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 (57) - 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 (994) - 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.

arkurzynski (1614) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Murky amber brown pour. Nose of hazelnut and biscuity toasted malt. Flavor is hazelnut and nutty biscuit/toasted malt. Only light sweetness which makes this more of a success. Light and clean.
