Aroma of fresh bread, nuts (hazelnut), and maplesyrup. Dark brown, almost black colour with a almost white head. Wow what a special taste. Hazulnuts are fully present! Really round flavour, its like nutella :) also present are popcorn, bread, maple, white chocolate. Aftertaste like biscuits, a bit dry and again nutty. Really interesting!

DonPiano (60) - GERMANY - MAY 10, 2015
Dark ember colored beer with a clear white head. Great taste and smell of roasted hazelnuts combined with a good and well balanced brown ale flavours. All in all a solid and good beer with hazelnut aromas.

Bosco (235) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Dark brown, almost clear with a slight haze. Short lived head that persists around edge of the glass. Carmel, sweet, hazelnut, toffee, candy bar. Over carbonated. Finish has a familiar taste that I just can’t name right now. 12oz bottle gifted from friends for my birthday.

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2015
Medium beige head. Clear brown body. Caramelly popcorn aroma with thick rough nutty notes. Dryish roasty nutty popcorn taste. Mid-to-thin body. Mild, soft, slick mouthfeel. Dryish earthy popcorn and perfumy butterscotch aftertaste. Lingering buttery hazelnut and vanilla finish. Awful. Artificial. Drainpour. (0.355l bottle, from Vinbudin Kringlan, Reykjavik. Label said 6.2%.)

On tap at Llywelyns. It poured a brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was very malty with some nuts. The taste was very nutty with malts, caramel, earthy hops and woody notes. It had a medium body with medium carbonation. Tasty.
