Bought at a specialty beer store. Pours dark with a tan head with no lacing and slowly dissipates. Smells of chocolate, earthiness, hazelnut, dash of caramel and has some sweetness a bit like brown sugar. Tastes absolutely AMAZING! Just as it smells with a bitter ’cookie’ finish. Only strike is that it goes down a little watery, but it’s forgivable. I really honestly had to look hard for a flaw with this amazing beer. Overall? Absolutely GREAT! This is just another example of brewers knowing what they’re doing to produce a fine product!

polo_marco (320) - milton, Vermont, USA - APR 4, 2016
Smells of hazelnut choolate and sweet malts. Nice ripe brown color. Deep rich nutty taste of the hazelnut with chcocolate hint in the middle finishing off with a sweet malt taste. Full body with a lighter carbonation which suites this beer. Big hazelnut fan which this beer satisfies my palate for being a big coffee drinker it works. Nice brew!

cwill (68) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2016
Poured from growler filled at Ron’s bar and grill. Hazy brown color with small tan head and no lacing. Smells phenomenal with aromas of hazelnuts, roasted malt, caramel and subtle hits of chocolate. Taste follows the nose, but the mouth feel a bit watered down and thin in compared to the way it smells. Overall it is a very unique and tasty brown ale that smells like a much bigger beer

guzgorog (719) - FRANCE - APR 2, 2016
Magnifique robe brune caramel lipide avec des reflets rouges, fine mousse blanche qui ne tient pas. Nez noisette, biscuit et chocolat. Bouche sur la vanille et les noisettes, une pointe de caramel, les houblons ne s’expriment pas vraiment. Carbo limite, longueur moyenne, corps faible. Une belle bière aux saveurs de noisette, agréable mais manque un peu de corps et de complexité.

Cocoa and vanilla, not a sweet as I remembered. Then comes the toasty hazelnut. Not too complex, very drinkable and enjoyable.

Bottle. Dark brown body with a small head. Aroma has plenty of sweet toffee with a light hazelnut touch. Sweet malty and caramelly taste, the hazelnut part adds some, well... nuttiness. Quite balanced and easily drinkable, it’s sweet but within reasonable limits (at least on my scale but I’m generally fond of sweet beers). Finish resembles dark cookies with hazelnuts. Kind of simple but tasty.

puren (724) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - MAR 18, 2016
klarowne, ciemnobursztynowe / brązowe, piana niezbyt obfita, szybko spada do zera;
średnio intensywny, ale zdecydowanie orzechowy, choć ciężko jednoznacznie wskazać na orzech laskowy, poza tym jest ciemny karmel, po ogrzaniu w nozdrza bije syntetyczna słodka wanilia;
ciało niskie ku średniemu, wysokie nasycenie, wyklejanie w ustach, finisz orzechowo-goryczkowy;
dość wyraźny - na początku kwaskowy palonymi słodami, potem w dziwny sposób orzechowy, pomieszany z czekoladą, przez chwilę karmelowy, po czym na dłuższą chwilę czuć paloną trochę kawową goryczkę;
aromat i smak orzechów jest sztuczny i nachalny.

Kauge (1617) - 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.
