby-brown in colour with an off-white head that budgeted off in short order. This was poured to cold to ascertain the aroma at first, but as they came forth there was a lush nutty, chocolate cocoa that set the appearance off nicely. The flavours were similar with very subtle bitterness. A delight of a pint, best suited to warmer serving in Autumn.

pours a dark brown color with a beige head that did not stay long, only to leave a ring around the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, nuts and herbs. Taste of roasted malts, nuts, herbs, hints of coffee and chocolate, and brown toast. Light carbonation and a little watery finish. Nice light tasty beer, nice balance of flavors, a little too light overall. Nice enjoyable beer,

Too dark for me to see now. Love the hazelnut flavor and very smooth. No real hoppiness. Still very pleasant.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap version much more aromatic than bottled. AND if you drink parallel with decent IPA, IPAS intense hoppy character, highlights brown ales nuttiness even more. So.. intense nuts, with quite intense malt background, bit roasted, some wood, quite low on hops, but enough for balance (I balanced it even more with IIPA :D ) Sweetish with moderate bitterness. Quite smooth. Very interesting and enjoyable brew

Bottle into pint glass, cloudy copper-brown color with tan head. Aroma of hazelnuts, chocolate and rich caramel malt. Taste adds notes of toast and chocolate milk. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy with light roasty sweet finish. Nutella beer describes this pretty well, I found it quite tasty.
