Kauge (1451) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 12, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2016 Bottle from Uba ja Humal in Tallinn (€ 3.90). BB 06.2016. Pours brown with a rusty orange hue. The head’s beige, fluffy, drops to leave isets and very little lace. The aroma is unsurprisingly hazelnutty, at points rather pleasant, then seeming artificially sweet... Earthy with a herbal moment... Not too keen on this. Tastes too damn sweet and nutty, somewhat caramelly, and again, finishing with that earthy-herbal bitterness. Thin, near flat carbonation. Thin body too. Hazelnut skin dry on the palate. I’m glad I tried it even though I’m no fan of such stuff.

From bottle. Pours rich brown with head that’s gone in no time. Strong nutty aroma and flavor. Very sweet almost sickly. Unique but lacked balance for mine; too sweet

superspak (4406) - Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2016
12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep ruby red/brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big caramel, hazelnut, brown sugar, brown bread, toffee, toasted biscuit, light chocolate, herbal, floral, and nutty/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balanced of dark/bready malt, hazelnut, and light earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big caramel, hazelnut, brown sugar, brown bread, toffee, toasted biscuit, light chocolate, herbal, floral, and nutty/toasted earthiness. Slight herbal hop and roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, hazelnut, brown sugar, brown bread, toffee, toasted biscuit, light chocolate, and nutty/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, hazelnut, and light earthy hop flavors; with a good bitter/sweet balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and lightly silky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent brown ale! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, hazelnut, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

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.

weitz15 (530) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 27, 2016
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 (642) - 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.
