Not a traditional brown ale, but then the name should give that away. The mouthfeel and head remind me of a beer approaching a stout or robust porter. I found the beer to be very drinkable and the non-beer drinkers in my house liked their first sips. But the hazelnut flavoring does not add to the beer in my opinion. But then I’m a bit of a purist and don’t appreciate flavorings added to my beer.

Red-brown clear beer with little head and a sweet nutty malt aroma. Flavour is nutty malt with a touch of caramel and coffee. Light and mellow given its strength.

Monchito_IPA (156) - SPAIN - OCT 9, 2014
Color caoba oscuro, espuma poco abundante que desaparece rápido. Aroma tostado, ahumado, y un obvio aroma a avellana, a crema de avellana más bien. En boca la avellana, dulce, destaca, se aprecia la malta y el tostado, con un final ligeramente amargo. Poco cuerpo para el alcohol que tiene, se bebe en tragos peligrosamente largos. Le puede gustar a todo el mundo, yo hecho en falta una buena espuma y algo más de cuerpo.

Drank out of a mug. Wonderful aromas of both hazel nut and caramel. Pours a nice deep brown with a nice light tan. A nice sweet hazelnutty flavor with a slightly dry finish.

Procent (174) - POLAND - OCT 6, 2014
Głęboki aromat orzechów, a także chlebowy, biszkoptowy, lekki karmel i lekki chmiel w tle. Kolor brązowy, piwo przejrzyste, piana niewielka, ale kremowa z ładnym lacingiem. W smaku także orzechowe, bardzo łagodne, aksamitne, karmelowe, zdecydowanie słodkie. Goryczka niska, wysycenie niskie, odczucie w ustach pełne. Bardzo dobra, aksamitnie orzechowa kompozycja. Warka do 02.2015r.

It pours a dark amber. There is little lacing. It has the heavy aroma of hazelnut with other malts. It has a heavy hazelnut taste with roasted malts.

Kleurplaatje (49) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2014 Pours a brownish/amber color with slow disappearing brownish and foamy head. Pleasant aromas of caramel and nuts and chocolate... Clearly malty though. Tastes quite roasty in the beginning, but it quickly evolves into a pleasant slightly bitter and mildly sweet ’creamy’ coffee/nutty-like aftertaste which lingers quite long. Strong notes of the present hazelnuts and the sweetness of caramel. Medium bodied, very thin, bit watery and disappointing texture and lively carbonated. Not a bad beer. Certainly tasty on a rainy day in October, but I missed something. I would’ve loved a fuller body and a more creamier texture. It would do better justice to the mouthfeel and the appearance in general. But besides that, I loved the bottle.

KeefOz (969) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2014
Poured a translucent mid-brown colour with a one- to two-finger light brown frothy head that retained well and laced well. Carbonation high and fine. Aroma quite sweet with hazelnut plus hints of molasses, chocolate and vanilla. Taste of sweet hazelnut, slight chocolate and it fades to a very slight bitterness. Light body. Smooth, slightly creamy with hazelnut on the finish. Quite different. Quite good.

Butelka 0.33L
Wygląd: Klarowne, brunatne/ciemnomiedziane z rubinowym prześwitem. Piana jasnokremowa, średnioobfita, opada dość szybko, niewielki lacing.
Aromat: Orzechy laskowe, karmel, toffee, wafle, ciastko zbożowe, czekolada, nugat. Dość słodki aromat, jakby syropu.
Smak: Chleb z orzechami, karmel, ciastko zbożowe z orzechami, czekolada. Miły czekoladowy posmak zostaje w ustach. Lekko słodkie ale nie tak jak w aromacie. Goryczka niska.
Odczucie: Nasycenie CO2 lekko gryzące, umiarkowanie wysokie, ciało średnie.
Całość: Bardzo ciekawe, deserowe brown ale, stosunkowo słodkie ale przyjemnie. Dobre na chłodne wieczory jesienne do powolnego picia i delektowania się.
